Suggestion for a video player that supports....

1. Hardware acceleration on QuickTime formats

2. Can access samba shares


Thanks.

If you need both at the same time, only exPlayer HD (by Zhigang Chen http://itunes.apple.com/app/explayer...418100406?mt=8 ). XBMC also supports both simultaneously BUT it doesn't support iPad 3 Retina and requires jailbreaking.

If pre-downloading (vs. streaming) is OK (pre-downloaded files are easy to play back in HW), a lot more players are available. Let me know if you need more info on the latter players.

Then, get exPlayer HD - or jailbreak and install XBMC.
