    Unfortunately, you'll have to convert them on the desktop first, or stream them from the desktop using something like AirVideo.

    You can't read them in email attachments unfortunately.

    oplayer will probably play them without any conversions, but probably not directly from an attachment...

    You can stream them from your PC to the iPad via the ORB app

    That sucks ! This means that without a PC there is not a lot you can do with the iPAD in a standalone mode....

    ROFL your mad that Apple doesnt support a Microsoft format? They have to pay for the rights to play each file type and sorry but don't count on apple ever paying Microsoft to use their file formats.

    I am not mad that the iPAD does not support MS formats, ofcourse I understand the issue and also accept that I would need to install and run some conversion software, my point is that I cannot do so on the iPAD itself and have to do the conversion etc on a PC and then send teh conevrted file to the iPAD or store somewhere such as iDISK.
