      • Adam Says:

        Hi again I tried this and tested with iPod sound seams to be working. Interestingly the first few files uploaded had sound then as I added more sound stopped working on all files?

        hi adam:

        i can’t catch you, have you muted your iphone? this no matter how many files you played.

    Hi, Jonathan, How to render the subtitle? In the app update, I found you added the support for .srt subtitle file and even the code page for traditional Chinese. I really need the Chinese subtitle, but not any description for rendering it in the help website. I tried to name the subtitle file the same as the video file(with .srt extension), but it doesn’t work.

    I open rmvb video, are slow and have problems with frames, I’ve read the hints, but did not work and have not found where low resolution in the settings page


  10. Rafael Salles Says:

    Sorry if I was not clear, I’m wondering about the program, where sizes What I think he is capable of reproducing.

    pixel x pixel
    size in mb

    • olimsoft Says:

      no matter size in mb, but the pixel *pixel, if you are using iphone the resolution must less than 640*480, if you are using ipad the resolution must less than 800*600

      • Michael Teh Says:

        My rmvb is 640x352pixels, bit rate 32kbps, but still play with lag and problem with frame rate,any suggestion. Thanks

      • olimsoft Says:

        that depends on the device, if you were using iPhone4 or iPad it should play smoothly, other wise you need to open skip frame in the settings page for better sync.

      • olimsoft Says:

        currently have performance issue in the iPhone4 TV-OUT

    Do you have any plan for supporting .SRT subtitles ?

    THX !

    • olimsoft Says:

      We have plan, you can use text2vobsub to convert srt to sub now.

        THX !

  12. Mubarak Says:

    I looking forward to see Oplayer opening e-mail attachment like DocsToGo, FileApp, and other applicatios.

  13. Andy Ng Says:

    I just this player to play rmvb file. Without using the skip frame function, the movie and sound are not running on the same time, maybe 1 sec delay on sound against video. After activated skip frame, sound aligned but video quality dropped.

    Anyway to set the sound and video aligned and good quality? The rmvb file works perfectly on window based pc and laptop.


    • olimsoft Says:

      Hi Andy:

      iPhone’s CPU is not as powerful as your pc or laptop, not sync issue always occur because CPU is not power enough to do video decode, that’s why play large film need to enable skip frame.

      Don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions you may have.

  14. Ricardo vercelli Says:

    How can i open my email attachments , archives .vmw and others, in oplayer ?

  15. Garykao Says:

    Could you please support the video file import from camera kit, USB/sd interface, that is very import functions, because some video files come from camera DSC, if SW cannot support this features,i must take lot of effort to transfer the files from pc and another equipments.
    Many thanks for your supporting.

  16. Philsurmac Says:

    Hmm I have some issue while synchronising with iTunes, it says “not enough free space available”, although I still have amost 3Gb and the file I am trying to transfer is 175Mb..
    ? :/

    • olimsoft Says:

      hi Philsurmac , this function is building in itunes, not matter with oplayer. it depends on apple.

      • Yoc Says:

        In fact, it sort of depends on oplayer. When you synchronize, iTunes backup the documents storing by all the applications, including the movies used by oplayer. If you put 10 Go of movies into oplayer, iTunes will backup all of them and your backup folder on your home directory on the Mac/Pc will be 10 go big.
        oplayer is good if you want to play a movie occasionally, but not good if you want to store all your divx movies on the iPad (this is the same for other players).
        That would bee good if we could ignore the movies from the itunes backup…

      • olimsoft Says:

        But we can’t access other app’s folders.

  17. Maximo Says:

    Muy buena app!!! Falta soporte para srt y después se convierte en la mejor app del store. Congratulation!!! Sigan así muchachos!! Espero entiendan español

  18. Alex Says:

    Hi, I have rmvb movie with 2 audio channels, say left channel is Mandarin and right channel is Cantonese, may I know how could I choose between different audio channels during playback ?
    I have tried to change different audio stream index in the setting but cannot help.

    Thank you.

    • olimsoft Says:

      currently didn’t support multi channel, but we will add this feature in the future release, thanks

      • Icie Says:

        Please do add this feature! It is so frustrating not being able to change the audio balance at the moment. I believe many users with dual audio videos would love to have this feature as well. Other than this, oplayer is an awesome player!

  19. akram Says:

    Hi, I’m using ipod touch 2gen, and when i play wmv, it says ‘only support quicktime plugin mode in your platform’. how to solve this pls?

    • olimsoft Says:

      hi akram:

      I’m sorry to hear that, as described in the notes, non-native video format only supported in iphone 3gs and iphone 4 and ipod gen 3

  20. akram Says:

  28. Eric Says:

    How would you connect to an rtsp stream? It comes from a DLink video camera, through wifi. And it is protected by a user name and password.

    I tried to enter the URL rtsp://192.169.0.xx/3gpp:554

    The 3gpp extension as suggested by the user guide of the Camera, and 554 being the port for the transmission, but I never got the login dialog, and the screen remains black with the Processing icon…

    It is the best player for iphone, but after update for iphone 4 (I have iphone 4) there is no sound more(((

  31. Key Says:

    I download it before the latest update, now all of my movies run sound but without image. I’ve a Iphone 3Gs. What can I do, before the next update ?

    • olimsoft Says:

      please switch off the quicktime plugin in the settings page.(it is only for mp4,m4v,mov files)

      • Key Says:

        I already tried. But the video starts with its offset. The image slowed. Before the last update it worked very well. I also try to install a new video and it still does not work.

        When I start a movie, the sound starts and leaves me on the selection page files. Even restarting the software, the same problem occurs.

        With or without Quicktime, all my videos is unbearable to watch (or listen)

      • olimsoft Says:

        what’s your platform?

      • Key Says:

        Sorry but I don’t understand.

      • olimsoft Says:

        we need to improve our help 😉

  32. mike Says:

    thanks for the program! its great! I like the wifi download and save. I am going to try the video streaming from wifi.

    my only suggestion is, a popup on the IPhone/IPod device to let you know successful upload & save.

    thanks and keep up the good work. Now I wish I had sprung for the 32 or the 64GB..lol

  33. Javi Says:

    Hi, nice app!
    I see online videos from vidiotizate web, it works good, but after around 15-20 min the app closes automatically, why?? Also is there any way to choose to start the video being watched by middle for instance?

    Also, what is exactly the tv-support item added in the last release?

    Thanks in advance and please continue improoving the best app in the store.


    • olimsoft Says:

      about the stream, we haven’t added the remember function. by tv-out feature, you can play your movie in the iphone/ipad, and show them on your home tv.(need to buy a cable from apple)

  34. Kalifa Says:

    Hi there,

    I want to know where OPlayer keeps files? which folders? You see, I am have few wmv files in my ipad (accessed using iFile). I want to move them to the folder which OPlayer reads from, which folder is that?

  35. Dodge Says:

    Why there is discretion when playing most of avi files?

  36. richard Says:

    I just downloaded your program

    Getting the files onto the ipad through itunes was easy enough, but every file I have dragged across (be they mkv, avi (divx) or xvid, has a huge lag between video and audio.

