You can transfer video to flash drives and with an OTG cable, connect to your tablet then use Nexus Media Importer.

If your tablet is rooted, StickMount from the Play Store and and external USB source connected by an OTG cable will work.

I used to use StickMount, but found issues, so I still use NMI on my rooted devices.
