Was there something wrong with the included "Videos" app?

Why not just convert the videos?

For a very limited time, a port of VLC was available for the iPhone; I happened to grab it at that time and still have it. It does a TERRIBLE job of playing those files ... lots of motion artifacts, buffering, out of sync etc etc ... and this is on an iPhone 4, the next to fastest thing Apple sells in mobile devices!

Find a good batch converter that can convert the files while you're asleep and load em up that way ... A LOT less hassle. I mean, if there's really a player that can SMOOTHLY and CORRECTLY play those formats on an iPad/iPhone I'm all ears, but as far as I can determine this hasn't happened yet.

my friend, you are talking about things happened two years ago.
try RushPlayer or AVPlayer, see if you still need a converter...

I certainly wouldn't mind trying them, but I mostly "rip" my movies myself, I don't download them much as that's generally illegal.

But I'm glad to hear there is progress on this front over VLC. It will occasionally play things smoothly, but for the most part its pretty awful.

I agree that converting the files is probably the best idea.

Ha, you are right, i don't watch videos that much too. but it won't do you any bad to have a video player on your device. the performance for rushplayer is ok, no obvious lag.
