Make It Possible: Use iPad and iPhone to Watch AVI Videos
We are guessing that your camera takes videos in AVI format. Even if that’s not the default format of your camera, most video files, including the ones present on the internet are available in the AVI format. If your video file is available in the supported format, it is well and good. You can simply drag the file and drop it in the iTunes. And then add that file to your devices.
Now if you have a video file that is not supported by iPhone, then what can you do? If you think there is no way you can play it on your iPhone, you are wrong. There are many apps that you can use to play AVI files on your iPhone.
One of them is Handbrake, which is available for free. You can use it to convert the movie to MP4 format. Just right click on the video file in iPhoto and select Show File to see it in your Finder. Now open the video as source file using Handbrake. Use the iOS presets, and it will begin conversion. When the conversion process will be completed, your new MP4 file will be ready. Now just drop the new video file in iTunes.
And if conversion isn’t your style, then you can get an app that allows you to play AVI files on iPad and iPhone. For iPad, you can get CineXPlayer.It is available for $2.99.
If you want a universal app, you can get GoodPlayer for $2.99.
