    I've got a nice compact Canon digital camera that takes great pics and HD video. I'm able to transfer and view all the pics on my iPad, however the videos are transferred, but won't play ( they will play perfectly well when downloaded from my camera to my PC). When I updated to 4.2 a couple of days ago, one of the camera's videos plays beautifully, and the others will play, but only sound, not video. Wassup with that?

    Update-
    If I play the video, the first time it will only have audio. If I play it again, it will have video as well, although the icon still has a generic "movie" logo. Odd, but nice to be able to finally watch my transferred videos.

    Hi Bones. How did you transfer? Camera connection kit or via iTunes?

    If via iTunes, you may need to convert it. I have a link in my sig to help. If via the camera connection kit, then I am as confused as you. One of my cameras uses .AVI when I drag and drop it on my hard drive directly from the camera, but somehow magically work if I import them using the camera connection kit - and they wouldn't if they were really .AVI!!

    Oh then, yeah. I had the same weird stuff going on. It shouldn't have worked - but it did, mostly, somehow.
