The iPad version don't have hardware accelerated decoding which makes it pretty useless since it can't playback 720p .mkv files. So if you want to watch HD content you need to convert it to .mp4 anyway. This is not the case with the iPhone though, since the display is not HD anyway theres no need to watch HD content on it ;)

May be news to people but they are extremely late on bringing this to the iphone. Oplayer and yxflash have been doing a great job. Now I haven't checked the previous 2 for mkv use and I do know Oplayer can act slow on some wmv's. Will try this out too I suppose.

Nothing supported mkv files, but VLC does. Now I can't recall off the top of my head, but did anything support divx files before? I know VLC does divx too, so I won't have to worry about it anymore, but I'm just curious.

Because the iPhone app doesn't support all video types, like divx or avi for example. If you've never heard of the program you'll probably never use it. I'm going to enjoy it because now I can download and play some of the TV shows I watch straight to my iPhone.

This app will help me out sooo much, i have so many hd movies on my computer that i couldnt put on my iphone and now its just been made so much easyer, this app has to be one of the best apps made for the iphone, of course this should already be in the firmware tho...

Yeah, I really don't understand why the hell Apple is so stubborn and doesn't support more video file types.

does this mean we can just throw any kind of video files on itunes without needing to convert it? i dont get it

When you download and open the app it tells you how to add videos. But essentially you're adding the videos manually through iTunes, or if you have another program like DiskAid in which you can add files to your iPhone without the use of iTunes.
