    Well, the reason why your iPad (or iPad 2) is not able to play AVI files is because these files use Divx/Xvid as a codec, and that is not supported by iPad. You need an external application for the same. What you can do is , launch AppStore, search for app called as AirVideo. Download/install it on your iPad and you are done. Launch it, browse AVI files and enjoy the movies/music on your iPad. :P

    Thats great info friend. Thanks for sharing it. What i need to do to play AVI on my iPad (not iPad 2) is, i download Daniusoft Video Converter for my PC. I convert Avi files to my iPad compatible format with the help of the same and play easily on my iPad. This software also allows us to rotate, crop, add video effects to our original file if you want. Though it is paid, but its worth.
