I have bunch of AVI movie files I want to put them on my iPad. But I had some problems converting my avi files to mp4 format for my iPad. I know AVI is a popular video format. It comes with good video quality with relative small size. However, how can I convert .avi files then to view AVI video files on iPad? I'm confused.
