Videos for in-flight entertainment
I have to travel on a long flght(for 1 day) and I was wondering if there is any app that will let me download movies or documentaries for the iphone that I can watch during flight. I have a couple of books that are in pdf format. Anyway I can import them into the iphone?

Yup...handbrake will take any movies you have on your mac/PC and will compress/convert them into usable files for your iPhone. Other than that, you can download VLC for your iPhone and it has a way to load videos directly to it, but honestly, you'll waste alot of space with uncompressed .avi's and .mkv's vs. using handbrake and making mp4's.

Besides, regular, high bitrate movies (encoded for watching on TV) will drain the battery much faster than lower-res, lower-kpbs ones.
Now, if you find any "FREE" movies online, you can be sure the site isn't legit. Just go to iTunes and buy them movies. Easiest.
I will buy the movies from iTunes. When I come back from India, I won't have the main computer that I sync my iphone with at my place. Then how do I rent movies, since my iphone can only sync with the computer I have here without wiping out all my content on the iphone.

Hmm, I think the best way is you rent the movies and sync them to your iPhone before ur flight, or get the videos or movies by downloading them to your computer and get to ur iPhone.
As said, you can download the videos from YouTube by tools like iFunia Free YouTube downloader or somewhere, also can convert videos you own on dvd using Handbrake.
