    i am looking for another video player for my iPad3 for two reasons

    1. to play more formats
    2. to be able to zoom in on 2.35 videos without going full screen like the built in player. i find the normal screen too small but full screen cuts out too much

    i tried 'Playable' free version and while it appears to do the above its playback is jerky

    i intend to try 'Goodplayer' but would appreciate knowing in advance if it does these features or any other suitable player

    Thanks

    Doh, how did i miss that!

    doing some research now on AVPlayerHD but cant find anything on increasing video size incrementally by zooming NOT changing the resolution

    Just tried the free OPlayerHD and that too stutters with a test vidio which is perfect with the iPad built in player. no zooming either just selection of 1:1, 16:9 4:3 which puts picture out of resolution on th iPad

    bit the bullet and bought AVPlayerHD and WOW!
    playback is flawless on test video and it has a few zoom options the last of which will expand stuff just enough to make it bigger and more enjoyable while not distorting the picture

    A+++++ App

    when a video is playing you can toggle through the various modes which i assume are the same as in settings which are:
    auto
    16:9
    4:3
    1:1
    2.54:1

    setting it to 4:3 works well for me as 2.35 material is bigger(not full screen) yet doesn't crop too much off the sides, it is a pity the built in player only gives you original or full screen.
    i assume this tells the player the screen is 4:3?
    i am a bit of a purist, having a dedicated cinema room with a projector, and this goes against the grain but i believe in original format it really is too small to enjoy.

    What player are you talking about here? The powers that be removed your link, so we don't know.

    BTW just why are outside links not permitted?
