    So I was just wondering...

    is the 4th gen touch capable of watching HD 720p movies?

    Just guessing, but it seems like it can since it's capable of watching HD youtube videos. Not to mention its own 720p HD recorded video.

    Recoding HD videos has nothing to do with being able to watch them. Second, they said UPLOAD hd movies to youtube.

    But to answer your question. Yes. 720p videos, just like the iPad. Its right in the specs.

    No. The specs listed on the page I provided say nothing about 1080p.

    Becuaes I think the A4 chip is a little too small to be performing 1080p videos.

    No ur wrong. The galaxy s and iphone 4 played a 1080p video flawlesly. If the iphone 3gs can do it too then the itouch 4 can do it. Search before u post.

    Well we are not talking about the galaxy (thats not even an apple product!) nor are we talking about the iPhone 4. This thread is about the touch.

    If it can play 1080p then it will say so in the specs. The specs say it can play up to 720p.

    The A4 chip was actually designed with HD playback in mind - even the iPhone 3GS/ 3rd Gen ipod had it. It's just not in the stock software (yet) to play video at 1080p. Although it's pointless when the resolution isn't that high.
