^^ This especially is one of the things I like most about the App.

In my big report, I reviewed a bunch of apps. All of them I contacted directly with my report, some additional thoughts I didn't post on the forum, and links to my test files. Some of them responded with a curt thanks, some ignored me, some engaged in conversation with me on my thoughts.

Hustmobile has been extremely responsive to my emails, and active here in the forum. And boy have they been updating. As of now, the only vids in my test batch that aren't playing well are the ones there for extreme boundaries...HQ HD vids...

3. Four file formats tested so far, .3gp,.avi,.mp3 and .flv
4. Two possiblities for the "Open in": .3gp,.avi and .mp3 file formats are taken over by the Dropbox app itself, so "Open in" is not possible for GoodPlayer; the .flv file first will be downloaded by Dropbox app , when the download is completed, the GoodPlayer has the choice to "Open in" the flv file.
Dropbox does work fine with GoodPlayer from what I've seen.

for formats that DropBox's player can run, you need to first favorite the file. Once it downloads to your device, then the Open In window shows up.

A Dropbox tech explained to me it has to do with Apple not letting them be able to "stream" media.


First pic: unfavorited MP3..second, mp3 after favoriting.

ive been looking for a good player lately. bought it solely based on the reviews in this thread and the developers response time. thanks!

would be cool to have the ability to upload folders of videos via wifi instead of doing them 1 video at a time... uploading a season of something takes a while.

We are thinking of adding ftp server support in the future for this multiple file uploading feature.

Quick feature suggestion: Add the ability to playback files at different speeds from 0.5x to 2x.

(I had to download AVPlayerHD to get this needed feature...but I've kept Goodplayer installed and will keep checking for the feature in future updates.) Thanks!

Thanks for the suggestion.
However, since the application architecture, GoodPlayer is hard to support this feature. We will try in the future. But there is no promise for supporting this feature.

The multi-task support for GoodPlayer will come soon. Since the GoodPlayer supports iOS 3.2.x now,we need to find a right timing to remove the support of iOS 3.x.

Hi! I really enjoy your app, but I'm having some trouble with the stream from my PC. I'd be really useful if someone can explain to me how I can make it work.
But other than that, is an awsome app. Keep up the good work.

GoodPlayer 2.1 is coming, the MKV performance issue is fixed. 720P MKV will be okay for iPad 2.
For your streaming question , please check our online help. http://www.hustmobile.com/goodplayer/
And do not hesitate give us email when you have question, email address service@hustmobile.com

From online help about LAN streaming
#13 How can I play files that are located on a Mac on my local network, without running a steaming server, and without having to copy the file locally first?

It can be done by the HTTP or FTP streaming.

The Mac comes with built-in HTTP and FTP file sharing, so you need no
other streaming server installation. Mac -->System Preferences
-->Sharing---> Web Sharing is for HTTP.

Mac -->System Preferences
-->Sharing---> File Sharing --->Options is for FTP.

After sharing the files from Mac by HTTP/FTP:
1. Input the URL in the GoodPlayer, it can playback. URL example:
http://192.168.1.10/test.avi
ftp://usernameassword@192.168.1.10/test.avi
2. Write a web page with goodplayer:// url scheme,such as
goodplayer://http://192.168.1.10/test.avi
goodplayer://ftp://usernameassword@192.168.1.10/test.avi

Then open the web page from iOS devices, click the goodplayer:// link ,the files will be played back. Please note the FTP comes with password/username.

Just bought goodplayer, and playing back xvid files on it, the quality seems lower than playing back with my laptop - was just wondering if the engine in goodplayer should have the same playback quality as using VLC on a pc?

One bug with Goodplayer 2.0 on an ipad 2: If I unplug the hdmi cable, it doesn't detect and keeps saying video playing on TV. I have to quite the app by going to multiasking and closing it and restarting the app to be able to get a video to play back on the ipad.

The apple video app detects if the cable is unplugged and starts playing video on the ipad.

About image quality: the only difference that GoodPlayer with PC player such as VLC or mplayer is that the GoodPlayer does not have the post-processing module for video since the limited resources.

About the HDMI detection, we do not know if it is possible for 3rd app to detect the HDMI plug/unplug, we will look into it.

Thumbnails

Hi, love the new update, mkv play better I noticed. I was wondering for next update or after that if we could get like a thumbnail or like a cover flow of what the video look like instead of reading it by name? or even better let you pick what frame it will use for the cover and have a bookshelf type for movies/videos? and maybe build in browser will be in next update too ? and if it does have a build in browser if we COULD get download option to dl video for later view (youtube, or other videos we find on net)

thank you

About thumbnail, thumbnail caused some instability in development. So we do not use it. Someone suggested customized picture for file/folder showing instead of thumbnail , do you think this is a good idea?

Built-in browser, we started the working on it now. But it needs some time to complete. So it will take some time to be released for this feature.

Hi, if thumbnail cause problems. What about an algorithm where it go to net or something and get the movie or video info about the movie? like those fandangle and other apps that pull movies/videos dbase? or is that not possible? (when wifi or 3g avail of course) it just something to refresh our memory of what the video/movie is about or rating? that would be super cool wishful thinking?

Is thumbnail support really such a huge draw? I would have thought with the iPads limited storage space,you are unlikley to be building up a huge library of movies on it. IMHO a simple list of items is more than sufficient but ymmv.

I would love to have the ability to browse network shares (NAS) though to pull down movies instead of loading them through iTunes file sharing. Streaming from these ahres would also be a huge draw for me.

Suggestion / Doubt

Dear hustmobile,

Congratulations for this great ipad's app. GoodPlayer is in fact a good player.
However lacks a good downloader inside the app... maybe in a future version, like you said.

Please answer the following question:

- GoodReader is able to download rmvb files but it can't play them; GoodPlayer is able to play rmvb files but not to download them. We can't transfer files from GoodReader to GoodPlayer but there is a feature on GoodReader to "open in" a different app.
Can't you register GoodPlayer as a rmvb player in a future version so it could appear on GoodReader when we select a rmvb file and push the button "open in"?

Thanks in advance.

I was just trying to suggest ways to make the app more eye candy and maybe give more info about each movie. Thumbnails files size should be very very small anyway. How about view as Icon or List as a choice?

Programs like XMBC http://xbmc.org/ do a faboulous job of pulling in info about content - posters, thumbnails, ratings, description.

The source code they use to do this is gpl'd: https://github.com/xbmc/xbmc so I figure it would be easy enough to resuse. It would be wonderful if XMBC could do something like this!

Another feature request: Goodplayer should really think about supporting the multitasking features in os4 and not worry so much about ios 3 compatibility! or support both somehow..

Just like PSP?
And who will create these customized pictures? the user? or the app automatically?
In the case of PSP, the user had to create the pictures manually and it is very laborious.

I prefer the app to automatically do it just like VLC for iPAD.
