    Default iPhone 3GS High-Def Video Capable

    iPhone Playing 1080p at 30Mbps

    Back in April it was rumored that the next iPhone (current iPhone 3GS) would be capable and enabled to play true HD video in 720p and 1080i to your television via the Apple Composite AV Apple Component AV cable. When it was finally released the iPhone 3GS still played video like its predecessors only supporting SD 2.5Mbps Mpeg 4 or H264 video.

    As things turn out this is an arbitrary limit set by Apple possibly to conserve battery life or to simply match previous models.

    A user of chinese site WeiPhone did a lot of testing with the iPhone 3GS and discovered it can smoothly play back HD video at 30 Mbps in 1980x1080 resolution. The test was done by uploading various HD movies to the iPhone 3GS using the program FileAid and then running them via the iPhones built-in video player.

    Not that this has any real usage in everyday life since HD video doesn't have much of a point on the small iPhone screen. You could however pick up one of those Apple Component AV cables and run some high-def from iPhone to TV if you REALLY needed (?) to -- assuming someone figures out a way to bypass the output limits set by Apple.

    i can see it now.

    you are at a friends house, and they just DO NOT want to accept how BA your iphone is.
    they get bored.
    "lets watch a movie!"
    "all our movies suck "
    you plug in the iphone, and start playing an HD copy of a movie that just hit DVD yesterday
    no one has seen it yet.
    everyones happy.

    you spend the next week on craigslist finding 5 used iphones for all your friends who HAVE to have one now.
    lol

    The shear size of a movie file with 1080p resolution would be enough to turn me off, personally. Not to mention the loss in the sound quality. Though this is cool, I really don;t see myself making use of this... ever.

    File Aid does not seem to output video playback through the Apple AV component cable. It does play it on the iphone though, but not in HD of course

    a 1080p rip of a movie wouldn't fit on an 8GB 3G

    I'm a helpful jerk, fear me.
