    Hi all,

    I would like to watch movies on my pad but I've only got them in AVI form? How do I convert them to MPEG?

    Baring in mind I'm not good at technology "talk" lol!

    Do you have a Mac? I'm not sure if this can be done on Windows. But you could buy QuickTime 7 and open the avi movie and export to mov or m4v. Do a google search for Handbreak. I've never used it but heard that its a good program for converting movies.

    If you google the subject you will get a list of programs that will do that. I used PCHand iPad Mate to convert a bunch of wmv files over to mpeg.

    I convert AVIs to mp4 for my iPad all the time.

    Here's a guide I wrote about how I do it using Format Factory. Really easy to do.
