    Could i have some thoughts on the best third party video player app please, would like to drop some xvids and x264 files on to my Ipad 1 without converting them.

    Thanks........

    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.

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