mPlayer -- the cross-platform, open source media player -- ported to webOS

Sure, the webOS App Catalog lags behind the markets of other mobile OSes -- but the homebrew community continues porting apps to HP/Palm's platform. One of the more recent additions is mPlayer, the cross-platform open source media app.

Ported to webOS by Treo8 forum member Woshíthb123, mPlayer for webOS is far from perfect -- but it's only a first release after all. Playback of Big Buck Bunny on my Pre was jittery throughout, so hopefully development will forge ahead and deliver a more polished app. It's worth noting that other PreCentral users have reported better performance, so it's certainly worth a try on your Palm smartphone if you've been looking for an app that can play a variety of video formats.
