    Thanks, works very well with some .avi files I've put on my phone, no lag found and the picture and sound quality is great.

    Doesn't play .3gp files very well but I've got another player for that.

    Brilliant find :)

    Very good . tested it and the quality is fantastic. The only thing that bothered me was the white 'description' at both top right and left. Hope they will solve that.

    You can remove the top left one by touching the DivX sign, not sure about the bit on the right.

    wow thanks I tried it again and it worked and the right one was showing the FPS and it hid/disappeared after clicking on the DivX sign as you said.

    im sure the text is just for beta purposes for testing and benchmarks, im sure it will be removed or optional in the final version.

    I was getting 25-35 frames per second on an episode of the sarah connor chronicles i just tested on it. very good sound and image sync as well.

    That application is just awesome. Thanks a lot for the post. Does anybody knows how to set it as default video player so that we can play videos downloaded through say Dolphin browser?

    I've still not been able to test, however, I did read that it *requires* a SnapDragon processor... not good news for us 'Legends'.

    It worked earlier,try this one:

    Rock(divx)Player.apk



    Edit:

    If you click on the second link in the original post,scroll down a bit,in the last paragraph there's a bit that says "click here to get the player"

    That's where I got the links from.

    Saw it on another android site yesterday, Tried some DivX AVIs with it very happily on HTC Desire. Also tried a 1080p MKV sample file, It worked amazingly, just very, very slowly. I expect MKVs of 800x480 resolution or less would probably play quite smoothly!

    Really happy to finally see a DivX player on Android that is good quality, syncs sound properly and plays all the files i've so far thrown at it!

    If the non-beta comes to market and costs a couple of $/

    You can put it anywhere. Make a new folder if you like.

    Yes it is currently in beta, hence why it is free and why it may not be perfect... yet.
