hi all, we need to add approx 10gig of MP4 files to 384 iPads.
we us the Apple iPad configurator to make a basic image with apps and settings etc but this never adds the video files to the build.
What we have had to do in the past id then open up iTunes and sync the ipads again to get the video files on, this is not really any good on this size of data and this many devices.
Any thoughts or help gratefully received.

Agree I feel you are out of your depth with this size of data and this many devices.
Maybe OneDrive Business this way you can upload your mp4 and install Itunes app to sync with the Cloud OneDrive
Description
IMPORTANT: You must have a SharePoint Online or qualifying Office 365 business subscription to use this app. (See requirements below).

Thanks for the answer but think syncing that many for that much data like that will take an age :(

Well actually they could just log in to their Microsoft account and play the video of choice from the list their choice through the iTunes app while the mp4 is on OneDrive?

The same idea, but I'd suggest using OwnCloud instead of OneSync, then you don't need a Microsoft account. It's available as free software too, so very low cost.

Or use a public link in Dropbox, but then you don't have control of your own data as you do with OwnCloud.

Anyway, both those options requires network access at the time of data transfer.

I'd like to ask why there is this need to put~> add approx 10gig of MP4 files to 384 iPads.
10 gigs of mp4 of video? why 10 gigs?
as you said>
we used the Apple iPad configurator to make a basic image with apps and settings etc but this never adds the video files to the build.<< well this will be a huge task regardless and I believe you are out of your depth with so much to so many.
Check the steps again and good luck ;)

We hire out IT kit and have a request for the above, we have used the configuration program for many years with great success for configuration of builds and apps but never managed to deploy video content, we can deploy photos, pdf files etc but not video.
the customer wants what the customer wants, we can do it manually through iTunes but know it is going to be a slow job hence the question.
many thanks for your help.

All these newer technology adds a little more control and less freedom because of DRM.

It might be a better solution to create this entire project onto a flash pen with an auto run?
