Why OPlayer can’t play HD movie as build in player?

That’s because we can only use software decoding method, while build in player uses hardware decode(and apple didn’t open it to third part developers).

Using QucikTime plugin, you can play the files you have already converted for your iPhone/iPod, limited file format, but better performance.