    And the problem is not fixed when I use the skip frame function. This just makes the video look jumpy

    I am not watching HD video,

    • olimsoft Says:

      Hello Richard:

      When you switch off the skip frame, it will looks jumpy, but better sync. When you switch on the skip frame, it will not jumpy, but maybe out of sync, if your video resolution is large.

  43. alzeid Says:

    Hi, first i want to thank you, for your useful and great app!
    second i had problem with playing movie with subtitle,
    my subtitles are “.sub” and i can see them with player like vlc,
    but in Oplayer i cannot see any subtitle,
    please let me know what you think about the problem.

  44. alzeid Says:

    I checked it, subtitle codec was “subt”.

    • alzeid Says:

      now i convert it with txt2vobsub, and it works in Oplayer,
      i think “sub” codec should be “spu” not “subt”.
      but if Oplayer support other codec of sub like “subt”, it would be great!
      Thanks again.

  50. Sedun Says:

    I bought this as a MP3 player which support playlists (as it says)
    Now, I am very disapoinnted because I have MP3 in the playlist, but I have to click on each to play it !!(as many freeware programs, I have already, do), but I bought it just because play MP3 lists ( whithout clicking on each to play it). Before I wrote something negative( as I am going, because it does not, what I expected) at App store – do I something wrong ?

    • olimsoft Says:

      Hello Sedun,

      You need to add them in the playlist in the My Documents. Edit, select file, then add to playlist. then you can play the playlist in the playlist tab.

  51. Sedun Says:


    yes, of course – I have them in the “Playlist” in OPlayer (where I put them from My Documents)

    But it plays only one song (on which I click), it does not continue plying other songs in the playlist. The song ends and the player does not continue play – simply it stops after playing the song – no matter how many songs it is in the playlist.
    I have tons freeware application which can open something I send it there via WIFI. I have boutht this because I want to copy MP3s to this app and play it without need to click on each file to play it.

    So, how to play some MP3s files in the row?
    Thank you in advance for the answer.

    • olimsoft Says:

      it should support continue play files in the playlist, otherwise it is a bug of OPlayer, every file you played can’t go to another file ?can you help to check it again?

      • Sedun Says:

        OK. I tried all again. I wrote my steps in this PDF – pls see it and tell me what can be possibly wrong.

        Thank you.

        The PDF:

      • olimsoft Says:

        Hello Sedun,

        You are using quicktime plugin which is not support playlist. it is directly from apple. You need to switch off the quicktime plugin in the settings page.

      • Sedun Says:

        Hi, I have done it( switch off the “Use QuickTime” in setting page). But then when I click on a MP3 file in the playlist – it says “Only support QuickTime Plugin mode in your platform” and nothing can be played (the MP3 files).
        After I switch on the quicktime plugin – I can play the file one by one (by clicking on it)

        I do not know – do I need some “special” MP3? Or what can be the problem?

      • olimsoft Says:

        No, you needn’t, i know the problem now. You are iPod gen1 or gen2 , then only support quicktime plugin, so you have no playlist feature. i am sorry.

      • Sedun Says:

        Actually I have iPod gen3 (it is 8GB model). But thank you for your answer. I hope you understand that now I am going to give you a bad comment. (It is not written anywhere + common – It is nomal MP3s and I can not play them in Playlist?) and now I have to delete it and buy another program – for me it is tolal useless then)

      • olimsoft Says:

        Hello Sedun, that’s your right, if you are using gen3 models, it should works.

  52. Indy Says:


    I like your app. I think it has great potential and it’s the sort of app I’ve been looking for. However, I was wondering whether you would consider adding support for streaming media from a server. You’ve already added support for Samba and I setup a connection to my internal server. Problem is I don’t want to have to copy files to my iPad in order to view/listen to them. I keep all my media on my server to save space and also to allow all my internal clients to use them. Otherwise great app, keep up the good work and hope the next version has streaming 😉

    • olimsoft Says:

      Hello Indy,

      For guys who likes manage their files in the PC/NAS and play in the iPhone, we have another product called AirPlayer, its a DLNA/UPnP client. can support many media servers and not limit to.

        Few related questions

        1. The Step 1 ” In More Page, touch WiFi Transfer” is this option available only on full version of iphone app, right now i have lite version.
        2. will it be possible to copy files, downloaded in Oplayer My Document folder, to some folder in PC via Samba/FTP.
        3. Right now I am able to access files from my device ( a linux based media player which supports samba) on my Iphone4 but not the other way i.e. my media player is not able to access files on my Iphone, Is it possible ?

      • olimsoft Says:

        1)it is in the download page now 2)yes 3)you can use your iphone4 to access the server, but not use the server to access the iphone4.

      • Saurabh Says:

        Point No 2.

        I use edit option to cut/copy a file from My Document folder (where downloaded files are stored) but after browsing to samba/ftp location can not find an option to paste it.
        Can you explain how to do it ?

      • olimsoft Says:

        the file operation is only valid in local files.

      • Saurabh Says:

        The objective is to transfer files from iphone (in Oplayer My Document folder) to some folder in PC via Samba/FTP.

        In previous post i asked

        “2. will it be possible to copy files, downloaded in Oplayer My Document folder, to some folder in PC via Samba/FTP.”

        The same was confirmed in affirmative

        Pls explain how

      • olimsoft Says:

        You can only download files from pc to OPlayer by SAMBA/FTP, but you can’t upload files to PC by SAMBA/FTP. You can use wifi transfer or itunes sync to upload files to pc from OPlayer.

    I’m trying to play a 175mb avi file I’ve transferred and the audio is about 3 seconds out of sync….anyway to fix this?

    • olimsoft Says:

      Out sync issue always caused by the video decoding speed can’t catch the audio decoding speed, no matter the size of your file but the resolution of your file and the quality.

    • ian Says:

      iPad……..the sounds was fine, but the picture jumpy and horrible so i disabled skip frame and now the picture is spot on but the audio like i said is out of sink.

      • olimsoft Says:

        Can i know your file format? whether you can provide your movie for us to test?

      • ian Says:


        i’ve converted the file inquestion to mp4, needing it for today, however testing another file and it still has lag of about 2-3 seconds.

        here is the information gathered via g-spot, i cannot send the file due to copyright reasons:

        Video: XviD
        Length: 00:42:36
        Frames: 61,294
        Kbps: 989

        Info: 48000Hz 151 kb/s total (2 chnls) LAME3.90.¢

        I can take a screenshot of the output and send it to you if you have an addess to email it to?

      • ian Says:

        i’ve just tried a newer avi file, xvid again, and it plays fine. the only difference i can see in g-spot is the inclusion of N-VOPS….if that makes any sense to you.

        and also, the xvid userdata now says XviD0050 instead of XviD0046.

        btw, 99% of all that is foreign to me! just trying to give as much info as possible

      • olimsoft Says:


        Thanks for your info, appreciated. it should play the movie smoothly, the resolution is not very high, i can’t identify the issue now. Hope this is a sync issue, we have just submitted a new version to apple, which has improved the sync method, hope that can help you solve the problem, thanks for using OPlayer.

      • ian Says:

        thanks….ill give the update a bash when it get approves and let you know. fingers crossed (i REALLY cannot be bothered to re-encode my library to mp4 lol!!)

  56. Lmdmf Says:


    I recently bought your app, it works fine but i’d lie to Know if you’re going to let your app read “srt” subtitles in a further upgrade?


  57. danny Says:


    I have download the OPlayer and install on iphone. I would to know how to play rtsp:// file form my server? I cannot find way to play rtsp:// file. Thanks for help.

  58. danny Says:


    I input rtsp://username:password@ in oplayer still not work.

    But this link is work on mac. Please Help!

    • olimsoft Says:

      Currently, we support RTSP over UDP/TCP, You can check your media server’s document about this.

      • danny Says:

        Thank for your reply,

        I found another problem. After I’ve clicked “Open URL”, it allows me to type a rtsp link and save it but that’s all. Whatever I pressed or clicked, nothing is played. how can I play the lik that I saved ?

      • olimsoft Says:

        In the keyboad, click done to open the URL

  59. Nick Says:

    Hi, I’ve been having the same problem as Danny. Been watching his thread. Mine is 3GS running ios 4. Like him, I can only get as far as registering a rtsp link under “open URL”. When I click the link, it gives me the keyboard to change the link or put in a new link. The streaming doesn’t play. Thought u might want to know Danny’s not alone. Please help.

    • olimsoft Says:

      Hi Nick

      In the keyboad, click done to open the URL

      • Nick Says:

        Thx 4 the reply. When I click Done, the open URL bar drops back down giving the options to go back to File Server or Edit. It won’t go. I only purchased the OPlayer 5 days ago. Latest version? A bug?

      • Nick Says:

        Bingo, solved my own problem, just switch off QuickTime plug-in. The link Danny suggested works, yours doesn’t. But thx anyway,

    Hi, i’ve just bought your app for iPad. I don’t find how to use my .sub files with my video files. I have no trouble to read .avi but when I have .sub files with the same name and in the same file, subtitles doesn’t appear.
    Do you have a tutorial for the subtitles ?

  71. Zoltan Says:

    Hi there!

    I just bought your HD version Oplayer.
    it lags 😦
    1280×544 mkv video…
    i bouht this app not to have to convert my videos to mp4 or mov file…

    will you do something about this issue?
    it isnt a cheap app to not to work properly 😦

  72. Zoltan Says:

    is there any way to make an app that can use hw decoding method?
    i mean is it possible to make it and publish it in cydia?

  73. kpouer Says:

    I have several bugs :
    first it doesn’t support .srt yet, that’s ok, it works with .sub. But if there is a .srt with the movie, Oplayer will crash everytime.

    Second bug : if there is the .idx file with the .sub file, the video will play but without subtitles.

    Third bug : the ftp client crash everytime if there is an accent in a file or folder name (easy to reproduce, create a folder named “é”). The problem doesn’t exist with Samba

    • olimsoft Says:

      thanks for your report 1) we have update a patch to fix this. 3) ftp crash issue, we are investigating it here, but even i changed my folder to “” in the server side, the app runs well. so maybe the encoding method with the FTP server, can you tell me the FTP server you were using?

      • kpouer Says:

        it is the ftp server from my synology 210j, If you have problems to reproduce it, contact me on mail, I could create a ftp account for you to reproduce it

      • olimsoft Says:

        yes, that will helpful for us, i will contact you in mail

  74. Zoltan Says:

    it does support srt, if it has only english carachter in it 🙂 i have no issue with that. i wasnt able to use sub files 😀
    but thats not a problem for me, i have only srt-s

  75. Mmg Says:

    I have download and install your program on my ipad and i don’t have sound. I check My ipad sound settings and it look fine (it means that i have sound in other application).

    • olimsoft Says:

      Hi Mmg,

      Make sure you have set audio stream index to 0 in the settings page. for non-native video formats, make sure quicktime plugin has switched off. unless we didn’t support the audio codec, otherwise it should have audio.

  76. Albaz Fahad Says:

  80. Zoltan Says:

    Did u just delet my comment?!

  81. Bigboo73 Says:

    yes I have and then I also switched of the loopfilter, but with no success.

    It runs smoothly a few seconds then it slows down, stops for a few frames then runs again.
    I have a 32gb device, maybe there are some problems with that.

    I copied the files on my device via Itunes App Filesharing

  82. Zoltan Says:

    Dropping frames makes it just ugly and not smooth 😦
    We need hw coding 🙂

    • olimsoft Says:

      i am glad to tell you that the V1.0.06 will support 720P XVID file without drop frame. because V1.0.05 has already be submitted to apple, it is waiting for approve, we can’t submit new to apple.

      • Zoltan Says:

        Nice:) (even if the skip frame switch is off?)
        i cant hardly wait for support 720p matroska MKV files without frame drop 🙂 (skip frame switch off)
        if that possible than ur app will be the ultimate video app for ipad 🙂

        (can u tell me pls what is skip loop filter switch for? thx)

      • olimsoft Says:

        Yes, I mean XVID files, mostly AVIs, even skip frame off. but MKV files need to turn skip frame on.

      • Zoltan Says:

        one more thing:) what about non english srt ? in my case hungarian support:
        áÁéÉúÚüÜöÖóÓőŐűŰíÍ <—- these are hungarian specific characters

      • olimsoft Says:

        Next version V1.0.05 will fix your srt issue, and V1.0.06 add 720P xvid support.

      • Zoltan Says:

        sorry one more thing:)
        my mkv videos has “bulit in” subtitles, encoded with the video file, not burned onto it. i cant see subtitles with these videos (english subtitles)

        can u understand what im trying to say here? (sorry for my english : )

        reminder: i had 3 question 😛

        Thanks for ur quick respons

      • olimsoft Says:

        that will support sub subtitle with “spu” codec.

      • Zoltan Says:

        “Yes, I mean XVID files, mostly AVIs, even skip frame off. but MKV files need to turn skip frame on.”

        on 1004 mkv-s with skipframe on are just rubbish, when audio sync is “ok”, but i just cant watch a movie like that, coz it is like people talking with closed mouth 🙂 will version 1006 fix this too? like it will with xvid/divx diles?

        “Next version V1.0.05 will fix your srt issue, and V1.0.06 add 720P xvid support.”
        “that will support sub subtitle with “spu” codec.”

      • olimsoft Says:

        Because they are in different codec, need to enhance in separate, we may try to enhance, but we can’t promise you.

      • Zoltan Says:

        or u just can make it happen with this hardware (ipad), coz it is just weak for the job?

        and what iis skip loop filter switch for?

  83. Zoltan Says:

    ok i have better links for full res pics, but cant share here, your blog doesnt let me do it, and my prev comment is waiting for moderation…

    • Zoltan Says:

      full res pics:

      ok, now 1005 is out, updated, and hungarian srt works NOT fine, did you send in 1006 already?
      when do you plan to make 1007 with 720p mkv?:)

      and one more time, what is skip loop filter for?

