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.
NOTE: this is not an app to organize existing movies in your iTunes library - Apple does not currently allow access to these files by third parties.
Enhanced playback controls when connected to an external display via HDMI or AirPlay.
Ratings and Reviews
This app is simple and to the point - terrific!
This app is perfect for me. It allows me to import a selection of videos from my computer. Then, I can arrange those videos in the order I choose, and select which ones I want to have playing at any given occasion. I represent musical groups at conferences, and this is a great way to show off what they can do. Even better, I can select my logo to appear in between the videos, so that the playlist is really my own. The ipad makes it all look great, and I'm one happy customer!
Needs More Work
This app shows some promise, but it definitely needs some more work. It is very basic and has virtually no customization options or features. I was misled by the word "manager" in the apps name. It does not allow you to manage much except putting all your movies in one location which can be done with cheaper software. While movies can be organized, they must be organized from iTunes so if you are OCD about chronology and order, this app is not for you unless you have a lot of time on your hands to meticulously upload in the EXACT order you want to play your movies.
I was hoping this app would be the solution to my iPad Video Playlist woes. It ain't. Though, yes, it is possible to edit and organize the playlist from within the app on iPad, when iPad syncs with iTunes, those changes are lost and the videos in the app are once again arranged alphabetically/numerically. This is very disappointing. How difficult is it to solve this problem? Where is the 10-year-old with a few extra hours who can design an app, charge $4.99 for it, and make us Video Playlist hopefuls happy? Where are you?
save the playlist (rather than just leaving it as the default list) and it will remember all of your settings and modifications.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
