    I got a course that I want to watch the video on my ipad but I dont know how to get them to the ipad, unzip them then watch them. I uploaded the zipped videos to google drive, now I dont know what to do. I bought some app for the ipad called Unarchiver but either I dont know how to use it or it doesnt work properly. Probably the former. Anyways can someone please tell me step to step what to do. Firs I need to get them to Ipad, then unzip them, then watch. I cannot email the files as they are too big. Thanks!

    you need to unzip it first on your computer, then you need to covert the video to mp4. after that you can import the video via itunes.

    I'm not sure about iOS :)moon:), but with android there are several file manager apps available that can extract compressed file formats. There are also video players that can play different file formats. So if for instance you are downloading the movie straight to your iPad, you shouldn't have to transfer it to your computer and then back again, there should be some solution available in the app store. I'm more of an android guy so I'm not sure the exact name.
