    I'm very curious, what is the best media player for the Droid? Which one has the most video codec's? Converting movies or videos to play on the Droid is easy enough. But to download a video from the internet and simply play it, isn't so easy. And the list of playable's, such as .avi, .dvix, .mkv, .mov, .wmv, .xvid is to short.
    I did some market searchs and foud a couple. I'm gonna try arcMedia, FLV Player and RealPlayer Beta.
    I'd love some advice here. Thanks

    RockPlayer is the one with the most codecs.

    However, videos encoded in the proper MP4 format are played using hardware-decoding, while videos such as DIVX and XVID with RockPlayer are played using software decoding. Hardware-decoding results in less battery drain.
