    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:

    More Avi help please
    I have a shiny ipad3, downloaded AVPlayer and transferred my avi movies but they won't play. They are from my Nikon Coolpix P6000. Any ideas please?

    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.

    not if using a third party payer like AVPlayer.

    Back to the question about the Nikkon, in all the literature, it does not go any deeper other than saying AVI, so without having an actual file to inspect it is hard to say what the internal codec is.

    Katsura, I take it you used the file as is, with any editing or conversions when bringing it through your PC? You don't specifically say how you transferred it?

    Is it free of charge to download the AVPlayer HD?

    Does avplayer hd support subtitles or subtitles built into mkv files such as anime shows?
