CineXPlayer. Xvid playback app now available in the App Store, but for how long?

CineXPlayer is a simple video player that supports the popular Xvid video format. With the iTunes Store being fully accessible from the device, iPad owners have access to a huge range of movies, TV shows and podcasts, but it is entirely possible that you'll have a number of Xvid AVI files in storage that are not presently playable on the iPad. That is where CineXPlayer comes in handy.

We are fully aware that Xvid is the video CODEC of choice for video torrents, but there are plenty of legitimate reasons for wanting Xvid compatibility. For example, some video/stills cameras and PVR's use Xvid.

We have given CineXPlayer some brief testing this morning and noticed that it struggled with one of our test files so we are unable to recommend it without reservation. However, it did play all our standard definition Xvid files and the developer is looking to increase compatibility soon.

If you are looking for an Xvid playback solution for your iPad it is certainly worth considering CineXPlayer, and as we believe it could get pulled from the App Store at some point, it might be worth picking up a copy sooner rather than later.
