Will the iPad play/support AVI video files?

Yes, if the AVI file is compatible with the Motion JPEG (M-JPEG) standard. Apple users may find this surprising since the company's previous mobile devices did not support AVI files.

This is the first time Apple has provided support for video playback beyond MPEG-4 and QuickTime formats on iPhone OS. PCM stereo audio is also supported in AVI files on the iPad.
