    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?
