    Hi guys,

    What is the best media player to run on my ipad2 . I am currently using iFile.

    P.S. If there is a better file manager please also advise.

    I would like to be able to run avi, mpeg,mp4 and (ideally but not necessarily) wmv

    Xbmc plays everything, no converting.

    Crashes for me on 5.0.1 but very rarely.

    You don't need to be jailbroken to be able to play any file under the sun.

    App store: AVPlayerHD

    Bar none, best media player there is.

    GoodPlayer also plays pretty much every filetype under the sun. Regular app store, no jb needed.

    For better file manager : use iFile+goodreader. It works amazing.

    And..for media player?
    VLC playes everything (might be not) and I also recommand AVplayer.

    Best Apps

    Non Jailbroken APPS:

    AVplayerHD- The BEST player out and very stable. It's able to handle all of my mkvs, avi,mov, and anything else.

    CineXplayer- Another great app Store app can handle most file formats

    Jailbroken Apps:

    iFile- The one stop solution to handling file management on iOS without the need for a computer.
