It's Playing iPad App

If you are looking for the best iPad video player available, there is a lot of crappy apps out there. Rising above the rest is "It's Playing 2.0" which plays nearly any kind of video file you can find without converting. The full list of supported codecs/formats is at the bottom of this post, but FLV, AVI, MKV, OGG, WMV and AC3 audio are the big ones.

In iTunes, It's a simple 3 step process to get your movies
  • Launch iTunes and connect your device to a computer with the USB dock cable, then select it from the Devices list in the iTunes Library column and choose the Apps tab.
  • Scroll to the bottom of the iTunes window to see the File Sharing area where Apps supporting file transfers are listed. Select It's Playing.
  • Click "Add…" at the bottom of the Documents pane to find the documents you want to transfer (or drag them directly).

The only thing I really miss on this "non-jailbreak" iPad player is the ability to for AirPlay. It may be possible that when this iPad App is running, there just isn't enough spare memory to commit to AirPlaying to my AppleTV. Hopefully an update will include this functionality in the future!

The VLC iPad App which was pulled from the App Store earlier this year is what I used before "It's Playing" was available. You may want to pick this one up for a couple bucks before Apple decides to remove it as well. It's Playing for your iPad is available for $1.99 from the App Store.

It would have been easier to list the file types that "It's Playing" can't play...
