    Xilisoft video converter does a great job at converting movies and videos you already have to play on most phones but it is not free.

    Handbrake will convert videos for you, and its free, and there are tons of guides on here to do it. You can certainly find places to buy a digital copy and convert that. But its REALLY easy just to rip the movie with DVD Decrypter and convert with handbrake.

    Depends on what kind of phone you have, and what the resolution of the file you want to convert is.

    What phone is that? Mmost android phones have a resolution of 800x480.

    If that is your resolution, you want to match the width, not the height. So set the width in handbrake to 480, and let it scale the height appropriately. That way you keep the original aspect ratio and dont lose any of the film.
