HD itunes movies on ipad mini

Hello, I just got my ipad mini and am loving it so far, but I am having a problem with my HD movies on itunes. When I sync my mini, it only shows my sd movies. I can't even see my hd movies. How do I sync my hd movies to my mini? Thanks

I realize that, but I thought I read that it still played them, just not t full res, and that people were able to put them on heir mini.

I don't have an iPad Mini, but I do have an iPad 2 and I know for a fact that it can at least play 720p HD movies.

However, all my movies are ripped and converted from my Blu-ray collection and so, I have the SD, 720p HD, and 1080p HD versions of each movie for all my devices to enjoy. iTunes automatically chooses the correction version to sync for my iDevice.

For example, if I hook up my iPad 3rd Gen, it'll sync the 1080p HD version. If I hook up my iPhone 5 or iPad 2, the 720p HD version is synced. Then, anything can sync the SD version if I so choose.

Not quite true.

In terms of screen resolution you are correct.

However the iPad Mini CAN download and play HD movies. Especially useful if you have the HDMI cable to play movies on the big screen.

If you have bought them in HD, go to the iTunes store and find them under purchased.

It appears to be a bug in the Video player app. It just doesn't see HD movies for streaming. If you sync them to the iPad, they'll show and play just fine. It seems to be a home sharing bug that will hopefully be fixed soon.

I watch HD all the time on my Mini. McTube has 1080p videos which show a big difference in quality from 480.

I have HD versions in my iTunes library and they stream fine to my iPad mini. Where it is an SD/HD version maybe it is just preferring the SD version. I'll need to try that since I have a few from when I still had a 5G iPod. Even my original iPad 1 has no trouble playing HD.
