    without it either crashing it (vlc4iphone) or playing with worse framerate than a damaged dvd (mplayer) (both of which were up to date of cydia).

    I have just had a stressful evening trying all the possible methods of playing this and am fed up, is there a simple avi player or should I stick to converting it?

    The main thing is why would you want to play it on a different player when the stock player is so smooth. Converting is painstakingly simple and takes very little time, for me an average of about 8-10 min for a 20 min episode.

    Better than the stock apple one?!?

    1. I meant AVI players for windows mobile
    2. I wanted to see if it was possible to save me some unnecessary time rather than having to convert the videos. Obviously if avi players are currently terrible then conversion is the only choice.
