    I have the 4th gen iPad so I should be able to play 1080p vids but apparently I am running into some troubles with them.

    What is the best software out there to convert movies on? paid or free it does not matter ...

    I have uploaded a picture of my conversion settings that still will not work.

    I only use Toast Titanium -
    Anytime I used Handbrake - sent conversion to iTunes - iTunes needed to convert it anyway before allowing to any device.

    Never heard of Wondershare.

    Use Handbrake

    http://handbrake.fr/


    Wondershare should work too. It looks like your version is unregistered though. Thats why its probably not working. Handbrake is free and great.

    ok I will try out handbrake first ...

    Ya my wondershare is not registered yet, it is the free version so I could test it out. It seems really good, but I cannot control any conversion settings in the free version.

    I found I have fewer issues if I use the iPad preset. depending on the title I might flip it to the average bitrate 2500 setting which makes a bigger file but i like the quality on my screen. I also go into the picture settings and set the anamorphic to loose which retains the original frame size better
