Restricting iPad Video & App volume

I'm forever asking my kids to turn the volume to half when using their iPads.
Especially when watching Videos. Is there a way I can limit the volume to halfway? I know it can be done for music, but I can't see a solution for video & apps. Surely I can't be the first person with this issue?

  • IPad video app no sound.

    recently, I just realized that my iPad video app does not produce any sound after I have recorded it. can somebody help me with it? so does Skype app too. it does not produce any sound and can't be heard clearly.

    I was having same issues as many others ie sound only using headphones but no speaker output. I had tried everything listed in the forums including resetting device,headphone plug etc etc.
    Solution for my device was to enter settings /  notifications and change the notifications tab from manual to time and back again. Also I  generally changed any button mentioning sound in the notifications list from on to off and back to on.
    Once I did this the volume bars reappeared on screen controlled by the volume up down buttons. I was then back in business and the speaker was outptting audio again............................strange.............dont ask me how I arrived at this point but it worked.  I was one call away from returning to Apple under warranty.
    Hope it works for you.

  • IPad Video app not sorting correctly

    Long time reader, first time poster - but I cannot seem to find a resolution to my issue, I fail to see how this issue could go unresolved for as long as I have had it;
    The iPad video App when streaming from a home shared iTunes account does not sort TV shows as per the TV Show / Season / Episode attributes in the metadata. Is there a fix for this other than re-entering the metadata to the Artist attribute - I have a moderately sized library and this would consume my attention for far too long, not to mention its double handling!!!
    Surely the introduction of a sort function on iOS devices and Apple TV is not too much to expect.

    Actually there is a fix, that I found from another thread. Plug in yor device to the computer as it's faster. Un synch all your music from the iPad, which will remove it from the Pad. When that's done, turn the music synch back on, putting your tunes back on the device.
    The music library is corrupted and this will fix that. A regular synch will not work.

    UPDATE to this CURRENT LOCATION on iPad / iPhone / Find My iPhone issue -
    I have a iPad that kept showing my OLD adress in Orlando Fl on BOTH google maps and Apple Maps, even after I moved up north to South Carolina.  I tried everything.  I then tried my FIND MY iPHONE on my Macbook Pro and same thing.  Annoying.
    This evening I set up my BACK TO MY MAC so i could acess my Time Capsule from work.  After I set it up, and just for grins, i renewed the DHCP Lease while doing this.  After the Time Capsule rebooted, my iPad displayed the correct location immediately.  My macbook pro was still showing the OLD location in my FIND MY iPHONE.  Did a restart and BAM, its all good.
    Not sure if it was the renew or restart of the Airport Extreme Time Capsule.
    Hope this helps.
    Apple Macbook Pro 15" OSX Lion 10.8.2 and iPad iOS 6.1.2

  • Is iPad video app layout configurable?

    I find the thumbnail format of the iPad video app rather poor. Is there any way to choose a list view? Or to change the size of the thumbnails.
    It seems a bit unimaginative for an apple app!


  • IPAD Video App resolution issues

    the Ipad is reported to have a 1024 by 768 resolution but the video app does not seem to support a frame width greater than 640.
    Evidence : I use one app to convert video to MP4 - most of which I can drop into iTunes and then sync onto the iPad, however I got the occasional error when syncing saying that some of the file where not transferred as they where not supported by the device.
    after a lot of investigation i notice it was all the MP4s with a frame width greater than 640.
    Further investigation leads to the fact that the Video playback on the iPhone is limited to 640 - presumable its the same app on the iPad
    question 1 : when will the iPad Video app be upgraded to use the native resolution of the device
    question 2 : is there a third party video viewer that supports its full resolution

    MPEG-4 videos are indeed limited to 640x480 (as stated in the specs for the iPad). Try H.264 instead; that is supported up to 720p.

  • My iPad Videos App Won't Connect to Shared Library

    When I launch the iPad Videos app, then tap on "Shared" and then tap on my library, all I get is a spinning circle.
    Admittedly, I do have a large iTunes library, but it shouldn't take this long to load. (Actually, I dont know how long it takes to load, because it has never loaded. I've waited as long as 20 minutes thus far).
    The strange thing is that my 3rd-party Air Video app works every time, all the time. Why doesn't the Apple Videos app?
    Update: Waited a little longer this time, only to get this error message: "Unable to turn on Home Sharing"

    I find that closing iTunes and the Videos App on my iPad Air does not solve the problem.
    Even this solution, if it worked would drive me bonkers.  If I wanted to go to my computer I could just watch the video there.  If I wanted to watch the video on my Apple TV I would go watch it there.
    Why is it that my Apple TV always flawlessly connects to my shared iTunes library, but my iPad Air never will?  The fact that it works on Apple TV suggests the problem in not my network, my router, my firewall, etc.  It suggests there is a bug with the apps on the iPad.
    I too have resigned myself to the fact that AirVideo is the answer.  Sadly though, this doesn't solve my problem with trying to listen to my music library.
    I have the exact same experience with my iPhone 5c.  I'm a huge fan of Apple products for several years now after being a detractor.  I am simply left with the feeling that this issue, reported by many users, with many different devices, is not getting the attention it deserves.
    Frustration is setting in....

  • Why doesn't my iPad Videos App show TV Show Episode Numbers?

