    Hi all.

    On my Windows PC I have several movies in the .AVI format. I If I have read correctly iPad will not read the.AVI format. I have also read in a number of posts in this forum that a program called "Handbrake" can be used to make the .AVI format readable by iPad.

    I have searched for the "Handbrake" APP and found one, but it appears that the "Handbrake" that I found deals with monies and calculation and the like rather than video conversions.

    Would someone please verify my above comments and let me know how I can lay my hands the the [correct] version of "Handbrake"......Is that program free? ;)

    Regards

    Hi Janset,

    I use an app called Movie Player that handles just about any format you throw at it. It's in the App Store. The free version is all you need.

    Just to clarify - Handbrake is not an app that you get from the App Store, it is a program you install on your PC or Mac to do the conversion of a movie to iPad-readable format.*

    See Rends post above for the website to visit to download the program. Good luck.

    Thanks Mickey for clearing that up. I thought it was a APP <:)

    Instead of converting I bought an app for 3 bucks called AV Player HD and it plays avi's fine. All you do is hook up your ipad to your computer through itunes, click on your ipad apps tab in itunes, scroll down to the app Av player hd and you add files that way. It works great and saved me a ton of time by not having to convert. Youtube it if youd like to see it in action.

    It won't work.This app is for transferring existing video files to your iPad.You still have to use a program such as handbrake to put your DVD on the computer in the first place.
