    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?

    I believe it is a few dollars on the App Store.

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

    I can confirm avplayer hd does play subtitles and can do 720p smoothly. 1080p and it'll lag enough to not be enjoyable. However you cannot select different audio languages so if it's english dub as primary, you're screwed. I think.

    I use FileBrowser to access my video files on an SMB share drive. MP4 files play just fine on my ipad(new). To play the AVI files I tried using Movieplayer. A system message states that avi files larger than 450MB cannot be streamed to another app by ipad. To test this I tried with an AVI file less than 450MB and it played fine in Movieplayer. How do I get around this 450MB problem?

    The problem seems to be the ios. the alert appears when I ask FileBrowser to open any format other than MP4 files in another app. Is there a way to get IOS to stream files greater tha 450MB to other apps?

    Are you using the Open In... function or the Stream to Another App option? The latter worked fine for me on a test MKV file. The difference is the Open In... copies the file from the location to FileBrowser, then passes it to the video app for playback. The Stream to Another App purely streams the video, so no copy ends up on your iPad.

    Or.. you can convert your movies to mp4 via Handbrake(free software for osx and windows). I can covert a 720p, and 4.5 Gb movie..in about 8 mins and resized it to 1 GB. You should try it.

    The other apps I use are peregrine and movieplayer and both do not seem to support streaming.

    Disregard this statement, as most third party apps play xvid and divx plus plenty of other common formats like mkv without any issues. Sure, you can convert all your files to mp4 iPad compatible, but that can be a lot of work if you have a lot of files to convert. I believe people should do what is best for them, and be aware of all the options.
