Prior to this iTunes 12 update, there was a way to navigate to the apps on your iPad and select a third party app from the App Store, then be able to 'add media' to that application. I would put home videos and other content to CineXPlayer this way.

With iTunes 12, I no longer see this option for my third party video player. Is this no longer supported? Are third party video apps out of business?

  • Launch iTunes
  • Plug in iDevice, then...

    1. select iDevice
    2. Select Apps
    3. Scroll down on the right-most scroll-bar until you see the File Sharing header
    4. In that section, select your app
  • Then you can drag & drop to the right section

I shrunk my iTunes window down as small as it would go to show all the info without taking up too much room in here

Rebooting the phone may help if connectivity is an issue.

  • Thank you for this. I think that's the problem. My iDevice is no longer showing up in that bar you highlighted (#1) Jan 17 '15 at 19:26
  • then that's a different issue entirely. Is it plugged in? Does the cable work? Is your USB hub functioning correctly?

  • Debugging right now. It's definitely receiving a charge. So functioning cable isn't the problem. Jan 17 '15 at 19:28
  • charge & data are not necessarily carried on the same core. At minimum, unplug, reboot phone & try again - or try another cable
