    Is it possoble to transfer avi's and play them on the Ipad? I transferred one (from windows) using diskaid but it wouldn't play via fileapp pro. I can convert the files into mp4 but it takes quite a while.

    Basically I'm hoping for a type of drag and drop scenario.

    The easiest way is to stream it from your Mac/pc using a iPad app called air video this can play any file format even mkv you can also have the app live encode this to ur iPad format so iTunes won't moan :) hope that helps

    My iPad isn't jb anymore, but I believe they sell a port of vlc in the jb app store. That should allow you to play .avi files.

    yxplayer was also just released in the offical app store and is supposed to support divx/xvid, but I've heard the current video playback is hit or miss and that it usually stutters. I would wait for further development before purchasing yxplayer.

    Yxplayer in the apple app store, plays avi's among other formats and you can transfer through iTunes, in cydia it's called yxflash but you can't transfer using iTunes with the cydia version.

    Zodtt is releasing vlc4ipad soon hopefully should be good!

    Search air video on the app store will solve your problem

    Fair play that is some app. The only problem is that my laptop would have to be on if I wanted to use it. I go away most weekends so was hoping to transfer the files to the ipad and watch them while I'm away. Well worth £1.79 though
