    hello, was simply wondering if there is a way of passing the downloaded films from a laptop onto a galaxy s2 GT-i9100.

    Hey Chris!
    Do you mean transferring the films to the sd card?
    Or viewing them on your device? Is that the International version of the S2?

    Hello and welcome to Android Forums, Chris! :)

    It depends on the format of these films, you might have to convert them or use a media player that supports them. We can help you there as long as they aren't bootleg copies of commercial releases. :)

    Not so ironically, illegitimately acquired films are probably the easiest to convert to phones since they use fairly standardized formats with no DRM. :D Funny how that works eh?

    If you need to convert the videos, try looking into the program Handbrake though. They have loads of preset settings for converting video (the settings refer to iDevices, but Androids are compatible with those settings). And its completely free.

    Here is a Getting Started guide. Don't worry the program is not quite a complicated as it looks.

    After you have the videos, just drag and drop to a folder on the SD card. I make a folder called "Videos" just for organization purposes.
