    drag and drop.

    i don't think the droid plays .avi files. there is a media player called KMPlayer, that might play it, not 100% sure though.

    Forgot about the part of getting it on the phone:)

    I made a media folder on my phone, so using astro I see:

    /sdcard/media/video
    /sdcard/media/tunes
    /sdcard/media/clips
    /sdcard/media/pics

    Real Player has a built in converter that converts music and video to almost any format. It even has a drop down in the converter list for Motorola Droid. And if your SD card is mounted when you convert then it wil automaticaly send the video to your Droid when done. And it's free.

    What codec? You might want to make sure that the players above support it. AVI is just a wrapper format and it can contain any of a large number of codecs.
