Do you have an Apple TV? You should be able to stream some of the content stored on your iPad to this TV. Open the content on your iPad while you are next to your Apple TV and wait for the Airplay icon to appear. If you tap it, your content will be sent to your TV.

You can then choose which folders will be included in your search, which is very useful if you only use this search feature to find media content.
