My son has an iPad2 supplied by his employer which he uses in his job. He travels a lot and would like to watch movies on the plane and in his hotel but not via iTunes. His employer has said that accessing iTunes can affect the software that has been loaded on the iPad. Can you transfer .avi files to an iPad2 from a PC and then watch them with a program such as VLC? Do you need to run them thru some sort of converter? He doesn't want to have to drag them into iTunes. I've looked around the forum but can't find an answer as yet.
