How To Put AVI Movies Onto The new iPad or iPad 2?
Does The new iPad, iPad2 play AVI movie format?
This question always confuses some new iPad users. According to Apple's iPad tech specs, The new iPad or iPad 2 are only compatible with a specified AVI video: Motion JPEG (M-JPEG) up to 35 Mbps, 1280 by 720 pixels, 30 frames per second, audio in ulaw, PCM stereo audio in .avi file format. For other type of AVI which is encoded or decoded by XviD/DivX codec, the two iPad models doesn’t support them. You need to convert AVI to iPad-friendly video like MPEG-4, H.264 video, or install a special media player that can play AVI video onto your iPad 3rd generation or iPad2 if you want to play AVI on The new iPad or iPad 2.
Solution: Converting AVI movies to MPEG-4 or H.264 videos for The new iPad/iPad2
If you haven’t found a suitable AVI player App for iPad, I advise you to convert AVI to iPad-friendly formats like "MP4, MOV or M4V"(encoded by MPEG-4/H.264) with an iPad video conversion software. Here I highly recommend you a great program, iSkysoft Video Converter ultimate, which was specially designed to convert video formats, like AVI to MP4 on Windows, with superb fast conversion speed.
