    Is it true that we cannot play .avi files on an ipad3 ? There is absolutely no software app or anything that can play these files ?

    If you look in the search box at the top of the image you will see that I searched for "avi".

    All the top ones came up in that search, OPlayer, AVPlayer, Goodplayer, etc.

    I just googled it, according to the spec sheet I found the P1000 doesn't support avi's natively either?

    Not at all, I'm just saying that it doesn't sound like it should be an avi.......does it play on any computer/device that you have?

    There is normally a simple solution to everything......unfortunately an early start tomorrow means I'll have to leave this for someone else but before I go.....

    The CCK doesn't have enough power to run many USB sticks (I use a CloudFTP which runs all USB right up to the biggest Ext HD's). An SD card is your best bet. Finally, if you use the search on our website and type in something like avi+player you should find the answer to your player issues as its a topic that has been discussed many times before (although I seem to keep hearing OPlayer App coming up over and over again).......good luck!

    As far as I know, iPad 3 built-in QuickTime Player can transcode and play 720p AVI files. We can't watch 1080p AVI native format with new iPad. But from googling, I found an easy way to make 1080p AVI playable for iPad 3.
