Has anyone tried to watch the videos on an iPad? Does it work? Which iPad do you use? I'm not talking about BOINC.

I don't watch using an iPad myself, but my son let me borrow his iPad for a test. It's one of the original iPads.

Using the Safari browser (is there any other?), the videos show a little small unless I made them full screen. Then they were great.

I can't use full screen on my regular monitor because it gets too big and I'd have to be six feet away to see it. But full screen on the iPad was actually a really good size, about 50% larger than what I can get on my computer.

Yep, full screen viewing a Wildlife video on a desktop monitor is a no-go for me too. And using the standard size, the videos are too small for my old eyes.
But I found that zooming in/out the video page - by means of key combinations CTRL-+ and CTRL-- - gives the best results for me. This way the video is zoomed too and I'm able to adjust its size to my personal gusto.

I hadn't thought of using CTRL/+. Two steps up is just about perfect for me.
