    I convert my movies to MP4 format then move to Itunes and then to Ipad2. There may be some other apps that will play avi but I so far have not used them.

    Agree with helix, you have to get it in mp4 format. Depending on the format of your file and the codecs used, it may not be easy. Google for mp4 encoders.

    The app is called flex player and its free. It plays even mkv and flv and you can transfer files through itunes ipad application pane.

    Welcome!

    There are plenty of threads and even a guide (that I wrote) on how to transcode your movies to the right format for your iPad. A search should bring them up.

    The really ridiculous thing is that you have to go to all that trouble in the first place. If there's one big gripe I have with the iPad, it's Apple forcing use of mp4. Period. You should be able to put those .avi videos on the iPad and play away. My pet peeve gripe with the iPad.

    I use AVPlayer HD. Priced at $4.99, its one of the apps I use most and definitely worth the price. It plays a wide variety of file formats and I play HD mkv videos on it with no problem,. Try it out.
