GPlayer FAQ

with 315 comments

Contact us if you have any other questions or suggestions!

  • 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.

If your IOS version is 4.0 or later, you can use FTP client to upload whole folders directly to GPlayer, with WINDOWS, you can use windows explorer to do this, with MAC, you can use build-in ftp client or cyberduck to do this. Pay attention to your FTP client’s encoding method, you can change server’s encoding method in the settings page of GPlayer.

  • 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.

  • HD MKV movies don’t play smoothly?

Currently, only iPad 2 supports 720p MKV file[with multithread enabled, maybe skip loopfilter needed], 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.

  • Why the video and audio 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?

It supports TV-out in iPhone4, iPod Touch4, iPhone4s and iPad 1/2.

  • Does GPlayer support AirPlay? [APPLE TV needed]

Yes, but in the IOS4.x, only native video formats[MP4/MOV/M4V] can be AirPlayed to APPLE TV [hardware decoding method]
, from IOS5.0, it supports AirPlay Mirroring, any file format can be AirPlayed to your TV through APPLE TV.

  • Why some AVI files crash on my iPad2 or iPhone4s?

Some AVI file swill crash on iPad2 and iPhone4s, just turn off Multiple Threads in the settings page for these crash files.


GPlayer has used FFmpeg for video/audio decoding.

FFmpeg is licensed under the GNU Lesser General Public License (LGPL) version 2.1 or later. However, FFmpeg incorporates several optional parts and optimizations that are covered by the GNU General Public License (GPL) version 2 or later. If those parts get used the GPL applies to all of FFmpeg.

1.  Download and install the iPhone SDK 3.1.
2.  Get the latest gas-preprocessor and install it in /usr/local/bin
    or some other directory in your $PATH.
3.  Get the latest FFmpeg from SVN (I have used FFmpeg Revision SVN-r21163.).
4.  Configure FFmpeg with one of the following commands.  These give a
    clean build with a default installation of iPhone SDK 3.1 on OSX Leopard.
    Other versions may vary.
4a. For iPhone 3GS or iPod Touch 3G 32GB/64GB, use this command:
    ./configure --cc=/Developer/Platforms/iPhoneOS.platform/Developer/usr/bin/arm-apple-darwin9-gcc-4.2.1 --as=' /Developer/Platforms/iPhoneOS.platform/Developer/usr/bin/arm-apple-darwin9-gcc-4.2.1' --sysroot=/Developer/Platforms/iPhoneOS.platform/Developer/SDKs/iPhoneOS3.1.sdk --enable-cross-compile --target-os=darwin --arch=arm --cpu=cortex-a8 --enable-pic
4b. For other iPhone or iPod Touch models, use this command:
    ./configure --cc=/Developer/Platforms/iPhoneOS.platform/Developer/usr/bin/arm-apple-darwin9-gcc-4.2.1 --as=' /Developer/Platforms/iPhoneOS.platform/Developer/usr/bin/arm-apple-darwin9-gcc-4.2.1' --sysroot=/Developer/Platforms/iPhoneOS.platform/Developer/SDKs/iPhoneOS3.1.sdk --enable-cross-compile --target-os=darwin --arch=arm --cpu=arm1176jzf-s
5.  Run make.

      • how to put subtitles ? i need it , but i play song or movies dint see subtitles.


        February 7, 2013 at 4:16 pm

        • Example:abc.avi with under the same folder.


          February 18, 2013 at 2:06 am

          • I also cannot load subtitles, the .avi and .sub files have the same name, but there is no option to load subtitles in the information window.
            Is the sub file not supported?


            March 23, 2013 at 3:14 pm

            • example:abc.avi with abc.sub in the same folder

  2. Just purchased and installed app (6/8/2011) to be able to view .wmv files attached to e-mails. Once installed, when I click on the movie attachment it provides a menu of apps to open the attachment from which i select Gplayer. However, instead of opening or playing the movie it sends me to a screen that says i have no movies in my library and i need to connect to iTunes. How do I get the app to play movie attachments in Mail?

  3. This suggestion worked just fine to play the video attachment but the video attached to my e-mail did not get transferred to my GPlayer library. Is that a further enhancement needed to the software or is there an option that I should select to save the video attachment from iPad Mail app?

    Another enhancement is suggested:

    When downloading videos through iTunes from tken with my camera, they initially do not show in the GPlayer library as a thumbnail – only the GPlayer icon shows on each video. I had to open each video and play it and then stop it in order to replace the GPlayer icon with a frame from the video. When syncing videos between iTunes and the GPlayer app on my iPad, can you automatically select a frame from the video to display in the Gplayer library?

    Anthony Vodraska

    June 9, 2011 at 7:13 pm

    • Next update, you can see files under Inbox folder in GPlayer.

      and about your second suggestion: currently we designed to show the last stopped frame.


      June 12, 2011 at 1:18 pm

  4. Just bought this app for my ipad2, seems to work alright. Only really tested AVI and MPG atm, but seems to play them fine.

    Not sure if it’s a bug though, but when opening a video from an external source (such as through a file manager app (im using ‘awesome files’ atm), G player loads up but seems to hang and not play. However if u hit ‘done’ and go back to the main screen, and select that video again, it plays fine without problems.

    Definitely keen to try out some 720p MKV files though!

      July 3, 2011 at 1:31 pm

  5. When I use Gplayer on my iPad, the iPad reboots itself after 1 minute into the video. Doesn’t happen with any other app. Could you fix this bug or does anyone have any idea what might be wrong? My files are flv format. Thank you.


    July 12, 2011 at 2:35 am

    • Have you tried any other files? if it is the special file caused the issue, can you post this file to us?


      July 14, 2011 at 3:24 am

  6. can you add file manager function to it? such as rename, folder , create folder and etc… and please support the link folder, (honestly i paid this app because it’s good, i also leaved comment on itunes, but my personal jailbreaked my ipad2 because i need the USB adapter function in order to use external hard driver, so if i could link the external hard driver to \Documents\harddriver\, that could help alot) thx again~!


