HD to iPad

I think this is because the Beeb use the AAC SBR extension on the audio 
part of their HD content. I have exactly the same problem trying to play 
these files on my Android tablet. The Nvidia codecs are lacking SBR 
support and I suspect the iPad3 has the same problem.

I have to convert using handbrake too :(
