Tips for AVI on iPad Mini

Not all AVI files can be moved to your iPad, as Apple’s devices only support AVI files that are compatible with the Motion-JPEG standard. If your AVI file uses a different type of encoding, such as DIVX, then you will not be able to play the AVI file on your iPad.You can use a video converter, such as Handbrake, or the iPad Video Converter, to convert your AVI file to an iPad-compatible format.
