One of the reasons, i didn't want to get an iPad was because of the limitation to be expected when playing videos. I wouldn't be able to play mkv, mov and divx format videos plus a lot of other video formats. Because of this i kept off the iPad.

So it was great news to me when VLC for iPad was announced, finally an app that would allow me play other video formats and if this iPad version was anything like its PC or Mac brother then it was sure to be an awesome app.
This single application influenced my decision to buy an iPad.

VLC is a free and open source multimedia player. It reads almost every video file, yet it's very powerful and simple to use.

VLC for ipad plays so many video formats that i was simply blown away but i was shocked when VLC for iPad choked on my mkv files. When ever i tried to play a mkv file i get an error telling me my iPad is probably to slow o play the file, when i tell it to play the file anyway, the audio plays flawlessly but you get no video.

This wasn't acceptable to me as i had grown the habit of converting most of my video files to mkv format to save space and retain quality so off i went in search of a better Video Player for my iPad and i boy did i find one.

At just $2, Buzz Player is in my opinion the best Video player available for the iPad. So far i am yet to come across a video file that it doesn't play.
