The Easy Way to Get High-def Videos onto iPad

Even though the iPad has that HD feel, there are plenty of HD files it can’t stomach — the maximum resolution for videos to sync via iTunes is 720p, and anything higher (1080i or 1080p) simply won’t transfer. On the iPhone and iPod touch, the upper limit is even tighter; those devices can only handle 640×480 videos, meaning that a 720p file will stall out. Generally, movies or TV shows purchased from iTunes will arrive with versions tuned for iPad or iPhone devices, but for anything you’ve created independently of the store, you may run into a spot of trouble.

There’s an extensive walkthrough over at our website covering how to use Handbrake for downrezing your 1080i/p HD videos to a more manageable resolution, very helpful if you’re in a DIY mood — but there is an easier way.  You can convert HD video to 720p iPad video with our top-rated Aiseesoft iPad Video Converter
