    BUZZ Player HD

    I have the old VLC Player (the one removed from the App Store) but wasn't impressed. I was hoping to get opinions and/or reviews of the above players, and any others people might suggest. My main needs are as follows:

    - Playback of non-Apple formats (mainly MKV, XviD, DivX, etc.)
    - Subtitles (.srt, .sub formats)

    Thanks in advance!

    I ask because there are a bunch of video players on offer, so I'd be curious as to why one was rejected.

    BTW, I started this thread some time back and have since tested a number of players. To be honest, most perform rather poorly for things like WMV and FLV, but rather well for DivX, XviD, etc. MKV is so-so, but MKV can be very easily extracted and repackaged into MP4 (very often the video codec used is x264, or at least XviD/MPEG-4, so it requires no recoding) which is a much better option for playback on non-JB iPads.

    Of the players I tried here is my subjective assessment.

    (1) I currently use:
    - BUZZ Player: good playback on most formats (excellent for FLV, which is handy), reasonable settings/options, OK GUI, subtitles handled (.srt or .sub with same name as movie is picked up automatically, muxed subs not recognised)
    - OPlayer HD: good playback on most formats (better than BUZZ for WMV), reasonable settings.options, basic GUI, handles subtitles

    (2) Players I tried and rejected (my opinion/experience only):
    - VLC: didn't play back as well as BUZZ or OPlayer HD, basic GUI (no longer available in app store)
    - YXPlayer/YXPlayer2: didn't handle files as well as BUZZ or OPlayer HD, basic GUI
    - Azul: Crap to use, crap playback, lots of flashing lights but no substance
    - eXPLayer: plays OK (not as good as BUZZ or Oplayer HD), impressive but unnecessary GUI (overkill IMHO)
    - Movie Player: pretty crappy player for WMV, didn't bother trying much else, OK GUI, not sure about subs
    - WMV Player: absolute rubbish, played nothing, I want to demand my $$$ back but am not sure how - any suggestions?

    All in all, if you want to play XviD/DivX AVIs most players work well. Subtitles are handled reasonably by most, but I like the way BUZZ and OPlayer HD do it. WMV will play on most players, but playback can be jerky and audio sync can be a problem - I found OPlayer HD to handle it the best, and BUZZ is OK. BUZZ dies a great job with FLV files, which are not so common but often you get a web download in this crappy format and BUZZ handles playback well (OPlayer HD is also OK, but most others had problems with FLV - very jerky, no audio sunc, etc.).
    my question is will it unzip video files? thanks!! Jt4411

    AV player HD gives really good results for 720p video

    However, there is an youtube video about EC player vs AV player HD playing "1080p" video. EC player plays the video flawlessly but AV player HD suffered from minor stuttering.

    Seriously, I don't know what to believe anymore.......
