    I am having issues with watching video I already have on my Droid. I can watch youtube but any video that is sent to me or video from a website that isn't youtube it gives me an error message. This started after the 2.2 update.

    Any suggestions?

    You probably need to convert the file to something that the Droid can play. I do remember some comments about this last year when we went to 2.2 but unfortunately I don't know what the fix is.

    I think I found the solution. Use Astro to change the file to .wmv. From what I'm seeing that's all it needs.

    How do I go about changing the file format when it is already on my phone?
