iPod does not support all types of files, so you cannot play avi files on iPod. It only supports mpeg4 video type files. You need third party software to convert your avi files to mpeg4 or mp4 formats whcih can be played on iPod. Convert the videos and add them in your itunes library and enjoy it on iPod.

You need to convert the avi files into iPod compatible video formats. There are many conversion softwares available. I used Videora iPod Converter which coverts video files to formats that are compatible with iPod. You can extract the videos directly to iPod after conversion. It supports many video formats like AVI, FLV, VOB, MPEG, DIVX, XviD, etc. With Videora iPod Converter you can convert videos for any type of iPod that plays video such as iPod touch, iPod nano and iPod classic.

iSquint is an iPod video conversion app for Mac OS X. It is easy to use. You just need to click and drag your avi files and start conversion. You can choose size, quality and advanced option.

Yes I agreed with Videora iPod converter. It is best and works well for me. It can basically convert every video file you throw at it to a iPod or iPhone compatible format. Easy to use and very fast.

Re: How to play avi on ipod

Okay, I'm stumped. I recorded some video with Camtasia, and saved them as avi's (so I assume that they truly are avi's), yet I found that I had put them on my 5th gen. Ipod Classic, and while they wouldn't show in Itunes (and I don't remember HOW I go them on it, then - 3rd party app?), they DID play on my Ipod!
So, possibly some avi's, depending on the codec, CAN play on an ipod - if you can get them on there. Itunes doesn't let you, nor one 3rd party app I tried, SharePod, which otherwise is a great app.
Any thoughts on why they did play, and how I got them on there?

One possible reason is that your video file is encoded with mpeg-4 or h.264. Then your video file can be played on your iPod. But i have no idea which tool u use.

To play avi files on iPod,
you should know that mp4 is the only video format which accept by iPod,
so you just need to convert the video format from avi to mp4,
recommend you have a trial of avi to mp4 converter

there are also another blog which i found recently.
you can scan it.
hope it can help you more or less!
