    Not sure if this was posted or not.

    Great movie player. Plays several different file types without encoding.

    NICE...out of BETA!!! Debating on spending $9.99 for no ads...all depends on how annoying they become.

    It should yeah. I have tried alot of formats and none needed resizing. They all looked good too no matter the native resolution.

    I love the fact it plays flv's.

    Until you purchase it, I guess you have to live with the ads and the initial popup.

    It is 10 bucks which seems like alot for an app, but considering all the file types it plays without the need for encoding it is worth it in imo.

    Yeah i don't mind the ads, just the program says it will activate a free copy with ads' or you can purchase and when you try to activate the free copy it errors and says unable to activate and throws you into the app anyways lol

    Does this app recognize videos loaded into the internal memory? I don't think I saw an option for this.

    This uses FFMPEG, which falls under the GPL. Charging for this software and holding the source code hostage is a violation of the GPL.

    Giving this developer one cent is like slapping the original FFMPEG team in the face for all the work they put into it.

    This may be true, but if he opens the source code, some asshat will probably come in and remove the ads/fee etc and that will be one more developer gone. At the end of the day, you get what you pay for, so that's why I don't mind ads in quality programs.

    just my $0.02. :p

    I suggest reporting the app then, and making note of that in the "reason why" field (there is one, right?).

    More likely than not this would result in the app being pulled (rather than being made free), as the developer clearly wants to make money from it, and therefore won't be giving it away. They'd probably just rework the code to not use FFMPEG.

    Please check FFmpeg license carefully before you ran into this copyright term issue, at least have a glance at their website and GLP/LGPL text. FFmpeg basically uses LGPL instead of GPL!

    I think Bing has it about right, someone complained about use of free code, app was pulled.
    Went to website few days ago was a mention of making player compliant though I really didnt dig to deep.

    It can be downloaded via a link provided on the developers website at h**p://www.anplayer.com/index_en.html

    On your head be it. :)

    New version of Rockplayer is now available on the marketplace. It's universal and doesn't require you to know your CPU on the phone. It also can be invoked via a file manager like Root Explorer so you can now play video stored in the system memory. Sweet!
