    What would cause pixelation on some videos played on my iPad2? I had thought the videos were just poor quality but when I watched them on my PC they looked great. I then thought that the iPad just showed it as poor quality. I checked my wife 's ipad2 and the videos looked great. It only seems to be videos I watch of motocross racing from two sites I go to racerx.com and allisports.com. Is it possibly a setting on the iPad?

    Are you streaming them (like you would from YouTube), or have they been downloaded first?

    If streaming in the browser, the web site may be detecting that you are either on a mobile device, or have a slower network connection, and be streaming you a more low res version of the same video.

    Thanks for the reply. I am streaming them. My wife's iPad 2 plays the exact same videos perfectly. I tried my daughters mini iPad and hers was the same as mine. I would have thought that there might be a setting that's different between my wife's and mine since they are the same model and the same video.

    Hi Djphelan.. - I'm assuming that all the iPads tested are using the same browser (e.g. Safari) or is there an app for the site? Also, same Wi-Fi network? If so and if not already done, you might want to try the usual steps when an app(s) is misbehaving - close your browser (or the app) and then try a 'Force Close'; if not effective, go down the list in sequence and re-test; directions quoted below - let us know your results and good luck! Dave :)
