    Hey did any of you guys try watching a mkv movie on the new iPad with avplayer hd ? Mine runs slow and bitty, under 1x speed. Also while using iPhoto when messing with the colour, saturation and all, it runs slow and choppy, not smooth. Anyone else with these problems ?

    I'm using avplayer hd right now with an MKV and it plays fine.

    I wish I had a suggestion to offer you. What size are your mkv files?

    Standard 4.5 gb for 720p but a couple of times I didn't let it copy all the way so it was like700 mb, sometimes even less. I'm really worried it might be the processor . But the games work perfectly on it so it wouldn't make sense

    And as I've said, when I do that saturation thing in iPhoto it does the same thing, it runs bitty. I don't think the store where I bought it from covers avplayer playback insurance.

    I'll try some more movies tonight to see if I get the problem more. I don't typically play mkvs on my iPad. I most use mp4s for tablets. But I convert tv to mkv uncompressed for watching on my TV. I have some really big mkvs.

    oh boy...Transferred over a 6.6GB episode of Fringe. Bit-perfect transfer, no added compression when taken off Blu-ray disc. It's playing really, really slowly, as you described. I don't remember if I tried this before or not. Also, don't know if this is an avplayerHD problem on the iPad 3. This video is 1920x1080. It plays fine on my PC, BTW. I'm going to unload everything from memory and try this again.

    Tried a 2.1GB transcode of Real Steal in m4v format. That works great. It seems it doesn't like bit-perfect MKVs....I didn't apply any compression to mine...it was whatever came off the blu-ray.

    So what is there to do ? Do you think it's a software problem from av player hd ? Apple support is going to call me on Monday and I'll see. Maybe the program is not optimised for the new iPad. ALSo I tried every single other player from the App Store and this is he only one that works best. And by best I mean slow and bitty because the other players won't even play it.
