Moonshell works pretty well for me. Not perfect by any stretch of the imagination, but fairly solid. It's what I use to watch my Stargate SG-1 episodes when I'm flying somewhere.

Tuna-viDS can produce some decent videos, despite the low framerate. I use the FFMPEG command on his site to convert, using the following command:
Code:
ffmpeg -i %1 -f avi -r 10 -s 256x192 -b 344k -bt 32k -vcodec libxvid -deinterlace -acodec libmp3lame -ar 32000 -ab 96k -ac 1 new_tuna_file.avi

Works fine for me.

Otherwise the only homebrew video player you haven't listed is Spinal's Media Player.

Tracking problems? reconvert your reconvert your DPGs to DPG2 with BatchDPG, that should solve it.
Moonshell does it for me, my only gripe is that I have to boot the whole OS system just for videos, a standalone DPG player would help a lot.

Also, if you've got a lot money and you're picky, get this, it plays perfect MP3 and H.264/MP4 videos.

I have a more suitable device for playing movies nowadays, but when I used my DS, I would simply split a video into 10-20 minute increments and use batch dpg. It makes the lack of indexing much less bothersome

You can you the M3 Sakura Beta test as a movie player, as it works slightly better than Moonshell does, and it's updated DPGenc creates a GOP, which allows you to go to anywhere in the video in less than a second.

Oh, and nitrodude150, I'm in the process right now of converting exery Stargate SG-1 episode into a .dpg file so I can watch them on my DS. I've got about about 20 episodes saved on my DS so far. I loves me some Stargate!!!

m3sakura beta2 is not recommended for video playback.

m3sakura beta2 is designed to stop functioning after about 5 minutes, it will then display an error message.
this is to keep it's great built-in video player to m3real users only.(tough at the moment not even m3real users can really enjoy it)

EDIT: NOOOOO!
beta ended, and now they say it comes out in june >_<
another month of waiting.

i'm curious how a software question belongs in a game/rom hacking sub forum?

anyways: moonshell is the best i've used.
dpg encoding apps leave something to be desired however. moonshell's native encoder often results in bad quality, but i find i have out of sync sound issues with batchdpg. i still have my fingers crossed that ffdshow supports dpg so that i can start to use the mpg mod of vdub to encode.
