    Some videos in my iTunes library will stream just fine to my AppleTV 2, but for some reason iTunes won't let me sync them to my iPad 2. The iPad should be able to handle any video the AppleTV 2 can handle, and more, so I can't for the life of me figure out why this would happen... Anyone have any ideas?

    How were your video's encoded? All of my movies/TV shows have been encoded using the Apple TV2 preset in Handbrake (720p) and never had any issues playing on either device.

    That being said, I'm going to guess that you'll need to re-encode those videos as I personally have never come across a situation where you could just change a setting on the device to fix your type of problem.

    But why would it play on one and not the other? They both run iOS and the iPad has more powerful hardware...


    I took mkv's and remuxed them.
