I'm sorry if this has been asked 1,000 times. I've searched and haven't found an answer.
I'm into RC model gliders and, to a much lesser extent, powered aircraft. I download a lot of video from hobby websites and most of it plays fine. Occasionally, like today, I download a vid in iOS Safari on my iPad 3 and it won't play thanks to the format it's in. Today's is a .wmv file.
I have seen video converters that run on the Mac, but I don't want to transfer the vid back and forth, that's just too much effort by half.
Is there an app like VLC that'll run on the iPad and play pretty much anything? I know VLC is no longer available.
If not, what's plan B?
Although I do have a MacBook, since getting my iPad I haven't used it except as a backup tool for the iPad. That's the way I'd like to keep it if possible. I don't mind jail breaking if that is available and helpful, I haven't looked to see yet.
Thanks for any advice,
