CineXPlayer Is A Versatile Video App
CineXPlayer is a new and really awesome video app for your iPad. It supports many video formats, including AVI, MOV, M4V, 3GP, MP4 and Xvid.
Audio formats supported by this app include Dolby Digital Plus (AC3, eAC3) 5.1 and 7.1 audio support. HD playback at 720P is enabled, as well as subtitles.
This app also has the ability to split the screen in portrait mode with a video running at the top and a web browser on the bottom. For example, you can bring up IMDB information about a movie that you are watching. This app overcomes a major limitation of the iPad. The browser is primitive, and you will have to type in some www’s and .com’s as they generally would not autofill. Hopefully, that issue will likely get sorted out in an update, hopefully soon.
Videos can be transferred over Wi-Fi from another computer, via an iTunes file transfer or from Dropbox. You cannot, play files with Digital Rights Management (DRM). The app supports AirPlay if you have an Apple TV, or you can output High Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) orVideo Graphics Array (VGA) with the proper cable.
Another nice feature of CineXPlayer is the ability to swipe across the screen and go forward or backwards 60 seconds per swipe.
This app allows you to create and manage video playlists, and files can be password protected. The CineXPlayer website has quite a few video demos about how this app works.
This app is a nice player for travelers who cannot count on data connections for services such as Netflix. It is very complete, although there are 2 US $0.99 In-App purchases for 3D conversion of Xvid files and for additional security.
The CineXPlayer is on sale through the weekend for $2.99. That is a discount. It requires iOS 4.0 or later. There is also an iPhone version that has similar functionality for $1.99. The apps are not universal.
