    Ok,

    First time poster, please keep the flames to a minimum because I think I'm about to ask a VERY stupid question. First, I've scoured the net looking for this answer to no avail. BUT here's my situation/problem/question.

    I take a video on my droid and it shows up in my gallery. I simply want to transfer the file to my computer via USB but it's saved in a 3gp video format. None of my programs play this, I didn't know if there was a setting to change the default recording format as something else (perhaps .avi or .mov, etc.) If there's no way and you have to take them as a 3gp file, what is the recommended converter program to get them to a format readable by most players? I find it odd that I can send it directly to youtube but can't view it w/ a simple program like winamp from the SD card when it's hooked up via USB.

    Thank YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Both Quicktime and VLC should play 3GP video files.

    So that's always how the video is saved when you record it on the Droid? no option for a more standard camera movie file?

    I have not seen a way to save in another format with the native or Pro5x camera app.

    DVD Catalyst has about 20 different formats that it will convert to and from - this is in addition to reading and converting from a DVD. Most use it to convert other formats to work with the droid but it could be used to convert the 3GP vids from the phone to work elsewhere. I am working on converting the Droid videos (from the cam) to burn, with some luck.

    I used "Any Video Converter" to change formats. Free download.
