    I use AZUL for watching Avis. It also plays .flv, (some) mp4s, and (most) mkvs, and probably other formats that I do not use. Works for me.

    Yeah it is possible. I am using OPlayer HD. It is pretty good. But you can also use CinXPlayer, AVPlayer, Goodplayer etc.

    first try converting your .avi files to Apple format. you can do this with iPad Video Converter(ipad-converters.org) (file>export) . then you can move all your files to itunes for new ipad 3 or iphone. For iTunes or QT, you should select an iTunes-friendly output format, such as MOV, MP4 or M4V

    Not sure why you would spend hours converting files to another format when all the above play avi directly. AVPlayer HD +1

    Agreed, And, a few weeks ago I went to all the bother of converting to MP4 format from .avi.... and the file size ended up larger? AVPlayerHD is the only way to go.

    I would like recommend AVPlayerHD, plays all video files on it, plus the built in wifi transfer is great to have if you are traveling and don't have access to your iTunes PC.
    Well, actually, you could get and watch movies, videos on iPad for free online, and maybe these howto wiki can do help for you:

    AVI is just a container, there are multiple differing codecs that can be used within an AVI file. I would guess the AVI on a camera may be a more uncompressed version, not the more common divx or xvid codecs commonly used today. My recommendation would be to convert these files for playing on the iPad.
