I thought iOS just worked and iTunes was hassle free?

That's what Apple told us, but they lied.

So if I buy or rent a movie on a mini from iTunes it will automatically come in sd format? What about re downloading previous purchases made using a 4th gen Touch?(retina screen)?

I was able to load a HD movie on to the mini iPad without any issues.

Cool HD movies work fine on iPad mini for me

I bought a 1080p HD movie on iTunes, synched it with my mini an it plays fine. I don't know what problem people are running into, but the mini can certainly play HD movies just fine.

1080p tagged movies now play in Video app 6.1

A nice bug fix in today's 6.1 iOS update is that 1080p movies are no longer missing from the streamed area of the Video app. Prior to this only <1080p movies, or 1080p movies re-tagged as less than 1080p, or only synched 1080p movies would show up in the Video app. Now they all do... and play too.

And people say that Android sucks

Even my $90 Nook Tablet (running Cyanogenmod 10) can play 1080P videos just fine.

Did you read the thread or just post after reading the title? The mini can play 1080p just fine.

It's not about screen resolution, it's about being able to stream 1080p. Up until this update, if you had a 1080p movie in iTunes, the Video app would not see it (as if it wasn't there). If you synched it to the iPad, it would show it as a watchable video and play just fine. But for streaming, it was invisible.

If you retagged at 1080p video as 720p, it would see it for streaming (even though it was still a 1080p video). So just the tag seemed to make a difference for this particular bug. With this update, that bug is fixed. Now it sees 1080p videos for streaming. And they play just fine.

Yes, on a Mini- which doesn't have 1920x1080 pixels- it is not displaying full 1080p (it is down-converting it to 1024x768). But the key is that it can play 1080p files so we don't have to make special copies for this iPad (or use tag trickery). One master file fits all now.

I hope that clarifies things. The win for iOS users is an extra bug is fixed in the Video app. The win for Android tablets is that some of them have higher resolution than iPad Mini (for now).

Nope, the mini can "play" 1080p. Sure the screen isn't 1920x1080, but it's also not 1280x720.

From Apple:

Video formats supported: H.264 video up to 1080p, 30 frames per second, High Profile level 4.1 with AAC-LC audio up to 160 Kbps, 48kHz, stereo audio in .m4v, .mp4, and .mov file formats; MPEG‑4 video up to 2.5 Mbps, 640 by 480 pixels, 30 frames per second, Simple Profile with AAC-LC audio up to 160 Kbps per channel, 48kHz, stereo audio in .m4v, .mp4, and .mov file formats; Motion JPEG (M-JPEG) up to 35 Mbps, 1280 by 720 pixels, 30 frames per second, audio in ulaw, PCM stereo audio in .avi file format