      SRT problem in hungarian language:

      well, the app wont qiut, it loads the srt too but the characters are just miss coded or so!!!!

      • olimsoft Says:

        Hi thanks for your report. 1) we have submitted it to apple already(v1.006). 2) we will try to enhance the performance, but not promise. 3) can you provide your srt file to us, then we help to check.

      just put the subtitle in the same folder with your movie, also withe same name, different suffix.

      • Dmest Says:

        The app is cool but i dont know how to put a .srt file in a folder inside oplayee. I use downloader to download files and then this other app “downloader” let me chose the app with which i would like to open the file. It recognice oplayer for the video, but not for the srt-s

      • olimsoft Says:

        yep, we haven’t registered srt file in the former version,will enhance this in the future update.

  91. Frank Says:

    Interesting…but if you want to transfer files around, why not use a service like Filesdirect? – seems a lot simpler…

    There is no error. After about 15 to 20 seconds, it just shows an empty list of Files. I will try to get TCPDUMPS to compare what SharePlayer is doing and what OPlayer is doing.

    How do I fix this issue?


    • olimsoft Says:

      We have also found that some routes with UPnP function and media link media server will crash AirPlayer, do you have one of them on the internet? next version we will fix this issue, and hope you can help check it again.

  111. kpouer Says:

    the new version works very well on my iphone 4, however I have a few issues.
    Still encoding problems with accents in SRT (maybe I don’t use the good charset ? What charset is recommended for SRT ?)
    Sometimes after exiting Oplayer when I come back to my video, if I touch the volume button of my iPhone, it crashes (not everytime)
    And the last one that is easy to fix : when I do ftp download, in the download history it shows my ftp password on the screen, I think it should be hidden

    Also, .mkvs often got integrated subtitles, these does not work with oplayer. Will you be updating the support for this?

        and is the iPad backup also backup the OPlayer and the files inside OPlayer??

      • olimsoft Says:

        if you have put the files directory under My Document, you can use iTunes to backup, otherwise not.

    Just bought your product. I must say it is a good idea,it saves lot of time for conversion. As you say you use software decoding the performance is worse than P4 (rmvb even worst) is it ready for use/sell? Please do something about it. (I don’t know how you are the expert

  126. Mikend Says:


    I just bought the soft, seems really cool but almost all my files are not working (I try AVI, MP4, MKV) I have just a few clips that are working but most of my other files are not even lunch. I need help … 😦
    Thx ++

  127. Charlie Says:

    I am having a problem with downloading avi files from a web server. They almost always hang at random points and there is no way to refresh or continue the download so that it completes and you have to start again, which sucks if you are trying to grab a 400MB avi on a hotel’s really slow wifi connection.

  128. H173k Says:

    Id like to know how can i play subtitles with movies and what formats are supported(of subtitles)

  129. kpouer Says:

    I just updated to 1.16, huge problem :
    First it doesn’t play srt anymore
    The screen orientation is a good idea but it is important to add an option to block it to some orientation.
    I’m playing video in my bed, when you are on your side, the iphone is vertical, but my head is not and I need to play landscape in that position, that’s impossible.
    A solution would be to force landscape mode.
    At this time I am forced to revert to 1.14, 1.16 is not usable for me.

    • olimsoft Says:

      The currently version, you should choose correct encoding method I the settings page for the srt file. Yep maybe we need to add a feature to lock the rotation.

      ҵ iPad

      • kpouer Says:

        But with the new version the problem with srt was that I had no subtitles, not encoding problems.
        I read quickly the charset list but didn’t saw UTF-8 or ISO-8859-1, did I saw wrong ?

        About orientation a good choice would be an option to force landscape (like the ipod does when your video is big)

      • olimsoft Says:

        1)default is UTF-8 2)yes, next version will add support

  130. Pascal Says:

    Great app but do you have news about correction of the choppy issue introduced with update 1.0.06 on 16/08/2010 ?


  131. Jack4all Says:

    What Srt encoding show I select to get polish language? Is there any polish or central europe coding? I can’t find any.

  133. Zoltan Says:

    Btw mkv is still slow 😦
    Waiting some improvement 🙂

    Ps: does mkv or avi video drain battery faster than nativ formats like mov or m4v?

    Ive tested for battery performance, and during a 100minutes avi, the battery drops 30% (should be about 16%?) of the battery.
    I guess itll drop during a 100mins mkv vide more than 30% rigth?

    Normal usage drops 10% per hour.

    How do I down files from my email to the o player or off the net

    • olimsoft Says:

      1) in the mail app, click the file to download, after downloaded, push the file, will be a open in oplayer option 2)when you off the net, you can use USB sync to download files from your PC to your iPhone

  135. Andy78 Says:

    Hi, i think this is a great app. But when i try to add a folder with the avi file and the srt via ituns sync i cant! How can i drag/drop my moviefolder with srt to my ipad so i can enjoy subtitles?

  136. andy78 Says:

    So we have to manually create folders for each movie/avi on the ipad itself to contain the srt?

    anyone know easier way (drag/drop folders)??

    keep up the good work:)

  169. Bill Says:

    I just purchased this software for my son’s iPod touch, 4th generation. It is very cool, in that I was able to point the web browser at the at the webservice I use for our media player, and play videos. However, I did notice some dvd quality videos end-up badly out of sync. I turned on the skip frames and the loop filter options, and the video is no-longer out of sync with the audio, but instead there are noticeable frame drops when playing xvid or divx avi’s. For comparison, I took my Spiderman xvid, and converted it with avidemux to mp4 for iphone. The converted video also looks choppy with the same settings. However, once I turn on the quicktime plugin the video looks very smooth.

    Chances are I will convert some of my son’s favorite videos to mp4. I would love to see an option for this application to automatically detect when it can use the quicktime plugin, so he doesn’t need to remember to toggle the settings before playing the videos. Even better would be if you could make divx and xvid play just as smoothly, but I realize there are limit to what can be done in software.

    Still, by far the best video player for the ipod touch available, and worth every penny.

    • olimsoft Says:

      Hello Bill,

      thanks for supporting us. we are always trying to enhance the performance. and about the auto detect, if dynamic detect file format, it will cost a lot time to loading movies. (You can’t have your cake and eat it too. )

    I bought Oplayer today and find it great. Great work!

    But I do have a light issue…

    When playing rmvb files, the subtitles are not in sync with the sound, they have a delay that apparently varies. How can i fix that? I have an Iphone 3GS with 32 GB with the latest iOS release (I think it´s 4.01).

    I have also a request: can you put an option to do multiple uploads or upload the entire content of a folder when using Wifi transfer?

    Thank you!

    P.S: do you know any app that allows to control the iphone with the mac remote control? I´d like to use my iphone as a media player with my tv without having to stop and pause movies using the touchscreen.

