Q1: "I have a very long bus trip coming up and a lot of good .avi format movies (mostly xvid) is there any way i can get them to play on my iPad Air. Anything that can help me out?"

Q2: "I am on a bit of a time limit so I am hoping to get this done soon. I am shipping a parcel out to my brother later this afternoon and I would like to include the movie. I have researched online and keep running into dead ends. 
So, I have the Movie Deathnote L-Change the world, and I downloaded with it a .srt file for the subs, they are in the same folder but I do not have the option it seems to add the .srt file permanently?"
