Default Watch Movies on Droid?

OK so I've read through the forum topic

Put Videos on Droid

I'm not sure if it was just too technical for me but I need a simple answer. Is there an easy way for me to download movies and watch them on my droid?

Free or not, I'm looking for an iTunes like solution?

Sync, Play & Send to BlackBerry, PSP, iPod, iPhone with doubleTwist

Try that.

Doubletwist doesn't help because it doesn't convert the iTunes m4V files so they can be played on the Droid. The question really is is there an iTunes-like product through which you can easily buy movies and TV shows that can be played on your Droid as well as your computer? You can still get music through iTunes as the music is now DRM free, but video is a different story. The ease and convenience of iTunes and it's seamless compatibility with the iPhone are what I will miss most about the iPhone (AT&T's network being what I will miss the least).

Just drag and drop to card. Make a file and call it movies. Go to the apps store and download astro. Then all you have to do is open astro find the file named " movies" and you'll see a list of the movies you dropped in the file and select the movie and it will pay. Make sure the movies are in mp4 format. If the file has an .m4v that's OK cause once you have the movie in the folder you can change it to mp4 by press/hold the actual movie file and select rename.

Maybe I'm missing the point, but who really has the time to watch an entire movie on their phone? Yea, it's a nice feature, but how often do you sit around with over an hour of free time to kill?

I have never had time to watch an entire movie except on a flight, in which case it was quite nice to have my own entertainment.

But I watch bits of them all the time while killing time if I have to wait for my kids when I'm giving them a ride from somewhere, or kill time in other situations.

My favorites are actually Family Guy episodes...

Well if its worthwhile for you guys, have fun with it. I think I'll keep that kind of stuff on my netbook. Between Pandora, Google Listen, and Google Reader I've got more than enough to keep me occupied during brief idle time.

This is the way to do it...I tried it and now it works. However, there is a delay from when you change the file type...you need to get out of that program and then when you get back in it works.

Default It works (but not well). Now what?

I've encoded using Handbrake using the instructions from the other thread (at 800, 600, and 300 avg. bitrate) and every time I play it on the Droid it stutters. I've played it using the default player and the free version of Act 1, but it always stutters.

Suggestions?

I work at Boeing so I have a lot of free time lol no but I play family guy on my droid at work a lot cause its something you can listen to and get a laugh out of without having to watch it. Ive "seen" every family guy episode numerous times by now though, sad I know.

I use Handbrake on my Mac and I rip a DVD and convert it using the "iPod" preset. That's what I was doing when watching them on my iPod Classic. Copied the same files over to the movies folder on my Droid, though, and they look fantastic on there as well.

If Handbrake doesn't work out, I've used Mediacoder for other things and it works fine. plus it's free.

MediaCoder - more than a universal audio/video transcoder

Default Watching movies constantly

@ El Blacksheep

I watch movies on my phones all the time.

I watch them when running on an eliptical machine...
I watch them while taking long car rides averaging one a week...
I watch them every night at work pulling 13 hour graveyard shifts in the hospital where nothing happens and I can watch easily 3 to 4 movies a night.

Nothing like getting paid a sh1tload of money to sit on my ass watching movies or listening to music.

I work in instructional technology. So I've played with converting videos for my job a lot. Handbrake seems to do better conversion than Mediacoder and SUPER. It does an amazing job, even with HD content. I use it to convert videos for my Droid and for the 360 at home.

I posted a lot in that thread about my experience with Handbrake. I'll be happy to answer any specific questions. If you use the iPod Touch/iPhone setting (which I recommend), be sure to change the width to up to 854 (Droid resolution). You want to be sure to use the beautiful screen to its full potential. If I remember off hand, iPhone is only 640. Plus make sure the audio is Stereo.

That's about it. I didn't know Handbrake updated. I'll remote into my computer at home and install it.

As for video players, I recommend mVideoPlayer. It's free and does most everything Act1 can do. It won't fix your stuttering issue, though. No player will as it's either the video itself or your Droid chugging. I had issues with videos on a couple of ROMs (if you're rooted), but it's been smooth sailing lately.

Handbrake hasn't recently been updated (as far as I can tell). Last update I see was last year.

Still works amazing though.

Download astro file manager from the market, and just create the new file I guess on the root of your sd card

Question Droid default player??