      Hey Sj, I’m not olimsoft, but you just have to go to your device’s Apps tab in iTunes. Scroll way down and you’ll likely see a bunch of apps in a separate list below the springboard management section. Find OPlayer in that list. Select it and press the ‘add files’ button beneath the box to the right.

  201. Sebastien Says:

    Dear Olimsoft,

    Thanks for your app, it’s really useful!

    However, I have one question, one suggestion and one bug report after I’ve updated to 1.17 (I’m a 3Gs user in Hong Kong):

    1. Did you intentionnally disable the accelerometer during video playback? I cannot rotate from landscape to portrait or portrait to landscape anymore. I have to go back to the file selection menu, then rotate, and resume video playback.

    2. Could you implement the iPod scrolling feature? In the iPod app, when scrolling, if you move your finger down you increase the scrolling precision (normal, half, 1/4, precision). That’s a very efficient way to scroll precisely on a large video file (maybe the only efficient way on a touchscreen).

    3. This bug is not new: when you stop video playback, do something else and come back to your video after some time (say 15 minutes), and resume video playback, the video is in slow motion and without sound. I fix it by going back to the file selection menu, and select the same video.

    Since your app is so useful, I wanted to share this feedback. Hopefully it can make OPlayer even better!


    • olimsoft Says:

      1) yes, as many people hates the rotation function, so we disable it, depends on the hold status 2) i got your idea, that’s very cool, but have some technical issue, we will investigate it 🙂 3) we will double check this, thanks

    The program is excellent. May I suggest adding a feature that supports audio and video output to a tv by using a composite/component AV cable attached to the iphone 4.

  222. pc Says:

    Thanks for the fantastic player, now that I can watch rmbv files directly without converting to mp4. Can I actually upload a few files at the same time thru’ wifi transfer ?

  223. pc Says:

    can u leave and exit your Oplayer when still uploading file thru wifi transfer ? thanks.

  224. Chupakun Says:

    Just got the program on a recommendation from my friend. Tried playing a video but the problem is that the colours are all skewed and there’s a green line going down the bottom of the video — this is not present in the original (clearly, otherwise I wouldn’t even have this file!). Any ideas?

    Does the current version support 720p playback? I tried playback on a .mkv and .wmv 720p file and it plays in slow motion. Thanks.

    Hi I was eager to purchase your app. But upon using it says I’m unable to support the format in my platform. I’m using 4.0 iPod touch 3rd gen 8gb. Please respond. I’m utterly disappointed

    Is it possibly to add the cover art for the movies uploaded. Makes it easy for lids to choose the movie.

    Hi. Will OPlayer be universal app for iPhone/iPad?

    • olimsoft Says:

      We have considered it, but you know there are many people have used both the iPhone version and iPad version, it is a hard decision, and also as the devices goes on, maybe we should do the enhance to the special one in the future.

  234. Greg Says:

    Nice app….Got too excited and downloaded it to my 3G before reading notes and finding out it is not supported. Are refunds possible? Or some other solution.

    Thank You,


  235. Greg Says:

    Correction…App is supported, but all my movies are .avi, and that is what I wanted the app for…..

    Maybe I am just out of luck.

    Hi, I purchased the OPlayer for my iPhone 4 to play avi movies. So far it works great. However, sometime the audio is out of sync with the picture and a few of the movies are greatly discolored. Is there anyway to correct this? Thanks.

    • olimsoft Says:

      Thanks for your info.

      the not sync issue always caused by the video decoding can’t catch up the audio encoding, we can only use software decoding method, which needs more CPU power.

    Hey man
    Excellent app but I got some problems with audio being out of sync when I am streaming. This is for the iPod touch 3rd gen. Hope u can fix soon

    hey jonathan..the app is great! there is one thing that dont work for me
    i read ur guide to do ftp server so i did that but when i access to the ip of the filezilla and the port 21 and my username and password it says “error connection”
    can you help me please? i have windows xp.

    • hey Says:

      i entered on the app the ip of the computer but now its on “loading” forever.
      i would be more than happy to know what am i doing wrong.

      • olimsoft Says:

        is there andy logs in your FTP server for check, and make sure your firewall allow the FileZilla to pass.

      • hey Says:

        can you please explain me how to do all that? i dont know what to do.
        the firezilla connects to a server
        and from the other hand u saying that the iphone should connect to the computer’s ip and thats another ip and also the port thats written on oplayer is 21.
        i just dont get it. dont know where to start im from israel that is why my english is so lame i will be very happy if we could do it step by step. thank you again.

      • olimsoft Says:

        Hello hey, no,the info you have input is wrong, defaut port is “21”, you can get your PC’s IP by follow steps. 1) win+r, input “cmd”, enter 2)input ipconfig, enter

        i suggest you to use the USB sync method, which is easiest and fastest way.

        You can check Online Help firstly, if you still don’t understand how to use it, ask me again. thanks.


    • olimsoft Says:

      Make sure your FTP server’s PC and iPhone connect to the same network. sometimes iPhone’s network need to disable/enable to re-active.

    Hi Jon,

    Bought this 15 mins ago and tried Oplayer to open a wmv file. It worked but when I tried to open it again to show my friend this app, atlas, it asked if I wanted to open it in “Oplayer”. I tapped on “open with Oplayer” it took me to the ‘arrow’ icon and flipped to ‘settings’ right away. what was wrong? should there be settings before using this app? My setting page is all ‘OFF’.

    Thanks for your help

    Any answer yet

  251. mavimorais Says:

    Hey guy!
    I just downloaded the oplayerhd lite to try it before buying. It´s really a great app! I got the subtitles (srt) and everything´s working fine! But before getting the paid version, I´d like to know how to change the color of the subtitles (in iTunes pics they´re blue and I don´t find where or how to change the standart white).

    Thanks for your attention!

    • olimsoft Says:

      The oplayer shows subtitle default as white.

      • King Arthur Says:


        I have Oplayer HD (and paid for it) and I’m also having a problem with the subtitles showing up as blue and can find no way to change the color. Can you help?

      • olimsoft Says:

        the sub subtitle can’t change the color as it has encoded to specific colors, you can find the srt file of your movie, then you can change the colors.

  252. alberto Says:

    hy, the tv out does not work for me in the iphone 4. The sound, and the subtitles are good but the video is very slow, not syncronized!

  253. Yamhk Says:

    I have a “mkv” movie, it has a double subtitle ( simplify Chinese English) included.(both the subtitles shown at the same, not individual. )

    The program can play the movie file in iphone4 but the subtitle can’t read out.

    So, how can I read the subtiltle?

    • olimsoft Says:

      if the subs with spu codec, it should be auto recognized, and for build-in subs, you can select subtitle stream index in the settings page. (english or chinese)

  254. kpouer Says:

    New easy feature (I suppose easy)

    Time seeking is not very accurate in Oplayer because it goes too fast.
    A nice idea would be to use the same method that exists in iPod application :

    when you drag your finger in the top tier of your screen it seeks quickly (like it does now)
    in middle tier of the screen it seeks at medium speed (the screen represents 10 or 20 minutes)

    In lower tier of the screen it seeks very slowly, the entire screen represents one minute.

