Hi people. If you are so inclined you can download a DIVX file, convert it to mp4, and watch the video all on the device- no itunes or desktop needed. It requires that you download several command line utilities that must be placed in the 'sbin' folder of your device - if you don't have them on your device already. Run the command line utilities using any method you like: e.g. Terminal.app Download a divx (.avi) file from the web using wget wget is a command line utility available from Erica Sadun's webpage:http://ericasadun.com/ftp/PortedUtilities/ Erica you are a hero. Convert the divx file to mp4 or mov using the ffmpeg command line utility. ffmpeg is a command line utility available from the CoreOS iphone webpage: http://wickedpsyched.com/iphone/media Thank you wickedpsyched.com put your file into (var/mobile/or var/root) and rename it a.avi (using mobile finder etc.) use this command to convert it: ffmpeg -i a.avi -acodec pcm_s16le a.mp4 (using terminal etc.) After about an hour or so your new file (a.mp4) will be ready to play. You can play the movie using iphpPod (if you move it into the Downloads folder) or with the playaudio command line utility also available from Erica Sadun's website. It might be possible to play the movie through mobileSafari before it finishes encoding so that you can watch while it converts. Have fun if this is your cup of tea.
