    For a paid service I would take a look at Spotify.
    For a free music player I would look at Real Player (seriously). No ads. Music, photos and video. It supports divx/xvid, wmv, avi.

    The best player is double twist. He has a good style in playing.

    You'd best be trolling, or a DT developer.

    Sure about that? Seems to only play MP3 and MP4. A folder and emmc level view would be nice, so see all miedia in both locations.

    I'm not so sure about the Android DoubleTwist player, but the DT media manager and sync for Windows is a kludgy, buggy, POS. The DT media manager is so bad that it makes me wary of even trying the Android player. It works fine with an iPod, but is absolute crap with Android.

    I'm using MediaMonkey now.

    I tried installing both Doubletwist and realplayer earlier today in order to have a look at both apps. Both look good, however.... after a few hours my Galaxy S stopped recognising the SD cards (brick). Tried off and on, tried off, battery / SD out, back on and phone just refused to recognise SD cards.

    I tried plugging the phone into a car charger and immediately got the well known MTP application icon flicking on and off (people experience this when having problems connecting to Samsung desktop software, kies). Usually this is a problem with long filenames i.e. more than 16 characters after the .

    so... Deleted both apps from the phone, turned off then on and SD card were back.

    Unsure which of the two caused the problem, but just a word of caution to other SGS owners.

    I've been using the doubleTwist player. I'll have to give that realplayer a go. Also note, when you install DT, it enables automatic USB mounting. You can disable that in DT settings.

    Hands down, the best music player I've tried is 'Music Player Pro'. I actually wrote about this on another thread and am working on a large review of it. I've used all the major music players at some point, looking for that one cure-all solution. bTunes was my favorite for awhile, however since the developer abandoned it, i've moved on knowing that it's bugs are only going to get worse with new builds. MixZing is very feature rich, but the interface is boring and not very intuitive. TuneWiki has some really unique and cool features, but still isn't ideal. DoubleTwist looks nice but you can't even create a fricken playlist on the fly and there are some other standard music features it lacks.

    However, a few weeks back I found Music Player Pro which had just recently released and I can finally say that I've found a rival to iphones music player. Not only that, but the developer is EXTREMELY responsive. Just a week back, people were asking for the ability to scrobble and the developer already added it.

    You can download and pick album artwork for albums, search for lyrics, retrieve artist info, use various skins, search library by artist/album/song/genre/playlist/folder. You can create playlists on the fly. You can filter out songs by keywords. In the future the dev is adding the ability for custom skins, editing ID tags and more..

    Also, the current skin is sorta meh, but a new skin will be launched in the next week or so that features custom vertical and horizontal layouts.

    How do I know this? Well, having been so happy to finally find a great music player, I created a skin for the player and have been talking with the developer ever since and he is working on integrating it now. I know I probably sound like I'm advertising, but honestly, I've been in the same exact boat as all of you and I won't be making a dime for the skin. I, as you probably have, have just been looking for that music player that 'does it all', and I'm just excited to actually find one that is not only great already, but has so much potential to be greater. As I said before, I thought bTunes would be that player, but with the developer abandoning it, I moved on.

    I'll post some screenshots of the updated skin here a bit later.

    Not yet, but you can email the developer and I will as well. He is pretty motivated to keep improving his product so I'm sure he will get to it soon.

    yxflash didn't work on Android 2.1. It plays .mov only sound without video, as for .flv - doesn't plays at all.
    And don't take Zimly: it crashes while generating thumbnail of unsupported video [codec], and hothing prevents it from thumbnail generation ;(
    Meridian is the best free so far, though, didn't try Cinema yet.

    Sorry to hear that Zimly is crashing on you. We heard something about this a few weeks back and implemented a fix that should prevent Zimly from crashing if the codec is unsupported. If Zimly is still giving you problems, why not drop by Community-powered support for zim.lyand explain what is happening in detail so that we can figure out how to fix it.

    Winamp just recently became available for Android, and it's free. Check the market if you're a fan. There's also a beta dektop component that will sync between PC and phone.

    Some info here.
