I'm trying to playing a HD video on a ipad2. I checked the file format and it was a .ts file container/format.

I found the syncing way off with video freezing at times but audio continuing etc. Basically not a great experience.

I'm wondering now what is the story with ipad and support for .ts format on a safari browser. Is it supported or is a played required on ipad that can convert the .ts format to a format that ipad can play?

You'd probably be better off trying something like goodplayer.....or remuxing the .ts container to a .mp4/m4v. Possibly also converting the he-aac-lc audio to aac (normal aac?)
