Was it purchased from iTunes? If it was you can transfer it back using the transfer purchase feature of iTunes.
If this is a video that you recorded, and you didn't import into iTunes and sync it to the iPad, you will need a third party app like this.Or maybe a WiFi transfer app.You can also import videos from the camera roll with iPhoto on the Mac. Connect the iPad to your Mac and launch iPhoto. The iPad will appear under devices in the left sidebar. The camera roll will open in iPhoto and you can import the video to iPhoto and drag it to the desktop.

I forgot to say that the movie is one of my own, converted to iPad2 format and synced via iTunes from the iMac to the iPad and shows up in "Videos" on the iPad.
I've connected the iPad with iTunes but can't find anything there to help.
Is 3rd party software the only solution?

I think that is your only option now. If the video was in the camera roll you would be able to import it using iPhoto, but from the videos app that will not work. You will need something like Touch Copy.
I'm pretty sure that there is a free demo veriosn that allosws a few transfers. Give it a try.

Just looked at touch copy but it doesn't work with Snow Leopard. (My OS) Have you any experience with the iTunes app - WiFi copy? When I try to connect with the iPad from my Mac, using http://ipadname.lan:6688 as told by the app, my mac doesn't find the connection. Neither with http://192.168.1.73/6688.

I use WiFi Transfer. Is the app that you trying to use?
It works for me but I am running Mt. Lion. It does say that it works with OS X 10.6

Sorry, I meant WiFi Transfer & yes that's what I understood - that it works with 10.6. It comes up on the iPad but the Mac just can't connect. I'm assuming that the ip address shown by the app has been picked up from the iPad & should be correct.

Maybe I am picking nits here, but the address in the URL field should be....
Your address is missing the "local" and the - between the name and the word ipad. Actually, after rereading the entire post, I don't think this will work for movies in the videos app.

Thanks Demo. I've just gone into the app again to doublecheck what it gave for the IP address (that I noted above) - having had the iPad switched off - this time the Mac connected with the iPad via the IP address????
and I had typed it in correctly before. Now another problem, having downloaded the PC version, that crashes on opening.
But, I think you're rght about it not working, nothing from the video app shows up on the page. All the stuff from Photos show up, but that's it.
It looks as though I'm back to square one.
Thanks a lot for your help.

Update :- I've re-downloaded the PC App from the iTunes store instead of via a server (Later version) & this works OK.
This confirms it - nothing from the video app shows up on the page.

I'm sorry this didn't work out for you. This is another app that I have seen recommended, but once again, I have never used it. There is a free demo version available and all that I see on this website is that it works with OS X with no specific versions listed.
Not sure if this one will see movies in the videos app either.

Thanks again Demo. Well, tried that ( a bit messy - needs other software but worth the try) & it too didn't pick up anything from the video app.
It certainly seems a bit strange, having something in an iPad app that can't be accessed. (Except to run)
