    Hi guys.

    Just after some opinions on what is the best media players available for the DHD for DVD's?

    Don't have much android experience at all, in fact very little to be honest.

    Look forward to hearing your experiences.

    Cheers

    Lee

    Rock player.

    It's the only media player (I know of) with its own codecs included so it can play loads of different videos. It uses the open source ffdshow.

    I read on the XDA forums it started off as as a VLC conversion. Anyway it's just like VLC on the PC in that you don't need to install codecs to play the videos, it just handles all that itself.

    I was so impressed I went to purchase it, but I thought $10 was a bit steep, if they reduced the price I'd buy it.

    Handbrake.

    Thanks for suggesting vplayer, it seems just as good if not better than rock player.
