The app will only stream in whatever native format your Mobile device supports (or in the case of Android) whatever Media App supports.
If you want to stream an AVI, it would have to be transcoded on the fly to the App. That is not possible at this time. You will need to properly transcode it to the format the iPad supports. I use the Xilisoft software to do my format conversions. Other free stuff is out there - like Handbrake.

What needs to occur for most files is simple, WD needs to enable the "Open-in" feature. I have numerous apps that will handle the files on my device...do it everyday. The WD 2 go just shows the question mark. This makes this app incomplete. For example, my workaround right now is to use the FTP setup and use "Open-in" from Goodreader. Works like a charm, but I dont like having to clean up after the workaround. The WD 2 go would simplify this greatly by adding the feature.

Converting movie files to ipad format is a tedious task. Do you plan to add support for other file types on WD 2go? It would be nice if WD 2go can act as an all one media player in which I can basically play any movie format on my ipad. It would be much easier than having to rely on other apps or file conversions.
