Play DivX, XViD, H-264 and More on Your Android Device with RockPlayer

People have requested this for a long time now, but finally DivX and XViD videos can now be used on almost any Android device. XDA member opensky2 reported about an application called RockPlayer, which was released yesterday. The member is part of the developer team, that managed to create a videoplayer that lets you play almost any video file on Android.

RockPlayer can play most kinds of video files including avi, mkv, rmvb, flv, mp4, 3gp, wmv, mov, asf, divx, xvid, and h264 formats. This version supports android versions from 1.6 to 2.2.

It’s also nice to see that almost any Android version is supported. The application is currently in beta stage and expires on July 15th. This expiration can be removed with a patch, but the expiration date is there for a reason. Although the original download link will lead to an exceeded bandwidth Google Groups site, you can find another download link available at the bottom of the first page of the thread.

You can find more information in the application thread.
