    I shot some DV in 1080p and when converting it in iMovie I see this message that prompts me to believe that iMovie thinks that 1080p HD cannot be viewed by the iPad 2 and the iPhone 4. Is this correct?

    See: http://screencast.com/t/7RdVVM5ROXaa

    Thanks

    sort of, there are some holes though. i have no issues streaming 1080p from my idisk, but it wont even allow me to transfer it thru itunes.

    So - for now at least - the recommendation is 720p for HD on the web, unless one is willing to code in a sniffer that detects if the user is on a mobile device and serves one of two versions?
