    I'm looking to have my ipod touch configured so as to play .avi divx etc.

    Is there a way to do this currently?
    Its prob the only reason i want to jailbreak my touch 16gb.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    I noticed that a private beta of VLC is out, but would want something a little more stable/official.

    cheers

    Nope, VLC is the only way.

    No idea. Last I heard VLC was freaking awful. I convert all my movies before I put them on my iPod.

    no probs,

    cheers mate,

    might be the way to go anyway, save all the trouble and instability, and just have to convert them.

    You're welcome.
    I recommend Handbrake, it's a solid conversion program. Plus, you can queue lots of files, and just leave it going over night (if needs be).

    VLC isnt the only option.
    I've tried VLC and mplayer for this on my touch 2G and
    mplayer is a really good effort for divx
    Definitely blows VLC out of the water.
    it's not perfect by any means (occasional video hiccups, doesn't hold where you stopped viewing...) but hopefully updates can make it better.
    Easily the best option for this kinda thing, and a good alternative to converting too. Give it a shot
