    Hello. Although I've read this forum at times I think it's about time I join. So I did. I had a question this time. I'll poke around and see where I'm supposed to do that. So much to learn even though I've had my Droid since last March. Hardly ever use the computer now. LOVE my Moto Droid!!! :):):)

    There is a "Droid general discussions" section for general questions.. There is also a "search forums" option on this site..

    Welcome to the site! If you can't find what you're looking for, just post here.. I'm sure someone will point you in the right direction.

    Welcome Feathersnpaws I know there is much to learn but believe me if you hang out here a bit you will learn so much. This is the best place to learn about the Android OS. Hope you enjoy your experience I know I do.

    Thank you Killer! I do have a question that I posted but did not get any replies. I have a Moto Droid original with Froyo. I can get video with sound on all the websites EXCEPT Comedy Central. The videos play on the website but no sound. Only on that website. Any idea why? HELP! I need my Jon Steward and Colbert!

    Welcome Feathers! I upgraded to the original droid from an HTC Mogul (Windows Mobile Verizon VX6800) phone so I can tell you there can be a lot to learn. I'm still learning and playing every day with my phone ;-)

    :welcome: to the forum!

    What browser are you using to cruise those sites? Depending on the browser you'll get warnings about sites being optimized or not for mobile use while trying to play a video. The Skyfire browser will convert video on the fly, but I'm not too impressed with the conversion quality. However, as always. YMMV. :)

    I use the browser that comes on the original Droid and tried Skyfire too but it's the same issue ONLY on the Comedy Central Website where the videos have no audio.
