At times you may want to download a movie to your iPad. The iPad wasn't really designed to accommodate downloads that are outside of the Apple/iTunes system, but there is a work around.

Install the iCab browser. This is a paid app.

iCab Browser

Install the VLC player. This is a free app.

VLC player

Open the iCab browser. Login the site, and go to the movie that you want to download. Click the ''Film'' link on the site. You will then get a prompt confirming what resolution you want to download. 

The download will then begin. Look at the blue arrow in the upper right hand corner of the iCab browser. When the circle makes the path around the arrow, the download is complete.  

Once complete, to see your download, tap that same arrow. You should see the file displayed.

To play your movie, just tap on the file name. Select "Open File in Other App".

You'll then see your available options. What you see may be different than is shown here, but you should see VLC as an option. Select it by tapping. 

That will launch VLC and it should play your downloaded movie
