What is AVI?
AVI, short for Audio Video Interleave, is a multimedia container format introduced by Microsoft in November 1992. AVI files can contain both audio and video data in a file container that allows synchronous audio-with-video playback.
Does iPad Really Plays/Supports AVI Videos
According to Apple's iPad tech specs, the iPad does indeed support a type of .AVI videos:
Motion JPEG (M-JPEG, a type of .AVI compression) up to 35 Mbps, 1280 by 720 pixels, 30 frames per second, audio in ulaw, PCM stereo audio in .avi file format
AVI is generally ubiquitous for standard definition video content on the internet, however, there's no indication Apple is supporting the specific XviD codec (encoding/decoding) used by those files. That's to say, owners of some types of video cameras would be enabled to watch their footage via the camera card reader accessory, but to watch downloaded movies on their iPad could not be that directly.
