    I don't bother syncing, or even moving Podcasts manually from iTunes to
    my iPhone or iPad. I have some I subscribe to via the iOS Podcast App.
    They appear as available in iCloud and I just access them when I want
    to play them. Delete from iDevice when done and it is archived in
    iCloud if a repeat viewing is ever wanted.
    I don't use any of the torrent sources such as Pirate Bay. I do the
    occasional rip of a DVD using Mac The DVDRipper Pro or Handbrake.

    Then I will use iTunes, DVD Player, or VLC to view on my desktop.
    Otherwise I use iTunes or Dropbox to load the files into my iDevices. I
    find that m4v or mp4 files work best on my iOS devices.
    Handbrake can usually do a pretty good job of getting video files to a
    state that an iOS device won't choke on them.

    The video album in photos is for video you created on your device.
    the app named Videos.

    The stuff the kids want isnt readily available on DVD.
    I find dropbox much too slow so use itunes with a USB connection.

    I normally get the stuff from pirate bay using the desktop
    but with one of the kids put the pirate bay app on his
    android tablet and let him get them himself directly.

    But that has just died when pirate bay got raided.

    There are pirate bay clones that work fine on the desktop
    but don’t with the pirate bay app on the tablet.
    I find it more convenient to get anything available and use
    VLC except for the fact that VLC can go missing from the
    play store and that can be a problem with a new kid.
    Sure, but like I say, I prefer VLC myself. That way
    I use the same thing to play video on everything.
