Niftiness of the day: NGMoviePlayer on bitbucket, sample code for using AV Foundation to play movies. As described here:

It does some of what MPMoviePlayerControllerView does.

Stellar marketing there, indeed. And why exactly would you want to bother doing that then, other than pure curiosity? If you run into this bug!

(I had to write a custom movie player because of a bug in iOS 4 where after you play a movie that’s embedded in a UIWebView, MPMoviePlayerController won’t work as expected: it plays just a few frames and then automatically pauses the movie. <radr://8326264>)

So if that bug’s biting you, or might … you know where to go!

h/t: iOS Development Goodies!
