    it will not play avi's natively but you can use MOVIE PLAYER app or VLC STREAMER if you wnt to stream movies from your pc.

    The ipad plays - from Apple Web Site

    Video formats supported: H.264 video up to 720p, 30 frames per second, Main Profile level 3.1 with AAC-LC audio up to 160 Kbps, 48kHz, stereo*audio in .m4v, .mp4, and .mov file formats; MPEG-4 video, up to 2.5 Mbps, 640 by 480 pixels, 30 frames per second, Simple Profile with AAC-LC*audio up to 160 Kbps per channel, 48kHz, stereo audio in .m4v, .mp4, and .mov file formats; Motion JPEG (M-JPEG) up to 35 Mbps, 1280 by 720*pixels, 30 frames per second, audio in ulaw, PCM stereo audio in .avi file format.

    But almost any format can be converted to play on the iPad.

    The default player only playes mp4
    use the vlcplayer, that one doesnt need you to connect to your pc or laptop.

    the only problem with vlc player is that that apple has removed it from its store
    geez, why does apple remove a lot of these apps. fortunately I still have them. does the new one support vga out yet?

    I use Goodplayer. So far I've been able to play avi and vob (rip from dvd without conversion) files without any problems. Just transfer files from itunes to ipad. Great for the long subway rides.

    AVPlayer HD

    Take a look in the app store. Will play any format. Supports srt and subtitles. Utilize swipe gestures for speeding up, slowing down, volume, etc... Can use Bluetooth headsets with it as well.

    I have vlc and this is better.
