In the same boat. Can't figure out how to play a video. Hope someone figures this one out as it should be fairly straightforward.

Shouldn't it?

Here are the PLAYABLE FORMATS listed on the Motorola Droid page:

AAC, H.263, H.264, MP3, MPEG-4, WAV, WMA, eAAC+, OGG, AMR WB, AMR NB, AAC+, MIDI

I created a folder on the SD card and imported my videos (MPEG-4) from my iPod Touch Library and it works great.

The movies are available in the Gallery.


I use a Mac, and convert videos using Handbrake (HandBrake).

I've tried a couple times already to play vids that I've uploaded to the card with a major problem. First, I created a folder labled videos and uploaded 2 WMA vids to test it out. The videos were present in the Video folders on my phone but once I tried to play them it was very jumbled froze and I had to pull the battery out. I eventually deleted the vids and now I'm hoping for a fix. Has anyone had the same problem?

I discovered by accident that Gallery is where you find all of your media including pictures.

While it plays ipod formatted videos, it seems to have some difficulty with them as they often hesitate.

Things you can do in case you didn't know...

Create folders to keep things sorted. I did this on my SD card.

Video
>Movies
>TV Shows
>Personal

Pictures
>Work
>Family
>Wallpapers
>Cars

Now I get group listings as:
All Videos, Movies, TV Shows, Personal
All Pictures, Work, Family, Wallpapers, Cars

Also make sure you unmount your phone. The phone won't read the SD card when mounted.

You need to pull down and "un-mount" the SD card by dragging down the upper bar, tapping the "USB connected" pop-up and stop the USB connection. This is called "un-mounting the card, just like you should do with any USB device on a computer.
When mounted, the card is seen as a hard drive on the comp and not available to hte Droid if you don't un-mount it before pulling the plug.

It has something to do with the settings. I suggest to try a video using the standard iPhone profile first, and once that works start changing a few settings to make better use of the Droid's bigger screensize and capabilities.

Handbrake has been mentioned a LOT of times on these forums, just do a search for the name at the top right.

Here is a thread that might help as well.
