This is a discussion on can I play .mp4 files on ipad 2? within the iPad Help forums, part of the Apple iPad Discussions category; thanks nath...
i'll probably be blasted and proven wrong but as far as i know, your videos have to be in mp4 format to play on the iPad (1 & 2)....
Or MOV or anything encoded for Apple devices.
Download AVPlayer HD and you don't even need to convert your files and it plays allot of formats.
thank you so much...but where can I get avplayer hd?
Wow! What an awesome program! I've never heard of it but I'll definitely buy it. Why? Cuz it supports .h264, .mkv, subtitles, etc!
For this who dont know, .mkv files are pretty awesome: great quality and small file size.
By the way, you can easily buy the program from the iTunes store for $2.99.
Also, it's easy to find reviews on the web; here's one:
