You wish you could play any video file on your iPhone/iPad, no matter its format? that's why we made GPlayer.

@ZDNET: GPlayer fills the iOS void left by VLC!

* Follow our Twitter @GinkgoTech to get the free code when new version released.

* GPlayer was honored as "app of the Week" in the Appcast.

* Supported File Format Extension

- AVI(without packet-b frame), WMV, RMVB, ASF, H264, MKV, TS, M2TS... most of all movie file formats.
- MP3, WMA, WAV, OGG, FLAC... most of all audio file formats.
- SMI, ASS, SUB, SRT, TXT... most of all subtitle file formats. [build in subtitle is also supported]

* Extra Features

- USB Sync: Use itunes to fast sync movies to GPlayer.
- WIFI Upload: Upload movie even you don't have the cable.
- File Management: Support New/Rename/Cut/Paste/Delete.
- Movie Thumbnail: Easy to find the movie you want to view.
- Different Play Mode: Support Loop off/Loop One/Loop all.
- Screen Lock: View your movie even on the bed.
- Dynamically Menu: Dynamically choose audio/subtitle channel and encoding method.
- Gesture support: Easier way to do seek while playing the movie.
- Resume Function: Don't worry about closing your application suddenly.
- TV Out: Both cable TV out and AirPlay are supported.
- iTunes Backup: By default, we will not backup media data when you do iTunes sync or iCloud backup, and you can't see the files in iTunes, you can enable it in the settings page to backup your media data.


- How do I put files into GPlayer?
To add files to your GPlayer app, you have to go to iTunes, and select the “Apps” tab. At the bottom of this page, there’s a “File sharing” section – just select GPlayer in the list, and add files from there. Note that you don’t have to sync your iPhone or iPad to iTunes to add movies. Just drop files in the “File sharing” tab, and they’ll be uploaded immediately. You can even use a friend’s iTunes to add videos to your own iPhone. Also, adding files over WiFi is supported. Indeed, WiFi is significantly slower than USB, and ruins the battery life.

- What kind of streams does GPlayer play?
GPlayer is able to play RTSP and MMS streams. For now those can’t be added to the media library, but you can click an RTSP or MMS url in Safari or Mail for example.
If you want to use GPlayer to open HTTP/FTP streaming, add "gplayer:" prefix in the URL.

- I want to explicitely open an attachment with GPlayer?
If you want to watch an attachment in GPlayer(from Mail for example), just do a long press on the attachment. A menu will pop-up that will let you pick GPlayer as a player.

- iTunes won’t let me install GPlayer on my iPhone or iPod Touch?
Unfortunately, we had to drop support for older iOS devices such as the iPhone 3G or the first two versions of iPods. Indeed, after some testing, we realized those weren’t fast enough to provide a pleasant experience.

- Why HD MKV movies don’t play smoothly?
Currently, only iPad 2 supports 720p MKV file, that’s to be expected. The other iDevices have limited computing power, and cannot handle the complex task of decoding HD movies in real time.

- The audio and the video is not in sync?
That is because the CPU is not power enough to do video decoding, you can try to enable "Skip Frame" in the settings page.

- Is there a TV-out support?
Yep, supports iPod gen4, iPhone4, iPhone4S and iPad 1/2.

Comments and Ratings for GPlayer

Works ok with one annoying bug (2.1.03)
5/15/2017 3:59:20 PM 4/5 By Wit held by Request
Seems to work ok, especially if I convert everything to MP4 format. The setting that selects "play where I left off" doesn't work. If I switch to another app and come back, it always starts at the beginning

Cool app (2.1.03)

Everything is super good but only cant play while display off 🙁

Updates failed (2.1.03)

File transfer doesn't work since last updates

Everything works great but "open in" (2.1.03)
3/19/2017 11:53:56 PM 3/5 By mark dj
Thanks to the guys behind this software. Please create "open in" inside the app.

Ease of use, unclear icon interface. (2.1.03)
2/5/2017 1:34:22 PM 4/5 By Sid Vaga
I use the app to view video clips that don't work the iPhone's built in video player. It requires very few extra steps to be able to watch a clip. The menu icons are less intuitive when it comes to knowing how to selecting individual clips for sorting and deletion, and require some trial and error to understand.

Codecs for sound (2.1.03)
1/17/2017 9:43:21 PM 2/5 By Stephen Holland
I hate to say it, but I've moved to nPlayer. I can always hear my files because they pay to use the codecs.

Doesn't work on iPhone 7plus (2.1.03)
10/16/2016 6:24:00 AM 5/5 By Todou
The upnp service doesn't work on iPhone 7plus. But it works on iPhone 5s in the same wifi network.

Great App

Has always worked perfectly for me! (2.1.03)
7/10/2016 1:51:00 AM 5/5 By Oragami Master
I have had this App for several years and it has always done exactly what I need it to! Being able to wirelessly transfer video content to my device is very convenient, and the in app video functions such as the 15 second swipe gesture is great! I think my only complaint is that when you leave the app for any reason it seems to open and refresh and will not save your place in a video. That however has never been a huge problem for me personally, being that it only takes a second to scroll to where I left off. Overall, you get a lot of functionality and options for media transfer and playback, easily a five star rating in my book!

Nice (2.1.03)
