I have 1080p that streams perfect and some that needs to buffer every 5 minutes. 99% of my 720p if perfect but I have one 720p movie that buffers every 5 to 10 minutes. I'm not very tech savy but it seems to me, the bigger the file size the harder for my little ultra + to keep up.
Over all i love it, but if you have alot of 1080p I think you need to go bigger and better. Oh, it streams to my laptop without a problem aswell using plex.
I think you are jumping to a conclusion that the Ultra is the problem. There are several other possibilities.
For instance, it could also be the WiFi connection to the iPad. I don't see how it would be related to file size itself, though it certainly could be related to the peak bitrates in the files. Are you trying to stream 1080p over 802.11G?