    July 19, 2011 at 4:11 pm

    • Thanks for your suggestions, we will consider it in the future update, we are currently focus on performance enhancement. 🙂


      July 20, 2011 at 4:05 am

  7. I am currently having problems listening .wma files on the websites. It crash down every time after playing several minutes after, although not at same place. Is there any fixing strategy?


    July 26, 2011 at 2:14 am

    • Can you share us the link? then we can test it here?


      July 26, 2011 at 3:37 am

  9. How can I transfer my video/movie to my computer when I had download the video from my iPhone?

    August 8, 2011 at 5:26 pm

    • Just as the steps you have transferred the movies to iPhone, the last step, click the save to button.


      August 19, 2011 at 8:30 am

  10. Diese App zählt ja zu den eher teureren im AppStore und ich habe sie blind, da ohne Bewertung, gekauft. Aber der Kauf hat sich gelohnt!!!

    Mit dieser App kann ich endlich vom iPhone die Video-Streams ansehen, die ich im Netzwerk von einer Webcam über die Windows Media Dienste (asf, mms, rtsp) eines SBS 2003 bereitstelle.

    Und sogar von unterwegs kann ich über VPN mit dieser App die Streams der Webcam im Office empfangen!

    – Videos auch im Querformat abspielen bei Drehung des iPhones
    – direkte Eingabe von Streamadressen

    Danke und bitte pflegt diese App weiter!!


    August 18, 2011 at 8:29 pm

    • Thanks for your suggestion.
      – Supports landscape in iPhone, you need to close your iPhone’s lock function, double click home button, and scroll to top-left, and click the lock/unlock button
      – Currently for the neat UI, we have no this option, you can input URL from safari app.

  11. Hi,

    Recently installed GPlayer in iPad 1.

    It’s realy great to have the ability to copy films and subtitles in .srt format to watch localy.

    After watching those movies I want to delete them but I can´t delete the subtitles!
    Only movies shows for deletion in GPlayer’s menu!

    How can I delete the srt files?

    best regards,


    August 20, 2011 at 1:08 pm

    • Next update will support file management, then you can delete subtitle one by one.


      August 20, 2011 at 1:23 pm

      • In the meantime is there another way to get rid of those .srt?


        August 20, 2011 at 2:22 pm

        • You can select disable option in the playing window.


          August 23, 2011 at 2:08 am

  12. This app is very good, even to Play 1080p are bit suffer. Ive download any movie player but somehow it difficult to transfer movie info iPad. Playing 1080p framerate are dropped to about 15 – 20 fps and also audio are not snyc well but the video files are considered watchable.

    My suggestion are
    1. Can manage files on iPad (create folder, moving files, rename etc)
    2. Improvement on GUI, which can see files on list, icon, or thumbnail
    3. Add FPS viewer while Play movies and cpu or memory usage while Play
    4. Fix file size information not in MB but in GB if file size over 1 gb or 10 gb
    5. Details on the files like codec, sound, resolution, time, type of files etc
    6. If considereable revamp the GUI skin like standalone mediaplayer (ex : XBMC, PlayOn, etc)

    I hope that my suggestion for improving the apps are consider for the next update


    August 23, 2011 at 11:51 am

    • Thanks for ur suggestion, we will consider them in the future update.


      August 24, 2011 at 1:46 am

  13. hi,找到这个APP时非常高兴,因为可以format RMVB,不过看的时候很lagging,可以改进吗?


    September 6, 2011 at 6:53 am

    • Thanks for your information, we will try to enhance the performance.


      September 7, 2011 at 2:43 am

  14. Since I installed the latest version, the vplayer is not smoothe anymore. It became laggy. Any sugestion?

    I M Fontana

    September 13, 2011 at 5:28 pm

    • Make sure you have multiple thread enabled for iPad2.
      and disable skip frame/loopfilter if the movie resolution is not HD movie.


      September 14, 2011 at 3:30 am

  15. First of all your app is great. It’s the first player that can handle all kinds of subs.

    But .. there’s one little issue:
    The player can’t display multiple / parallel subtitles (for example descriptions during normal text) properly.
    Always when multiple / parallel subtitles appear, one track overlaps the other and it flickers.
    It doesn’t happen many times but when it happens it’s annoying and you can barely read the text.
    By the way I’m talking about ass subs .. maybe it’s a help if I mention this

    I hope there’s a way to fix that, it would be great

    Thanks for your app and keep up the good work!!


    September 13, 2011 at 9:41 pm

    • Have you tried to zoom in/out the subtitle by two fingers?


      September 14, 2011 at 3:28 am

      • Yeah, it’s the same problem.
        The point is that both subtitle tracks acting like one ..
        so if I resize the main subtitle track, the other one automatically does the same.
        Or if I change the position of the main track, the other one follows it.
        They are overlapped and bound together


        September 14, 2011 at 11:56 am

        • Yep, we defined to remember these adjustment for other files.


          September 15, 2011 at 2:32 am

  16. So .. is it possible to change/correct that or do I have to live with that? =D


    September 15, 2011 at 1:19 pm

    • I think It is good for most cases, and also you can change it dynamically.


      September 16, 2011 at 2:57 am

  17. Hello, i like this app very much. The volume of the iPhone 4 is not very loud. Is it possible to maximum the volume. So that it can be louder. Like the app Goodplayer. ((in the settings it is possible there)). Thank you very much.


    October 18, 2011 at 5:24 pm

    • Thanks for your suggestion, we will consider it in the future update.


      October 20, 2011 at 3:24 am

  18. How do i add the subtitles downloaded to the movies in GPlayer….


    October 19, 2011 at 11:03 pm

  19. JUST rename to the name as the movie with different suffix.
    eg abc.avi with

    maybe you need to choose correctly encoding method of your subtitle file in the playing window with information selector.


