Hello, I was able to play 1080P on my iPod Touch 3G using VLC, I couldn't get it on there by iTunes as iTunes says you can't copy it unless it's 480P. But if you copy it using PhoneView or SSH it'll play using VLC and play real nice no problems, lags, or anything. I used top to find out how much CPU it's using and it said 20%. I haven't tested battery life other then watching a 2:24 minute video from the HD area of QuickTime Guide and it was from 98% to 98% at the end. I say if apple wants to get rid of people buying a Zune HD because it plays HD, they should come out with a $5-$30 adapter that takes 1080P from the iPod to HDMI out and maybe add HDMI recording so you can record HD tvshows to watch on the go. What's your idea on this?
