|A representation of iPad via iTunes|
As I look back on past blog entries I’ve written on this subject, essentially about how to get video onto your iPad without iTunes, I realize I definitely skipped over how easy it is to get videos–AVI, MP4, etc.–onto an iPad with iTunes’ apps.
- flex:Player (no cost) – This app allows you to view more than the standard video formats supported by iPad; flex:Player supports AVI, DivX, Xvid, VOB, MP4, MOV.
- AVPlayer HD ($2.99) which offers support for additional video formats including XVID, AVI, WMV, RMVB, ASF, H264, MKV
I’ve also experimented with a few others, such as OPlayer Lite (no-cost, ads), Video Downloader Lite. Unfortunately, while these latter solutions work, they involve ads or are limited in some way. The flex:Player app works the best…of course, I haven’t tried the AV Player HD app since it, well, costs money….however, AVPlayer HD does have the benefit of allowing you to add content via WiFi in case you’re on the go and don’t have access to your computer. There’s a nice review of it here and after reading it, you’ll probably add it to your app wish list.
|Note the add button lets you put your own content, including AVI, MP4 video files.|
What’s nice about the flex:Player app is that it allows for full-screen playback on iPad, no advertising. Here’s a screenshot from the web:
