How to Play Video on iPad Air, iPad mini 2, iPad mini, The New iPad, iPad 4, iPad 2

”How to play videos on iPad (AVI/MP4/MPG/MKV/FLV/…)?” ”Why can’t play flash videos on iPad?” “Why can’t I play YouTube videos on iPad?” There are some questions that iPad users search on the internet with high frequency.

We can infer that it has been due primarily to format compatibility. Some detailed information will be provided for your reference.

1. According to the information published by Apple official website, MOV, MP4 and AVI are the only 3 formats iPad supports. There are some certain limitations of playing MP4 and AVI video files.

a. For MP4 and MOV, the maximum resolution supported by encoder H264 is 1920*1080, and the maximum resolution supported by encoder MPEG-4 is 640*480(can hardly meet users’ demands).

b. For AVI, iPad only supports PCM stereo audio as its encoder, while the commonly used encoder of AVI is MP3 so that most AVI videos can’t play on iPad.

2. Have you ever had the same situation that every time when you open a YouTube video, it says “sorry, this video is not available on this device"? Actually, you cannot watch YouTube videos if you are using Safari to access the site, because there's no flash plug-in app developed for the web browser that comes with the iPad while Adobe Flash plug-in is necessary for watching YouTube videos.

3. As we know, a huge gap exists between the Apple Company and the Adobe Flash as we can see lots of news about the arguments and resentments of both sides. Maybe for this reason users can't play flash videos on Apple products including iPad.

For average users, it is hard to figure out what is the meaning behind kinds of parameters. Here I’d like to introduce you a total solution to playing videos in any format on iPad series including iPad, iPad 2, iPad 3, iPad 4, iPad mini, Retina iPad mini, and iPad Air.
