    Hi there,

    Recently bought an iPad and bought the component to hook it up to the TV so that I could watch movies i've downloaded through the iPad. I've added an app for VLC player and put the movie into this app so that i could watch it, plugged it all in to the TV and now i can't understand why it doesn't seem to be coming up with a picture or sound. Am i using the wrong file converter ??? Some advice on how to do this would be much appreciated.

    VLC doesn't allow TV Out supporting.

    Stupid huh?

    Apple only allows certain things to go out. For example the native video player, photos and more.

    If your jailbroken, look into DisplayOut.

    An app I recommend would be Buzz Player. Costs some money, but plays a lot of formats, supports out and let's you stream from your computer.
