People become frustrating when they are unable to transfer AVI movies to iPad for viewing. Luckily, I happen to know several solutions to solve the importing problem. One is Air Video. So, in this article, I will introduce how to use Air Video to play AVI movies on iPad.
Comparing AVI Video Conversion
Maybe you know that we can convert AVI to an iPad friendly format with video converter. So, what are the advantages using Air Video?
Air Video can stream videos in almost any format including AVI to iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. We don’t convert the video on our own. If the video is not in a format supported by iPad, Air Video will convert them on fly. We don't need to wait until the entire video is converted. We can start watching it almost immediately!
The bad thing is the buffering is slow.