What is the default movie player on the Droid? Isn't there some concise, succinct tutorial on how to put on and then watch a movie on the Droid? After all , in a world of Idon't blah, blah, blah Seriously, I'm pretty savvy (sltho by no means a developer) and this has me completely baffled.

Thanks in advance.

I use DVD Catalyst 3. It has 3 settings built into it specifically for the Droid. I just convert the DVD using this program and copy it to a folder I created on the SD card and use Astro to select and play it. I do agree that there should be an easier way to get movies on the Droid, but for me this works.

I showed my boss a movie on my Droid after using this program and he was extremely jealous that his iPhone movies didn't look this good.

I have almost had success with this, but I can't figure out how to change the width to 854, and when I play it on my droid the sound is perfect but the screen is black! What gives???

Sorry, I just rescanned the thread (I love when I read a thread and didn't realize I posted in it).

What program did you use? Are you rooted? What video player?

Default So far...

Ok, so i read most of the posts here, and while there are some good ideas, none of them really helped him much as he had to move movies from his PC to his phone.. that takes time..

If you want to go that way:

DVD43 will allow you to take most DVDs and decrypt them allowing you to make a copy onto your pc without needed a DVD burner, jsut need dvd PLAYER.

once DVD43 gives the go ahead, use Handbreak(like everyone said) to copy the DVD onto the PC using the iPod settings.. this will and does work for the Droid as i have over 40 movies that work on my Droid at this time.. and they aslo work on BBs and other devices as well.. not to mention a nice compressed way to move movies from PC to PC.. we share movies a lot at work.

As for actually streaming movies.. there are 2 different Apps that do it... i can't remember one of them off hand.. but LukLuk (when it wants to work) will give you about 50 movies, that get updated once in a while, that you can stream to your phone.. some are old movies, some are random C and B rated movies.. but they have some Blockbuster hits like Titanic and Independence Day as well.

Good luck All

ummm ...
The guy's question was ... is there an itunes like app where movies can be purchased for droid. I like converting the DRM from all my iPhone files, I like ripping a dvd. Tons ans TONS of apps that were suggested sound great for doing this.
But is there an iTunes like app for droid for purchasing movies?
I mean, I didn't see anyone answer ... is there an iTunes like app for droid for purchasing movies?
and b/c I know some of you are are techies and probably zooted on Mountain Dew right now, I'll just repeat
Is there an iTunes like app on Droid for purchasing movies?

If not, I may just hold on to my iPhone a little longer.

Some Video/TV Solutions:

Flixster found in Market: For $4 per month you get access to a really large selection of television seasons. There's a ton of them. I watched 24, Heroes, and Dexter with a co-worker at lunch over a span of a few months.

I have a 2 links to large mediafire libraries of movies formatted for the Droid. One is formatted for HQ and looks great! But movies are about 1.5GB each and I have a ton of music. I also have a smaller library where the movies are under a GB. Let me know if you want the links and I'll PM them to you. Not sure if I can post them here.

Also, Hulu is supposed to have a premium service coming out for the Droid, I believe Blockbuster does as well. There should be multiple ways to watch movies on your Droid very soon.

Default Watching Movies on your Droid

Go here to download MPG4 movies to watch on your iPod or Droid or other smartphone. No converting necessary. Movies run around $5 each and are generally 500 megs each.

I've been using Any Video Converter Free for a while now with no problems. I've successfuly converted several movies and TV shows to watch on my moto Droid. It can either create a folder for me, usually labeled Mp4 or save to one of my choosing. So far all have worked wonderfully with the stock media player. It's free, works great so far and even worked for a couple other phones and media players.

Too many "One Post Wonders" all of the sudden. I think you guys are fulla shit.
Report me if I'm wrong, or stop spamming this forum! There's a whole section dedicated to apps. Go list your app there.

I got all excited when I got my Ipod to start converting and loading movie. I did about 10 of them and never watched them. I guess at work I mostly work, in the car I mostly drive, in a plane I mostly read (or listen to audio books) at home I have a big plazma. I can live without the video on my phone. I may only hit youtube every now and then if I don't have a computer handy for a quick refresh on some guitar lesson but that is about it. And, that I would still rather watch on my TV or computer.
This is one craze I can let pass by...thankfully.
