Question Need help-Convert/put movies from external onto phone

So i have a problem, i have a shit load of movies on my external hard drive (most in .avi & .mp4), i would like to put a couple of movies on my phone (Mytouch 4g 2.2.1) to occupy some time at work. i tried dragging the movies from my external and dropping them in my sd card into the folder media>videos; but had no success. Could you please tell me step by step what i have to do in order to succeed at this? I already have flash app installed, that probably doesn't even matter. Im guessing i have to convert the files-let me know please. And thanks in advance.

P.S-if i do how to convert what program/app should i download on desktop or phone. again thnx.

As I searched in Googel, it said that the video player in MyTouch 4G handles a wide range of codecs, including H.264 and DIVX/XVID, up to 720p resolution. Maybe some video with different code and result to your mobile phone can not replay it. Maybe you can try to use ***** free MP4 Converter to convert some can not replay videos to MP4 format with H.264 code, and then drag into that folder to try.

If videos are not playing on the phone, you can convert them using for example Handbrake.
Open the video, select "Universal" present and convert. Then move the converted file to the phone and play there.

How much the resolution and the size of your video? I guess the free RAM is not enough to your application to replay this video. You can try to reduce the size and resolution of your videos and close some running apps. BTW, I haven't used this mobile phone, and I don't know if this app is original media player in MyTouch 4G.
