I am new to the whole iPad, iTunes. iPhone World.  I am hoping someone can help me with a problem.  My daughter has the iPad 2 (wifi version) and an iPhone 5.  She is out of town at a sleep away camp.  She gave me access to her iTunes account and the iPad is set up on Home Sharing.

I made two home-made movies for her birthday.  I copied them into her iTunes movie library.  She has connected her iPad to a wifi network and logged into iTunes.  She does not see any option for her to synch with the account and download the movies.  Is this not possible?

I come from the windows world.  I was going to send her the movies on a thumb drive, but I don't think the iPad accepts thumb drives.

Can anyone suggest an easy way for me to get her these movies without her being able to plug her iPad into her computer with iTunes.

By the way, one of the movies is about 1 GB in size, in case that affects your answer.  They are both saved in .MOV format,  but can be changed if that would help.



Can I use iCloud to accomplish this?
