Transfer Files To VLC Player While Being Tethered To My PC Instead Wifi?

I just Jailbroke my IPad so I could finally stop messing around with encoding movies.

I DLed the great VLC Player and noticed that I need to use SSH Open and a SFTP to transfer files over. Now that is not a problem, except the transfer is slow.

So I am wondering, is there any way to transfer file while being tethered to my PC?

Can WiFi only iPad be tethered to to iPhone for 3G data transmission. I already have an iPhone with data plan and don't want or need a second data plan. Can I connect the WiFi only iPad to iPhone with USB (iPhone) cable for 3G transmission.

Simple Transfer The Files - WiFi Acces At Work
I have had quite a few iPods over the years and have touch. The iPad is a great platform with critical deal breaker issues. I really feel flash is a major blow to rich complete surfing. Being a apple and pc a alway bashing each other, I do not care as long as they can provide the consumer a great product. Apple just about got there of course at an inflated cost. But worth it if iPad can perform.Let's assume flash is a minor compaired to the inability to do file transfers. I do not have WiFi acces at work to allow transferring of PDF, work docs and spread sheets. Can email to my self but no way to get it into my iPad. I have yet found an app to allow me to tether the USB cable to a standard PC and simple transfer the files.

Transfer Files To Ipad 2 And Store Them In Typical Directories So That These Common Files Can Be Launched With Various Apps
I'm wondering if there's some way I can transfer files to my ipad2 and store them in typical directories so that these common files can be launched with various apps. I've seen a million "file manager" apps that allow klugey transfers from a PC by setting up a network drive, starting the file manager app, then dragging and dropping files into the ipad, but this solution has a number of flaws for my purposes (something similar can be done in itunes, but it's far more limited):

1. I have to initiate the whole thing from my PC. This wouldn't be so bad if I didn't have to have the app actively running on the ipad too, which requires me to access both devices.

2. It still doesn't let me load the transferred files with any other apps.

3. They all have extremely limiting options as far as compatibility with file types.

What this leads to is a million file managers, each with an embedded web browser, pdf viewer, image viewer, and video player. So if I find that I like the PDF viewer of Goodreader (I do - it's excellent) but the picture viewer of readdledocs, then I have to have two distinct (and somewhat complicated) processes for transferring the different types of files over.

I'm guessing that what I'm looking for just doesn't exist, but it'd be nice to be able to actually have a universal file manager with directories. Then I could open any of my media apps and just load up any one of the compatible files.

Failing that, at the very least, I'd like a way to actually reach out to my PC and grab files to save in my various apps (like Goodreader). For instance, if I want to transfer a PDF file from my PC that has the files all shared on my network drive, and I don't want to leave my bed where I'm reading on my ipad. Possible? From what I can tell Goodreader and ReaddleDocs won't connect to network drives, and I have no FTP server or other similarly fancy file sharing technique.

Another scenario (same problem) I'm trying to address is if I'm at a friend or coworker's house and they have some files I'd like to get onto my Ipad for use/viewing (and they're too large to email). I also don't want to have to guide them through a 10 min process of setting up a network drive on their computer and transferring that way. I'd love to be able to just plug in and have them drag and drop the files or even to just grab them from a network shared directory.

Note: I'm not averse to jailbreaking if this is what it would take (when one is available for ipad2)

Video Player Not Displaying Files?
I recently updated my iPad2 to iOS5. Now the video files that I used to watch are showing as being on my iPad (via ITunes and also on the device in Settings/General/About). However, when I select the Video icon it shows the black screen stating that there are no videos on the iPad.

I have tried the restore but its just the same.

Transfer VLC Media Player From IPhone 4 To IPad 2?
I have an iPhone 4, I had downloaded VLC media player from the App Store before Apple removed it a few months back. I use VLC media player all the time on my iPhone, works great! I should get my iPad 2 in the mail no later than tomorrow. I was wondering if anyone knows a way to transfer this app to my new iPad 2? I obviously haven't tried to do this after of yet since I don't have the new iPad in hand. Curious as to if anyone else has done this with VLC media player, or any other app that Apple removed from the app store? It is signed by Apple, so might I be able to manually add it to the iPad? I know with my iPhone which is jailbroken, I can find the .ipa file within the iTunes directory, double click it, and it shows as available to sync to the device.

I do not, I repeat, do not plan on jailbreaking the iPad 2 as of yet. Mainly because it isn't available at this point I don't believe for iOS 4.3, but despite that, I would like to use it as is for a bit regardless.

WiFi Working With Abc Player But Not On Other Video Applivations
I have read many of these posts, and it seems as if it is either an all or nothing issue with the wifi. I can watch episodes on abc player fine, some delay at times, but I can understand why, but netflix has never worked, youtube only shows about 30 to 45 sec of video. Any suggestions to why this may be occurring? My network is closed, and is a wep password. I understand some have had issues with these settings, but why then can I watch some video and not others?

Cannot Transfer Files With ITunes
I have Omnigraffle, Keynote, Sheet Music, and SketchBook Pro. All four apps can transfer files into and out of the iPad. I have images that were created on the iPad, or imported from external tools (I have a couple of Keynote files that I transfered from my laptop). I transfered music PDF's into Sheet Music and used it on my music stand at rehearsal the other night, but tonight the transfer code doesn't work - my files don't even show up as available, although the iPad apps have no trouble seeing them - only iTunes is blind.

Not sure what to do. Checked for updates and installed 9.1.1, but the symptom was not resolved. Guess I'll have to mail my files or find some other transfer method until this gets resolved. Would be even better if we could sync over wifi or bluetooth instead, but I guess that's going to be cut & paste for this model.

Anyway, I am thinking of getting an iPad IF it can transfer files from other electronics because it's more portable than my MacBook (not that it's heavy). Do any of you guys know if i can transfer pictures/movies from my DSLR or camcorder to iPad directly?
