    I've tried a few different apps but it seems like none of the jailbreak players do WMA well or at all. Am I missing one? Pwn Player is awesome, I wish that one did wma.

    Oh god, why WMA? Convert to MP3 or AAC.

    You're expecting an Apple mobile device to play a Windows proprietary codec. Funny joke. You make lafs.

    I don't really want to convert them all and lose quality.

    You DO know you can change the settings and keep the same quality right? And might even get a Smaller file size. What KBPS are your songs in currently?

    192. I really am not looking to convert I was just wondering if their was a player like PWN player that can do wma. Actually, I think it was vlc4iphone that said they supported wma but the songs sounded like crap... no wma jokes

    They sounded like 28kbps files and skipped.

    Your solution is to either Convert them or get a Zune (Or other WMA supported device).

    192kbps isn't even a high bit rate. You can convert those to Apple Lossless or even MP3 without losing any quality.

    I think sooner or later a jailbreak app is going to come along that can do other codecs. Anybody know if Pwnplayer is still planning to add this to their player? I thought I heard that it was in development but that was in October.

    Get off that proprietary format already geesh. Just convert to 256 kbps MP3 or AAC if you really are paranoid. How long has Jailbreak been out? How much improvement in other codecs has there been? None. And I think PwnPlayer's development has ceased anyway. The developer is focusing on Mewseek Pro.

    I'm not really paranoid about the quality I just have a bunch of wma's and get more everyday and want to put them on my touch. I have a feeling there are other people who would like this capability as well.
