I (like SO many other people) am looking for a way to encode my videos to be playable from my Droid. I know it's possible, without a doubt, because if you visit Video Copilot on your phone, it will take you to a mobile version of that site (m.videocopilot.net) and you can click on the tutorials link and watch all the tutorials. I got kinda crafty and used a plugin for Firefox to spoof my useragent string so the site thought I was viewing on an iPhone, allowing me to visit the mobile site on my desktop. I fond out that he was simply linking to an mp4 video to play the tutorials. I downloaded that mp4 to my server and tried playing it from there (using my phone) and it worked. That tells me that not only is it possible, but it's a format thing, not a server thing.
I've tried encoding my own mp4's for this, but I've had no luck at all. I've tried using FFMPEG, Sony Vegas, and After Effects. I simply cannot figure out how the heck to get compatible mp4 videos. I suppose I could ask on the forums at videocopilot, but the admin so rarely goes on the forums I'm sure I wouldn't get an answer.
If anyone knows anything about how I might accomplish this, PLEASE tell me. It's very frustrating to not be able to get it to work when someone else obviousy did get it to work.