    October 20, 2011 at 3:25 am

  20. how to make subtitle work?
    i do check and confirm the file name of my mkv and ass is same, but there is subtitle when playing the mkv file, is there any setting need to do ?

  22. Whenever i am watching a .mkv file with hardsub in it, the player is only showing the first row of the subtitle, may i know how to address this issue? I am using ipad2 to watch.

    Anyway, it’s a very awesome app especially for ipad users. Thanks a lot!

  24. So, how does the new Wi-Fi upload feature work?


    October 28, 2011 at 10:14 pm

    • You need to add a movie to GPlayer by iTunes, then it will comes out, we designed this to let user to learn how to use USB sync firstly, seems confused others, we will enhance it in later release.


      October 31, 2011 at 4:15 am

  25. Great app. But is there any possibility to password-protect the app at the start?


    October 30, 2011 at 4:11 pm

  26. 建议:将横屏、竖屏锁定按键改为横屏、竖屏转换按键。


    November 1, 2011 at 1:03 am

    • 谢谢你的建议, 我们会考虑加入默认锁屏功能的。


      November 8, 2011 at 4:14 am

  27. Love gplayer. I use it every day.

    I would very much like to adjust the subtitle text size. Right now the text is so big it disturbs the movie Im watching, and the lines are too long so I can not see what they are saying. It just shows the start of the sentence.

    I would like to be able to adjust the volume a bit. I usually use earplugs and the lowest volume possible is too loud.

    Also, if gplayer would remember that I checked the do-not-rotate-option, that would be great. Or a settingspanel where I could set always-play-in-landscape-mode. Maybe a landspace-left or landscape-right option.

    November 3, 2011 at 10:07 pm

    • Just zoom in/out the subtitle by two fingers to make it fit.


      November 8, 2011 at 4:15 am

  28. That really good player! But I have one problem: my russian subtitles not correct working.(
    I don’t know what I need to do..


    November 7, 2011 at 8:16 am

    • Toni

      November 7, 2011 at 8:42 am

    • Just choose correctly encoding method in the playing window with information selector.


      November 8, 2011 at 4:16 am

      • I used any encoding method, but it’s not correct worked.


        November 8, 2011 at 5:51 am

        • I don’t know about russian, so can’t make sure about it, but I have tested Cyrillic (Windows-1251) is ok for your file.


          November 9, 2011 at 3:02 am

  29. Thx! Thx so much!! The best player for iPad!


    November 9, 2011 at 5:33 am

  30. Big thanks for the wlan/ftp support

    But my issue is still not solved. So I will try it once again ..
    This time with some files you can personally look at
    My issue is the display of multiple/parallel subs (overlapped and flickering)

    Here are the files (save as .. for download) :

    subs.ass :

    video.mkv + subs.ass :

    Please take a look at the first minutes until ~2:20
    Especially at minutes 1:55-1:59 and 2:14-2:20
    There’s the conflict I’m talking about

    Thank you for your effort


    November 9, 2011 at 10:15 pm

    • Have you tried to zoom the subtitle by two fingers? still not works?


      November 10, 2011 at 4:16 am

      • Yes, I tried everything:
        – zoom to min and max
        – move to another position on the screen
        It’s still mixed/overlapped and flickering.

        Well, maybe it’s to complex to handle/implement such a matter.
        Other popular video player apps don’t even display those sub passages.

        Nonetheless your player app is (one of) the best and it’s enjoyable to use it.
        As for my issue maybe you can figure out something .. please let me know


        November 10, 2011 at 10:15 am

        • We will download your file and check it here for sure 🙂


          November 11, 2011 at 6:18 am

  31. why do i see a blue stripe on top of the movie after ugrading to ver ?


    November 19, 2011 at 5:35 am

    • That is because the lite version has ads in the top of the movie.


      November 21, 2011 at 7:23 am

    • You can upgrade to full version to avoid the ads.


      November 21, 2011 at 7:24 am

  32. First of all I must say I love your app. My best iPhone player so far, gesture for ff and rw are genius, no idea why Apple hasn’t used it so far.

    Just one hing that concerns me – in iTunes I can’t see the files already downloaded into GPlayer. You wrote that latest update made it possible to backup with iTunes and it is now disabled by default.
    So my question is – can’t I just see the files in iTunes but without backup? I had it like this in Oplayer I guess.



    November 29, 2011 at 6:53 am

    • If disable backup, we will store files under cache folder, while iTunes just show files under Document, that’s why you can’t see them in iTunes when you disable backup.


      November 30, 2011 at 3:36 am

  33. My iPhone 4S laggin on rmvb format on tv out and mp4 to how i can put it run smooth ?


    December 13, 2011 at 2:16 am

    • Currently tv out performance is not good, we are trying to fix it.


      December 13, 2011 at 3:56 am

  34. Hi GPlayer developers! Firstly I have to thank you for this (mostly) amazing video player, keep doing your great work!

    Now on to the issue which for me and probably many others is a real deal breaker: Overlapping and flickering subtitles. It’s been mentioned here before twice, but from what I can tell you haven’t really acknowledged it. I put together a video with a few samples of the issue so you can really see the problem for yourselfs.

    I know this isn’t an unfixable problem because GoodPlayer on iPad has a decent implementation of ssa/ass subtitles. Anyways, I hope this short message brought this problem a little bit more to your attention and I’m definetly certain you can fix this sooner or later!


