    I have an i4 and have some videos of which I watch with VLC media player and AVPlayer. I want now to watch these on my 42" HDTV.

    Which third-party video-out cable should I buy? Which Cydia app?

    I know it depends on the video file size but how good will the video output/sound quality on my HDTV be?

    Any help appreciated.

    As for cables - take your pick. There's a cheap ($2 or so) app called ReSupported4 in Cydia which will trick your phone in to accepting cables which are not 'Genuine Apple' branded. I actually bought the Apple cables but you can save a few bucks elsewhere if you want.

    To output to tv - I use the free Cydia one TVOut2 - there's a paid one called DisplayOut which many people use as well. Quality isn't too bad all things considered.

    Like to guy above me said, Resupported4 for any cable to be used, DisplayOut to mirror images onto an external display.
