    use Rock(divx)Player ..google it

    I have tried two .avi's so far & they both work great (burn notice & Superbad). Just drop in the .avi file on to the SD card & run the app.

    Tip: I think this is a beta version so the default screen shows FPS rate on the top right ....but if you press divx pic on the screen twice it will turn all captions off & you have the option to stretch the image to full screen.

    Use stock player for .MP4 & this Rock player for .avi files


    you can use handbrake & other methods if you really want to have high settings & encode in HD but this thing gets the job done in seconds.

    this should be more reliable then yxplayer...

    Bitrate and resolution?

    Can this player handle standard hdtv-rips at 624x352 @ 29.97 fps? yxflash chokes on anything of that rate, would be surprised if this player handles it fine.

    I downloaded the apk in another thread for this app and it seems to work ok. I havent tried it yet with an AVI yet due to being at work, but i tested with a MP4 i already had of The hangover and it seemed to work pretty well.

    The stock player plays it the mp4 at full screen which is great but this avi player doesnt. It has the black bars on top like its wide screen.

    Ill try an AVI when i get home.

    Even the the wide screen and black bars are annoying on a screen like this i guess the trade off is that there may be no need for coverting movies. Just download and go which is nice.

    I would rather convert to a better resolution and get the screen size, but there are some that dont know how or dont have time to fiddle n test.

    As stated either in this post or in another thread that there is the frame rate at the top right corner. It didnt bother me in my movie viewing but i can see how it could get annoying.

    If it really does play AVI files then it would be worth paying a few bucks for once its out of beta.

    I just installed it on my own phone, working pretty good so far :) The only issue is a tiny "divx player" icon on the bottom of the screen. i'll upload some screenshots in a bit.

    I've got it running trying an xvid 720p rip, running at about 15fps. Needs to go a little faster to be really watchable in HD, but better than xy for sure. It does run regular DVD rip AVI files though at full frames, between 24 and 30 average. Hard to beat that for sure, I'm very happy to see this bad boy now!

    Seems to work much better with avi's than mp4's thus far. Had some sync issues with one movie I had in mp4 but the avis worked pretty well on both my Evo and my coworkers Incredible.

    Pic shown taking screenshot while running, doesn't have the mess up it shows in the pic, just showing the program working and running at 25fps at that instant.

    Yeah...

    I am using stock player for .MP4 files & using this rock divx player for .avi files.

    quality is not 100 percent but it's getting there & looks promising with this player once it gets out of beta.

    they don't have a website? Why is it only available through mediafire and other fileshare sites?

    Looking at OP's post this player still needs a lot of work if it is dropping frames on those videos (assuming the bottom numbers are the playback frame rate).

    It seems like this still needs some work done... I found 1 or 2 other divx players also but they are similar to this ..... I guess its just work in progress.

    Well, for my purposes, it plays porn in xvid format just fine!

    Which reminds me, I need a screen protector, cough cough. :D

    Happy to see that I can at least play one kind of subbed anime file type on my EVO, it's just too bad it's the lesser used format. Also, the quality is AMAZING.

    Example:

    looks a little grainy on the screenshot, but cant even tell it's there while actually watching it on the phone.

    great player it plays all the avi files i have. But mkv files that are used for anime these days are very choppy. If it can play the mkv flawlessly it will be the ultimate player or atleast for me since most of my files are avi and mkv. Mp4 files are pretty choppy, the default player plays mp4 files better.

    I was looking around for a player and tried doubletwist and other players on the market and this one worked great...not 100% clear but 80% :)
