How to Enable More Video Formats Playback on iPhone?

Won’t it be a mood-killer when you are planning to watch some videos on your iPhone and suddenly realize that it only supports that few video formats while travelling on the train or bus? That’s no big deal; you can get rid of such awkward moments either by downloading some universal media player, or by converting the formats.

How to enable your iPhone play more videos of various formats? There are several solutions to get this solved.

1. Free video players:


FlexPlayer-iPhone Video Player
FlexPlayer is free media player for iPhone and iPod Touch as well as iPad.
Video formats it supports: AVI, MPEG, VOB, MKV, MP4 and MOV, FLV DivX, Xvid, and even Webm, etc. Playback of HD videos for QuickTime formats up to 1280x720 is available.
It possesses a user-friendly interface without ads. But it lacks of multiple audio track support and only hard subtitles allowed. Actually, you may encounter WMV video format, which may be a big flaw for it.


AcePlayer-iPhone Video Player
Aceplayer is compatible with iPhone/iPod/iPad. Just transfer the media files to your i-devices by iTunes File Sharing or through Wi-Fi, video will be played.
Video formats it supports: WMV, AVI, RMVB, RM, MP4, 3GP, XVID, MPG, etc.
Audio formats supported: MP3, RM, ACC, FLV, RM, etc.
Subtitles: .smi, .srt, ssa, .ass, .sub txt.
But from its website, it seems it is not always free.

2. Other Video Players

There are many other options available as well.
Some video players for iPhone 5 full screen playback could be your best choices, RockPlayer2, Azul Media Player, etc.
Well, actually, if you are lucky enough to download VLC Media Player mac version before it is pulled down form app store, that’ll be really perfect for you.
CineXPlayer, will also be good.

Or, you probably should also try some tools. I’ve searched the app store and found some really nice converting tool. That will be possible for you to play as many videos as possible, and not restricted by the video player. For example, you can get some video players that allow DVD playback, or you can always get DVD or VOB to other formats with some kind of DVD software.

Thus, there are less limitations for your iPhone video playback. You can thoroughly enjoy your trip video feast. You can either get a powerful video player, or get your video friendly to your player. Have a try.
