    I recently purchased and iPad2 and one of the things I want to use it for was viewing pictures and videos from my trail cameras. So I bought the sd card addaptor to go with it.

    It displays the pictures great but won't play the videos. The videos are in AVI and I am looking to see if there is any way I can go about using my iPad to view them.

    This is my first Mac purchase so I am in a learning process so any help would be great.

    The AVI files will need to be converted to MP4 using the specs the iPad requires.

    So I'm guessing this can't be done with an app.

    Don't think any app can do that. Transcoding videos requires some power to do.

    I use Format Factory and another program to do all the transcoding I do.

    Check out my guide here.

    MovieConverter

    Hi Guys, This is my first post so please forgive me if something goes wrong! There is a free app called MovieConverter that claims to do what you want, but I haven't tried it yet so i don't know if it works. As you said video conversion takes a lot of power so it may be very slow. Also, if you have upgraded to iOS5 and iMovie 1.2.2, which only runs on iOS5, then you may not need to convert the files as Apple says the new version recognizes some video formats other than those generated on iPhones, etc.. Hope this helps. John

    AVPlayerHD will play .AVI files, as well as quite a few more with no conversion needed to play flawlessly on your iPad.
