    Tom will know more than I since he has an iPad and I don't

    but I think the problem is that .avi is not a format exactly, it's a container for video and that video can be encoded in different ways. Some of which the iphone/ipad wont be able to understand/play. I think the iphones and I guess ipad play .mp4 .m4v etc. all mpeg4 formats

    This thing gets a good write up for the iphone for converting videos but there are plenty more around

    Yes, I have an iPad.

    But no, I won't know more.

    Haven't had a play with many videos other than what I've got currently for podcasts, movies, etc. Give me a link to some web videos that you want me to try and we'll give it a shot and see what happens!

    Tom (... I'll try anything six or eight times!)

    Chris,

    Give me a link to some of these videos and I'll see if they'll play. I checked a couple of random .mpeg's today and they seemed to work fine. The .avi's... all depends.

    Tom (... still testing!)

    Tom , still looking for you not ignoring you , the videos section on my astro forum is only open to members so you need a login for that - looking elsewhere - they do have them from time to time on spaceweather.com, they had a great one of the ISS and the shuttle passing overhead but it wouldn't work on the iPhone butI cannopt for the life of me remember the date :mad:

    I also susbscribe to an embedded media player to listen to live Football commentary and whilst this works on the iMac and Macbook pro it wont work on the iPhone :mad: - that one is Saints TV at Southampton FC | Saints FC Scores, News, Transfers, Fixtures - not sure if there is some sort of preview avaliable for that to check as I'm at work now

    This may not be the best place for it, but if your local radio station (ie in Birmingham we have BRMB, BBC WM and Capital Gold) cover football matches, consider TuneIn radio at 1.19 on the iphone. You can pick up thousands of stations, and browse the web at the same time!

    I've just read this whole thread. I want an iPad. I HATE being broke!!

    I'll see if it works but Southampton local radio cuts out on the web for the matches and you just get easy listening for 90 minutes thats why you haveto use the dedicated club player

    ( sorry off topic)
