FlexPlayer: Watch Almost Any Video On iPad Without Converting

by on August 5th, 2011

A nice new free app has hit the App Store, called FlexPlayer. This app is similar to CineXPlayer and VLC in that you drag video files to your device via iTunes Home Sharing, and the app converts the video when you watch it, saving you time.

FlexPlayer is free, and if you’re looking for the easiest way to watch non-Apple friendly videos on your iPad, this one looks like a winner.

☆ Universal application for your iPhone, iPad, and/or iPod Touch
☆ Supports almost any video format
☆ Transfer videos from your Computer using iTunes File Sharing
☆ Play videos from e-mail attachments and many other Apps

Supported video quality:
Up to full HD quality (1920 x 1080 pixels) for QuickTime media files (mp4, mov, m4v, mph)
Up to DV quality (720 x 576 pixels) for other media files (flv, mkv, wmv, avi, asf, divx, xvid, vob, …)

Supported file formats:
AVI, DivX, Xvid, VOB, MKV, MP4, MOV, OGM, WMV, FLV (plus many more)

    Tried it just now.  It won’t show nor play the video loaded into it via iTunes and the app crashes within seconds.  I deleted it.  Thank goodness it was free.

    MKV files run smooth, unlike with VLC which look pixelated sometimes. The MP4 files (at least the one I uploaded) had frozen video, but the audio was still running in the back, for this same file VLC says that it is to big to be able to play it!

    Can anyone tell me how to delete videos on Flexplayer? Seems to be similar to VLC with the exception that deleting from app isn’t as obvious.

    You’ll have to delete in iTunes, and sync.

    Gary how did you delete the video in iTunes? I tried to sync a 7Gb mkv. It stopped transferring after it got 1Gb and now it’s unplayable and I can’t delete it or any of the other videos I dragged and dropped into the app in iTunes.

    Does it show up in iTunes under the app? You should be able to untick it and sync.
