Some video files won't stream to ipad or PS3

Hi! I’m on the latest firmware and I believe I have my device setup correctly.

I can stream some video files from mycloud to ipad and PS3 but other files just show up with a question mark? Do I need to convert all these ? files for proper streaming?

I have only tried streaming through the mycloud ap.

If they’re not fully iDevice compliant, the app won’t stream them.

OK so do I need to convert the files or should I try opening them in a different ap? MP4 files will open but AVI will not. Thanks for your time!

Am I the only one with this problem? Can anyone please explain it to me a little deeper? I am trying to stream content stored in various formats to my ipad and my ps3 but only some file types will work. Do I need to reformat the non-playable files? Do I need to find a different ap to stream with?
