    Hi Guys,
    Could someone please tell me what I think I already know this app is doing
    to playback AVI files?
    I've only seen it on a friend's iPad because I like the Apple video player.

    It occurs to me that a RAM buffer is filled and converted to a native format block by block as the video is played.
    I'm also guessing the right combination of UI tools mocks the
    stock media player pretty good.

    AVI is just a container format, much like QuickTime's MOV. So, if the codec used to compress the audio/video within it is natively supported, an app might be able to just use the stock media player to playback the content.
