    What program are you using on your computer to watch the video? I personally prefer and recommend VLC.

    Nah, I don't think there is anything you could change on the phone that would change the video format. Does the video play on the phone?

    Just convert the video into a different format. I use format factory.

    Icrash, it plays just fine on the phone, Windows media will at least open the video, it just has no sound, vlc can not reconize the format at all. Strange . How would I go about changing the format like the other member suggested. Thanks .
