    I could be wrong but from what I've read the Thunderbolt supports playback of MPEG4 video. I copied a movie over to the phone but the file icon shows up with a warning on it and the video won't play.

    anyone get this to work?

    Same issue. I put a third party app on that would play the mp4, but it wasnt as good as stock droid X. This is really disappointing. I think it has something to do with the media sync. I also noticed when I first transferred movies I had playing perfectly on DroidX, it took a really long time to copy to sd card, and the file size shrunk significantly. I haven't had much time to play around with it, but I am wondering if the sync actually reformats the videos for you. That would be cool. Avi sync to phone turns into mp4?

    I put some movies on to day that were mp4 with no problems. When you click on properties what does it say? Might be the wrong codec

    Sent from my ADR6400L using DroidForums App

    I took mine off. I have them in a backup drive, and properties on windows says 128kbps Is that codec? I made those with dvdcatalyst free for droid x. I used to use handbrake, but it started getting the sync off in the last update. What do you use to convert avi? and what settings?

    hmm

    129kbps is the data rate. A codec would be something like h264 or whatever compression was used to change it from the orginally file. I usually just download torrents that are mp4, or you can covert files to .3pg files which is what all the movies you would record with your thunderbolt would be. I use compressor which is a apple based product but avs video converter or mpegstreamclip are great for converting files. I'll put some more mp4 files on my thunderbolt and see if I have the same issue. In cases like this it is usually something dumb..

    the video file that doesn't work for me was converted using Handbrake with the H264 codec. the video was converted at 720x480 - do you think that may be the issue?

    I look forward to hearing on this. I haven't had any time to test other files. I really liked DVDcatalyst. It was free and simple. But I can use handbrake too. Lets let each other know what the perfect settings should be if we find them. I can't find that many movies on .mp4 or I would torrent them. I usually get avi and convert.

    Download Vitalplayer Neon from the market. It's free, plays pretty much all codecs (MKV, FLV, RMBV, MP4, AVI, XVid, WMV, etc), doesn't crash much, and can even attempt 1080p video playback although it's usually stuttery. It uses the same software decoding VLC uses.
