  • 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.

      SWEET will test it out now!

      EDIT:

      ok so i threw an mpg at it and it wouldn't play it, and then i threw an avi at it, and its playing it at about 1 frame every 5 seconds.. :/ and at about 15 seconds in, it rebooted my phone... now i'm looking at the original post closer and seeing that maybe it doesn't support those formats... but if it doesn't support mpg and avi... whats the point? **waits for vlc**

      I've been trying it since yesterday (there is a thread I posted on) and I used an avatar avi, it works ok but a little audio sync problem at times, and I created a symlink to the downloads folder and all is good

      thats why you have to create the folder /private/var/media.......

      its not gonna find your videos on var/root/media or var/mobile/media

      it has to be private/var/media
      and media cannot have a capital M

      Just what I've been waiting for, no more converting AVI files.
      It played the File OK but not smoothly and the audio was out of sync.

      Tapping the screen caused the video to start rolling like an out of sync tv.

      I'll keep an eye on the thread, hopefully an improved version will come soon.

      Good effort.

      Pretty kewl app. Just some things I have noticed..

      The sync is off
      frames skip
      runs the bat slightly more than the iPhone movie app


      This has great potential and I am sure over time this app will function great. Look foward to getting the next release.

      Side note---Wouldnt it be nice to be able to view movie/java in Safari? Im just saying...lol
