    Saw this in a thread in the HTC Desire forum, so I thought I'd post it here. There's plenty links in that thread (articles and blogs), so you can get them there.

    The download link is in post #17 of that thread. After I installed the app, just tapping on a file in Astro didn't give me the option to use "demoPlayer" however. I had to fire up the app, then navigate to the file I wanted to play.

    Works pretty good for an app that's in beta. As usual, it plays some filetypes better than others. I also use "Meridian Media Player Pioneer" (in the Market) for those files.

    Working REALLY great for me. Much better than the Chinese made player or YXflash. So far, the frame rate is good and it stays in sink (even if you seek forward or backword). I have only tried xvid files thus far...

    Glad to hear someone else found it useful. I keep hearing people whining about crappy video support, and yet I don't see a lot of people jumping on this one.

    Does it not like .mp4's? I tried to play a bunch of my existing videos, and they all played really slowly (like 3.5fps), but the audio was fine. Hmm...

    Just a note from one of the devs...

    Doesn't sound like he is pissed that people are using the apk, but he does mention it was intended to be a closed beta (but was leaked)...Just FYI...

    A letter from develop team of Rockplayer - xda-developers
