I have a new iPad2 and also a new GoPro camara which it records in MP4 format. I can see the movies in my MBP fine but I have tranfer the videos to my iPda2 and it does nothing it only show a black and white MP4 "picture" in iPhoto. Can iPad2 play mp4? and if so how.


iPad 2, iOS 4.3

    There are a wide range of file formats that all claim to be MP4 (MPEG-4).

     

    The iPad can play:

     

    H.264 video up to 720p, 30 frames per second, Main Profile level 3.1 with AAC-LC audio up to 160 Kbps, 48kHz, stereo audio in .m4v, .mp4, and .mov file formats; MPEG-4 video, up to 2.5 Mbps, 640 by 480 pixels, 30 frames per second, Simple Profile with AAC-LC audio up to 160 Kbps per channel, 48kHz, stereo audio in .m4v, .mp4, and .mov file formats; Motion JPEG (M-JPEG) up to 35 Mbps, 1280 by 720 pixels, 30 frames per second, audio in ulaw, PCM stereo audio in .avi file format

    Thank you very much it did work with my GoPro and the iPad2. I just had to lower the video recording to 720p and it works fine. But I am also sorry that the quality is limited with the iPad2 I hope it is improve in the near future.

    Thank you again.
