Interesting. I didn't even realize there was an iOS version of VLC (free too) available. I installed it on my iPad Air, turned on web server on my PC, and downloaded a decrypted HD .mpg from .TiVo file (720p) with captions. Surprisingly the iPad air played it back flawlessly, but only with captions turned off. As soon as I enabled captions playback became horribly choppy. In any case, it's nice to have another playback option. Though realistically, these HD mpeg2 files are too big to download to the iPad so not really a practical solution, but nice to know that it's possible... I'll have to do some experimenting now to see if H.264 with captions (generated by VideoRedo) will play properly via VLC on the iPad.
