    I cannot get these type of videos to play. I even converted them to just mpeg and wmv, and they wont even open. The .mp4 plays audio but not video, the screen is just black. Any ideas?

    DVIX? I don't think the phone has the DVIX codec.

    DIVX is a codec that goes on top of .mp4s.

    No. There are hundreds of different codecs that people use for .mp4 shell files. The phone supports H.264, H.263, AlAC, WMA . DIVX happens to be the popular one when you DL unlicensed material off the internet.

    If it plays properly on your computer I highly HIGHLY recommend that you get HANDBRAKE and save the file using the portable device preset.

    I have a movie in DVD quality right now on my Droid but it's too high of a resolution to watch. Like you I only get sound. But I have a low-rez version that's in a format close to my Droid's resolution. Works perfectly.

    What exactly do you mean by "already stored"? You'll have to transfer the file to your computer and convert them, then put them back on your Droid. If not it increases the conversion time.

    Is that what you mean?
