    The specs say it will play .avi, but each file format is capable of a wider range of settings than the iPad can handle. So yes, it should play .avi files, with qualifications. Here are the specs, which I don't pretend to understand.

    You may have better luck with a third party app like OPlayer, but no guarantees.

    Try playimg the video in itunes on your pc. If it works, then it should work on your ipad

    Or you could convert the file using handbrake
