Access Already Paid For M4b File And Play Audiobook?
Jul 31, 2011
Down loaded m4b audiobook file from Learnoutloud.com website. Can only use dropbox, fileapp or evernote to access file. Cannot play. Option at learnoutloud site was to dwnld either mp3 or mp4 (m4b). Mp3 would not work with safari, so selected mp4 option. My belief was m4b was native to iPod/iPad. How can I access already paid for m4b file and play audiobook?
I am listening to audiobooks in the iPod app. I have never had an iPod before so don't know if the problem I am having is a settings one. Every time I stop reading it & turn off the iPad when I go back to read the book starts over at the beginning! Very frustrating because it takes me ages to find where I left off. Is there a setting in the iPod app that could prevent this?
So I have had a jailbroken iPhone several times throughout the years but have never explored the iPad jailbreak. The main reason I would want to jailbreak is to allow filesystem access and open saved docs into existing apps.
Additionally I wold love to be able to use a flash drive with the camer connection kit and move files to and from the iPad. Are there cydia apps, or ways to accomplish this?
just got myself an original iPad, having some fun figuring the thing out... One question though, is there an App out there I can use to remotely access data on a share I have on a server in the office or at home? Be nice to be out and about and be able to access photos and videos I have from various holidays etc to show friends and family without having to remember to download them before leaving the house.
why a .m4v movie wont play on ipad? It shows & opens on the ipad in aceplayer and shows the duration of the film but never starts. I can move the curser along to various parts of the film and the time changes so it's recognising the time code.
I've tried changing it to .mp4 (without conversion) but that is the same. the m4v plays in itunes and mp4 in quick time on the mac so the file has downloaded ok. I've copied it across twice on the off chance it was corrupt in the transfer but still the same.It is a genuine movie downloaded from itunes with a voucher code from inside the DVD box for a free mobile version.
My companies Exchange-server only allows me to have 100 MB of data on the server. I therefore have a large PST-file with archived emails on my PC which I would like to have access to on the Ipad.Is there a way to get the pst-file on the Ipad?
Is there a way to access files (e.g. Word, Excell) that are on my desktop PC via my wifi network? The Apple saleman said no; you'll have to somehow use iTunes to transfer the file.If I have to use iTunes, how do I do that? And where do the files end up? If I boot up an app to edit one of these files, does it ask me which files to open?
I would like to get an ipad and use in place of my notebook computer when traveling.I know I can set up the email and that wouldn't be a problem.it is the files I would need.I have several word and excel files that I would need to access (that I currently have on my notebook),create and edit.Would it be possible with the iPad and would I need to download an app for that?

Is there an app that will let me transfer word files to my iPad so I can access them when NOT connected to the internet? I have Documents Unlimited but it insists that in order to retrieve documents it has to be connected to a server. I don't have a data plan or access to the internet at work, but would like to be able to write on my lunch break. I can't afford to keep buying apps and having them turn out NOT to have what I need.
I have an MP3 file on my Windows desktop that I want to play on the iPad. I connected my iPad to my desktop, opened iTunes on the desktop, and added the MP3 file to my iTunes library. It plays fine there. Then I dragged the file to "Music" underneath DEVICES > Owner's iPad. But when I go to the iPad, open up iTunes, it's nowhere to be found.
I want to view the webpage and listen to the narrative provided in an embedded mp3 file. This works fine on my Mac, but not on my Ipad. I can click on the mp3 file and listen to it, but then the webpage is gone. When I click on the weblink, the webpage ( text & graphics) comes up, but it won't play the sound with it. I' ve downloaded each separately, but I can't figure out how to run them together.
It's very strange, whenever I use a proxy that works find through Firefox or Chrome on the iPad, it loads the iPlayer and indicates nothing as far as geographical restrictions go, but when a video begins to play it says in an iPhone OS dialogue "you are not authorized to open this file."I have a feeling that while there is an HTTP proxy in effect, it is not being fully applied, and most importantly not being applied to the video plug-in for Safari.Has anyone encountered this problem?
Trying to setup an ipad2 for my mother and load some of her audio books on it. The audio books are mostly in mp3 format with some being in m4a. Books are marked as audio book format.
Problem is that when placed on the ipad and accessed by going through music -> more -> audio books, the books appear, selecting one shows all files/parts of the book, but when playing, it does not advance to next file. Particular problem in which some books are split into 3 minute chunks per file.
Taking the same files and placing them on my ipod 5.5, they play fine and auto-advance fine.
I purchased a new 2012 iPad 3. I also purchased the iMovie app. I shot 2 short 1080p videos of my kids with the iPad's standard Camera app (at least, I think they are 1080p -- they look outstanding on the iPad's screen when I play them there). I then used the iMovie app to merged the two separate clips into one video, about 60 seconds in length. I was able to send that video to FaceBook, but FaceBook limits the videos to only 720p and there is a lot of compression too which makes it almost look like SD video. So I thought I would try uploading to YouTube next. That worked, and YouTube shows the video as being an HD video, but even YouTube only shows it in 720p, not 1080p. The other problem is, the YouTube video is highly compressed too, which indicates my iPad is doing that to reduce the upload time.
So what I thought was to use DropBox to get the "original" video file on my Mac, and then use my Mac to upload it to YouTube, thereby bypassing any unecessary compression and re-encoding that the iPad seems to be using. So I used the UPLOAD feature to send that *.MOV file to my DropBox. It work perfectly. But when I then double-clicked that *.MOV file on my iMac, QuickTime player (under OS X Lion) opened but it gave me the following error:
"The movie's file format isn't recognized."
I then tried the latest version of VLC, but the MOV file still won't play! I even tried the older QuickTime7 and it tells me "This is not a movie file." I then did a GetInfo on the MOV file in FileBuddy. It tells me the File Type is MooV and Creator is mgvr. Not sure if that means anything but I want to mention it. Another interesting thing. When I first tried to upload my video to Dropbox and then tested it on my Mac, it worked. In that case, I had used the default DropBox settings which reduce the size of the exported videos. It was really tiny, but it played. So I then changed that setting to upload the "Originals." But again, when I do that, they won't play on my Mac. Again, this MOV file is not too terribly large (176MB) and not very long (60s). I edited it in iMovie for iPad. The upload to my DropBox went smoothly and without error. So can someone please tell me why I cannot play this video? Also, why wouldn't my iPad be uploading the full 1080p to YouTube? And is there no way for me to control the compression level?
I just got my iPad after already having an iPod Touch. I have a bunch of audiobooks I keep on th iPod. When I synced the iPad they all went on the iPad and now I can't get thm off. Is there someway to delete them off the iPad? The swipe delete that I do for Podcast episodes doesn't work and I tried unchecking them in iTunes and resyncing, but none of that is working.
