The iPad Mini includes a LED-backlit screen which looks fantastic on the 7.9-inch display. Screen resolution is 1024x768 at 163ppi – same as the iPad 2 – so apps all work without any letter-boxing. Videos and photos look great and you can fit 25 app icons on every page (including the shortcut bar).
It's really amazing to enjoy all kinds of media files on the smaller iPad. However, just like its previous, the latest iPad Mini only play videos in .m4v, .mp4 and .mov file format. If you just have lots of 1080p HD videos in various formats (like MKV, FLV, AVI, MTS, WMV, TiVo, MXF, VRO, VOB, etc) and intend to play them on the iPad Mini with great movie enjoyment, you need to do some work in advance. I mean you need to change the file extension from "incompatible" to "compatible" with iPad Mini. Here I would share with you a good way that ends up with optimal video conversion from 1080p HD video to H.264/MPEG-4 for iPad Mini in high quality by using a comprehensive iPad Mini 1080p HD Converter – Pavtube Video Converter.
