    Hi
    Is there a way to play .mkv or .avi files directly on the iPhone 3G?

    I know, converting it into m4v or mp4 works, but i'm just curious.
    Would be pretty cool. I know you cant sync them using iTunes, but you could just ssh into it and just copy and paste it into the phone, but is there a program to actually play them then?

    Thanks guyz!

    Anyone please...

    VLC will play avi and I think mkv files. But last I checked playback was choppy. Google zottd, he was the one working on a port to the iphone.

    I can confirm that the .avi playback is unwatchably awful

    lol thanks for the info guyz and thanks for confirming! :P

    Looks like i need to convert them into m4v anyway...
    Oh well.. AVS Video Converter takes time, but does a decent job to convert m-HD ripz into iPhone format
    Anyway, thanks again guyz!

    winavi mp4 converter is pretty fast. it can shrink the files down, so if you want more on your iphone, its cool. you can change settings also
