    Hi,

    Can you explain how to transfer files by dragging them in Windows? I can only do it using wifi and webserver. If I try in iTunes, it still gives an error.

    you should get it before Apple zaps it for being so good

    CineXplayer I find is not as good as Oplayer. Half my avi's never work on it. Apple also will not yank it off, why would they, Oplayer and YxPlayer have been on the App store for a while now...with better functionality.

    Jailbreak your iPad, load iFile onto it from Cydia, and either wifi your data over or even better get the camera connection kit and copy avi's to a memory card and copy paste them into the proper application folder.

    No fuss and soooooo much less a hassle than any other way of watching/using media.

    Oplayer, iFile and camera connection kit, best combo ever!

    First three .avi files I tried on CineXplayer didn't work. Got rid, gone back to OPlayer. One that plays everything i've tried so far.

    Watching video on the IPad

    Hi Everyone

    This is my first post

    I came across this article on this subject.
    I haven't tried it as yet, your Ipad doesn't need to be jailbroken.
    Unfortunately I can't post the link as it's only my first post.

    Go to wired.com _ gadgetlab

    The article is titled
    How To: Watch Any Video on iPad, No Conversion Required.

    Hope the above helps

    Here's acute & paste from the article it uses a free program called Avidemux.

    Confused? Here’s an example. I open up a video file in Avidemux. Let’s use The Wire, season two, episode one, a 367.4 MB AVI file. It offers to “Rebuild Frames†for me, so I click yes. This takes less around ten seconds. In the drop-downs on the left, I pick the audio (AAC) and video (MP4) formats, leaving everything else alone. Then I hit save (Command-S on the Mac) and give the file a name along with the extension MP4. This needs to be done manually – the software doesn’t name files automatically.

    I click “Save†and this box pops up. Yes, that counter is accurate. Two minutes later I have a file that I can drop into iTunes and watch on my iPad. The video quality is unchanged from the original.
