I must've totally missed something here, but how to I get video over to my touchpad from my computer. I transferred four video over, amd they are nowhere to be found. Is there a specific program I need?
Those both probably won't work at this point in time.
Out of the box it should support MP4 and h.264.
Interestingly enough I've converted several files to both of those types using HandBrake and none of them have shown up in the photo/video app after I copied them over via USB. I'm still messing around with it but so far, no luck.
EDIT: The video files ARE showing up in the music player and I can hear the audio track when I hit play, but mo video.
I personally use handbreak to encode videos. I have to say touchpads video app is rather crappy. Besides the fact that it is mixed in with the photo app, videos do not have titles underneath them. Oh and there are not even preview thumbnails of videos available. Music app is great, video app is not so great. Hope there is a fix for this soon enough.

Ok, I must be doing something wrong. Well that and I think that Photos and Videos app isn't all that.
I've connected my TP to my laptop and I have manually dragged and dropped a few videos (used Handbrake to convert them) to my TP. Tried putting the videos in several different folders but all to no avail, they never show up in the Photos & Videos app. On top of that, I have several Albums that I can't see to delete.
Not great, not great.
How are other people transferring their videos over to their TPs?
The video portion of the Photo's app needs some work - hopefully this will be one of the first things updated with the fist OTA. I've had no issues playing videos at all... but the issue is that they display with no file names right now (hence the need for the OTA).
You can place them anywhere in your USB, but I created a main folder called "movies". In that folder I create a folder with the movie name. I have several episodes of the show Firefly on my device, so I created a folder called "Firefly" which shows up in my folder list. Until they fix the videos not showing filenames, creating a folder with the name of the movie and placing the file in that is the best option I have worked out.
I'm having the same issue as the OP - verified the video is h264, tried .mov, .m4v, and .mp4 extensions under various folders including DCIM\Palm100, DCIM, and DCIM\Video with Luna restarts and full reboots - cannot get it to acknowledge the file.
At one point the music app recognized it, but wouldn't play any audio from it.
