If you want to convert your DVDs to a video and place them on the X, that's what I do. I use DVDfab. I convert to mp4 with a typical file size of about 200mb per movie. Perfect balance of picture quality and file size. I've found MP4 format to be most friendly to the phone.

DVD Catalyst 4 works awesome for converting DVD's to mp4's. If you are looking for free movies on line...be careful.

This is a warning to all. Posting links to sites to illegally download movies is against the Guidelines of Conduct on DXF. If you do you may be issued an infraction or given a short vacation.

And that will be your only warning.

And subsequent offenses will result in a permanent suspension of your forum account.

I convert my DVD's using Handbrake. It's free and does an excellent job.

Handbrake is great, it's totally free!

yep, another one for handbrake. i use it to copy concert dvds i buy. it will copy by chapter (i haven't figured out how to batch copy). i copy at high resolution for the x, and at lower resolution for my ipod classic. as soon as i get a blu ray player for my laptop, i'll start copying the concert blu rays i have.
but the question was watching movies for free. i've downloaded a couple of apps from the market, they work well and will stream the movies to my big screen via real hdmi (but only if not rooted, i guess). of course the movies are what they call public domain, nothing recent, but they are free, and more are added frequently.

Pogo Plug - its a 50 - 80 dollar device which plugs into your internet router at home. Whatever files you put on it you can stream directly to your Droid X anywhere you have 3G or WiFi. Music, TV Shows, and Movies- really whatever you put on it. This device was a great decision to purchase, you are never without anything from your media collection.

Crackle.com is owned by Sony and is one of the few, free, LEGAL sites where you can stream movies/tv shows online, as well as have an app in the Market...

Yes, I have Crackle on my phone. It works great on the X. Dont pay attention to the comments and bad ratings on the market. Alot of people are rating bad since it doesn't work on their crap phones. It even says in the description that it only works on a few phones. People still downgrade it. It does work flawless on the X though.

I just got my x last week. Thanks for the crackle tip. I'm a netflix subscriber and am thankful not to have blockbuster as my only streaming movie app. I registered with blockbuster just so I could get the free $5 credit. Picked a movie from their on demand options only to find out later its not available for viewing on my device.

Already watched 13th floor for free on crackle. Will probably upgrade soon.

[mod edit] Free to download and has limited, but nice free episodes. Then a subscription gives you access to many more shows. I just watched an episode of the simpsons today :)

I believe there is a legal streaming site called You Tube, or something like that, where you can stream all sorts of video content

DVD Decrypter works well for me as far as converting DVDs goes. But as for putting them on my DX, do I just drop the files in or is their an app that I should get for syncing/viewing movies?

Just drop them on the sd card..

Is mp4 format the preferred format for movies on the x? Or is the a better/different option?

Handbrake does a fine job cranking out an .m4v format, which I believe is interchangeable with .mp4 (but I'm no expert). The devs say avi is dead, I'll take their word for it- works great for the DX. Some discs may need ripping with FabDecrypter before converting or the sequence gets muddled.

to mike in Richmond, I am also in RVA, and since all the smartest people reside here, and you are the only one who gave a positive answer , I'd like to talk to you.

Mike in Richmond, I too am in RVA, and since all the smartest people reside here, and you gave the only real answer to my question, please contact me, as I am a new Droid x owner, and despite the printable 65 page manual, I am a tech idiot, but pick it up quickly. I don't know how to send you a wauy to give you my email address without giving it to everyone on the site. Maybe you can answer that too. Anyway, from one Richmonder to another, HELP!

Not really an app, but if you visit Internet Archive: Digital Library of Free Books, Movies, Music & Wayback Machine (http://www.archive.org), you can stream a lot of older movies and TV shows. Just tap on the MP4 links. Besides video, they also have plenty of free books and other content.
