    well I believe android only play's .mp4 video files. You have to convert them to the 854x480 in mp4 ACC video format. I can send you this program for free and give you registration code if you would like. But to watch an .avi movie on the droid it must be converted to .mp4 and also changing it's size to 854x480 will make it full screen so you can use all the available screen space.

    I used handbrake and they play on the X. However, the audio is off from the video, anybody else have this problem?

    From what I understood the x should be able to play divx and avi videos. Which i guess is the case, but for me the audio is far from synced with the video and a couple of the avi's just dont play at all.

    Was I just reading all the reviews before the x came out wrong or where they not saying it could play them just fine?

    the video and audio formats compatible with Droid x:
    Resolution: 480 x 854 pixels
    Video: MPEG4, H.263, H.264, DIVX, XVID
    Music: MP3, AAC, AAC+, eAAC+, WMA, WAV, MIDI

    If your video or TV shows are not Droid x playable video formats, you have to transcode them to the video formats listed above. When you google Droid x video converter, you will find Aunsoft Video Converter is the google recommended program. I have tested it, safe and good.

    hope it helps you.

    I watch AVI files on the DX every once in awhile.. Its usually hit or miss on whether they work or not. Ive had problems pausing, texting with handcent, then going back to the movie though. It makes the sound and picture off sync and can only be fixed by starting the movie over and playing it from the beginning. Really annoying.
