Does anyone know where to get a video player that plays compressed avi files? I'v tried every player available to me in the market but so far nothing.

you can't, you need to convert to mp4 inoder to watch movies or videos on android. i use Video Player to watch the vids and Handbrake to convert to mp4 handbrake.fr is the website i believe.

Thanks silencer,

I don't really understand why this has to be this way, but I'll take your word for it. I thought it only required some kind of codec to play different kinds of videos.

Thanks again, HandBrake works great.

DivX is a proprietary codec, which means licensing fees for every phone. Don't talk about XviD, it's a knock-off/reverse engineered DivX codec and will never come stock on a phone.

Android != windows - You can't just drop in codecs that the player wasn't compiled with.

Could somebody not port the media player from the new Archos Android device. It plays almost all video formats including Divx and Xvid.

By the way, there is a paid-for app on the marketplace called yxflash which will play xvid and divx, albeit a bit choppy. There is a trial version which will play for 2 minutes that you could try out.

The Archos player would be cool though!

I'm found way to porting xvid on android
But its only a libxvidcore.so
You must write an application to use it, but it's not so hard.

export _XXCFLAGS=" -mcpu=cortex-a8 -march=armv7-a -mtune=cortex-a8 -mfpu=vfpv3 -O3 -Os" (if you have Motorola Milestone/Droid or other device with TI OMAP3430)
export _XXCFLAGS=" -march=armv6j -mtune=arm1136jf-s -O3 -Os" (if you have HTC Hero or other device with Quallcomm MSM 7200A)
or others flags for your device, based on information of his chip.

also you must have cross-toolchain to build it.

cd src/build/generic
./configure --host=arm --target=arm-android-linux-uclibcgnueabi CC="arm-android-linux-uclibcgnueabi-gcc" \
CXX="arm-android-linux-uclibcgnueabi-g++" STRIP="arm-android-linux-uclibcgnueabi-strip" \
AR="arm-android-linux-uclibcgnueabi-ar" AS="arm-android-linux-uclibcgnueabi-as" \
LD="arm-android-linux-uclibcgnueabi-ld" RANLIB="arm-android-linux-uclibcgnueabi-ranlib" \
OBJDUMP="arm-android-linux-uclibcgnueabi-objdump" NM="arm-android-linux-uclibcgnueabi-nm" \
CROSS_COMPILE="arm-android-linux-uclibcgnueabi-" \
CFLAGS=" -nodefaultlibs -nostdlib -fPIC $_XXFLAGS" \
CXXFLAGS=" -nodefaultlibs -nostdlib -fPIC $_XXFLAGS" \
LDFLAGS=" -fPIC -static -s -L$HOME/build/cross/sys-root/usr/lib -lm -lc" --prefix="$HOME/build/cross/sys-root/usr"
cd =build
rm-android-linux-uclibcgnueabi-ld -shared -s -o libxvidcore.so -whole-archive libxvidcore.a

libxvidcore.so - shared library without any dependencies (only kernel!, not libc)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Inform for toolchain
Based on crosstol-ng with gnu gcc + uClibc + kernel sources from your device vendor.
If needed i can post advanced information with sample configs. But i'm have very bad memory - so if you needed advanced howto - please send direct (private) message.
