    Still early, but was wondering if anyone might know based on what we know about the resolution and the types of files it will play.

    I use CloneDVD Mobile and Slysoft AnyDVD. Would anyone know the settings within to convert DVDs for playback on this device? On my Storm, I use the iPhone setting within. Perhaps we'll need to use a custom setting in this one due to the high quality.

    Ideas/Suggestions?

    Handbreak i feel is hands down one of the best FREE movie converters out there.

    Rip the movie using DVD decryptor to an ISO and then use handbreak to encode it in whatever format you want.

    I currently use DVDFab Decryptor. The paid version actual has a mobile setting so that you can rip a DVD and convert it to any number of preset mobile devices. You can also customize everything to make it whatever you want.

    I use the CloneDVD Mobile/AnyDVD because I'm not above paying $45 for lifetime upgrades for a product that works perfectly. So, free isn't a big deal. I'm just wondering about settings and I'm going to try to rip a DVD tonight to see if I can get close to that Capture Rate the Droid is capable of.

    I also use DVDFab. Having trouble creating a video. I can playback but get no sound.

    It is an mp4 with a format of h264. Figuring I used the wrong codec. Suggestions on what setting to use would be appreciated.

    I have tried to copy movies to my phone of almost each type listed and I get a message saying Sorry...this video can not be played.

    I am using Panda Home...could that have anything to do with it? Or is there a burp in my Droid that is preventing the playback? Is there a preferred format?

    The Droid can play H264 formatted video encoded using Zune or iPod/iPhone profiles.

    This thread contains information

    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-audio-video/2024-i-found-good-video-converter-droid.html

    and there is also this thread that has info and some links

    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-audio-video/2168-what-movies-your-droid.html

    Spec-wise, the resolution of the Droid is 854x480, and it can actually play files with this resolution.
    DVD Catalyst (www.tools4movies.com) has a few profiles for the Droid that use the proper resolution.
