    Hi

    I have a iPad4 and install 2 or 3 different players (Gplayer , AvPlayerHD ..etc), some I can to upload from my computer using ftp, but when I did only player see the video.


    Is there some way to shared video for all players ? :(

    You would have to upload it to each player separately. Alternatively, use an app like GoodReader to hold the files and use the Open In... function to choose which player to play it in.

    Due to the sandboxes nature of apps in iOS, there are very limited ways in which app can communicate directly with each other. The solution offered by dhewson is the only viable one.

    No, GoodReader is a bit of a Swiss Army Knife of files, it works fine with videos.

    That's right. It's doing the storage, you still need a 3rd party video app that can playback said file format.
