    I really hate that the only video files that are playable on the touch are mp4, mov, and 3gp. If we can port MPlayer or VLC we could have a lot of more files including, avi, wmv, and my new favorite mkv. I would really appreciate it.

    Apple would never allow this to happen, they don't want competition. Same reason why they are disallowing other browsers (Firefox/Opera)

    I'd love VLC or NicePlayer (For Mac OS X, Beautiful UI)

    But that doesn't make sense then. First, what about jiggy weather? Its a lot better than apples version. Second, what about iphppod or avplayer? And Third, would the player be possible?

    Think about it. Those other Apps and Players were made without Apple's knowledge and permission. They were made without the SDK. But once 2.0 and the SDK fully comes out, you can PROBABLY make your own Media Player with Codecs, but it'll be hard. And Apple would probably find some way to Lock it down.

    And besides, Jiggy doesn't actually create an Application. More of... An offline Webapp that acts like an App.

    If those were made without apples knowledge why can't we just make a port for jailbreaking?

    Personally, I don't think I'm going to Jailbreak 2.0. I like Apple's firmware the way it is.

    Thats the reason why I'm so for the SDK + 2.0.

    Apple Stability + Apps = Heaven.

    Tes, you forgot this was a system of equations!


    Apple Stability + Apps = Heaven
    Heaven = Paid for games - Emulators

    So that would mean:

    Apple Stability + Apps = Paid for games - Emulators
