    Hello,
    can anyone tell me the whys and wherefores of downloading content onto my desire?
    The main question I suppose is which formats will it play?
    Will it accept avi?
    Any other tips and advice gratefully accepted.

    It supports basically everything..

    Out of the box it has
    Video supported formats:
    Playback: .3gp, .3g2, .mp4, .wmv
    Recording: .3gp

    So if you want to keep using the normal player I'd recommend using this program: "Encode HD", it has an option for the HTC Desire. Best quality for lowest filesize.

    But you can also download video players from the market, I've heard of one that supports .mkv files. Also, you might want to look into getting subtitles to work in your movies, they're handy for if you're in a busy place. Try "Soul movie", rename the .srt file to the exact same name as the movie file (e.g. James Bond.mp4 and James Bond.srt) and you're ready to go. You can even customize the font size and all that.
