    What type of video files will work with droidx,for reason I moved some files that were VLC media file (.wmv) and it did not work.
    What is the best way.
    Thanks

    Use Handbrake to convert them to mp4's and then load them on. That's what I have done.

    mp4 is clearly the new standard for video on these new gen mobile devices.

    Most of my files (~3.5 TB worth) are all .mp4 or .mkv in 720p or higher... They run on the DX, but the bitrates tend to be overkill and performance is reduced. Truth be told these devices still cant handle decoding HD video at those higher resolutions, but I didnt expect them too..

    I also found that most .AVIs that I have are not playing back in sync or smoothly, but most of them are 350mb for ~40 mins and if reencoded to mp4 i can half the file size with the exact same quality.

    Just use handbrake to encode anything to mp4, check to make sure the extension is mp4 and not m4v and ur good to go.

    .wmv files will not work. You have to convert them to .mp4 files threw handbrake, or another program. .wmv files will not work on the droid...

    i used 3gp converter to convert .wmv or .avi files for my windows mobile phone.

    i found out from this forum about a program called dvd catalyst. I downloaded and bought it and used it to convert video files for the droid and it it's super easy. i have about 9gigs worth of movies/shows ready to be used on the droid x. i forgot to mention the format of the video files are .mp4
