Q: My question is I'm trying to import AVI movies to iPad. Every time I try to convert a movie in Quicktime Pro it will never import in to iTunes. I don't know what I am doing wrong, I am following the manual and nothing is working. I am going on vacation in a few days and I need these movies for my son.
A: Although acceptable widely, AVI video cannot be played on many tablets, such as Apple iPad 3/4 and iPad Air directly without WiFi. Actually AVI is a container format for various codecs that will run on a windows computer. QuickTime is not setup to handle them, maybe some? If the file can't play with QuickTime from the start, then it is unlikely you'll be able to do anything with it.
