Think beeb player has gone from the market as once Froyo is out there will be no need for it as iplayer will work.

Some new apps I've tried below which should be on everyone's 'must have' list!

Rockplayer/Demoplayer - Awesome AVI, MKV, MP4, FLV, 3GP, MOV, ASF, DivX, Xvid, and H.264 player!

FolderOrganiser - Great way to organise all your applications into quick launch folders etc.
