    I need an alternative to VLC as I no longer use my iPhone 5 that has VLC installed. They stopped releasing it at the app store. I am looking for an alternative both free and paid. The following features are what I am looking for:

    - Wifi transfer (type in IP and drag and drop like VLC)
    - Play music/video when in hibernate mode. The reason is that I like to shut off the screen while listening to music and save some battery.
    - Repeat option

    I tried CineXplayer but doesn't allow playing music/video when I put it into hibernate mode and I do not see the repeat option.

    Does anyone know of a good app?

    Wait, what? VLC was removed AGAIN? Why? Didn't they release a version for iOS like a year ago after being gone for like 2 years?