    Dear everybody,
    Can you please help me with this issue, my iPad Videos app doesn't show TV Show episode numbers. They appear to be ordered correctly but shouldn't there be an episode number section?
    Here's the screnshot:

    It's not designed to. It will only appear in Windows Explorer if you have photos on the iPad that were taken with it, copied to it via the camera connection kit, or saved from emails, websites - in which case it will appear as a camera. Otherwise you get content on and off the iPad via the file sharing section at the bottom of the device's apps tab when connected to your computer's iTunes, via wifi, email, dropbox etc

    I purchased 3 new tv episodes on iTunes and downloaded them on my iPad, from iCloud.  They don't appear on my iPad Videos app and I've tried downloading them several times.  Where are they?

    The question is not only how to to hide them, but also how to mark them as watched!

  • IPhone video to iPad Video App Workflow

    What's the easiest way to sync my iPhone videos into my iPads video app? Right now the videos from the phone import into iPhoto. I then have to drag the videos into iTunes, and then sync the iPad. Is there an easier way?

    Depends on the what iPhone you have. There are a few tutorials on YouTube showing how to do this with the iPhone 4 and iPad using the Camera Connection Kit.
    You can do this with short videos using the PhotoTransfer app:

  • IPad Videos App - Indicating Watched / Not-watched

    I have watched videos on my iPhone for a while, it is very convenient that it shows a circle to indicate what has been viewed, partially or completely (or not at all). The iPad videos app doesn't seem to do this which is very invonvenient as I have a series of TV shows I am watching and now have to remember where I was up to.
    Am I missing something or is this an oversight in the Videos app?

    OK, I gave up.  You just can't fight city hall.
    After messing with changing from 'Movie' to 'Home Video' I just said screw it.  I just finished doing the following for my 64 'Home Video' movies:
    - I did a Google image search on <movie name> poster
    - I clicked on the thumbnail to bring up the image
    - I did a right-click SAVE IMAGE AS
    - I then did a GET INFO on the movie through iTunes
    - I clicked on the ARTWORK tab
    - I added the image I just found as the the artwork
    - I change the MEDIA KIND back to MOVIE
    - I then recopied the movies I keep on my iPad (about 10) from the PC
    No more problems now either with viewing the local or Shared movie lists from my iPad. As I add new movies I will make sure to manually add the artwork.  What a PITA.
    Hopefully Apple will get this fixed. This movie UI painfulness (that wasn't even a problem on IOS 6.x) is something worthy of Microsoft.

  • IPad video app

    I have downloaded a show but I can't figure out how to watch it. I have seen references to a video app but I can't seem to find on. Should it be on my iPad or do I get it from the app store? If so which one because I can't seem to find one there

    try to search for video app, it has to be there by default.
    it may be just hidden in one of the folders then you go to settings -general- reset- reset home screen layout
    or it may be restricted then you go to settings general - restrictions- turn off restriction

  • How do I get my iPad Videos app to work?

    I have the iPad 2. I'm having trouble getting the Videos app that came with the iPad to work. I have several videos on there and when I click on it, it just opens to a black screen. If I swipe from left to right and type in one of the movies on the videos app, it flickers, but won't play. I saw with someone else who had this problem they were told to hit the home button twice, then click on the "minus" sign on the icons of the apps that were open. Well, the iPad 2 doesn't have that. When you hit the button twice, it pulls up all the apps you own/are open at the bottom of the screen to scroll through easily, but none of them have the minus symbol to close them. As far as I know, there is no way to "close" apps on the iPad 2. Any help? If I could delete and reinstall it, that'd be great, but it comes with the iPad so I can't do that.

    What am am I doing wrong then? Because I've done **exactly** those things and the minus sign never appears. Do I have something set up wrong in my settings. If I press and hold one of the apps, they shake and an "x" appears on most of them *except* the apps that came with the iPad (including the "Videos" app). I've also done the tapping the home screen button thing. The icons appear at the bottom of the screen like they're supposed to, and when I press and hold one of the apps, they all start to wiggle, *however* no minus signs appear. Please understand that, "x"s appear on the apps that I have installed, **nothing** appears on the apps that came automatically on the iPad, and no minuses/minus symbols appear on the apps at all. **That** is why I'm having trouble. I can't close and reopen it to see if that will fix it. Is there a setting (under "settings") that I can change so that I *can* open and close the apps (so that a minus sign does appear on the apps)?

  • Ipad Video app closes

    Currently i cannot play any movies on my ipad and i cannot figure out what is wrong.
    The Videos app on my ipad shows the movies i transferred over from Itunes by USB connection.  If i click on any movie i get to the individual movie page that shows the movie art and all the chapters.  If i click on the play button, the screen quickly scrolls up and down and does not play.  The circle icon below the play button is continuously going.
    I have tried resetting my ipad, removing all the movies and adding them back, but it does not help.  All these movies play with no problem in Itunes on my PC.
    Any help is appreciated.

    Hello Brian, 
    Welcome to Apple Support Communities.
    It sounds like you’re running into an issue playing iTunes Store content on your iPad Air, and you’ve already tried restarting the device and syncing the movies a second time. If you haven’t already, try backing up and restoring the device as shown in the article linked below.

  • IPad video app (iTune) broken - Not showing downloaded videos

    Recently, I began to have problems with videos that I purchased on iTunes, downloaded them, could watch them and then delete them so I could download more purchased videos, and then when I would go to download them again later (to watch them again), it would show in iTuned that they were already downloaded.  In iTunes...The "WATCH" button appears where the "Download" button usually appears...and when you click on it, the iTunes Video App launches, but the video isn't there to watch.
    Anyone else having this same problem?  ...and how do I fix this APPLE?  I have already done a factory restart and loaded my apps, etc...back on to my iPad from iCloud, but the problem is still there.

    Thanks Rex. I appreciate your suggestion. There are two reviews on it so far (not much substance regarding function).
