Hello. I'm considering getting an iPad mini and making it my primary means of watching anime from CR. I heard that a Nexus 7 runs 720p anime videos from CR great. Do iPad minis play 720p anime videos from the iOS CR app as great as a PC can?

I have some other questions. Would there be problems if a 1080p video tried to play on an iPad mini (which only supports 720p and 480p)? Or would it scale to 720p? Would the CR app on an iPad mini only allow you to choose 720p and below?

Also, some other questions: There are no animes available in 1080p only, correct? Any 1080p anime has 720p and below to choose from, right? Also, most anime does not look much better between 1080p and 720p because most anime in 1080p is really just 720p material that is upscaled, correct? So watching 720p anime on a tablet; I wouldn't be missing much, right?

Unless someone is playing Flash video on the Nexus 7, 720p video would be unavailable. The streams for the Anrdoid app currently top out at 360p.

With the exception of the Apple TV, the iOS app streams top out at 480p.

On the website, all material is available in 360p (as that is required for free streams) and 480p. 720p and 1080p are the ones you sometimes don't have available. Currently, none of the devices make 1080p streams available, only the Flash streams for web browsers. The 360, PS3, and Apple TV all max out at 720p.


UPDATE: Since this was originally posted, I had been informed by BK that the iOS app was updated at some point (apparently silently) to support HD, and 720p streams are now available. Also, the Apple TV supports 1080p.

For some reason this thread was showing up as updated 2 hours ago (although I saw no edits except the one I'm making now), so I thought I might as well update the info since this had been bumped.
