    Yup, i use an app called "reeldirector" awesome.

    You have to hook up the ipad to your comp and drop the movies into the app, not just into movvies section.

    Well worth the 5 bucks, havent had a single avi or mpeg it couldnt play.

    Edit: My bad man, i totally meant AVPlayer HD, reeldirector is the imovie alternative, not a player sorry.

    AV Player HD

    Utilizes swipe gestures, can play avi, mkv, just about any file format out there, can delete files once viewed (no need to hook up to a computer), can wirelessly transfer files if you wish, can adjust and utilize subtitles, can project onto tv in hd format, can adjust aspect ratios (I.e. 4:3, 16:9, etc...)

    Best app to watch videos in any format, bar none!

    Another vote for av player hd. It plays a lot of files, I threw an mkv file at it that's 720p and it played it flawlessly! Divx, Xvid, Avi, MP4, Mkv I have played all with no stuttering, lag or sync issues what so ever. It's an awesome app!

    I use ivi from the App Store .... purchased the Pro version from the makers website so I could get the files off DVD's as well.

    I use Buzz Player HD but GoodPlayer, AVPlayer, OPlayer and others work just fine too.
