    Getting movies to show up in gallery

    I just got my droid yesterday and am trying to get movies to work with it. My movies were all ripped using handbrake with the iphone/ipod touch setting. They are all in either mp4 or MPEG formats. I have tried dragging and dropping the files into a media folder I put in the DCIM folder. This resulted in the videos showing up in astro but nowhere else, starting and then saying that they will not play. What am i doing wrong that is not letting the gallery recognize my videos like it does my pictures or like my music player recognizes all my music?

    Make a folder called videos on your SD card and put them in there

    I called it videos first...then movies. It is in the media folder I made. I just tried it again, one movie in MPEG and one in mp4 and they showed up in astro, started playing and then said they could not play. No videos showed up in the gallery.

    Are you putting it in the DCIM folder? Don't. Just put it right on the first directory. sdcard/videos if you're using astro. not sdcard/DCIM/videos.

    The mp4 video showed up in the gallery and played fine for 5 seconds. A message saying Cannot play video sorry, this video can not be played showed up. The mpeg video showed up in astro and did the same thing.

    Well, I'd say download a free video player and see if they will play it.
    Some suggestions: Act 1 Video Player (Trial), Meridian, Cinema.

    Double check and make sure you're using mp4s and not mkvs (handbrake used to rip stuff to my touch in mkv so just thought maybe should double check.

    But it sounds like there's something wrong with your rips. Do you know anything about what format, resolution, etc it's ripping in? iPod Touch setting should be fine, but you never know. Are you using the newest version of handbrake?

    Ok, well I'd suggest a few more things and then I have to go to bed. First, as our friend DVDcatalyst the poster says, make sure that the videos play fine on your computer. Then, make sure you do a phone reset / battery pull. Obviously, make sure your SD card isn't mounted when you're trying to play the vids (I don't even think this is possible).

    2nd, download and transfer some of the trailers posted in this thread:
    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/dro...-trailers.html

    See if some of those trailers work fine.

    If they do, try to use the free version of DVDCatalyst the program to rip the same videos you have and see if you have better luck. There is a preset for the droid.

    Tools4Movies, Official home of DVD Catalyst

    Basically, just try to isolate your problem.

    If the trailers and DVDCatalyst rip play fine, then it sounds like maybe a problem with Handbrake. Do a forum search for Handbrake and see what tweaks people have made to settings to get good playback from Handbrake.

    If none of the trailers will play, then I guess you'll just have to wait for someone more knowledgeable to come along. Good luck!

    it got about 10 or so seconds in and the same message came up. So the droid optimized trailers do the same thing the rest of my videos have done.

    EDIT: Youtube is having a lot of problems too, randomly stopping videos in both low quality and high quality.... its as if my droid hates videos all together.
