    mp4 is a great format. Samsung Galaxy S plays .mp4 no problem.

    I would say its pretty darn close to the best for mobile devices and to still manage small file size.

    Have you ever downloaded a video from you tube in 720p HD and put it on your phone?

    Here are a couple of links I guarantee will look amazing on your Vibrant.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BTGZiVat52c

    To download the videos to your computer just ad "pwn" without the quotes after the url's www.

    Select "DIRPY" and then select "HD -720p"
    It will then download as an .mp4 file.

    Dirpy Studio Beta: Convert Youtube Videos to Mp3s



    Do the same for the following video files 1-6

    YouTube - Sony Blu::Elements - Forsenses, Part 1/6 [HD 1080p]




    for example www.pwnYOUTUBEURLGOESHERE.com

    Personally I prefer avi files. Not mp4 works just as well.

    Codec (format) of the video doesn't matter. What matters is resolution and the compression level. If you are watching a video with very low resolution (less than DVD res) or one that has been highly compressed, Galaxy S screen cant do anything to improve quality.

    I have transfered few DivX movies, they looked pretty good. As for the resolution anything close or higher than Galaxy S's native resolution (480 x 800) should look very sharp, compression level depends on the codec. For Div X I wouldn't go below 1.2Mbps for standard definition videos.

    @ mell, fix the second youtube video's URL (there is an extra deturl.com part before www. youtube.com, your post is causing html formatting errors in the entire thread.
