It's in the Apps section. Apps like BuzzPlayer or AVPlayer will play all kinds of video file types. To get the videos on your device, you get the app, then in iTunes go to the Apps section, click on the app, and then at the bottom it has a "File Sharing" window, where you just drag and drop the videos into there and it will copy from your PC to your iPad, no converting needed.
Apparently AVPlayer can also do this over wifi, but I haven't tried it yet so I don't know how it works.
