Can you watch downloaded films on the tv from iPad

I want to purchase the lead that does this but having read the reviews they are saying you can't watch films downloaded from iTunes . This is the whole point of the lead I would have thought. How do I do this is the lead doesn't work.

  • I have found it works with Air Video, which is in two parts, one that sits on your Mac and acts as a server and the IPad resident Air Video player. Additionally, CineXPlayer say they will soon support the Video Dock port. CineXPlayer is and excellent Video App, but currently needs an Itunes connection to download Movies.
    BBC IPlayer works with the IDemoweb App which is a Web Browser App that also supports Video out. Seems to work with most sites that don't require Flash Player. I have used the adapter to connect to Samsung and LG Plasmas, plus a Acer Projector without problems. All thats required is VGA and Audio input sockets on TV (most have them). The Apple Adapter doesn't carry Audio, you will need an Audio cable from the IPad to the TV set. You will possibly also need a VGA extension cable as the Apple VGA Adapter is very short. Maplin, EBay, Amazon etc. carry these at reasonable prices. Hope that helps.
