Your local files
All the videos stored on your device are shown here in three sections. My Documents is the stuff you have transferred in from another device, the iPod Library includes any downloaded or purchased videos and the Camera Videos area will show you anything recorded with your onboard camera.
The file list
Any collection of video or music files is shown here and a list can be sorted by name, date, size or kind. There’s even a text search field in case you want to go straight to a specific file. You can play any file by tapping on its name.
You will probably want to create some playlists if you have more than a few files on your device and you can do this by tapping the Add To Playlist button next to the name of any video or audio file. If a file lives on another device such as a wireless hard drive, the download button here lets you quickly copy it over.
oPlayer automatically sees wireless devices broadcasting on your local network that have file sharing enabled. This might typically mean your computer but it can also be any kind of wireless hard drive. Tap on a device and enter login details and you can access its contents.
oPlayer can let you search the iTunes Store for videos and music, and will transfer them to you if you wish to buy anything. Any content downloaded or rented from the store can be viewed in a special playlist inside the app. This section also contains a download manager.
Tap the Wi-Fi button to generate addresses that you can enter into your computer’s browser to transfer video files manually between devices. It’s possible to transfer them back from your iPad or iPhone to the computer, using the web interface. It’s quicker and easier than syncing iTunes.
