    Default 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**

    it wont even go 15seconds.. like 3~4 seconds, then boom..

    played .avi CSI episode downloaded off the net ok but when you tap the screen to change aspect ratio it does funny things (skipping frames/ scrolling screen effects)

    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

    you mean var/root/media or var/mobile/media

    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

    schnedi, yo hablo español tambien, pues el programa es bueno pero necesita algunos arreglos con el sonido

    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.
