How does Front Row know what size of trailer to download?

    Hi there.

    Just a quick question. I know from Apple's own website that there are multiple version of movie trailers, SD and HD for example.

    When I watch them on my iBook from the trailer menu in Front Row, I'm pretty sure I'm watching the SD version...

    But say if I were to do it on a MBP, would Front Row autodetect that the machine can handle HD video, and get that version instead?

    I believe it's QuickTime that determines your connection speed and then delivers the optimal size for your connection.

    Yea I was wondering the same thing. I was wondering if there is any way to set Front row to prioritize HD content if there are any, because all I'm seeing are SD trailers. :(

    Oh well, at least they load pretty damned fast.

    I was also wondering the same thing. Is there a way to change the settings of Front Row to always load the highest quality trailer possible?
