    Free is possible. I'm looking for something like MxPlayer on Android, which allows to fast forward and rewind with gestures, and also turn up the brightness and volume.

    Thanks.

    My pick would be Infuse Pro. Worth the price tag IMO

    I use the free version of Infuse. I like that I can wirelessly download movies from my network to my iPhone without getting near iTunes. It also has the gestures you're looking for.

    nPlayer is a really good alternative. Has tons of functionality and great playback. It also costs money, as will any player that can decode DTS and other formats that requires licences to implement.

    I checked your app details in Store. It gets well designed. But it only gets one review. I suppose you need to boost it with many organic installs and positive reviews, besides posting here. It will rank your app top and will drive more new users to your app.

    Wish you luck!

    nPlayer (my choice)
    infuse pro

    These two are constantly upgraded and have been pretty consistent over the years. If you really want to stay on iOS, forget about the hefty price. Any of these two are worth the price. Both have free versions, so you can always try before you decide.

    I agree Infuse and nPlayer are great options but costs you some money but have many codecs they support and also include Chromecast support. nPlayer is also great with audio files. Infuse has better metadata support.

    Another great free option was VidOn but I haven't been using it since a while so I don't know if it still works as it should. That app is limited in features and supported codecs though.

    Infuse is my default, although I'm back to AVPlayerHD for now as it has PiP and Split Screen support for MP4/MKV, and Split Screen for avi.

    MoliPlayer is pretty good and so is AVPlayerHD. For a free app, MoliPlayer is surprisingly powerful and has in-app purchases to unlock additional functionality.

    I use animuplyr simply because it renders subtitles the way it should be as on a desktop/laptop. Though it doesn't get updated and not as neat as infuse player.

    So do I NOW. I made a suggestion here:
    http://forums.macrumors.com/threads/infuse-for-apple-tv-released.1942307/page-33#post-23724538

    And besides that, I think the only bad thing about Infuse is the inability to play audio files. It can't recognize MP3 or FLAC, while nPlayer can...

    For Apple-TV, I would recommend using VLC (free) and Infuse (paid), which is better than VLC, except for the fact that does not store files locally, which VLC can.

    I always use VLC player in my phone. First, it is a free app and second it provides security for the videos. We can use pass-code to lock the videos in VLC app and protect the videos from others. And VLC can download and play the apps directly from the Dropbox.

    Can apps be free and still decode AC3? I thought app developers had to pay a licensing fee for that functionality?

    I never heard of that PlayerXtreme app. It looks nice and feature wise it has a lot to offer as well. What features are for the Pro users (4.99 dollar once)? It does seem to lack a few feature (e.g. opensubtitles.org support which Infuse has or AC3 support) that e.g. nPlayer and Infuse offer but they are also more expensive and depending on the usage it might be great for some.

    Normally AC3 is only offered in paid apps due to the fact of the licensing fees indeed.
    Paid apps such as Infuse and nPlayer offer this.

    They can be, in theory, but I doubt that devs would want to fork out those fees out of their own pockets without passing them on to customers.
