    Can I store and play .avi movies without the long 3 hour conversions to mpeg or mp4?

    I have looked at AirVideo but my internet connection is not very fast and I would prefer to save them on the Ipad for holidays etc.

    Thanks

    Yes. VLC Player, CineXPlayer and others can do this. My personal favourite is OPlayer HD. There is a free lite version for you try it out on the app store.

    CinXPlayer is also good, but VLC seems to play everything you can throw at it... without the audio problems I've encountered with certain files using CinXPlayer (it just wont play audio on certain file types)... and its quick as lightning (especially compared to conversion)...

    In order to install VLC, you will have to jailbreak your iPad and then download it from the Cydia store.

    I had a converter that actually didn't take that long to do it's magic.
    I will post the details here once I get home and find the program

    Buzz Player HD hands down $3.99...look no further. I also use Airvideo....but what I like about this is you can download to your ipad, iphone, etc...

    If you share your folder on your computer, there is a button to download over wifi with SMTB file sharing. On my wifi you can get a 700mb AVI in about 10 minutes. I particular love this because then I can easily bring a few movies for the plane. It will also stream to Airplay, but I use AirVideo for that. And if you haven't yet get an AppleTV. It is worth every penny to stream from your mac.

    avi movies on Ipad2

    Thanks for all the advice, I have just tried CinexPlayer and it seems to work great on .avi movies.

    I will continue to test any other suggestions.

    Thanks

    You could add good player and Oplayer. They play almost everything. I have a whole arsenal of media player apps so now matter what format thrown at me, I'll be able to play it. I have CineXplayer, VLC player, Goodplayer, and Oplayer. The Big 4 ;-)

    The App store viable VLC player was pulled from the App store due to contentions arising from the open license. :( . But I have my copy and it's burned to
    CD and stashed in my safty deposit box :p.

    If it is not late, You can't watch them in .avi format on the iPad 2 - they need to be converted first to .mpg or .mov format. Try the great free app called aisee (ipad-converters.org) or another of your choice to convert your files. Then just sync them over via iTunes or via a good cloud sync app like Dropbox.

    cinexplayer works well for me, there are a few format types it doesn't play but it's generally pretty good.

    I don't use OPlayer anymore but if I recall correctly, you need to use the USB sharing feature in iTunes. Connect your iPad to iTunes and once it shows up in the list on the left, click on it and then click on the apps tab at the top of the main screen. Scroll down this page until you see a list of installed apps on your iPad that are available for sharing. Click on OPlayer. Now open the folder on your computer that has the AVI or MKV files and drag the ones you want into this sharing pane in iTunes. They will copy over and once complete will be available in the OPlayer library on your iPad. You don't need to sync again as they are already copied over.
