    I have the OPlayerLite installed, and it's fairly crappy most times. The audio and video are out of sync quite often. I tried to play a 700MB mkv movie on it, and it just can't cope. Sometimes the video goes into fast forward for no reason. I've tried short clip wmv's -and that worked fine. AVI's are hit and miss, and the mkv movie just won't go at all.

    Call me a cheapskate. I'm not a MAC person, but can't a MAC play most file types out of the box, or if not, with free codec apps?

    I jailbroke some time ago on 4.2.1 with redsn0w, and installed VLC 1.1.1 a few minutes ago from what I saw in this thread. However, can someone tell me if VLC can be side-loaded? If not, I guess I will have to go OpenSSH route - which I have not tried as yet.

    not mentioned above is AZUL PLAYER. just found AVPlayer recently and like it too. problem with VLC is that since they left the App Store, impossible to get updates/improvements.
    BUT what i'm looking for is an app that will do VIDEO CAPS OF THE IPAD SCREEN of other apps ie Urzu, while running. Presently only alternative is to take video of the screen with my digi cam.
    any ideas, anyone?

    I personally think its the best buy ive made on the app store. Its perfect for when i want to watch movies without having to convert files and plug my ipad into my pc. Wifi transfer is awesome, very quick too! All in all a very good application and kudos to the developers :)

    cineXplayer: it can let you transfer instant movies to your iPad without any file conversion and also you can watch your favorite movies on the go without an internet connection. Very easy to use and is relatively cheap and you can handle a wide range of different file types on it. However, Password protection and 3D movie support cost more money once you’ve already paid for the application.

    Oplayer HD: You can sync files in iTunes the old, but you can also do it wirelessly by entering the IP address in your browser and uploading videos to the iPad. It's not fast, but it doesn't involve plugging it in. The problem is,its built-in video player only supports its own formats, usually demanding that you put other files through a long, tedious conversion process, and having to sync your files.

    BUZZ Player HD:it can play almost anything including streaming from network shares. And it supports almost subtitle types and various protocols. However, Interface not particularly polished, sometimes loses sync after pausing, and needs' a bit of jiggling around to get back in sync.

    AVPlayerHD: merely the same with buzz player, it can play anything and can support almost subtitle types.Wi-fi transfer works great and you can easily add videos via iTunes.

    Azul Player:plays just about every type of file format.You can download files from the net. On the contrary, it does not play HD and doesn't stream. In order for you to do that,you need a separate app for that.

    It's not about being cheap, it's about principle. That's the exact problem with the App Store. Any db can put out a ****ty product and nab a pretty penny from people who don't care about losing a buck or two. Then the App Store gets filled with cruft.

    Now I spend $20 sifting through the cruft. And like you say, $20 for a quality app isn't bad at all. But it's annoying that 80% of that $20 is going to the crappy app authors and not to the one that I finally settled on.

    You ever hear that expression "vote with your money"? It would be *a lot* easier if Apple just enforced trial periods or some such.
