    You should be able to flash the fixed Video Playback ROM to your emmc. It is now available at the OP of the xda thread.

    http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=960537

    I like my Phiremod v5.1 so I choose to put the fixed Video Playback ROM on a sd card.

    I am also thinking that when the April update comes out, I would like to keep a rooted version of the B&N update in the emmc with an sd card version of Gingerbread, cm7. This will allow me to read newspaper and magazine subscriptions.

    Details of the general procedure I used will be posted here.

    I found that my flash 10.2 is really smooth. I have tv tuners in XP pc with the Orb application. The flash 10.2 android playback of the tuners is silky smooth full screen with audio in sink from mycast.orb.com web page on my nook color. I have the user agent for Dolphin mini browser set to desktop.

    I went to crackle.com. Visited my test movie 3:10 to YUMA. It is not optimized for mobile. It plays with some choppiness. But it is better then in any of my previous ROMs.

    Booted, still no market.. Odd. Can't connect to WiFi either, not even the hotspot phone sitting 4 inches from the NC. Outlook not so good so far.

    Finally got it to hit my hotspot (that just sounds dirty, doesn't it?) and got looged in to Google.. Market is there now. Still won't hit my company's WiFi though.

    Another thing I notice is missing: Button Savior (or even its lowly cousin, Soft Keys..)

    Just booted up a fairly large version of Avatar and the video is smooth and perfectly sync'd.. Same video was very choppy and pixelated, not to mention about 3 seconds off on the audio, on Phiremod 5.1... I think I'm in love =)

    Just tried Youtube and it's, well, perfect, even in HQ.. One other happy sidenote: my previously completely useless Bluetooth is now working. yay! Also, I tried connecting to my work WiFi using my phone, and it can't connect either, so I'm not blaming that on this ROM.

    Very promising so far, many thanks =)

    Is the video any better than what it is with Nookie Froyo. The video on Nookie Froyo seems to be pretty close to in sync. If it is better, then I will flash it, but only if there is a big improvement. I have found Nookie Froyo in the last few days and I like the better battery life on it. I may just wait for them to fix the battery before switching to this unless there is a good reason..

    I am still having trouble with local video for mp4 players. I have not found a player that works using hardware decoding for mp4. yxplayer Neon syncs with mp4 but it software based and in action scenes micro blocks. I do have an sd card version of Froyo. I will go back and take a look at it later.

    Edit: use the link to see my post 19 for the best solution so far

    I have been using a receiver through the headphone jack and bluetooth from my cyfi bluetooth wireless sports speaker. Both seems to buffer and stay in sync. Before hardware acceleration bluetooth cy fi with internet applications seemed to buffer a lot but stay in sync where the receiver did not buffer much but was out of sync.

    I find that the TV Shows Stream (Lite) app seems to work really well.

    in my nook yes it looked better than froyo .68 - however even if it was not as good, it is at the very least better than 'good enough' plus the BT support alone makes it a double winner for me

    Thanks to dalamchops over at xda for suggesting mobo as my player for local video!!!

    In particular my mp4 file with Video: avc1, 848x480 and Audio: mp4a, 48000Hz, 2Ch, 153 Kbps work great with it. No other player seems even close.

    I side loaded mobo_1.0.129_v7_neon.apk however it would not work until I changed Default Using Soft-Decoding to a check mark. It does seem to work the best. I might have to restore Eclair and compare. Easiest to play files by using File Manager.

    When you launch it the skip is hard to work and next step button does not work, easier to use back in android bar at the top, then use the tool icon at bottom to set Default Using Soft-Decoding to on. Since VideoRedo TVSuite recorded the parameters and slower kbps rate the Soft-Decoding works.

    Google mobo_1.0.129_v7_neon to find it.

    When flashing this, is clearing caches sufficient? Or does data need to be formatted as well?
