    No just do a Google Search. You have to run it on your PC. After you install it, run it and add your avi file and select Motorola Droid for the video player device. Pretty simple program.

    Once it completes the conversion, you will have to connect your Droid to the PC, mount and transfer the file(s)....obviously. You can then go to gallery and open the video with the default player.

    That may be the semi-English version, but theres a new chinese version 4.1 of the player at
    WuzhenhuaPlayer.apk ... at uploaded.to - Free File Hosting, Free Image Hosting, Free Music Hosting, Free Video Hosting, ...
    It runs much more smoother and allows the ability of full screen mode in landscape.

    I should of added that OOTB the Droid does not play AVI files.
    Act 1 will play them and it's only $5.00

    Not all apps are free.

    So I looked at both of the apps listed in the above post, yxflash, which has apparently been renamed yxplayer, and act 1 and in the comments of both of them people say they wish they played avi files. I just want to clarify that they actually do before I drop plastic on one of them. I want to play avi files. Not buy another media player when I can get one for free.

    Have you looked at the post before the last one you are referring to?

    There is a free player (with a difficult name)that does play avi files.

    Wuzhenhua Player