    December 22, 2011 at 4:45 pm

    • Yeah, that’s it .. it’s a problem with almost every player app
      Also I miss the original fonts .. but that’s too much to expect I guess and probably one limit of a mobile device

      So after struggling with this and that I found a way to enjoy Animes on the iPad to the fullest
      What I do is to encode and hardsub my videos
      At first the big problem was the long encoding time, but after some research and experiments I found a way to encode 8-bit-720p-24-minute-videos in 5-10 minutes (in my case in 7 minutes with a MacBook Pro 2,26 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo 8GB RAM) into a 480p-Apple-friendly H.264 mp4 video

      I still use the GPlayer and watch my videos with the hardware decoding smooth and energy-saving

      Those who are interested can download this little tutorial:

      Ah .. and sorry for the off-topic


      December 22, 2011 at 9:22 pm

      • Wow. It actually works quiet well your tip, thanks. Maybe I’ll start using this technique as well. Still it’s sad that no video player can get this right. 😦


        December 23, 2011 at 2:09 pm

        • Yeah, would be more pleasant just to load the files on the device and watch them directly


          December 23, 2011 at 2:16 pm

  35. Hi.
    Well, just want to let you know that I tried to upgrade to full version (upgrade button within GPlayer app) but had received a message saying it failed to upgrade. After that I was charged $0.99 for the app… What can we do about it?


    December 26, 2011 at 3:23 am

    • I don’t know about that, maybe an error from app store? if you don’t see ads in the playing window, then you have upgrade successfully.


      December 26, 2011 at 4:07 am

      • I’ve seen other applications have a “restore purchases” feature, that might be worth looking into.

  36. I couldn’t play .idx subtitles, overall i have to say this apps was really great. 4,5 stars


    December 27, 2011 at 10:12 pm

    • you need sub file but not idx file. GPlayer supports sub file well.


      December 28, 2011 at 3:07 am

  37. Love the app! On my iPad 2, the movies that i have in the app will randomly delete! And when i click the “Open In…” in another app, it doesnt work, to play the file in GPlayer! Please help!

  38. I forget my password for my GPlayer app. Is there anyway I can disable the password?


    January 22, 2012 at 2:31 am

  39. How can I open a .srt (subtitle) attachment in GPlayer (from Mail for example)? The GPlayer isn’t listed after the long press on the .srt attachment. Thanks!


    January 26, 2012 at 12:31 pm

    • thanks for your information, we will add it in the next update.

  40. Hello. I can’t add files via wifi. I use the address on my web browser, I name a folder, but how add the files to this folder? I click on the folder’s name and nothing happens. THere are three tabs only:Up one level, reload and creat folder. Please note I have a 3GS iPhone. Thanks.

  41. Hi!
    Gplayer: der beste Player im App Store! great Work!
    aber?: wie kann ich meine Files in einen Ordner verschieben?

    Vielen Dank.


    March 1, 2012 at 9:06 pm

    • in the file list, click edit, then select files to cut, and then come to other folder to do paste.


      March 2, 2012 at 3:30 am

  42. Works great! I’d love if (maybe they are already) subtitles were supported with streaming via gplayer: protocol handler.

    The only other problem (not with GPlayer) I’ve seen with other players is the stream buffer is too small;

    But so far 5/5 rating is easy to say!
    I is also good value.


    March 2, 2012 at 7:17 am

  43. Hm.. it’s possible the stream buffer might be small; I’m still testing the app.


    March 2, 2012 at 7:18 am

  44. I now remember the original problem, the application only shows settings and only steams (via gplayer:) if there is at least one file. It crashes otherwise.

    I’d love it to be able to quit and revert back to the original application (Safari in my case) after streaming is done.


    March 2, 2012 at 7:22 am

    • Thanks steven, we may consider to add this function in the future update.

  46. Hello!
    my problem is: i uploaded 1 vid (1GB) with itunes, but after that i cannot see the vid in itunes or either in Gplayer, but it takes 1GB away and i cannot delete the vid, what should i do?

    thx anyway


    March 3, 2012 at 10:49 pm

    • Enable backup in the settings page, then you can see files in iTunes, also you can click edit in the app, and manage files in the GPlayer.


      March 5, 2012 at 5:49 am

  47. Wasn’t there a proceeding bar that shows what percentage of a file i’ve got when uploading over wifi? Now, I can’t see any sign when to stop wifi uploading.

    I need to know when to watch the result. If downloading is stopped before finishing, it has to be started all over again. This is pretty inconvenient, you know.


    March 6, 2012 at 2:30 am

    • which web browser were you using, you can try Chrome or Safari or IE, all have percentage.


      March 6, 2012 at 9:46 am

  48. Hi, GPlayer is awesome!
    I do however have one issue – it seems that whenever I connect my iPod and transfer purchases, the movies I have in GPlayer are removed.

    I use solely WiFi for adding media files through the web browser.

    Is this a known issue?


    March 12, 2012 at 7:13 pm

    • Enable backup in the settings page of GPlayer will fix this.

  50. I purchased this product in the frame of mind that I can play the video clips and replay from where ever I want. But I am not able to play from where ever I want. when I do that it’s going back to starting point. How to over come this problem. For example I have a 30mins video file, I want to play the last 5mins. Which I can do it With this application I need to play from begins and waste 30mis. If I have 2hours file then what do I need to watch the whole 2 hours video again. Please advice on the fix. This is the 2nd time I am posting this message. But so far no reaponse. Thanks Venkat


    March 21, 2012 at 3:05 am

    • We haven’t met this issue, can you share us the issued file?


      March 21, 2012 at 3:49 am

    • I, too, had this problem with a few video files. I can’t recall the particular formats but for whatever reason it seemed to be related to how the videos were encoded. I just re-encoded (transcoded) them into different formats using Handbrake and reloaded the transcoded videos. Now they work as expected.


      April 14, 2012 at 3:31 pm

  51. Hi, I have a few videos in MP4 format with accompanied subtitle files in ASS format. I can get the subtitle to show when I use “Software Decoding” by pressing on the subtitle icon in the play menu. However, when I use “Hardware Decoding,” I do not get this icon anymore.

    How do I get subtitle to show up when using “Hardware Decoding?”


    March 27, 2012 at 8:42 pm

    • Yep, that only works when software decoding, hardware decoding is quicktime from apple, we can’t modify the function of it.


      March 28, 2012 at 3:33 am

  52. Hi again,

    I have the new IPAD (2012), and almost all of my 720p mkvs show artifacts (discolored clusters of pixels) when played. I did not have this issue before with my IPAD 2.

