With the debut of the one-pound iPad Air and the second-generation iPad mini, you may wonder can the new iPad Air or mini play AVI files now. Disappointed, once again Apple has not provided overall AVI support for iPad.
Though the new iPad Air is thinner, lighter, but much powerful, its support for AVI is just as the former iPad models do: iPad Air still only plays Motion JPEG encoded AVI files and can't play AVI files encoded with DivX, Xvid, MPEG-1, MPEG-2, WMV, DV, H.263 and etc. So does the new iPad mini. Therefore various troubleshooting in playing AVI on iPad will occur just as below:
What if we want to play AVI on iPad even in the situation that iPad has not yet fully support playing all kinds of AVI movies?
In fact, it is that easy! Simply convert AVI to iPad more supported MP4, MOV, and then you will never worry about cannot transfer AVI to iPad for successfully playing various AVI on iPad of any model.
