    I had an LG Env Touch before the D3 and it played mp4 fine. So I thought getting a DROID phone with a 4" screen would be even better. I have tried almost every 3rd party player and their codec and the movies won’t play in avi or mp4. I am so pissed off I want to go back to my Env. Can anybody help my ,

    Thank You

    BSPlayer Lite wasn't playing the AVIs/MP4s? That's weird because I download stuff right off the internet and BSPlayer plays it without any re-encoding. I haven't used Handbrake in about a year. Here are my settings for the app:

    Video decoding options (SW mode) > Video decoding options > Auto

    Decoding mode > Hardware decoding mode (BSPlayer engine)

    Once or twice I noticed that the phone required a reboot or it wouldn't play video so you might want to reboot and then open BSPlayer.

    The thing is I download these movies from a paid site I belong to and they are movies that are out in the theater or past movies these are not streaming movies. I don't have any problem playing videos off the internet. Also I use ZumoCast app to get the movies off my computer and I have no problem playing them so it definitely is a codec issue.

    I use MX Video Player. It plays just about every codec out right now including all mpeg formats, avi, DiVX. I have had no problem with any video file...

    If you bought them, maybe they have DRM or something.

    What bitrate are they? And are they .mkv's? .mp4 is preferred, mine easily plays 1080p content with moboplayer, and for strictly .Mp4 content I use act one player. Mobo is free.

    I have tried every format but i stuck to mp4. I used the movies i had on my LG Env Touch thinking they were mp4 640X480 bitrate 9000 for video. Nothing plays.

    They are mp4 files i took them from my LG Env and put them on my D3. I have tries all types of file ext. The video bitrate is 1182 frame size a safe 640X480 as that is what my LG took.

    Bitrate of 1182 sounds weird to me. 1182 what? I recommend just using video files without converting them for mobile.

    yeah agreed the D3 has the power to decode non conversions maybe your .mp4's are not baseline and are main profile, the D3 only plays baseline. drag your files in this program and then copy paste the output it gives you here.
    here's an example of what i mean. drag the file into the open program then choose file export then text tab then attach the file here.
