Not really sure what the title means, as there are no apps on the Archos called either cinema or dvd - however if you want to know which is the best app for video playback, then it is certainly the default videoplayer app.

The default player is the best you will get on Archos devices... That same thing can't be said about other devices.

The default player has the broadest codec support (supposing you bought the plugin), and has full hardware acceleration. Other players do work, but I would suggest using the built-in player whenever possible. There are some players that can play the video types that aren't supported without the paid plugin though, so you might benefit from having an additional player installed.