    It would help a lot to seek precisely to a position.

  255. Anthea Says:

    I have download the paid version. But there is no sound when playing the rmvb format. Please advise.

    • olimsoft Says:

      make sure you haven’t muted your iPhone, if you have updated to full version, remove the lite version, and maybe you need to restart your iPhone to re-install the full version.

    Could you help me, please?
    Thanks and regards,

    ever since the IOS upgrade on my ipad, oplayer hd’s password for login at startup was on and off, ie. sometimes it worked, sometimes it didnt. and now ever since your last oplayer hd update, the password for login at startup does not work at all. any info on this issue ? thanks a million

    • olimsoft Says:

      that is because multitask. You need to quit the app, then it asks you for password.[double click home button, and push a app to quit it]

      • anton subiyanto Says:


        Thank you for your reply. Much appreciated.

        I tried your suggestion by double clicking home button and push the app to quit. However, it still has the same problem, ie. I can still go in without even typing the password by just leaving the password blank and simply push the ok button (fyi, I have set up the password).


      • olimsoft Says:

        We have doubled check that, still have no issue here, can you describe the steps to reproduce it? or try to set a password again.

      • anton subiyanto Says:

        First of all, I am using the free version so maybe it does not support password.

        Here are the steps :

        1. I set a password
        2. I quit the apps by clicking the home button
        3. I enter the apps, it displays password needed box
        4. I can type anything (the password, any letter, or even blank) then click OK or Cancel –> it just logs in to the apps

        I repeat steps 1-4 (with changing passwords) even double clicking the home button to kill the apps. The password still does not work.

        Do I need to delete the apps and download it again ? Thanks for your help. Appreciated.

      • olimsoft Says:

        the last iPad version has this bug, next version will fix this.

  283. bobcat Says:

    Thanks for the OPlayer app, I’m using it on my iPod Touch, iPad, & iPad 2. The OPlayer HD app really benefits from the improvements on the iPad 2, HD Xvid/DivX videos play much smoother and stay in sync. One problem I’m having is that I want to include a large number of movies and music videos. When I reopen iTunes (I have iTunes set to sync automatically) it goes through the normal backing up procedure which copies all the video files I have added to OPlayer to my saved back up for that iPod device. The problem with this is that my computers hard drive now has two copies of all the videos I’ve loaded into OPlayer. One at the original file location and another where iTunes saves it’s back up files. With a 64GB iPad 2 stuffed with videos this eats up a lot of computer hard drive space! Would it be possible to have an option so that the videos are stored only on the iPad, and not in the iTunes back up?

  284. Michael Says:

    Great app, Jonathan! Thanks!

    I downloaded your free LITE version at first and used it to download content into the “My Documents” folder. I have since purchased the FULL version but the files from the LITE version did not transfer over. Is there an easy way to transfer files from my OPLAYER LITE version to my new FULL version? I still have both versions on my iPhone. Thanks for your help!

  285. mike wilson Says:

    On an iPad2, was able to play xvid avi videos with lite version, sound was out of sync. updated the lite version today, saw the audio stream index and all was fixed.

    So I decided OPlayer was it and upgraded to HD version today and with same settings audio is out of sync. values of 1,2,3, etc take it more out of sync, Is it possible to give us more audio index values -2 -3 -4 etc?

    hello author, as some guys put forward above, i met the same question that app only support quicktime plugin mode in your platform. according to your reply, ipod gen1 and gen2 cannot run this program. i wonder why, the hardware limitation? i’m sure it’s not the OS problem cause my ipod gen2 updates to iOS 4.1, same as gen3.

  295. Samy Says:

    Im so desperate right now cuz i download oplayer earlier today but it doesnt open on my itouch

  296. kpouer Says:

    Since the latest version, when double clicking on the image, the scale change and it is impossible to get it back to normal in that case.

    • olimsoft Says:

      Have no issue here, can you double check it? and make sure your file is not 4:3

      • kpouer Says:

        That’s right my file is 4/3 and I have some black border on left and right (I only use landscape mode).
        With the previous version I was able to double click and Oplayer was doing a small zoom removing those black lines and cropping a little the top and bottom.
        Now it doesn’t do that anymore, instead it seems it converts it to 2.35, and the only way to get the image to normal is to stop playing and restart the video.

      • olimsoft Says:

        We didn’t modify this render feature, as 4:3 is the same radio of iphone’s width:height, so default is full screen.

      • kpouer Says:

        Finally I found how to reproduce the bug :
        -Take your iPhone in landscape mode and play a video
        -click on the button to lock the orientation inside Oplayer.
        -Then turn your iPhone and make it vertical. The video is still landscape because of the lock of course.
        -Now double click on the screen. Oplayer will resize the video as it should to if the video was played in portrait mode, but because of the lock it make things wrong.

        Another minor bug :
        double click on a video file, and you get a black screen.

      • olimsoft Says:

        Thanks for your information, these two bugs will be fixed in the next next update, as next update is waiting for approve, we can’t reject it.

  297. Michael Menzel Says:

    Also, when downloading a QuickTime movie in the player, is there anyway to watch it as it downloads? I noticed i can do that with avi, flv files ect but i can’t seem to do that with mp4 files. thanks for your help 🙂

    Improve streaming performance over SMB shares.

    I have several H.264-encoded videos sitting on a Linux file server running Samba. Some of these are .mkv, others are .m4v. Either way, when streaming from the server, audio frequently falls out of sync. However, if I download the full videos to my iPhone, they play just fine.

  305. Steve Says:

    With the recent upgrade to os5 – streaming no longer works on divx files. It just stalls at around 90% buffer. I turn on ffmep as before that helped it (even though slower) it has now stopped working again.

    Buffering is always stalled.

  306. Steve Says:

    I have to tell you this has been one of the most frustrating apps i have ever used. Its been like for 2 months at least. It did this same thing on the last upgrade of software. Every single time there is an update – this app just fails to work at all for streaming. The last time i told you about megavideo – and you told me it worked but did not. So itried to turn on ffmeg – it worked but took 2 minutes to wait for the stream. Now when i turn both demuxer and ffmeg on it does not stream at all – it stalls at various %’s all the time.
    Disable/cache is not possible as there is no option – you can put it to zero, 2 and varous numbers up to 20. I tried them all. I reinstalled it removed it seven times.

    This app serious has very many issues to deal with. also see you have an HDTV app?? what is the difference?

    Shall i waste other 4.99? and expect the same garbage?

    You know placing an app on itunes for the world to use is one thing – but it not working for weeks and weeks is another.

    I watch all my online movies with my i phone. I stream them.

    I DO NOT WANT TO DOWNLOAD THEM please do not suggest it. I bought it cause at the time it was the only programs that streamed.

    It was perfect for 5 6 months i mean as soon as you click play video it was instant. NOt even 2 second delay. It was super fast.

    Please show some care in your product and let it work like it used to. All this is totally not cool and shows lack of tech know how in your product.
    Now i am stuck since the OS 5 upgreade with nothing to watch for days now.

    What will you do ?

