Need a good video player for iOS
Posted 18 September 2014 - 01:48 AM
For some reason they dumped this feature. I was hoping that they would bring it back with iOS 8 but alas, just upgraded and nada. So what I am hoping for is some workaround. Either some way to activate it, or a good video player to use instead of the iOS one where I can just tell it to play everything in my library back to back.

The main video player that seems to show up most often is called PlayerXtreme HD (PentaLoop is the developer). It's free so you can try it out first. I don't have any experience with it myself but it seems to be fairly highly rated. It does require iOS 7 or later, though.

After I downloaded and started using the free DivX Media Player, I found it has very little trouble playing anything I have in my video library.
From the DivX website...
It has sub-components available for download, like the DivX Video Converter I've already mentioned.
(DivX Video Converter) converts your video material to other formats...say you wanted to get your stream Internet video ready to played on your DVD player, or change it a format that would be appropriate for your smartphone. They even have a plugin that supports converting your videos to the new 4k Ultra-High Definition format!
Remember, without the proper video CODEC available for any video player program, it won't play. Always download any available free codex upgrades for whatever program you end up using. When you download the DivX Media Player, also download their codec pack.
Also, it's been my experience that no video player plays 'em all. I often have to switch to QuickTime to play certain files properly. I hate QuickTime, because it (my free version anyway) never displays full-screen video on my PC...only a very small screen is available for my QuickTime version.
If you don't like DivX, go to CNET and download MPC-HC. Or you can download this program directly from the MPC-HC website. It's a very nice and absolutely free video player that I like better than VLC (at least so far). After reading this thread I downloaded VLC just to give it a try...I like to try different free video players with good reputations. So many of these free downloads have viruses, or other undesirables embedded in them. Often they aren't put there by the program's creator, but from the people who make the program available for download. That's always a good thing to remember for any of us who like to download free programs off the Internet.
Let me know how it goes!

Will look at your suggestions sat when I got some free time. Hopefully they work on my Ipad. Thanks!
