    Default Best Video Format for iPad3 (Blu-ray to MP4)


    I have lots of Blu-ray movie collections and some 1080p HD videos in .mkv, .avi format in hand, I wonder, what's the best video format for converting videos to my iPad 3 since I couldn't find anything definite on Ipad3 video converting formats for best movies results.

    Does anybody do some tests and shows your results?

    Thanks in Advance.

    I have do some real-world hands on testing videos on the iPad 3. After several conversions and tests I worked out the best settings for converting videos to iPad 3:

    Codec- H.264
    Resolution- 19201080 (Full HD)
    Bitrate- 1500/2000kbps
    Framerate- 24fps

    Codec- AAC
    Sampling rate- 48khz
    Bitrate- 128kbps
    Channel- stereo

    So most users also want to keep the movies' quality as well as original. Please remember the file size is based more on bitrate than resolution, this isvery important. In order to keep the balance between file size and video quality, the 1080p with 1500~2000kbps is just all right. If you're care about the video quality more than the size, you can turn up the birate cause bitrate higher results in big file size, and lower visible quality loss. If you have any questions when watching videos on your iPad 3 or iPad 2, you can check out movie-entertainment tricks, tips, apps, tools for iPad 3 & iPad 2 at pavtube.com/enjoy-video-on-ipad-3.html to explore your options.

    You can try Azul app in the app store, it plays just about any format, and can sync videos via iTunes file sharing
