    Default VLC4iPhone
    Hey, I've tested some xvid (.avi) files with vlc4iphone and it appears to have the processing power to display them at close to full frame rate, something my iPhone could never do. Problem is, even with FullForce, it will only display in the top right corner of the iPad. Does anyone know of another app that supports vxid playback that is currently working in fullscreen? Thanks in advance.

    Never manually, but my understanding is that is what FullForce does.

    Just wondering if mplayer would work, but I gather it would probably give the same results. Also, have you tried mkv's.

    Anybody know if someone is making a player that would work well?

    If playing avi/mkv works fully, it would definitely convince me to get an iPad.

    I could not get mplayer to work, crashes immediately. I'll try a mkv later, but as it is just a container, i am sure it will work. Just have to figure out how to get the video to play at larger resolutions.

    Not sure about 3gp, but if you use iFile and browse to the files, it should open them with the default player.

    Hi Guys, VLC4iphone is working, the issue is, its only in vertical mode, even if you rotate your ipad, nothing happens to the video your playing, any one knows how to make it rotate? maybe something in the info.ini?

    Default Don't update to Openstreamer
    Just did and it's a mess. Slow, crashes and now has ads.
    A step back from VLC4Iphone which wasn't perfect but it was great.

    If anybody knows how to reinstall VLC4iphone manually and where to find it please post.

    Download Oplayer from the actual App store. It'll play xvid/divx and a few other formats on the iPad itself, quite a wonder that Apple ok'ed it. I use iFile to either wifi the files on or since I got the camera connection kit I just load on a bunch of avi's and play off the memory card/usb dive via iFile or cut/paste into a download folder on the iPad

    Oplayer to me seemed like a good option, as I can can transfer episodes of my favourite shows within seconds. Yxplayer is another clone which is helpful as well. Both these apps are compatible with iPad but they are paid apps. You can add them through the file transfer section in itunes under the list of apps in your iPad. Airvideo seems to also be a good choice as you can stream videos from your computer (via interwebz) in most video formats. A free version of this app is available.
