If you are planning to go on a long journey and have decided to add some movies to your iPad (iPhone or iPod Touch) so as to make the whole process less boring, then check out these three CopyTrans programs that can easily help you with this task.
How to add videos with CopyTrans Photo
CopyTrans Photo is an obvious and quick solution if you want to transfer video files from your PC to your iOS device. The program supports mov and mp4 formats of up to 1GB regardless of the length of the video. The only thing you should keep in mind is that CopyTrans Photo cannot add videos to the default “Videos” folder on your iPad and you need to create a new one. So here’s how to proceed:
Download CopyTrans Photo.

Start the program. You’ll see the photos and videos from your device on the left and your PC files on the right. Right-click on the empty space below the list of albums on the left of the iPad photo pane and choose “New album”.
Give this album a name.
Drag and drop the movies you want to add to the album and click the “Apply changes” button.
How to transfer movies with CopyTrans Manager
If your videos exceed 1GB, you can use CopyTrans Manager to add them directly to the default “Videos” folder on your device. Here’s how to do:

Alternatively, you can use CopyTrans Apps to transfer videos directly to a video player installed on your iPad. In my case it’s VLC, but this method works with any other player. Follow these quick steps:
