The popular media player app nPlayer has just received a significant update on iOS, thereby gaining a number of notable features and enhancements.

All-in player

Launched in July 2012, nPlayer is a great alternative to the likes of VLC and Infuse.

With its non-encoding and conversion-free playback, you need not worry about the formats of the media you want to play in the app, as it supports: MP4, MKV, TP, MOV, AVI, WMV, ASF, FLV, OGV, RMVB, and more for video files; MP3, WAV, WMA, FLAC, APE, and more for audio files; and DTS (DTS HD) and Dolby (AC3, E-AC3) codecs.

The app also lets you watch and download videos on the Web using its built-in Web browser. Moreover, you can connect the app wirelessly to Chromecast or a smart TV to watch on a bigger screen.

Amazon Cloud Drive integration

Cloud sync is also included in nPlayer’s impressive feature set. This allows you to connect the app to your preferred cloud storage services and does away with the need to store files in your device, especially if it has limited space. In addition to various servers, nPlayer can be linked with Box, Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive, Yandex.Disk, and now, Amazon Cloud Drive.

Just go to the app’s Network tab, tap the plus button, tap Amazon Cloud Drive, and sign in to your Amazon account to start accessing your Amazon Cloud Drive files on nPlayer.
