VM Player HD app review: video player for iPad



Introducing VM Player HD, a solid media player iPad app in the Utilities category of the App Store that provides comprehensive support for a wide range of file formats while offering a whole host of integral playback features.

This is actually one of the better video player apps that I’ve seen for iPad in recent months, and although my expectations were set quite low initially I’ve been pleasantly surprised by what a good job the developer has done here.

This app gives you everything you need to enjoy high-definition video playback on your iPad, providing full support for .AVI, .MKV, .MOV, .MP4, .FLV, .MPG, .WMV, and .ASF file formats.

You’ll also benefit from support for .WAV, .MPC, .FLAC, and other audio formats, and I’m particularly pleased to see .FLAC support as this high-quality lossless format really must be heard to be believed; if you can find your favorite album in the format then check it out and you’ll see for yourself.

Override Your iPad Speaker Volume

VM Player HD offers a fairly comprehensive range of playback features, including options for adjusting aspect ratio and audio delay syncing so that you can get everything looking and sounding perfect before starting your favorite movie or TV show.

I’m also pleased to see that this app offers a significant volume boost compared to what is usually allowed on iPad, so while you won’t want to butcher your built-in speaker I do like to see the basic iOS device functionality being overridden from time to time.
