    So I'm basically looking for an app that I can install on my iPhone, be able to plug it into iTunes, and transfer video right to the iPhone without having to convert anything. I know there was a VLC app that did just this, but Apple pulled it. Is there an app that can do that? I'm running 5.0, not jailbroken. Thanks!!

    Even if you find an app in the App Store, the video still has to be in .mov, .mp4, .mpv format (this limitation also applied to the VLC app that was pulled) and .avi (iPad only).

    The iPhone can't decode any other format.

    IIRC, AVPlayer HD plays about anything I've thrown at it including .mkv files
    At least it does on my iPad2...LOVE that app...

    I've been using GoodPlayer for quite a while, and it plays everything I've tried with it. It gets continuous updates. Not free, but I think $2.99 is a bargain for what you get.

    not sure, but for $2.99, AVPlayerHD has paid for itself many times over...one of the best apps i've purchased and worth far more than the price IMO...

    Yea, I suppose it would be worth the $2.99. Thanks everyone.
