    I've been tasked at work to get this file to open locally on iPad through a web link sent via email, but I can't seem to get it to work!

    I click on link and it says Safari cannot download this file.
    I tried saving attachment in gmail but even though I see the file on iPad in gmail it won't show any option to actually save it locally.

    Does anyone know how to get this to open locally on iPad???

    You'll have to convert it - the iPad doesn't read avi's.

    How do I do that though when accessing the file via safari on iPad?

    You'd convert it on another device/computer. If the iPad and its apps don't support AVI (I can't verify or disprove that) then you have no choice.

    Also, keep in mind that AVI is just a container format. The playback/conversion device not only needs to support the AVI format but the codecs used within the AVI file.
