    How to Play 1080P videos in the New iPad ?

    I have some .mov which is apple quick time player compatible HD 1080P Videos, so I guess I dont need to worry converting them to a quick time player compatible format. Can I just upload it in the New iPad from iTunes and will it start playing ? or will I need to crop to fit to play it in to the new iPad ?

    Thanks

    Vish

    I don't think you should have any problem with that. iOS5.1 does support 1080p, and .mov and .m4v are the native formats.

    There won't be any cropping! The iPad3 display is considerably higher resolution that 1080p material, so if anything the device will be upscaling

    Yeah, the new iPad(3rd gen) support 1080p in .m4v, .mp4, and .mov, so there is no problem to put the 1080p .mov on the new iPad and no need to crop~

    Maybe Using 1440x1080 and not 1920x1080

    Well, for me it only worked when i rendered my video in 1080i (1440x1080) using 1,33 pixel aspect ratio. When i was render in 1080p (1920x1080) the itunes could not sync my video cause it could not be played in my Ipad.

    Im using Windows with Sony Vegas and i have the New Ipad 4G. I hope it works.

    I've been using the free version of Air video from the app store that streams the movies/videos i have on my computer to my ipad, on what i believe is on the same if not upscaled resolution as the original. You just have to install the server on your computer, then pick the directory where your videos are. It supports avi as well as what quicktime supports. I'm not sure about the other formats though. hope this helps

    Oh yeah, one problem with the air video server installer is that it doesn't exclude itself from your firewall, so you have to exclude it manually yourself.

    Nice. I did a mistake when i wrote 1080i or 1080p. This is the field mode like upper first, or in case of 1080p progressive. When i rendered it in Sony Vegas with 1440x1080 the video keep the profile of codec in level 3.1. When you render in 1920x1080 it upscale automatically to level 5.0. I think that this is the problem.
    Ihave used another programs to sync my Ipad to PC but i had problems when i was to play it. The only way that i found to render a video in 1080p quality and just drag and drop to Ipad using Itunes, and that have no problem when i was play it was this way. Make a test with 1min video and reply after to see if it works for you.
