Can iPad play 720p videos? With its maximum screen resolution is 1024×768 pixels, 720p video can be really played on iPad and maintained with its native resolution? We know that the iPad’s screen isn’t HD. It’s not even in a 16:9 aspect ratio. To play 720p video at 720p, we need a screen that supports a 1280 x 720 resolution (921,600 pixels). But the iPad just has a 1024 x 768 resolution (786,432 pixels) with the old-school television 4:3 ratio. So I have always had doubts about the truth of playing 720p HD videos on iPad.
April 5, 2010-the first day I got my iPad, I could not wait to unpack it and load my prepared 720p (1280 * 720 * 30p video, H.264 encoding, bitrate to achieve about 4M) trailer for “Iron Man 2″ to my iPad…Whoa. Absolutely gorgeous. Watching movies on the plane will never be the same again. The 720p video could be perfectly played on my iPad.
In order to make the best use of its larger, high-resolution screen for movie enjoyment, I tried to put some complete HD movies like Avatar, Twilight, or Harry Potter Series, etc which in 1080p or 1080i MKV, M2TS, or WMV format from my computer to iPad. First I converted these high quality 1080p or 1080i MKV, M2TS videos to iPad workable format HD MP4 (h.264, AAC encoded) and preset the best output video/audio parameters with an excellent iPad Video Converter on PC, after conversion, I synced these converted MP4 videos to my iPad via iTunes and enjoyed with my family. Wow, it was amazing; we had sat through the entire movies without a hitch, the image quality is exactly good with 720p effect.
Until now, I’m pleased with my iPad, for its convenience, its wide/gorgeous screen, its long battery life, its fast speed, and its 720p content support.
