    Hi,

    The movies have to be in a compatible format to be able to play on your Droid. Most standard MP4 files should play fine.

    Some info on that can be found here:

    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-faq/14858-how-convert-videos-use-droid.html

    After that, copy them to your Droid by connecting your Droid to your computer in USB mode. It will appear as a drive in your "My Computer".
    Just drag the files you have over and once the copying is done, you can start "Gallery" on your Droid and play the files.

    To get started, you can download some clips from my "trailer" thread here:

    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-audio-video/15161-droid-optimized-movie-trailers.html

    The MP4 links will stream when you visit the links on your Droid. the ZIP files, download those, extract the MP4 from them, and then copy them over.

    I will be biased here by saying you should use DVD Catalyst 3, as I am the developer, however, there are numerous threads on video conversion programs on these forums. Just look around in the video/audio section.
    Here are a few links from the first 2 pages.

    Yes.

    1. Install program.
    2. Run program, insert DVD or add video files
    3. Convert video to Droid format (takes a while)
    4. Connect Droid to PC with USB, should show up in "My Computer" as an E-drive or an F-drive or something. Drag file from computer to Droid.
    5. Movie should show up in Gallery, tap to play.

    It might be a good idea to download one of my movie trailers first, and skip to step 4, just to get a feel for it.

    No, but DVD is what most people ask about. You can just drag video files of all sorts and types onto the program. It works with AVI, DIVX, XVID, ISO, VOB, MKV etc.

    I'm pretty sure you are looking for a way to pirate movies.

    Don't.

    Buy them.

    It's legal and problem solved using DVD catalyst or any other program to convert!

    I'm not sure if I understand what you mean with that, sorry.

    Did the program install? Did you already convert your file?

    No I didnt download it. It gave me a warning message saying it could have virsuses and stuff. Im assuming you have a antivirus program that scans it on the paid version right?

    The warning message is probably from your web browser. It always warns when you download a file to your computer.

    Every file I upload for public access on my webserver is scanned by www.virustotal.com This website uses 40+ of the most popular virus scanners, including AVG, Microsoft, McAffee and Symantec.

    Ok well I downloaded dvd catalyst. Now I have a question. Is this program for putting the movie on the phone after its downloaded or do you also download the movie on your computer? If not what program should I use to download the movie? Would limewire work?

    DVD Catalyst converts movies you already have, either on DVD, in which case, it converts the DVD to a file, or from video files you have such as TV recordings or video files such as avi, divx, mkv and such. It does not download movies from the internet.

    To download free movies, you can visit the Internet Archive. They collect movies and TV shows that are out of copyright. Older movies, such as Hercules, Ben Hur, Cleopatra and more.
    Movies
    TV

    For obtaining movies that are recent through the internet, I can not help you. Sharing information about copyrighted material is not allowed on these forums. You can try Google though.
