Video Playlist Manager for iPad, iPhone and iPod is a professionally designed, stand-alone video playback system for creating and editing multiple playlists directly on your iOS device. Playlists play in a continuous loop, and can be optionally password protected.
Clear controls for starting & stopping playback, skipping forward and back in a playlist, along with fullscreen support and the iPad’s famously long battery-life, combine to make this app part of an ideal solution for creating elegant, self-contained video displays at trade shows and other events. Simply prop up the iPad, hit play, and walk away.
VPM is a powerful advertising tool for professionals in many situations, including:
• as a self-contained display at a trade show or conference
• realtors can have a video playlist of their available homes playing on the welcome table, in their office or at an open house
• artists can display a video playlist of their work at a gallery, looping indefinitely
Unique branding features:
You can feature your logo floating in front of the video at whatever size and location you wish. Similarly, you can choose to display your logo or any other image in between each video.
Playback and management are easy and intuitive:
By default, videos are played in a continuous loop, and may be paused and restarted at any time. Clips may also be rearranged on the fly, with chosen videos skipped or played. Finally, you may also organize different groups of clips into separate playlists and save them independently.
You may assign a password to prevent the editing of an existing playlist, or even to prevent the launching of the app at all by an unauthorized person.
VPM offers an optional Kiosk presentation mode that sports a simplified UI that hides most management controls.
VPM doesn't just support external displays; it also offers overscan controls to match the video output of most displays and projectors.
In this Lite version, looped playback is not supported, and the number of videos is limited to 10. These features may be added via in-app purchase, or you may simply purchase the full version from the app store, which supports looping and unlimited video clips.
NOTE: this is not an app to organize existing videos in your iTunes library!
Enhanced playback controls when connected to an external display via HDMI or AirPlay.
Ratings and Reviews
Doesn't manage videos
You can create playlists, but EVERY video file is in every playlist, and you can only toggle each individual file on and off. there's no way to mange the videos in the playlist so the playlist only has the five or six videos you want, every playlist has to have all 200 of your video library in it and you uncheck hundreds of times for every playlist.
This Does What All The Others Can't
I use an iPad to drive a video that loops throughout the course of a trade show. But to loop a video you need to have an App that can do that. I've never been able to make the iPhoto App do this, even following instructions to a T. So of all the video-looping Apps I found, NONE of them could drive the video so that it fills a 24" monitor screen. In every case, the image would fill a small center section of the screen, leaving an annoying (and large) black border around the video. But this Video Playlist Manager DOES fill the entire screen while looping the video. I was so thrilled, and if I could give this 10 stars I would.
This app deserves some credit. Works well on my iPad Air 2 and for the purposes I use it for it's great. I purchased the pro upgrade (couldn't leave a review on there because I didn't purchase the separate app). The branding options were just what I needed. My critiques are as follows:
I think the GUI could be improved. Especially with the $9.99 Pro price. It just looks a bit dated to me. Also the ability to lock the editing of playlists and options is a nice feature but why still show them on the page. The "manage playlists" and "branding options" should be hidden, for the sake of a simpler user experience.
