Hey fellow Droid X users!!! I was wondering what program is the best program to convert videos for the Droid X. I have seen many post about converting from dvd to video but not video to Droid X video so to speak. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I find most of my Anime's if I download 400p videos or SD videos in AVI format they work by playing them with RockPlayer. Conversion wise try DVD Catalyst or HandBrake

DVD catalyst 3 rips and converts DVDs but it also converts video files as well. It's my favorite. Very easy to use and works well.

ConvertAVItoMP4 - not limited to only AVI conversion. Does most formats simply.

Since AVI is not actually a format. I bet! It is a container that supports formats. ;)

Don't start nit picking me now DD. I'm in medicine not IT for the love of God! I'm luck to know as much as I do (most of that is only because I'm not afraid to play :-)

I know... I know.... SORRY It is just that SOOO many things could be inside an AVI file. Some will play and some will not even if a player supposedly supports "AVI"

I use Rock Player. The avi and mkv containers all play fine without conversion.

Thanks for all the help. I have RockPlayer and that seems like the unanimous winner.

Funny. Anyways, I'm also wondering of a specific format/container to stream all my PC AVI files with XDNA. Seems like it just doesn't like Divx/Xvid AVI. Thanks for the help!
