Like above you can copy movies into vlc. Open itunes and select your ipad. Now click on the apps tab. Scroll to the bottom and any apps that allow file sharing will be down there. Now select vlc and just drag your movies right in. Yes, it would be easier if it came up as a drive on your pc or mac but this is almost as easy. Now I can play all of my avi movies. Also I got the zoom also and have a droid x as my phone. I am returning the xoom today because the screen is just not at the same level. I think if they put android on a tablet the size shape and quality of the ipad I will jump ship forever.