    One file, for example: “[Elysium]Lucky.Star.EP01(BD.720p.AAC.DA)[0BB96AD8].mkv.” The artifacts can be seen within 5 minutes of the episode.

    Do you know of any compatibility problems between your software, GPLAYER, and the new IPAD?


    March 30, 2012 at 7:09 pm

  53. I regress. I tried the file again on my IPAD 2, and the artifacts showed up as well. Though, playing on the desktop did not produce the artifacts.


    March 31, 2012 at 6:37 pm

    • Thanks for your file, we will download it and check it here.


      April 3, 2012 at 4:50 am

  54. GPlayer has been indispensable with old family videos and movies!

    A couple parts of GPlayer could use improvements (I use the first iPad):

    (1) Full screen password entry. Entering a password is a popup window that only partially covers the files & folders; you can still partially see beneath the password box.

    (2) Improved password setting. There’s no confirmation (double-entry) of the password when you enter a new one. If I accidentally mistype the password, I won’t know it’s incorrect until I open GPlayer, and I’d be required to uninstall and reinstall the app (along with the time-consuming reloading of dozens & dozens of videos).

    (3) More sensitive accelerometer detection. At times I would open and close applications all in landscape mode, and then open GPlayer. For some reason it will not detect the orientation of the iPad and open in portrait mode instead. Further, there’s sometimes a noticeable delay in GPlayer recognizing the correct orientation to the point that I would have to pick it up and rotate the iPad in every direction.


    April 14, 2012 at 3:54 pm

  55. To add one further comment to above:

    (4) Built-in web browser; or an optimized, stripped down version strictly for video playback. It’d make for a seamless experience watching movies on websites and being able to download them by pressing & holding on the video.


    April 14, 2012 at 3:59 pm

    • Thanks for your suggestion, we may consider them in the future update.


      April 16, 2012 at 3:40 am

  56. Hi, tried to stream using gplayer on my ipad 1 os 5.1 but it just crashes 100% of the time but my mum’s ipad 2 running ios 4.x is running it fine… Any ideas? Have reboot and reinstalled gplayer on my ipad, thanks


    April 16, 2012 at 4:40 pm

  57. Using Itunes 10 with GPlayer installed on itouch 4, I still do not see File Sharing section which according to apple support means – ” your iOS device does not have any apps that support File Sharing”.
    But obviously GPlayer has to support File sharing. Is this a limitation of the free version? I just want to play AVI files. I am happy to buy this if I know it will work on the itouch. thanks.


    April 19, 2012 at 11:58 pm

    • I found the problem. No wonder no one else has this problem. They can read.


      April 20, 2012 at 12:01 am

    • GPlayer should supports file sharing, update your iTunes to 10.1 or above.


      April 20, 2012 at 4:14 am

  58. Today I encountered an issue that made me lose all of my files iPad 1 with iOS 5.1.

    Here’s what I did:

    Created a folder.
    Put several .AVI files inside this folder.
    Launched a video, but realized I launched the wrong one and immediately clicked OK, before any picture appeared on the screen.
    Went back to the files list but the folder was GONE, as were all the files that were inside.

    I tried to kill the app from the multitask bar and relaunch it, but they weren’t there.
    After that I tried rebooting the iPad, and, while it was rebooting, the “installing bar” showed up on the screen (the same one that appears after you restore a backup or is updating the firmware on the iPad).

  59. hey when’s the retina version coming out? looking forward to doing 1080p on Gplayer, got a 64Gb just for that. Keep up the good work!

  60. I accidentally rename a video file in iPad without its extension and file is no longer visible. How do I retrieve the file? I’m sure it is still in my iPad as the file occupied the total storage capacity.


    April 28, 2012 at 9:32 am

    • Enable backup in the settings page of GPlayer, then do the rename in the iTunes.

  61. how to load the sub >? or need the video add in the sub ?

    Sean Lee

    May 5, 2012 at 6:02 pm

    • Just put the external subtitle file with in the same folder as the video file, with the same name, different suffix,GPlayer will auto pick it up.


      May 7, 2012 at 2:06 am

  62. I love the APP but I’m not going to be able to store any video files since my iPad always run short of the storage. Hope you will support video-streaming from wifi-disks like Kingston WI-DRIVE, since their APP only supports what the iOS allows us to decode.


    May 11, 2012 at 11:34 pm

    • We will consider that in the future update.


      May 23, 2012 at 3:58 am

      • I found this old post… Is Wi-drive supported? I tried with no joy…


        July 24, 2014 at 1:45 pm

  63. I love this app. Use it every day. The only problem I seem to run into is stylized subtitles, or more specifically when there’s supposed to be more than one subtitle on the screen. For example, there’s supposed to be subtitles at the top of the screen for a radio announcement in the background, and the main dialogue at the bottom. In Gplayer, the two “fight” each other at the top of the screen and you end up seeing the subtitles flickering back and forth or sometimes one will overcome the other causing you to miss sequences of dialog (and end up reading the background dialog instead which is barely audible anyway). Is there plans to fix this in the near future?

  64. Hmm, great app and great speed. However , could I recommend that you add a shuffle option for the music files as I generally use this app to play my flac files and it would be nice to have a shuffle option. Thanks


    May 23, 2012 at 3:08 pm

    • Yep, we may consider it in the next update 🙂

  66. I got a problem when I imported some files from dropbox and usb disk app.
    They would crash all the times. The screen is stopped and none of the buttons are worked.
    Is this only my problem or Gplayer did not support this function? Thanks.


    May 26, 2012 at 6:22 pm

    • Can you share us the file that crashed GPlayer?


      May 28, 2012 at 3:51 am

    May 28, 2012 at 8:23 am

  68. I have loaded multiple videos onto my iPhone 4S running ios 5.1.1 and am having trouble using Air Play with .AVI files. I have no problems with .MP4 files. the problem i am having, I am only getting audio on my projector via the Apple TV and the video stays on my device. I have tried multiple settings in GPlayer, but nothing works for the .AVI files… only the .MP4 files seems to Air Play.

