    Default App to open videos from safari?

    Is there an app that will allow me to open video files from the Internet originated from safari? I don't want a third party app that has its own browser. I want to use safari, and when I get to a video iOS doesn't support be able to open the file in the third part app.

    I don't have a specific format. Any file that isn't natively supported by iOS.

    Since most formats are supported, it would be helpful to know which format you're not able to open so that we can steer you to something that will work.

    When you come to a video on the web that isn't supported in safari for iOS after downloading it doesn't actually tell you the file format. It gives you the sharing menu to open with a third party app
