How to transfer videos to Hudl tablet?
The easiest way is to connect the hudl to a PC with a USB cable. Your PC can then mount the hudl as a media device. Once that’s done all you have to do then is drag and drop any video files from your PC to the hudl.
You might need to adjust the Settings > Storage > ... Menu > USB computer connection setting to Media Device (MTP) to get this to work. The alternative approach is to copy the files on to a microSD card and then insert this into the hudl.
