    Hey everyone, I'm new (woohoo Best Buy free phone Friday!) and an Iphone convert. We have several movies on our PC which we previously were able to view on our Iphones. These are digital version movies that were bundled with blu-rays and are .m4v. I am trying to figure out how to watch these on my Fascinate. I have DL'd HandBrake and when selecting the movie under "Source" am getting the attached error. I click OK and it lets me continue, but once I try to start the conversion it just sits at 0%.

    Any advice? Easy tutorials (for Handbrake or any other converter that will get me what I need)? THanks in advance!

    m4v's have encryption you will need to bypass

    ok I've been doing more research, and I'm pretty frustrated... a large part of the reason we got the phones is for the awesome display, but it seems there is no good way to get full movies onto it? The digital copies that come w/blu ray won't work bc of DRM, and there is no site like ITunes where I can download movies, right?

    How does everyone get their movies on these phones? Or do we need to keep one of our IPhones as a movie player?

    I used the same Handbrake you have to convert dozens of DVD's to MP4's. I used something called ANYDVD [3 week free trial] to pair with Handbrake and then converted the ones I wanted to. I'd do 4-6 a night and after a couple weeks [before the trial ended] I was GTG.
    Im not very family with m4v's. But just about everything plays mp4's. So then though avi's are smaller and do play on our SF mp4's are fine. My son has the ipod touch so he can dump mp4's there as well

    Thanks for the advice. So likely though I am SOL for my blu-ray movies since my PC does not have a blu-ray drive, and the digital copies that it came with won't work, does that sound right?
