Posted by: 20.11.2017
Greetings to you, fans of tablet computers and smartphones based on the iOS operating system. In today's article I will tell you and show in detail - how download movies on iPad, as well as on the iPhone and iPod. This process is very simple and will not take you much time, literally, about ten to fifteen minutes.
With the development of mobile technologies, the content distribution industry (movies, music, etc.) is also developing among users.. If earlier, in order to watch a movie, you had to go to the cinema, buy a WHS tape (there were such before, some should remember) or a DVD, then now you can quickly download the necessary movie from the Internet, upload it to your mobile device (iPad, iPhone) and Enjoy viewing it anytime, anywhere.
All this, of course, is good and entertaining, but let's return to the topic of the article. Since Apple pursues the policy of closed file system of its devices, it will not be possible to download and watch a movie directly (by analogy with a USB flash drive or hard disk). To download, we need special software from Apple. The program that we need is called iTunes, this tool is absolutely free, you can download it from the official Apple campaign website.
As mentioned above, you can’t throw it without iTunes, and it’s impossible to watch movies on a mobile device. To download the program, follow the steps below.:
- Follow this link - link. Attention: download the program only by the suggested link, otherwise you risk not only catching the virus, but also “infecting” your mobile device;
- Enter your email address in the field provided;
- Click on the big, blue “Download” button.
After the installation file of the program is downloaded to your personal computer, launch it. To install the program, follow the simple instructions on the screen of your monitor.
Upload a video
To add movies to your device, follow these steps:
- Run the program iTunes;
- Press the key combination CTRL + S so that the program displays the side menu, with the help of which we will get access to the library section - films;
- In the side menu (on the left) in the “Media Library” field, select “Movies”;
- Transfer (by analogy with how you transfer files from folder to folder) movie file in the program. You should have the following:
So, the files in the program are added to watch movies, it remains to make a small stroke - add a file from your iTunes library to your mobile device (iPad, iPhone, iPod). Such an operation is called synchronization.
Sync with iTunes
To sync your mobile device with your iTunes library:
- Connect your device (iPad, iPhone, iPod) to a personal computer (on which iTunes is installed) using a USB cable (it came with your iPad, iPhone);
- In iTunes, in the side menu, select your device;
- In the appeared working field, find and click the “Synchronize” button.
After the end of synchronization, the uploaded movie will be available from your gadget (iPad, iPhone). You can find out how to open a video file on iOS in the next section.
Running movies on a mobile device
In order to run the downloaded movie on your device, find the application called “Video” on the desktop of your gadget and launch it. You will see a list of all available, downloaded movies. Select the necessary and run it, now you can watch your favorite movie.
Watching movies online
Besides the fact that you can watch movies by downloading a file with a movie to your device, you can also watch movies via the Internet, i.e. online. In this case, you will not need to download additional files and programs on your computer.
The problem is that iOS devices do not support Flash technology, which is used to play a movie over the Internet. Thus, you will have to search for sites that use HTML5 technology instead of Flash technology. There are many such sites and you can find almost any movie to watch on your mobile device (iPad, iPhone) via the Internet.
Today, this is all, I hope this small, but undoubtedly, useful note has helped you, now you can watch your favorite movies anywhere.
