According to the format requirement of iPad, only this kind of AVI is supported: Motion JPEG (M-JPEG) up to 35 Mbps, 1280 by 720 pixels, 30 frames per second in .avi file format. That's to say, if you receive some AVI attachments in your iPad mail message, make sure the AVI videos are compatible with iPad. If not, you have to open the AVI files on your computer with a proper media player (play AVI on QuickTime) or convert the AVI attachments to iPad compatible video files. The following is all about how to convert your email attachments in AVI to iPad compatible files.
