    Hi, I'm new to the forum and have a quick question...it seems that handbrake is the tool to use to convert and install video files for the droid. i own a Droid X and Im trying to convert some files and install them on the X..problem is I've downloaded handbrake from like 4 different sites, and while it installs fine, everytime i try to run, it crashes from the get go. Anyone with the same problem? If not, anyone have any ideas on what i should do? ive tried 9.3 and 9.4 and they both do the same thing.

    Careful. There are some versions of handbrake packed with some nasty stuff.

    Update your codecs (k-lite is what I suggest) then re-install handbrake from the official site.

    There's also DVD Catalyst. The maker of that program is on this forum.
