Play FLV, AVI, MKV, OGG, WMV, AC3 and Subtitles using ‘It’s Playing 2.0’ on iPad

Written by Gradly on . Posted in Apple, blog, Download, iPad, Software

A new app called “It’s Playing 2.0.” available for iPad can play FLV, AVI, MKV, OGG, WMV and it does AC3 sound and subtitles. A whole range of features including adjustments for colour, contracts, brightness and sound so you can adjust the playback to suite the video file.

Play all video and audio formats commonly available on the web — including AVI, RMVB, MKV and FLV (Flash Video)

— What’s so special about It’s playing — iPads, iPhones and iPods have great video capabilities. On latest models you can even shoot and encode high resolution video and stereo sound in real time. The problem with most videos available on the Internet – sent by email, or on web sites – is that they don’t use the formats handled natively by iOS (mpeg4 and h264).

Decoding and playing videos are among the most resource-hungry tasks that computers perform today. When playing high-resolution, high-bit rate movies, devices often lack the necessary resources to decode and show one or more frames on time. These issues can result in noticeable pauses or in desynchronization between sound and image. It really depends on the player you are using.

What differentiates It’s playing, apart from pricing and the quality of the user interface, is the engine that takes advantage of the outstanding hardware and operating system it runs on. AdditionFlow© is our optimized process for making sure that you get more video frames more synchronized with the audio, ensuring the best viewing experience.

The app costs $1.99/ £1.49 from iTunes

Written by Gradly on . Posted in Apple, blog, Gadgets, How To, iPad, Jailbreak, News, Rants & Raves, Social Networks, Tutorials

The entire world has been patiently awaiting the arrival of a Facebook iPad app. This however is just about to change. As discovered by some folks on Twitter and confirmed by TechCrunch, the new Facebook iPad app is ready and actually already out there. Indeed, Facebook did develop the app and placed it inside its code already, but hasn’t simply activated it. Just a few lines of code to change can however make it happen.

Hidden in the code of Facebook’s iPhone app is the code for something else. Something everyone has been waiting over a year for. The iPad app.

The gist of the trick is a modification to make inside the Facebook app discovered by AeroEchelon on Twitter:

If you change the UIDeviceFamily to 2 for iPhone on the Facebook app you get an iPad version!

You can make apps iPad compatible without pixelation and 2x button and also you can make the app support all 4 orientations. Here is how:

1.  Navigate to the app you want to make compatible in /var/mobile/Applications 2.  Open the info.plist in the applications main folder 3.  Add the follow: <key>UIDeviceFamily</key> <array> <integer>1</integer> <integer>2</integer> </array> 4. Respring and then you should have a nice iPad size app

iClarified has a full step by step guide on how to achieve just that. It’s actually the same technique that has been long used to force iPhone-only apps to run in full screen on the iPad.

Update #1:

Facebook has blocked access to iPad version

Update #2:

You can re-enable Facebook’s iPad app by doing this:
  • Download Facebook app
  • Open Cydia and install FaceForward [a free tweak available under BigBoss repo]

Photovine is Google’s attempt at social photo sharing that takes on other platforms such as Flickr, Facebook photos, Picasa and other services.

Release notes from iTunes:

Photovine is a fun way to learn more about your friends, meet new people, and share your world like never before. It all starts with what we call a photovine: a group of photos around a single, shared caption. Start a new vine with a photo and caption of your own or add your photo/take on someone else’s vine. Photovine is invite-only at the moment, so you’ll be asked to enter your email address after installing the app. If you haven’t already been invited to Photovine by a friend, you can visit our website at to request an invitation.
