    Hello everyone,

    I've jailbroken my iPod Touch 2G yesterday thanks to this forum with the tethered jailbreak (semi-tethered wasn't working proprely <_<).

    I'm currently looking for an application, or applications which would allow me to play videos directly from a very fast server I own. This server contains many videos in avi (mostly XviD) and I can download from it at 500kb/s which should be enough.

    I've found somewhere on Cydia a Safari plugin that allows me to download these videos on my iPod Touch or stream them. The problem is that the "stream" option can only work with the built-in media player. Which doesn't read XviD at all <_<

    Second problem, this plugin doesn't ask me where to save the downloaded file. And because Mplayer can't browse the iPod touch file system, I can't read the downloaded video. Pwned

    In fact I have two questions :

    - Can I stream XviD videos to my iPod Touch with an application ?
    - If not, is there an application which allows me to manipulate the iPod touch file system and so, to move the downloaded video into the Mplayer media folder so I can read my video with Mplayer ?

    Thank you,


    (PS : Excuse me for my lame english)

    Try using TVersity on your pc, although it takes a while to convert videos.
