    oPlayer handles xvids - not sure about x264.

    There's a lite version you can try to see if it would work for you.

    It's frequently updated - works well for me - and gets good reviews.

    XBMC recently got released for jailbroken i-devices. It works very well for local files, play everything I have thrown at it.

    It has the added benefit of being able to stream off your local network and has some plug-ins for internet stuff.

    Works so well I got an Apple TV2 and jailbroke that and installed it also.

    The iPad may well be the most perfect electronic gadget currently on the market. (Yes, that includes the Droid Tablets)
    And yes, if you take it from my hands I will stop breathing.

    I gave up with player apps and just stream stuff now Sure saves on storage.
    Prefer Zumocast but AirVideo is well regarded.
