iOS Anime Playback
 
Anyone here watches anime episodes on an iPhone/iPod touch/iPad? This would be by transferring the file from the computer to the device.

I've seen a couple of apps, but the ones I've tried (VLC and OPlayer) don't work at all (MKV files with subtitles), they either freeze or remain in a black screen.

VLC works with mkv on occasion, but its best to convert everything to *.m4v.

Handbrake has a nice iTouch preset

to get softsubs to work:

SSA/ASS:
Select from drop down menu, check burn in, hit add. This turns them in to hardsubs.

SRT:
You can either get from the video or import one from an external file. burn in is an option as iOS does support softsub SRT somewhat.

if you want to use apps , airvideo is very simple and works very fast with small files , but i don't like much how it handles the subs, but this one is the most simple i found

Yeah, I'd prefer to use an app than to re-encode; I have a ton of files and it would be a pain to convert them :/

i would suggest you get vlc. though i think they pulled the app from the store.

I have found that VLC support for mkv's has been a bit unreliable. Too bad it got pulled before they could make it better. Its still available via Cydia I think though.

I already have VLC for iPhone (got it before it got pulled), and at least for the videos I watch (720p MKV) the whole thing freezes, and only audio comes up. I tried with several ones and ended up having the same results.

VLC iOS is fairly bad at handling even SD mkv's.

Have you tried streaming with Air Video yet?

At first I didn't want to install anything on my computer, but ended up doing it and trying the free version (limited to view 3 items on a folder). It worked pretty well, no delays and subs showed up just fine. The video (live conversion) was a lil blocky, but no biggie. IMO it was pretty good considering it's live and I don't have to copy anything.

Tested with a couple 720p videos.

Actually I'm about to go on a trip for a week and would like to know this too, but for actually playing and storing the videos on the iPad, not just streaming them.

I'll try hard subbing through Handbrake, but is there any program that will add ASS subtitles to an mp4? Handbrake and Yamb only do srt.

sneaker 2011-05-23 05:55

HandBrake does ASS-in-MKV to hardsubbed mp4/mkv, you don't have to do any demuxing beforehand. If you only have an mp4+ass as source, you could mux with mkvmerge prior to using HandBrake.

Try using Subler for the job. You can even go further and configure episode numbers/titles so the iPad groups an entire series together.
