I have a jailbroken ipad 3 that plays avi or mkv files fine from a flash drive, but it copies them to the ipad first. Is there a program that will play all videos without first coping to the ipad? I only have a 16 gb ipad and space is a problem. Thanks for any help.
I think this is an exaggerating issue with all of apple devices. you do not have any shared memory for all apps.
for example if you have a movie in one of your players such as ace player, other movie player apps cant use that movie file unless you use "open in" option and it copies the file to the other app. therefore you have to delete one of the duplicate files.
it means none of the apps cant access to others files and every thing is private.
but since you have jailbreaked your ipad, there must be some tweeks to do so.
