    Arcmedia is also a good videoplaying app. Simplistic and compatible with many formats

    Use DVDcatalyst 4.0 to convert your DVD's to your phone format, use act 1 video player to view on phone. DVD catalyst will transfer the movie to your phone through your charging cable if you plug it into your USB in your computer. I have used this for some time now, I have all three Lord of the Rings, Avatar, Stealth, Knowing, all of the Stargate series and tons more. You can’t go wrong with these two programs even though you will have to lay out some cash for them, it is minimal and very well worth it!

    Vplayer is free, can lower/raise the brightness of the screen and ff/rw with gestures, plays most all video formats without converting them. Whats not to like.

    I tried DVD cat, everything was pretty easy to use. But after I converted and moved to Droid X, it would play, but without sound. Tried numerous times. Any suggestions?

    Tap'n from DX while sit'n by a PC.

    Bump for some help. Really? No one can help? I know I have a thousand + posts and should know this, but I don't. I got very frustrated with it and have up after a half dozen tries.

    Someone give me feedback. Thanks.

    Will vplayer or another player render your transcoded file?

    I have no idea. That is why I'm asking for a detailed description on how to do it:)

    I use dvd fab, it allows me to rip dvds directly to mobile format (avi). Also breaks copy protection and allows you to remove all those pesky fbi warnings. Its also reasonably priced.

    Try this link to a thread in another forum...
    Android and videos, how to get started | Android Central

    I have not personally used Double Twist, but have used HandBrake, and it transcoded Transormers over so I can watch it on my phone... Video and audio sinc perfectly...

    Hope this helps...
