: How to play .avi files (and .mkv, h264, divx)

I thought I would post this in case anyone is not aware they can do so. Sorry if it's a repost but I found nothing in search. I have been using this program almost a month now with no problems (other than the fact it is not a final release candidate and not on the android market still). The main problem is there is no menu. But anywho.

It's a program called RockPlayerBase. If you want to read about it, here (http://www.androidpolice.com/2010/06/21/rockplayerbase-allows-you-to-play-a-whole-host-of-video-files-on-your-android-device/), or if you just want to download it's here (http://www.megaupload.com/?d=3XX6PZKH).

I think I was able to enter the captcha and download on the One, then open it with package manager and voila. If for some reason that doesn't work you could easily transfer it from your computer and run it. I have only tested .avi but it's all I need, it's worked for dozens of videos.

Sure has.  Definitely one of my favorite apps and much better than the Beta version that you are using Hurricane.  you are going to want to download the v7 one for your One.  And not to pub anything Apple on here, but there is an Ipad only app that does the same thing called CineXplayer.  I do not expect apple to keep it in the market long so you better grab it while you can. I noticed that quite a few people on here have Ipads.  Life is so much easier not having to convert movies to watch on my One and my Ipad.

Good to know, I will look for it.


..been looking for it for 5 minutes, I find nothing. All I see is the beta that was released in mid june, what I have now. If you have a link I'd appreciate it but it's not worth spending all night looking for.

Right after I posted that I found it. On some random sketchy looking site. Does this program/developer  even have it's own website?
