This week I am doing a project with my AP Government course using iMovie. A few of my students want to get videos from their phones and computers on the school ipad and the solution is to use Dropbox. Through dropbox can download video directly to your iPad over wi-fi or 3G without using iTunes. The trick is to first upload video to your Dropbox account and then favorite it (highlight the star) in iPad dropbox app. The simple act of favoriting the video or file in Dropbox begins the download process. Your video or file is instantly saved to your iPad.
How can you save a video from Youtube to your iPad?
- Go to Keepvid on your desktop and save your video as an mp4.
- Upload to your Dropbox account.
- Find your video on the iPad app and favorite it (check the star)
Your video will then download to your iPad. No need to iTunes and cords.