    Any ideas?


    May 29, 2012 at 2:58 pm

    • When i say “the video stays on my device”, i mean that the actual display of the movie appears on my device and only sound on the Apple TV.


      May 29, 2012 at 3:00 pm

      • I too have the same experience – Apple TV 2nd gen (720p) and iPad2. A friend has Apple TV 3rd gen (1080p) and iPad2, also gets the same result. Sound but no picture.


        June 5, 2012 at 4:46 am

  69. When I try to stream gplayer to my Apple tv (mainly .avi with .srt subtitels), I only get the sound of the movie on my Apple tv (nothing to see)… Is there any solution for this problem???


    June 5, 2012 at 7:21 am

    • You can only use AirPlay mirroring feature for non native media formats.


      June 6, 2012 at 3:36 am

      • Please explain what native media formats and non native media formats are…… .mp4 = non native? .avi = native? Because I can AirPlay .mp4 files but not .avi.


        June 6, 2012 at 4:15 am

  70. Love the app. Plays all the movies I’ve tried with it. Sometimes though my library content is completely flushed. I’m not sure what does it. First time it happened I filled my iPad so fair enough (maybe) but most recently I had at least 5GB free but the vids were flushed again. Any clues? I have a 3rd gen iPad.


    June 13, 2012 at 1:44 pm

    • Make sure you have backup in the settings page of GPlayer enabled, otherwise, apple will remove your data when disk is in low capacity.


      June 14, 2012 at 2:36 am

  71. How can I enable subtitle using .srt file? Thanks.


    July 15, 2012 at 1:18 pm

    • with abc.avi under the same folder, and choose correctly encoding method in the playing window with “information” button.


      July 17, 2012 at 8:47 am

      • I already placed abc.mp4 with in the same folder but I still cannot load the subtitle.
        When I tab the mp4 file, I only saw two choices: hardware decoding and software decoding.
        I want to watch hd movie (1080p) and I thought I should choose hardware decoding right?
        FYI, I cannot see “information” button when I’m playing the movie.


        July 17, 2012 at 9:03 am

        • Hardware decoding not supports external subtitle now.


          July 17, 2012 at 9:22 am

    I’ve already add video and .srt file.
    Sub choice appears in the options, but I can’t see them.

But the problem is that it dosen’t work when i slide leftward- I mean if i slide leftward, the movie which is playing is supposed to be skipped 5 seconds back as i set, right? But it doesn’t work~ did i do somthing wrong? Or the movie which is uploaded through wifi upload isn’t controled by the setting i made??


    August 29, 2012 at 6:06 pm

    • the settings page controls the movies, is that because the movie you have uploaded isn’t complete?
      can you share us the movie not works?


      August 30, 2012 at 2:52 am

      • Thanks for replying ! I’ll try one more time with another file so that i’m sure whether the movie i uploaded isn’t working properly.


        August 30, 2012 at 6:03 pm

  75. Hi GPlayer staff!
    I absolutely love this app, best video player out there.
    I’ve never had any problems, however, since the update there have been glitches where videos restart every time I close the app rather than playing from where I left off.
    Although it’s not such a huge problem, it does however slightly deteriorate the experience.
    Prior to the update it had been working fine, so just a heads up.

    Even with this minor issue, it’s still a brilliant app.


    September 24, 2012 at 12:47 pm

    • can i know your ios version?


      September 25, 2012 at 2:42 am

    • Yeah I’ve seen the same thing happening too. Switch to a different app (reply to a text, etc) and when I come back to Gplayer it’s at the main menu and didn’t save the position of the video. I’m on iOS6 but I don’t remember if this was happening on iOS5.


      September 25, 2012 at 3:21 am

      • thanks for your information, we will check it.

  76. 1. how do i change the view mode into details/list? thumbnails view good, but i prefer details/list view.

    2. when transfer video files using itunes, i cannot add video files into the a folder? only wifi webpage transfer can do it?

    3. i already move the subtitle position to top in current video, when i play next video, subtitle set back to default position. can gplayer memories the subtitle position?

    4. how to adjust the font size become smaller/bigger? some time i watch video in portrait mode, and some of video include two line of subtitle, chinese and japanese.

    5. is that any quick key to delete the single file? i transfer a lot of video files into ipad, after watching video, i will directly delete the files.


    September 28, 2012 at 1:49 am

    • 1)Only supports thumbnail view now.
      2)Yep, that is limited by iTunes app.
      3)Good suggestion, we may consider it.
      4)use two fingers to do zoom in/out
      5)currently only supported to delete files by clicking edit, then select files to delete.


      September 28, 2012 at 2:10 am

    • i already move the subtitle position to top in current video..hoje did you that? I tried, but i can’t move subtitles

      • Dear gplayer staff,
        I found the solution already… It appears after updating itunes, i need turn on and turn off the backup to itunes button in my iphone so that it won’t backup the content again.
        Otherwise, even if the button previously set not to backup to itunes, it will still backup the content to itunes ( after updating itunes to the last version)

        Thx for your support.

    Can you fix it or reply or should i ask for a refund?

        November 17, 2012 at 8:14 am

  82. Dear Developer,

    Please consider adding landscape orientation lock to your app.

    When I watch videos in bed, the screen rotates to
    portrait-orientation, which makes the app useless for me.

    Apple’s own video player locks videos in landscape mode automatically.
    Can you please add this feature as an option?

    Thank-you for reading.

    • in the bottom control panel, first icon is lock the screen orientation, right?


      October 13, 2012 at 6:33 am

  83. gplayer plays almost everything awesomly…but hi10p videos are still rather laggy on it. I understand that there is only software decoding for it ..but AV player manages to do it without lag though!

    • have you tried to enable multiple thread in the settings page? and skip loopfilter?


