    Hi and thanks for any ideas or thoughts you may be able to
    provide that may help me solve this conundrum I'm experiencing...

    I'm in the midst of building an iPad friendly version of a client's site
    and there's one section for a video.

    I have a very reliable video converter tool from Movavi and it
    has a specific paramater for iPad that renders an H.264 mpeg 4
    video.

    I'm using a very reliable web development software program
    and simply drag their Quicktime Component to the staging area
    and give it the link to video on the server.

    For some reason however, when my client opens it on his iPad,
    although the video starts right up it appears as micro screen that's
    about an inch and a half or so.

    I'm totally baffled and can't find a solution on the web so far.

    Again, any thoughts or advice on where to look would be most welcome
    and I appreciate your time!

    Best regards, Bob

    Why don't you test by emailing a direct link to the file?

    Seems that there's a bug with your workflow.

    Hi and thanks for the offer to email a link.
    Not sure where to email however.
    Couldn't find a way to email you?

    You don't have an iPad to test? You might want to test it out at a store or pick up a first gen 16gb.

    Go directly to the video URL to see whether video is encoded correctly.

    Hi:

    Please forgive.

    No, I don't have an iPad and have had to conduct tests
    through my client. We have everything set to go this
    version of his site except for the video.

    When you mention go right to the "video URL"
    I'm not sure if you mean there's a testing site for videos on iPad?
    Again, forgive me.

    I converted the video myself through great software that has
    two settings for Ipad. It plays fine and at the correct size etc.
    on windows but just shrinks when played on a pad for some
    strange reason. I have searched all over the web for a solution
    but have come up short. That's why I'm here. ;-)

    Thanks for your time...
    Bob

    What is the actual resolution of the H.264 output video file?

    I would suspect the webpage or app container you are putting the video into is somehow shrinking the size, perhaps you need to contact the vendor of that software. Maybe there is a setting on the container that specifies the size such as full-size, half-size, etc.??

    I think Consultant is suggesting that you enter the URL that you're hosting your video at into Safari on the iPad. Alternatively if you have physical access to an iPad you could load your video through iTunes. This should show whether the problem is with how the video is encoded or if it is with the QuickTime component that you are using.
