  • MPlayer comes to iPhone


    MPlayer, the multi-OS media player which supports mpeg4, h.264, wmv, mp3, aac, wma, real media, and t-dmb formats, has been ported to iPhone and is now available via the ModMyi.com Cydia source.

    Ported by skiman100, MPlayer will read any files in those formats in /private/var/media, and play them back. Combine that with dTunes or the MobileSafari download plugin and video sites, etc - and you've got yourself a pretty solid mobile media device. Mplayer is a great way to boost your iPhone's media abilities.

    Hosting your app or theme on the ModMyi Cydia source is easy - just fill out this form.

      Plays Ok, OUt of Sync, waiting for VLC.

      EDIT: Doesnt play most of my files, either black screen or very much out of sync and skips frames.

      Wow this thread is harsh.
      I'm sure it's a work in progress. I'm happy someone is trying to improve the horrendous codec support of the iPhone/iPod touch..
      +1 to Mplayer

      just download couple of scene released xvid sample, the audio is good, but the video is not, the cartoon xvid is watchable. watching the family guy xvid episode directly after download from safari download plugin is priceless, no conversion just great. good apps.

      I used it and the wmv worked but it wasn't as good as I hoped. I'll wait for upgrades

      I'm pretty sure the app crashing and the poor frame rates are caused by excessive file sizes. I experienced the same problems, but all of my files exceeded 100 MB and were at a resolution of 720 x 480 or higher.

      Although it would be awesome to have vlc ported with the ability to load subs and multiple audio sources.
