    Not sure if this was posted already, so I'll understand if this get merged, or whatever.

    But I was just reading about hidden iPhoto for iOS gestures and decided to try some out for myself.

    Now while messing around, I managed to select a whole lot of photos including random videos I had taken on my iPad 3. So, upon seeing all these 'play' buttons on the videos, I pressed them, expecting the previous one to pause as I pressed the next one.

    But nope. I only have 4 1080p recorded iPad videos on hand, and they all played at the same time. With a small amount of stutter. Okay, a decent amount of stutter.

    Just amazing!

    EDIT: seems like you can only play the first 4 videos you select by tapping and holding a thumbnail (or by tapping and holding two fingers, it'll select all images including and between).

    Also, the video playback is rather buggy.

    Interesting. It seems the most the iPhone 4 can do with natively recorded 720p is 3 videos stutter free. Add that fourth and it stutters fairly well. Still, my C2D MacBook couldn't do that! Just goes to show you how optimized these chips are for media.