  309. Ann Says:

    I upgraded my iPhone 4 to ios5 and can no longer view avi files from my mail attachments. How do I get oplayer to work with ios5? I’ve also done the latest oplayer update…

    • olimsoft Says:

      can i know the attacgment file name?

    • olimsoft Says:

      Have you opened it with oplayer? does the file copied to OPlayer-My Document-Inbox?

      • Ann Says:

        I no longer get the option to open the file in oplayer. The only thing I can do is to save the file in my camera roll and I cannot open them in oplayer from there either. They are always avi files and they don’t save to oplayer-my documents-inbox. The program just doesn’t read them, and I only got it for email attachments. I am not an advanced user and just want something simple that works…

      • olimsoft Says:

        it should supports open in with method when you click the file in the mail attachment, what about your ios version? and iphone generation?

      • Ann Says:

        Doesn’t work when I try open in. I have ios5 and an iPhone 4.

      • olimsoft Says:

        which app you use open in with feature?

      • Ann Says:

        I’m wondering if ios5 just doesn’t support any streaming videos that aren’t QuickTime. I downloaded goodplayer to see if my problem would be solved and now I have two programs which I can’t use to view avi files. I no longer get the open in option, all I can do is save the file.

      • Ann Says:

        I’ve found that if I get my email on the web instead of in Mail I can watch the avi files I get as attachments with either goodplayer or oplayer. So it must be an issue with Mail. Thanks for your responsiveness, it is appreciated.

  310. Steve Says:

    yes ann the latest version basically does not work. it only allows downloads. You cannot stream any files what so ever. i use a place called mega upload – but i used it on 7-8 diff streaming sites and nothing works. The program is not updating with the latest versions and is many months behind now.. I paid for this thing and it now does not wrong longer then it worked.
    1/10 to be honest – the 1 because were able to at least email support about it.

  311. Steve Says:

    i have had this for a long time now and still cannot use it. I cannot stream anything online. NO divx is able to be to streamed anywhere online. Please if you can show me or give me a link to prove it can stream i would be greatful. I use megaupload myself but have tried it on various places.

    Anything in divx it will still not work. Spent 100s of hours trying to get it to work over the last several months.

    It just stalls and does nothing. Buffering will not stop and play the file.

    Why do you say it works for streaming divx when it doesnt any longer?

  312. Steve Says:

    Unfortunately it does not work. Same thing for the last few months. I will give you a little history.

    Initial phone os when i bought it 4-6 months ago was perfect. As soon i would click the link – within 1-2 seconds the video would play instant at super quality. Daily it worked perfect for months until maybe a couple months ago when you did an upgrade.

    After your upgrade – it would stop buffering at 99.02 or 89.65, 87% random high numbers and would not continue.

    After emailing you you said it would be corrected after next update and you updated it – but it still had issues. However on the update you told me to turn ffmeg ON – when i did this it would take 3 minutes to load and was still choppy service but at least i could suffer with the low quality cause at least it worked 25% quality wise.

    Turn the clock forward now and after iop5 update nothing works. NO matter if i have the demuxer or ffmeg on or off – makes no difference – it gets stuck buffering at around 99% and does nothing.

    I just ate dinner which it loaded and was able to finish my dinner and do dished and still nothing.

    This program was the best in the world for iphones at one time to stream video in divx and did it in seconds.

    Then you upgraded the program and it ruined everything – it is now one of the worst in the world to stream only because it cannot.

    U sit threre and wait and wait at buffer level 99% and it just will not move forward.

  313. Steve Says:

    i have tried again everyday and tried every single setting possible. Removing it and re adding it. Everything possible known to man kind and yet it does not work.

    It is buffering to 99.62% and then just stalls for hours. Its like right at the very end of the file it will not go that extra step and buffer the rest.

    I have it on 0 cache, 2 cache, 5 10 tried every setting with demuxer on off, ffmeg on off, every other setting.

    Every single variation and it does the same thing all the time.

    It buffers right to the end over 99% and then stops and does nothing.

    I cannot believe it works for you and for me not! its impossible unless there are known program that block it.

    i have a basic iphone with full memory no installed apps hardly.

    It almost feels like a cache issue of something to do with buffering.

    Can you please continue to find a solution.

    I will message here every single day to update.

  314. Tye Says:

    Just in case you are not aware, TV out with iPhone 4S is not watchable..

    It seems as if the video is only running at about 5 frames per second or less – the audio is fine though. I have experimented with a lot of settings, dual-core decoding on, tried ffmpeg, skip frame, aspect ratio, etc.. all with no success.

    Hope this issue can be solved soon. 🙂

    • olimsoft Says:

      thanks for your information, currently cable tv out’s performance is not ok, apple also suggest to sue airplay, but mirroring feature only supports ipad 2 now.

  315. Steve Says:

    well it worked before and it stopped working on the os upgrade which leads me to believe it has to do with the upgrade and it not being compatible with the new os.

    Th best way is to try it only several i phones – if you can test it on 10 iphones and not just your own.

    Environment. Not sure what you mean – but have tried it at various locations, from home, internet cafe, other wifi hotspots.

    No where i have been in Canada does it work. So is Canada a bad environment?

    See how crazy that sounds? it is not the environment 100% sure on that. Its the program that is incompatible with the OV player.

    If you can tell me every single setting you have while watching the video i can try and copy.

    I mean every single setting from top to bottom I will try it and update.

    Note: When i had this problem before you guys did do special upgrade and it worked again.

    I suggest looking back at what you did then and try and do it again.

    i will continue to update if i have anything different happen every single day until it works.

    i couldn’t get tv out to work at all on my iphone 4 running ios5, i turned tv out on in the setting but nothing happen, the file is running but my tv is not receiving any signals. my phone is not jailed break and i am using genuine component cable.

    • olimsoft Says:

      have you turn to the right channel?

      • ozchilli Says:

        i managed to get it to work now by turn wide screen option on and off in tvout setting of the iphone.

        now that tvout is working, can get the movie/clip (rmvb/mkv/avi/mpeg) to play smoothly, if i double click the phone home button, the audio play smoothly but the picture stayed still not moving. have i got the wrong settings? i tried to turn on skip loop filter and skip frame but still no improvement. Please help.
        hm… i thought i could use my phone to play rmvb movie on my tv without having to buy a media player….

      • ozchilli Says:

        any one else have this problem?

      • olimsoft Says:

        Currently version, tv out performance is not as good as played in the iPhone. as apple has removed the public screen shot api, we will enhance it in the future update.

  318. Steve Says:

    still not working…

    it buffers until 96.88 % and then stalls and does nothing.

    How does one person get their money back for a product that does not work such as oplayer?

    Been at this 400 hours now more or less and it stil does not work and is not able to stream divx like it says it can?

    Please continue to help if you can – i will here everyday and continue posting as many times as i can.

    Again it stalls at 98.66 percent and then will do nothing.

    Something is serious wrong with your program.

    • olimsoft Says:

      Hello Steve, we want to fix your problem too, but you know this depends on the network environment, so no one can make sure works in all the cases, hope you can understand that.

