Another cool feature of ReplayerHD is that it supports closed captioning and subtitles, making it easy to watch any video that has text embedded in it.
ReplayerHD can play various video file formats such as avi, mpg, mpeg, asf, flv, mkv, m4v, mov, wmv, vob, swf, ts, tp, rmvb, divx, kg3, mts, and m2ts. It can also play various audio file formats such as mp3, m4a, rm, wma, wav, ogg, and 3gp.
Replayer HD also lets you transfer files over wifi, making it a great tool for sharing your videos, in addition to giving you a cool app to watch them with.
You have the option to sync your videos with iTunes, or keep them separated, which is a nice touch. Even cooler is the touch locking function. This prevents you from accidentally touching the screen and screwing up the playback.
If you choose to use ReplayerHD to play audio files instead of video files, you’ll be pleased to learn that ReplayerHD has LRC support, which syncs lyrics to your mp3 collection.
