I've been working on a iPad project lately that needed a custom movieplayer control. I wasn't able to find a complete solution on the interwebs so I decided to create one myself and open source it on GitHub. It is not perfect and I need to fix a few issues but I will be updating it regularly since I am using it in one of my projects.
Feel free to suggest any improvements! Github link: CustomMoviePlayer - A custom movieplayer control for iPad
The two links below were very helpful, with code and examples, in completing the custom movieplayer control. Here is some link love for those developers!
