Wanna transfer and play (Xvid) AVI videos on iPad Mini or the new iPad? Follow this tutorial to convert AVI to iPad Mini/New iPad supported video formats first.
Both the 7.9-inch iPad Mini's 1024x768-pixel screen and the 9.7-inch new iPad's 2048x1536-pixel screen are great for watching movies. However, the iPad models only support H.264, MPEG-4 video in .m4v, .mp4, and .mov file formats. Thus, you may have a hard time playing movies formatted in xvid, .avi on iPad Mini or new iPad even with some help from a 3rd-party video player. In order to get all AVI files work normally on iPad Mini, you may have to do some work in advance. I mean you'll need to encode/re-encode AVI videos to iPad Mini supported H.264 or MPEG-4 encoded MP4, M4V, MOV first and then transfer them to your Apple tablet via iTunes.
To get the work done, a third-party video converter tool is needed. Here Pavtube Video Converter is a highly recommended one.The program can be used as an all-in-one video conversion app for iPhone Mini, the new iPad, iPad 4, iPad 2 and the original iPad.

How to Convert and Play AVI files on iPad Mini/New iPad
Step 1: Add Xvid/AVI movies to the software. Launch the Video Converter for iPad and click "Add Video" icon to load the Xvid/AVI files to the program. Of course, you can also simply drag and drop media files including MKV, WMV, VOB, TiVo, MTS, MPG to the source pane to add. Batch conversion is supported so that you can add multiple files.
Step 2: Choose the output format. Click "Format" bar, you can easily find the optimized videos for iPad Mini and the new iPad. For iPad Mini, just choose "iPad Mini HD Video(*.mp4)". For the new iPad, "iPad 3 (New iPad) HD Video(*.mp4)" is recommended.
If you like, you can click "Settings" to change the video encoder, resolution, frame rate, etc. as you wish. Remember the file size and video quality is based more on bitrate than resolution which means bitrate higher results in big file size, and lower visible quality loss. According to my experience, for watching videos on the iPad Mini, 720p with 2000~2500kbps is just all right. For the new iPad, 720p with 2500~3000kbps is just OK.
Step 3: Start the conversion. After above settings, you can hit the "Convert" button to begin the Xvid/AVI to iPad Mini/New iPad MP4 conversion.
Once the process completes, locate the files and transfer and copy the converted MP4 videos to your iPad Mini, here's the way to go:
1. Launch the iTunes and connect iPad Mini to PC.
2. Choose "File – > Add File to Library…"
3. Drag the .mp4 file you want to the iPad Mini icon.
As you see, now you can effortlessly watch Xvid/AVI video files on iPad Mini and enjoy the movies!
