Are there any other apps other than azul that can play videos at different speeds? Specifically mp4? Azul does an okay job but it will start to stutter after a short period of time when playing back video at 1.5 or 2.0 speed.

A lot of them. Check out row 39 ("Speed change") at https://dl.dropbox.com/u/81986513/11...4-mm-chart.ods - it's the work-in-progress chart of my forthcoming Multimedia bible.[/QUOTE]


Thanks for the link but for some reason it's not opening anything. Just downloads a zip but doesn't open anything.

Other memory

I have AV Player HD on my ipad 2 and I have started to notice that when I add videos to the app, it will gradually start to increase the amount of memory taken up by "other" when plugged into iTunes. I can't think of anything else that would do this except for this app. I know that it is not the size of the video that increases the "other"section of the memory. That shows p in the "apps"section. The only way to reduce it again is to do a full restore of the ipad which gets it down to 0.52GB. But after a while it gradually creeps up to over 1GB.
Does any one else have experience of this? And how do I stop it doing this?

Many thanks.

Instead of a full restore, did you try just deleting and, then, reinstalling the app?

Yeah I tried that and it only works sometimes. Have you come across this before?
And I know it's not really on topic. But I have a few mkv files with a resolution of 1280x544 and want to change this to 1280x720 so I don't get such big black lines at top. Is there a way to do this? Maybe remuxing? I've started to use yaplayer rather than av player and can't change screen resolution like you cold in av player hd.

Many thanks.

Yup, many times, with tons of other apps - it's a known problem with iOS.

That is unfortunate regarding AVPlayer HD.

I have it on my wife's IPad 2 and it works well.

Is there a way to transfer the app to my new IPad mini (Which has a separate Apple ID)?

If that is not the case, could someone recommend which current player to download (paid or otherwise)?

I primarily watch MP4 or AVI files with the odd mkv file.

Thanks

NVM, I figured out how to transfer AVPlayerHD to the IPad Mini.

What about free apps? Isn't the infringement from selling the app commercially? Even if that is the case, I doubt there are any apps around that are good players and free? Do you know of any free ones that have dropped AC-3? Wonder if there is a loop hole in making an app free then charging for all the other codecs, i.e. the price of the app as an iap while keeping the ac-3 playback free, doubt it but be interested to know.

Qqplayer, MoliPlayer are both free but still forced to drop AC3.

Not known yet. Convert your videos' AC3 track or, if your problem isn't the lack of AC-3 support but MKV playback in general, remux.

How much is the AC3 licensing cost? MPEG2 is just about $2.5 USD per unit. AC3 shouldn't be too far.

They're asking for a LOT of money (around $1/copy + $20-$30k annual fee, independent of actual sales) - this is why, so far, no iOS dev has licensed their technology, except for their long-time partner, the CineXplayer devs. The latter may have to pay far less, being a long-time licensor and the other players being, IMHO, punished by Dolby with incredibly high, unpayable licensing fees.

Is Dolby obligated to license in a 'Reasonable and non-discriminatory' way?
If, like you said in a different post, CINEXPLAYER (or whatever it called, it's horrible compare to olayer/goodplayer) can license ac3 for about $1.

described here:

I need goodplayer/oplayer to watch my movies...

They could come up with a licensing construction that is viable for most devs. Not $25k / year lincesing fees and other punishments.

----------



The reason for CineXPlayer's being able to license AC-3 may be that they have been a long-time partner of Dolby, meaning far less license fees, lack of annual fees etc.

Currently, as I've also explained in my just-published, dedicated article (see http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?p=16401674 ), iOS devs just can't afford to pay ~$25k annually, and, on top of that, the $1/piece license. They have, generally, far less income from those players.

Ya it will work on iPad but in iPhone compatibility mode. If you look at the AppStore link there is an iPad tab and pics meaning there is a screw up somewhere.

It's only AAC that is not supported. Everything else is - have you read my review?

Has anyone tried nplayer? I've found it quite good. On par with avplayer hd I would say.
