    Yes it does. By side loading I just mean being able to add the movies directly to the app without syncing through iTunes. Many can do this through iTunes file sharing or by wifi transfer from a network share. OPlayer actually does both and there is a lite version for you to experiment with.

    I guess the best way to to frame the question would be:
    The Oplayer will play a 3.6 gig mp4 video while the iPad2 video player will only play the same video once it's been converted to a 1.8 gig iPad version (in iTunes). It seems to me that the Oplayer is using a inferior software decoding on a superior file and iPad2 player is using superior hardware decoding on an inferior file. Which (in theory) should be better?

    BTW I have both but I'm curious about the theoretical potential (or lack thereof) of what is available.

    +1 for avplayerhd - I just bought it for my iPad 2 and so far it's handled all the MKV and AVI files I've thrown at it so far.....

    AVplayerHD really is one of the if not the best Apps for video on ipad,

    No conversions need to be done so no lose of video or sound, and it can handle most formats thrown at it, well the ones i have anyway.

    No glitches or frame slow down, really impressive app

    Many thanks to everyone who has taken the time to reply. After much deliberation I chose to stick with avplayer. The video support is flawless, but I still wish I could transfer files faster...

    Who knows, maybe iOS 5 will bring something new in teems of that functionality.

    I have a m2ts hd file captured from a high def PBS show using Haupage hardware (6.5 gigs for a one hour show). When I try and play on the AVplayerHD the sound isn't synching with the video. Is there anything I can do to fix this or is the resolution just too high for this player?

    So i picked up AVPlayerHD for my iPad2..i havent installed it on my iPad (ONE) yet...

    I threw about 10 AVI's at it.. flawless victory!

    I had the OLD CineXPlayer for my Ipad ONE..which was pretty good! even played AC3 audio! .. I installed the latest CineXPlayer on my Ipad 2, and it wont play crap..no audio on more than 80% of my movies.

    Those same movies worked in AVPlayerHD

    Well..i paid $3.00 for AVPlayerHD and its working pretty well..

    so i guess my quest is over.. AvPlayerHD it is.

    MUST features I was looking for

    plays all my files... very important.
    TVOut support

    The Wifi Xfer is "neat"..but pretty slow.. its so much faster just connecting to iTunes and drag and dropping files in the Apps. BUT! i love the option.. if someone doesnt have iTunes, im still in luck!