  319. Steve Says:

    What do you mean Network Environment? It worked when i first bought it for 4-5 months with perfection. As Soon as you did upgrades or there were upgrades to the iphone – your product stopped working. There was no change in environment.

    I can be anywhere in the world and this will be an issue – I have tried it in over 50 locations – you trying to tell me its environment?

    The issue 100% is your program – it was not upgraded correctly with the iphone upgrades, or something from the new os is making it not work.

    Why is it everytime iphone upgrades it stops working?

    Using the enviroonment issue is giving up washing the hands clean.

    I will continue to post updates and try it daily for months to come.

    Hi. I’m using an Ipad 2 with my OPlayer Lite and I just suddenly noticed that whenever I play some of the files, it just goes back to the “My Documents’ It’s pretty random actually. Sometimes it work, but most of the time it doesn’t. Pretty much a hassle especially for 3yrd old kid watching her cartoons.
    I’ve already closed the other running task on the background as well as reboot the iPad but, same issue occurs.

    Please help! It’s driving me nuts!

    thanks a lot!

  327. Uli Says:

    since I have installed he Spire hack from chpwn on my iPhone 4 running IOS 5.0.1., OPlayer does no longer start. It is closing with welcome screen after a couple of seconds. All other apps are wrking fine with no problems. Are you planning an update to solve this problem?

  328. Olly Says:

    I have an iPhone 4s. I started using your app on a jailbroken phone and as with any app that has impressive functionality, I purchased.
    I have downloaded a 4Gb M2TS file to my iPhone and the player seems to be able to decode it but stops after about 30 seconds. Any ideas? Does this just need to be converted before transfer. Thanks in advance for your response. Great app. Well worth the $$

    • olimsoft Says:

      you needn’t convert it before transfer, maybe this is a special file issue, have you tried other files the same result? if only this file have issue, is it possible to let us access the file to test it here? by the way you can try to click file detail page to toggle skip frame/loopfilter/dual core to have a try.

    The problem is that I don’t see a ‘download’ option when I select the link. Only open and copy.

    These links are NOT normal links to files but call a cgi script with options

  378. Review: OPlayer The Best Video & Music Media Player For iOS Says:

    […] When first opening the app, you’re pleasantly greeted with a well organized and clean look interface. On your left side you’ll have a docking bar that has several features like playlists, downloads, and even a web browser. The dock always stays to the side when you’re not playing any media, making it extremely quick and easy to navigate around the app no matter what you’re doing in it. The File browser is the main option that lists all of your media. This is where OPlayer really strives to impress, you’ll have your local folder, which is all the media saved directly to the device, your iPod Library, a remote URL section that lets you connect to any website that hosts supported media, and what’s most impressive is that you can even connect directly to a computer on your network using FTP/Samba server. If you’re not sure how to setup a Samba/FTP server, Olimsoft is gracious enough to have a guide on their website, which you can access here. […]

    I have 2 more questions:
    – how can i rename files in OPlayer document without connecting to a PC?
    – last week i paid for remove ads in my OPlayer HD Lite so i can get files from dropbox as written in the note BUT until now the feature doesn’t show up and i still have the same note when i pressed dropbox menu “Note: Dropbox is not supported in OPlayer Lite, You can buy OPlayer full version or remove ads for supporting Dropbox” please help! The cost to remove ad is just like buying full version.

    • olimsoft Says:

      support download srt with in browser, in the my document, click edit, then you can select file to do rename, yes, suggest to buy full version instead of upgrade from lite.

  401. Bolubulu Says:

    The problem is that i did purchase from lite version and you ask me to buy full version instead. Very disappointed with this app. Why dont u just remove that feature from Lite version. Its like u try to trick the users.

    • olimsoft Says:

      Nope, they are the same, only the name shows one is Lite and another is full, if you already bought from the Lite, no need to buy full version.

    I’ve got one question:
    In earlier versions of Oplayer there was a dialogue-option for PLAY or DOWNLOAD files from a URL-Page.
    Today I saw, that the DOWNLOAD-option has disappeared.
    How can I bypass this? Is there a piece of code I could add to the URL, so that Oplayer downloads the file instead of playing it?

    With greetings from the french mountains


    • Mob Says:

      In fact, to add a detail:
      I use a Huawei-Mifi with a SD-Card installed.
      When Oplayer opens the SD-Card file list and I click on one item, it only gives me the option to play the file ( which is buggy ) .
      Before I could choose to download the file and store it locally on Oplayer for better viewing it.
      Could I add something to the URL of the file, in order to download it to Oplayer?

      Thanks for an advice

        Thanks for your quick answer !
        I did open it in the build-in web browser.
        It is there, where in earlier versions I found the two options ( Play & Download ).
        But now only the Play-option appears, when I click on a larger file.
        What do I do wrong?

    Hi my iPod library shows up in the iPad OplayerHDLite app but the files also are located in the iOS default videos app. Is the iPod library duplicated in OplayerHDLite
    App or do the files automatically appear even if not directly transferred from the computer. I’m trying to save space on an almost full iPad

  408. Keshav A. Says:

    I am new to iOS and I bought the full version of OPlayer for my iPod Touch 6th Gen. I have few issues though:

    1. OPlayer does not play any wma files, it actually quits the application.

    2. The player screen when playing a .ogg file is different (more options) while playing a .mp3 player launches a limited player interface form which I cannot go back to the file list without stopping song playback (this does not happen when the .ogg file is launched). How to fix this?

    Thank you.

    Great product, over the years it has been a true lifesaver on iOS!
    One question: On iPad 1 (iOS 5.1.1) with OPlayer HD (2.0.04) I have performance issues with 1280×720 resolution (H.264, AAC) – the video lags while the audio runs normally. What would be your recommended video resolution and codec in order to run movies smoothly with my specs? Thanks for your help here!

    Hi, I have been able to use Oplayer to stream my .mp4 files with .srt of same names from my NAS. Was able to play the video and audio together with subtitle, but recently for the same files, the subtitle just do not appear even if I manually select the .srt and encoding from CC button in the OPlayer interface (I see it is by default disabled under subtitle track). The only change happens recently is upgrade to iOS 10.3.1, but I’m not sure if that is related. Appreciate your advice please.

  422. -Grace- Says:

    Hi, I found the difference. It is working now after I rename the files to be all in english. Previously the filenames contain some Korean characters. But why so if I may understand more? It was fine even there were Korean characters in the filename in the past.

  423. Norman Says:


    I have Oplayer Lite on my iPhone 7 and clicked to remove ads, but I did not realise that it downloaded the full Oplayer version (instead of an in app upgrade)

    Now i have my video files on the Oplayer Lite but not on the Oplayer.

    I am travelling currently and won’t have access to my PC for the next week. I could borrow my friend’s laptop (has iTunes). I tried the WiFi Transfer option but the browser is unable to reach the iPhone (possibly the hotel WiFi)

    Is there a way to transfer the files from Oplayer Lite to Oplayer over iTunes?

    Or is there any other way for me to do so?
