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)
4/12/2017 11:54:07 PM 4/5 By eraj.q
Everything is super good but only cant play while display off 🙁

Updates failed (2.1.03)
4/5/2017 6:15:55 PM 1/5 By Asher Ryu
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)
6/28/2016 5:19:00 PM 4/5 By Sam2719
This app is really nice

Awesome Player (2.1.03)
6/28/2016 2:16:00 AM 5/5 By {JO3Y}
So versatile and functional. I'm so happy to have this program.

Great until the last update. (2.1.03)
6/27/2016 6:49:00 AM 2/5 By isporei
Worked great until the last update. Now none of my files will show video all I get is sound. Looks like I will be moving on to another player.

Great (2.1.03)

Nice App (2.1.03)
6/25/2016 9:10:00 AM 4/5 By BrownBeezy
Been using GPlayer for a while now. Functionality is good. My only issue is I haven't found a way to export file strait to email or link text msg. Other than that, I use it regularly.

Great! (2.1.03)
6/25/2016 4:01:00 AM 5/5 By wxk win
Developers,I've been using your app for more than 2 years. Gplayer is The BEST video players in my iPhone. However, photo browser is still not steady.Sometimes the operating bar cannot appear so that I have to quit the software and relaunch, in order to browse another folder. Please make sure that one tap on the screen can bring me the return button. Thx a lot

Best I've found. (2.1.03)
6/23/2016 5:42:00 AM 3/5 By Netocho
It doesn't crash as long as you just watch straight one video after another and don't go back to the files screen or navigate too much. It's also suffering the video codecs copyright changes in certain kind of files, so you can watch video but not sound, or viceversa, depending the case. It is not perfect but still I think it's the best I've tried.

I love it until May 30th (2.1.02)
6/2/2016 12:14:00 PM 5/5 By Philipe Caldas
After divx problems, it does not show subtitles anymore! Aka srt files!

. (2.1.01)
4/26/2016 10:11:00 PM 5/5 By Sweetness0873
Works well with several types of files, and doesn't take up too much room for the type of app it is...

👌🏾 (2.1.01)

very good!不错!a nice app!

Very good app (2.1.01)
4/21/2016 3:40:00 AM 5/5 By Sweetness0873
Great app for storing .mpg/.avi/.mp4 files on your apple product! Rarely hangs up, allows for renaming files on your device, and allows for viewing of your saved music videos or porn... Yes, I said porn, because we all know that's what most guys will use something like this for, myself included... It does have a tendency to delay or hang on the audio aspect for files on the iPad, while it does fine on the smaller devices... It may be due to the processor trying to put all the video onto the larger screen that messes with it...

Solid app.. Thanks for the updates (2.1.01)
4/14/2016 2:06:00 AM 4/5 By -brando
I noticed quite a few reviewers were quick to leave one star and express dissatisfaction for the last update that had issues with iOS 9.3.1 (which is fair), but after it was PROMPTLY fixed, those reviewers are nowhere to be found. I suppose that just comes with the territory. Anyway, thank you for a solid app. That said, I would like to see a more robust share sheet extension and an ability to import/export videos & photos in-app. Even so, that still doesn't take away from a very useful media player. Thanks again! Word to all reviewers: if an app is causing problems, sure - express your concerns... BUT when an app's issues are resolved......................... It's about decency people.

Great, but... (2.1.01)
4/13/2016 3:55:00 PM 5/5 By wasp604
1. There is no "open in" feature that I know of, which can get annoying when you want to send a video/sound clip to someone via iMessage or another app. 2. There is no inter-app audio. If there were, I could listen to movies through the Mimi Music app, which enhances dialogue greatly. 3. No developer contact information.

On iPad, app passcode is small (2.1.00)
4/11/2016 5:46:00 AM 5/5 By Ditmark
When protecting the content inside the app on iPhone, content can't be watched because the app prompts passcode validation, this is NOT working as it should on the iPad because this prompt is too small and media thumbnails and titles can be seen. I wish it could get fixed please.

Crash when opening videos or folders! (2.1.00)
4/9/2016 3:56:00 AM 1/5 By hjq84
Please fix. Don't work after this update.
