download meridian (free app) or wuzhenplayer (free app (spelling may be off)). those two media players pretty much handle most formats.

Congrats on the upgrade. Not a very helpful post though!

To try to help go back and double check the size you selected as well as any other conversion setting that may or may not be correct. I can usually get all my videos working once I make sure it is all correct.

coworker23: I've never really tried resizing video, but in briefly looking at the Mac version of Handbrake, it has the options to do so. I assume the Windows and Linux versions have the same functionality.
Note: I tried upping the resolution of a select video, but the original format was as high as it would go (meaning I couldn't make it go any higher). So I assume trying to attain your 800x### to 840x### will not work, while the ###x600 to ###x480 will. I'm not even close to 90% certain of any of this, just what I discovered after a few minutes of tinkering with Handbrake's video settings.

If you're looking for an Android based video editor, I can't really help you. Never really tried looking. Sorry.

Hope this helps.

I'd say, a lot of the time, people try to play a format the Moment just can't play.

If it is a format it can play, but still won't play, I would say 9 times out of 10, it is the wrong resolution.
It has to be right.
1 point too much and it won't play it.
The phone doesn't have the ability to "make it fit" it is either right, or it isn't.
so before you put them on your phone, make sure you resize them appropriately.

as a side note, I have also see people have problems with videos that are too small too. I can't confirm it, but from what I've noticed, it has to be an even multiple of 800x600.
that means it won't play it if it is 4768300.
you can't multiply that by anything to get 800x600. so when the phone attempts to play it, it doesn't know where to put anything.
make sense?

Cool

If these videos are purchased from iTunes, chances are they have DRM protection. There are softwares that can remove it but they tend to cost a lot.

I think you need codec to be installed on the phone. What is the format of the video?