      October 15, 2012 at 5:20 am

  84. Yes, I just noticed that the icon to the right of the control pane – during playback – does lock the orientation! Silly me …

    Unfortunately, this only works when GPlayer is not using hardware-decoding (which is any non h264-mp4 file on my ipod). When GPlayer encounters an h264-mp4 file it uses the existing iOS functions for playback – in these cases, there is no orientation-lock icon, nor is there an option to do so in the config panes. I need this as an option.

    Thanks for the help, however!


    October 14, 2012 at 11:03 pm

    • Default hardware decoding has no this interface to lock the screen.


      October 15, 2012 at 5:23 am

      • I can live without that fine. But can you not add an option to enable this in the config panels?

        When GPlayer uses hardware-decoding playback, I simply want it to behave like Apple’s VideoPlayer – and lock the screen to landscape-orientation (or provide an option to do so).

        Thank-you for reading.


        October 15, 2012 at 12:54 pm

  85. Just bought the app, but it is useless to me, because my 3 and 4 year old kids cannot read. VLC would show a random frame from the movie. Can you please make an option for this?


    October 15, 2012 at 12:12 am

    • If you viewed the movie, we will have thumbnails to show the stopped image, and if you haven’t viewed the movie, there will be default video thumbnails.


      October 15, 2012 at 5:21 am

      • Is it possible to have the same feature as VLC had? They had a random frame or something like that.


        October 15, 2012 at 11:01 am

        • GPlayer will use the last frame of the movie you watched as a thumbnail. However, this is only for videos that it itself will play e.g. XVID or other formats.

          On h264-mp4 files, GPlayer generally just passes these on to Apple’s hardware playback; as such, GPlayer isn’t normally playing these files itself. These type of files do not generate a thumbnail in GPlayers interface.

          It would be desirable if GPlayer could fetch a thumbnail from mp4 files, but at the moment it doesn’t. There is no real technical reason why it can’t be implemented, but the programmers have not yet added this feature. Just as they have not added orientation-lock for mp4 files.

          Hopefully both features – and more – will be forthcoming.

  86. Hi I added a windows media center tv recording (.wtv) file on Gplayer by itunes and the video does not show in the list on my iphone5 (I guess it doesnt support the file type). now I can’t delete the file since I can’t see it on the gplayer playlist. How can I delete the video?


    October 15, 2012 at 5:24 am

    • oops I figured it out. you simply press “delete” on the file in itunes. will there be support for .wtv files?

      iphone 5 user

      October 15, 2012 at 8:00 am

      • should support already, just add .avi suffix in the file name


        October 16, 2012 at 2:43 am

  87. I just bought a Ipod Touch 5th Gemeration. No matter the video resolution I play (720,1080P AVI, MP4)…etc, I can’t fill the screen with Gplayer. Is this because of the new screen resolution of the new Ipod Touch 5th Gen or Gplayer needs a new update for support ?

    I am streaming video from my Synology DS112 and play via DS Video app and Gplayer is required to stream movies via DSM to Ipod.

    I get two black bars on the sides of the video when I fill.


    October 15, 2012 at 7:14 pm

    • We will update a patch to support iPhone5/iPod touch 5 in the near future.


      October 16, 2012 at 2:44 am

  88. Oh, thank you!

    That would be great to view my movies on the whole screen. But what a bummer after paying full price after hearing about it and DSM recommending it and then it not working right.


    October 16, 2012 at 11:43 am

  89. If playing the 720p mkv not smooth(suddenly audio and video not synchronize), recommend using skip loop filter or skip frame?


    October 17, 2012 at 2:25 pm

  90. Hi, I have a questions about airplay, I cannot play videos(already captured in GPlayer) using apple tv, just got sound but no video in my TV, i.e. sound play in my TV, but video still run in my 4s, why? Any solutions? p.s. I am using itune 10.7 & IOS 6.0 with my IPhone 4s, of course GPlayer version was updated.


    October 21, 2012 at 6:09 pm

    • Same here, same setup.


      October 25, 2012 at 11:54 am

    • Hi, I have the same problem with Apple TV. NO video 😦
      Did you find the solution? Thank you for your help.


      November 14, 2012 at 9:25 am

      • make sure you have enabled AirPlay mirroring feature.


        November 17, 2012 at 2:42 am

  91. Hi, very enthusiastic about Gplayer, thanks for this app. One thing I can’t get to work: I have subtitles correctly named in the same folder as the movie, but do not get them on the screen. In earler responses you mentioned to check the decoding option in the information tab, however in this tab there is no option for subtitle whatsoever, It has the caption “subtitle” with no possibility to choose/click anything. can you help out? Thanks for your time.


    October 24, 2012 at 11:25 am

    • Must be this format:abc.avi with


      October 26, 2012 at 2:14 am

      • As mentioned, the naming is exactly the same, in the format you mentioned, that’s not the issue. Any idea why the subtitle is not choosable in the information tab?


        October 26, 2012 at 6:47 am

        • I have the same problem. But I open the file via a DLNA server.
          maybe it works only when the files are locally stored on the IPAD.

          can someone confirm this, or do I something wrong.


          October 26, 2012 at 8:59 am

          • Dranos, you’re setup is indeed the same as mine, going through a DLNA, This could indeed be it. Hope someone can confirm/resolve this.


            October 26, 2012 at 9:02 am

            • Jurgen,
              I tested it by by opening (open with gplayer) both files via the local storage from my webdav filebrowser (ds file for my synology Nas) the files are then copied to the folders in gplayer. After that the subs are working:

              Conclusion; srt subs are not supporter via DLNA.

              But I found a way to store the files locally without iTunes or the integrated wifi download method.


              October 27, 2012 at 10:03 am

              • Thanks Dranos, appreciate your efforts.


                October 29, 2012 at 9:32 am

  92. My MPEG 2 video played fine yesterday but this morning after updating Gplayer, I noticed that I can no longer get audio when playing back the same video file on my original iPad.


    October 25, 2012 at 9:47 pm

    • it is because the ac3 audio patent issue, No video app supports ac3 now.


      October 26, 2012 at 2:14 am

      • This is why my .vob files muted? There is /or will be/ any solution? I liked this app so much because I could watch DVDs without converting…


        October 26, 2012 at 2:49 pm

        • The main menu .vob is working. Maybe there is an error with my files… :/


          October 26, 2012 at 3:07 pm

  93. WTF happened to audio? How can I downgrade the app???

  100. Hi. My subtitles are not working after I updated GPlayer. I’m sure I’ve named them correctly and I’m able to choose the srt file while the video is playing. I selected the srt file but it still won’t work. Any idea how to solve this problem?


    November 17, 2012 at 7:30 pm



    November 20, 2012 at 8:37 am

      • Hi,

        I installed DS file + gplayer. I use IPAD 4 and Synology DS 212J NAS.

        If I download a video on my IPAD with DS file (no idea where it save it), and if I click click on it, the gplayer icon appear but don’t play the video.

        If I play the video directly from NAS with gplayer it work fine.

        Any idea what’s happening?

        Than you.

  110. added one 1.8gb and one 360mb, both avi format videos in gplayer via itunes and the 360mb works perfectly fine but 1.8gb video has got no sound. Please help~~~


    January 3, 2013 at 11:24 am

    • GPlayer doesn’t support audio codec – AC3, E-AC3, TrueHD codec. You must upload to your device movie with any different audio codec any movie will be played as usually. OR change application until GPlayers developers resovle problems with taxes for these audio codecs (If at all).


      January 3, 2013 at 12:01 pm

  111. Hi, could you explain a little how file management works? I can see folders can be created / deleted in Edit mode, but is there a way to move / drag files into them? I understand from other comments that file management can be done via wi-fi, but not through iTunes.


    February 13, 2013 at 11:30 am

  112. I installed GPlayer on my iPad1 running iOS 5.1.
    (1) When I output a 480p or 720p file to either my 720p plasma or my 1080p LCD HDTV and select TV out, the images have a fine cross-hatching and the colors are dulled, muted and no longer bright. Also, the image doesn’t fill the screen, no matter what aspect ratio I pick in the GPlayer menu. How do I fix this?
    (2) When I’m outputting a file to the TV, the iPad screen is black but still on; if the file has subtitles, the iPad screen shows a black background and subtitles. If I press the iPad’s sleep/wake button, it stops playback. Is there a way to completely disable the iPad screen while watching videos to save on battery life?


    P.S. Using your fingers to expand and move the subtitles is brilliant.


    March 4, 2013 at 9:54 pm

  113. I try to play mp4 file with srt subtitle file…but it can’t show the subtitle and no option to select when play the mp4 file. please help …thanks

    March 13, 2013 at 12:43 am

  116. gplayer is great, but one very annoying behaviour is that if one pushes their iphone capacity to the maximum (in any app at all), gplayer erases all video and there is no way to restore them other than restoring the entire phone.


    March 13, 2013 at 4:06 pm

    • enable backup in the settings page will not remove your files, otherwise apple will remove your data when disk in low capacity.

  117. During FTP upload, it the filename starts with a number, the program removes the number. eg if I have files
    1 – filenameA.wmv
    2 – filenameB.wmv

    These files will be renamed to

    I want to keep the original file name with the leading number to keep them sorted.

    HTTP upload does not remove the number, but only allow upload one file at a time.


    April 17, 2013 at 12:43 pm

    • Thanks for your info, we will check it.
      You can drag multiple files to the upload section if you use chrome or safari through http upload.


      April 17, 2013 at 12:47 pm

  118. I added few movies to gplayer by copying over using http and since then whenever and whatever i try to play with DS video, the gplayer crashes. I disabled multiple threads as well but that didnt help at all. Although the copied movies on my ipad works fine.

Earlier, i used to play it over the network but it started crashing since i uploaded videos manually. I have the application on my iPhone and it works fine (note- iPhone doesn’t have videos uploaded/copied), hence i am sure the videos are good.

Also, just to let you know, i have a Synology NAS and i use one of their apps called DS Video which uses gplayer to play video over the network.

  122. Hi, its fastidious piece of writing regarding media print, we all understand media is a
    impressive source of data.

  123. I bought your app to play video from a Synology NAS, and although it plays recorded videos via DS File I can’t find any way to play anything through their Videostation app which plays live TV streams from a tuner dongle as well. Is there a workaround or support coming for this? Videostation prompts you to install GPlayer, ACePlayer or Oplayer, and Oplayer does support this, I hope I haven’t wasted my money, as I bought it only for the live streaming. .


    July 4, 2013 at 4:55 am

    • Please ignore, sorry after a few reinstalls and resets it’s working fine.

    February 24, 2014 at 5:49 am

  132. I love the app and have been using it for a quite a while now, but since the update to version 2 I have had a few issue’s, all problems were not there in previous version.
    – I can’t see the full file names of my videos, making it hard to load the correct file to watch.
    – when i now connect my phone to the PC i can’t see the folders and files that are on my phone.
    – Minor problem – can you add a setting to be able to change the background from yellow, as a prefer the old version as it made the app easier to use.

    I’m sure your working on the issues but do you have a time scale of when the update will be posted.


    April 22, 2014 at 1:33 am

    • 1) we will fix it in the next update2) try to enable backup in the settings page of gplayer3) we will consider more theme in the future update

  134. Hi,
    Problem while playing 1080p video using software decoding, the video loads frame by frame.
    It works like a charm when hardware decoding is used, however cannot use subtitles in hardware decoding. I watch a lot of foreign movies.

    Please help. I have an ipad air 2.



    December 18, 2014 at 6:14 pm

  135. Hi, I’ve been trying the TV out feature through a Tv dongle on an iPad Air 2, and GPlayer won’t use they entire screen while Apple Video app, with the exact same setup and files, does.

    Is that an issue that has been investigated?

    P.S. : I’ve tried the setting in the app without any visible effect.
