I still have Visual hub available to use but it is not being supported anymore. Still works, but we don’t know for how much longer. It seems to me that the iPad with its 1024-by-768-pixel resolution which is just perfect for watching video will have a lot of video converters thrown at it.
Many say that if you choose the option to convert as if for the Apple TV you get a good video watching experience. I think that it might be better to do a scaling down of whatever video to 1024 wide and let the software you are using work out what the height should be. You will have the letterbox effect of course due to the shape of the iPad being more suitable for the 4:3 configuration. That can’t be helped the iPad has other jobs to do that don’t work too well if it were a wide screen shape.
