    I prefer air video.

    Why would I waste space on my iPad when I can stream from my desktop to my iPad??

    Good comeback

    Don't you just love this posters who try to post seemingly clever comments but fail to look beyond their one use scenarios? I guess you can write that above poster's comment as failure to step outside the box.

    How does it compare to goodplayer? That's the one I have. I've been really impressed with its capability.

    to the OP: a search of the forum would have turned up my review thread of many available video apps.

    While Cinexplayer has a nice interface, It has very limited functionality, and I haven't seen an update for some time.

    My current app of choice and recommendation is GoodPlayer, which plays the formats Cinexplayer can, and many more besides. (It also beats VLC for formats and quality, and since VLC is dead....)

    There are often codes avail for Good Player so it's worth checking out.

    Too bad I didn't catch this before I purchased last week. i'm very happy with it except for the file organization system. i wish there were some way to group the files into folders or titles.

    I think GoodPlayer just added that in the update from today. They mentioned "File system" and a I see a file cabinet icon in the bottom, but I haven't looked at it yet.

    Yes. The latest 1.7 GoodPlayer supports "group the files into folders":

    1 Click file manager icon,enter the new file manager
    2 Create some new folders
    3 Click "Edit" button
    4 Select the files to be moves
    5 Click "Cut" icon
    6 Go to the destination folder
    7 Click "Paste" icon, the files will be moved to the new folder

    which video you want to play? I prefer netflix for video streaming. I think it is the best iphone apps ever created for video.

    netflix is a different kind of app. It,s a streaming service, wheras cinexplqyer or goodplayer are local video players, playing vids stored on the ipad. The two types aren't really in the same market space.

    Airplayer mentioned above streams videos stored on your computer to your ipad. It is sort of the middle grou d between the two, but it streams videos you own, as opposed to netflix.
