    I have an iPad 2 and a iPhone 4S and I'm looking for an app that plays 720p/1080p mkv with external srt subtitles over SMB.

    I've seen this "nplayer" on the app store but I would like to know from anyone that bought it first if it works before purschasing...
    If theres none that works well on app store which one from cydia should I use?

    thanks!

    I would also look for posts by Menneisyys2, he/she seems to be the resident expert on this has lots of posts about streaming movie apps.

    Get nPlayer, it's by far the best for this. Just posted a full roundup as an answer to your question:
