MPlayer Comes To The iPhone

MPlayer Comes To The iPhone

Posted October 22, 2008 at 11:29pm by iClarified
MPlayer, the multi-OS media player which supports mpeg4, h.264, wmv, mp3, aac, wma, real media, and t-dmb formats, has been ported to iPhone and is now available via the ModMyi.com Cydia source.

Ported by skiman100, MPlayer will read any files in those formats in /private/var/media, and play them back. Combine that with dTunes or the MobileSafari download plugin and video sites, etc - and you've got yourself a pretty solid mobile media device. Mplayer is a great way to boost your iPhone's media abilities.

HI, Will this help me play streaming music from sites that use realplayer? I listen to bbc radio one, and they stream music through real player. I tried doing this on the iphone and it wouldn't let me download it. Any help would be appreciated?

ANYONE: i am trying to figure out how to be able to listen to a live audio stream through mobilesafari that uses windows media player. the website streams the audio using windows media player - any plugins out there to allow me to listen? the site is: finebaum.com --> then i click LISTEN LIVE at the top, safari comes back with "Safari can't download this file".

just create a folder named "media" without "" and put the files there. the idea is great, but i just tested with a sample from american dad. sharp picture, men totaly unsync with the audio.. terrible. hope they are fixing this soon!

Tank you James But do you know how I can make a symbolic link with WinSCP??

Delete the download folder and just make a symbolic link with the name of the download folder that links to the media folder. Is there anything out there that will play .avi??

Anybody knows how I can make via SSH a Alias/Link from the Dowload-Folder from the MobileSafari Plug-In to put it in the Media-Folder from MPlayer, so I have directly the downloaded movie-files from MobileSafari Plug-In in the MPlayer Library to watch?? Thanx a lot!
