    I find that watching 1080p videos on a screen as small as an iPad's to be a very underwhelming experience, anyway. You can't really tell the difference between 720p and 1080p video on the iPad. Might as well use the lower resolution to save file size. Same for streaming. When the difference becomes apparently is when you scale up the screen size....try viewing the two on a 67-inch TV and you will see a difference.

    I meant to return it IF it is somehow faulty. I have to try other wifi networks to find out if it's problem with my internet connection or not. I will probably go to store and try other ipads.. I was too lazy to write that, because it's hard for me to compose sentences in English :) But it's just weird because I tried 2 different routers with different settings and everything is the same. Interesting is that if I set Jasmine player to automatically select video quality, video will play in low resolution. But I can ofcourse force it to play in 1080p. Unfortunately I can't try Hulu because it's not available outside US. But HD videos play fine on Vimeo website or in IMDB application.

    Can you try this link please?

    it's trailer for Men in Black 3 on desktop youtube.. I get only low res pixlated video. I mean.. it's max 480p

    You have a definite problem somewhere.....
    I played it on my desktop PC first then grabbed my iPad 4 and they both play in HD.
    Absolutely incredible HD trailer IMHO..............very high quality video.
    Bottom picture is a screen shot of my iPad playing the video...............

    Have you tried to use a wifi connection somewhere else? Maybe the problem lies with your Internet service provider, not your router or iPad?

    Looked really razor sharp to me on my iPad3. Don't know the pixelation, but one of the sharpest I've seen on my Pad.

    I am having the same issue. I have high speed connection but I am not seeing HD videos no matter where I go.

    How can you blame the guy for taking this back? He bought it cause of the advertised resolution that he is not getting.

    Getting a hd feed off a website is not something that was promised. The iPad can play 1080p videos that you transfer to it directly.
