How to Delete Videos from the iPad Including Movies You Recorded


A student in my Master Class wanted to know how to delete videos from the iPad. Here’s how to delete or remove movies, TV shows and other videos from your iPad.

Movies and TV Shows
Tap the Videos App
Tap the Movies or TV Shows Tab
Touch and hold on the video you want to remove
Tap the Delete Button (X in the circle)

Videos You Recorded
These are in the Photos App in your Camera Roll
Tap the video you want to delete
Tap the Trash Can icon in the upper right
Confirm by tapping Delete Video

If you synced the video to your iPad using iTunes on your computer, then you need to use iTunes on the computer to delete the video. You can also leave it in your iTunes library on your computer but uncheck it, so it is not put back on the iPad when you sync it again with your computer.
