Apologies if this has already been covered.
I’ve just bought a 2gb MyPassport Wireless. I own a 128gb iPad, and use it when offshore to watch movies. I generally fill the iPad up with MKV’s, and play them in my chosen media player. I have a simple app called “Downloads” which is a download manager, but also has a media player. Previously I’ve been able to download films off my NAS at home, and watch them using this app.
On my last trip, I ran out of things to watch… and had very limited internet access.
My idea was to take the WD drive full of films with me, and when I’d watched all the ones on the iPad, I could delete them and transfer them from the WD drive. Obviously downloading them onto the iPad would take 10 mins each rather than streaming them for 2+ hours at a time, so would make the battery much more useful.
I hoped I could just log into the WD drive using a web browser, and simply select a file and download it. Is there any way I can do this?
