    You don't say what app you're using.

    For AVI files, it is likely an issue with the video player app you are using, since it is not a format supported by the iPad itself, but for MP4 files, the stock video player should be working fine.

    Can you try a few of the sample trailer links located here:

    Free Streaming Movie Trailers 07-2012 | Tools4Movies | DVD Catalyst 4

    and see if any of those work?

    Using my own iPad3, they stream while downloading.

    I wouldn't have thought you could do both at the same time. I guess it just depends on the web site in question. That may be where something has changed on the web site side.

    Try uninstalling goodplayer temporarily.

    If you visit my link in Safari, it should open the videos directly using the build-in video player.
