I love bluray movies, they look like nothing else. Naturally I would want to be as close to the same experience with everything I watch. My iPad 2 was incapable of smoothly playing high definition videos, not to mention the pixel limitations. So I got my iPad 3 today and decided to put it through its paces with the following: 720p espisode of the Entourage @ 600MB 1080p Tin Tin's Adventures @ 7.94GB App used: AV Player HD Despite no bumped CPU clockspeed the 720p file plays butter smooth and looks sublime. On the iPad 2 it was totally unwatchable and was stuttering. It's an absolute dream to watch the file on the iPad 3 and the colours are awesome. Nevertheless you aren't talking HD if you aren't talking 1080p and I took a deep breath before I pressed play to see whether the 8GB Tintin movie would play. Unfortunately it didnt flow, there were stutter..............but not hopelessly so. The app has to been updated for the iPad 3 but if it does I am confident that the Tintin movie should be able to flow. Some better software optimisation and possibly hardware acceleration could make the iPad 3 swallow any MKVs you throw at it. Overall I am very pleased that at least a 720p file flows on an app that has not been updated for the new hardware yet. That is very encouraging and awesome! This is an important improvement having been an iPad 2 owner. Thankfully I ordered the 32GB version to serve my HD addiction.
