DTS support as of this writing is NOT included in nPlayer or any other player available in the App Store currently. This may or may not change, I've heard that some developers are negotiating the license for DTS support, so keep your eyes open.

I have no info on 3D other than it's not supported by any player in the App Store as of this writing. I don't see it changing either as the iPad lacks an autostereoscopic display and anaglyph 3D is simply a mess.
I could do OK with anaglyph 3D on the iPad. Keep in mind that it can be connected to a TV, monitor or projector. I don't expect more than that at this time.

I fyou jailbreak, RushPlayer+ supports DTS just fine. So does XBMC, but I don't recommend it for iPad 3 users.

CineXPlayer supports anaglyph 3D. I haven't tested its 3D, though.

Yeah, as I said App Store players lack DTS. I won't delve into jailbreaking as it's not my territory.

As for CineXPlayer, thanks for the correction. It's funny I don't remember it having support for anaglyph 3D as I talked about it before.

You don't know what you're losing It's like MS-DOS vs. a true windowing system - JB'n iPads are so much more powerful.

Without drifting too off topic, I know about and have experience with jailbreaking. There are uses for that, this coming from someone who helped port FFmpeg for iOS. However, on a moral level, I don't feel it's good to go about jailbreaking to the general public, certainly not on a public forum either. There are many users out there who don't know how to handle a jailbroken device and may screw things up. I couldn't live with myself knowing that I may have caused trouble for others by talking about it. But, that's just me. I know people have different views about this and I don't mind someone else talking about jailbreaking, as it's their decision to do so. That said, I know what I'm losing.

I have been researching many of these apps for a little project I'm working on.

The newer Honda Odyssey and Acura MDX have HDMI input. I am thinking of purchasing one in the near future. I would like to hook up my iOS device with the HDMI adaptor so that I can use the rear entertainment system without discs.

The audio systems are multichannel capable but I am not sure what codecs (AC3, DTS, etc) are supported. I'm pretty sure multichannel PCM will work.

Do any of the apps discussed in this thread output multichannel (5.1) audio through the HDMI adaptor? I have a collection of high-res multichannel FLAC music that I would love to play. MKV+DTS and MKV+FLAC movies as well.

Thanks

Airplay not working on apps

Hi Guys,

I have on my avplayer HD, Buzz player and nplayer.

All these claim to airplay to the ATV.

When I try air play from the movies, all I get is the audio (and Icon) on the ATV.

Am I missing something here or is this not just simply false advertising?

plex on the other hand simply works ...
cheers

You're trying to play back non-HW-playable content (like MKV files) without switching to mirroring mode.

As I explained in several of my mirroring / multimedia articles (keep an eye on them here at the MR forum - they're pretty good), you either use mirroring to get a picture or convert those files to Apple-native ones for playback without having to enable mirroring.

I'd go with the latter as AirPlay mirroring is much inferior to direct playback.

Ok, I have just tried with compliant mp4's and it looks like airplay only works when the files are on my ipad/iphone.

nplayer: The Airplay will not work when the files are on my samba shares, Is this the same for everyone?

The new version of Infuse now supports AirPlay, even for non-Apple formats like MKV.

More info can be found on our blog.

Any plans for network streaming or downloading support with Infuse e.g. SMB, uPNP or DLNA?

Yes, there are a few streaming options currently in the works, and we're hoping to have them available in early fall.

Thanks - one to watch I think. Do you have any videos of the app in action? I haven't seen any reviews and I'm keen to see how this app performs.

Im buying the player directly when you release streaming options. Looks awesome already, but I only have 16gb ios-devices so I don't have much space for storing media locally

To go back to the original AVPlayer topic - could anyone who updated to the new iOS 7 version say something about the changes? I'm kind of paranoid to update, it seems the last few updates were not really good or necessary.

The interface was updated to an iOS 7 look, and it has some minor new features.

Depending on which version of AVPlayer you have: DTS support was removed some versions ago.

Another update of AVplayerHD, appears to be working fine, although I did make local backups of the earlier version after past experiences.

Introduces "Dolby Mobile", no idea what that means, I'm yet to google it.

Get nPlayer. AVPlayerHD is definitely worse and less standards-compliant (see for example my direct comparison in my latest, dedicated article at http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1652736 ).

I'll post a dedicated review of Infuse when the promised version 2.0 is released. Up until then, I don't elaborate on it.

Hi

I bought nPlayer yesterday and otherwise it works fine, but I could connect to my synology nas only from my home network. I use smb and everything works fine with Oplayer and exactly same settings. With Cellular data or other wifi I get "network unreachable" error. Even when it gives that error message, I can play video normally from recently played list when using cellular network. As it work with Oplayer, I thought is it possible nplayer bug or am I missing something?

I login as smb://***.synology.me with my username and password. Title and workgroup are empty.
