Does anyone know how to do this, or is there an alternative media player that can do this?
I think you are stuck for now. I am not aware of any hacks.
Eventually, if the Pearl has enough of a following I am sure there will be some third party developers who come up with alternative media players, but for now the Pearl is too new and no one has the incentive to develop programs for sale.
It can be done, that's for sure. The Pearl OS is like any other where third parties can develop and sell add-on programs.
You just have to be patient. The Pearl is only two months old. Give it time.
I am hoping they sell enough Pearls so that the user base is large enough to motivate people to create programs for it.
I love this phone and look forward to refinements and add-ons. For example, I'd like videos to play full screen and to rely on pressing keys to perform player functions, such as precise rewind, fast forward, chapters, etc.
