    It is not updated to support iPad pro yet.

    I think Infuse(paid pro) is the best right now,
    VLC is not updated for the Pro, and won't play certain audio any more.

    Infuse. It's the only player that will handle everything including files with dts sound.

    I use it to play files from my home upnp server. Nothing else really compares.

    I've always used AV Player HD for files transferred locally and Air Video HD for streaming over my network to iPad. Not sure if either has been "updated" for Pro if that's really necessary.

    May have to give infuse a try since AV Player HD dropped DTS a while back. Given it's a licensing issue, I'm wondering if infuse has gotten clearance or if its a matter of time until they pull it as well. I'm thinking with a $10 IAP to get DTS, they may have paid for a license?

    I used AV Player HD before and didn't realize they dropped DTS ? That sucks.

    Though I like Infuse 3 Pro so much better!

    Infuse 4 is coming out any day now as well for free!

    Infuse isn't currently optimized for the iPad Pro, but will be when version 4 comes out. Will be out before the end of the year. I am assuming you can still successfully watch videos using version 3 though.

    nplayer, handles anime mkv subtitles better than Infuse (for me at least)

    Infuse is not optimized yet. But I wonder what the 'upgrade cost' will be for Pro users.

    nPlayer. It is already optimized for the iPad Pro, and it also supports DTS and AC3, albeit with in-app purchase (this is unavoidable due to licensing costs).

    Yeah but it is not as good in my opinion.

    So nPlayer is optimized for iPad Pro? Can you confirm it before I buy it? The official site mention nothing about it.

    Hold your horses. Let me go grab my iPad Pro. I had been using nPlayer on my Air 2 and it was the best by a MILE.

    Be back in a few...

    *edit*

    Yep, supports iPad Pro native res. It doesn't have multitasking yet, but I imagine that will follow.

    I disagree.

    Infuse Pro is best by a mile!

    No, it's not. It doesn't support iPad Pro native res. It's immediately ruled out. Once it does with (probably) version 4.0, then we can talk, mmk?

    No.

    nPlayer doesn't support it either.

    Hmmm... So....does nPlayer support it? One said Yes and another said No?

    Yes it does. My best guess is that the app was designed to scale properly even before the iPad Pro was launched.

    Nothing against Infuse Pro, just that I've already invested quite a bit in nPlayer, and I'm quite satisfied with the broad feature set that nPlayer already provides.

    I'm actually not sure why @max2 keeps insisting that nPlayer doesn't support the native resolution of the iPad Pro...

    Here is a screenshot that proves that the UI, at least, is at the native iPad Pro resolution:
