iPad App Review: Continuous playback of videos on the iPad

iPad App Review: Continuous playback of videos on the iPad

July 19th, 2012 by

The name of this app may be long and not very catchy, but it certainly lets you know up front what it is you’re buying. If you’ve been looking for a way to continuously play back the videos that you’ve purchased, on your iPad, then “Continuous playback of videos on the iPad” by masayuki mieno may just be the app you’ve been looking for.

In fact, I can’t quite see how it would NOT be the app that you’ve been looking for.

How It Works

What this app does it quite simple: it scans your iPad’s “Videos” library and lets you play them from within the app, but with the added ability to create playlists and continuously play videos back-to-back. It will scan your device’s Music Videos, TV Shows, Movies, and Playlists, display them all as thumbnails, and then you just tap what you want to watch and it adds them to the graphical playlist at the top of the screen.

The app is designed simply and has large, obvious controls that  make it clear how to do what you want to do: just tap a video, press play, and you’re done. Want to clear the playlist? The button for that looks like a standard “eject” button, a brilliant touch.

It’s actually a great idea to be able to continuously play your video library. Going on a long trip and don’t want to risk everyone’s life by reaching into the back seat to select another movie for Junior? Having a party and want to just let your library of music videos play continuously on the TV? Just like watching a lot of movies in a row? This app is what you need.

Overall

“Continuous playback of videos on the iPad” could use a different name, but it’s a nice utility for videophiles with a specific need, and I think we all know by now what that specific need is, don’t we? One word of caution: I had no luck getting this app to work on a first-generation iPad testing device. It worked fine on other devices, but not a first-gen model.

    Will it play DRM protected files?
