    I am copying some converted DVD films as .MP4s to my iPad 2 and would like to know what is the maximum file size that iOS allows on the iPad.

    So far I have not tried, using iTunes on a Win-7 computer, any file larger than 2GB.

    Is there a 2GB limit or some other maximum file size with iOS?

    Anyone know?

    No file size restriction as far as I'm aware.

    Curious to know what app you're using to play the .mkv files on your iPad. GoodPlayer seems to be about the only one that they work with and then not very well. TIA!

    AvPlayerHD. It plays the .mkv files flawlessly, no stuttering, no sync issues what so ever. Best app I have purchased yet for movies!
