What type of video files can I watch on my iPad?

I usually only have .avi files; is there an app that will allow me to play them?

  • I rephrased your question, also, if you want to ask a question about Cydia, please ask another separate question (after searching if it wasn't already asked) Mar 3, 2011 at 10:04

You could also try AirVideo, which will convert and stream xvid (and other formats) from a local PC.

You can connect to it via local network or remotely as well.

You can use OPlayer HD to watch your video on your iPad. There's also a free ad-supported version available

I usually use Handbrake to convert everything to .mp4 or .m4v (iTunes-friendly extension) before importing it to iTunes and syncing it to an iDevice. Just open it up and give it a source file, pick the proper preset, and press Go.

Another idea is converting your videos using Macroplant's Adapter. Quite simple to do.

Use VLC for the iPad (link is directly to the apple store for VLC)
