    There seems to be no info on whether the EVO will play .avi videos or not...does anyone know if it does? I dropped a few on the SD card and used file explorer to open it, but it said it cannot play it. Please don't tell me I have to convert it to some proprietary format....

    no. .avi usually means divx. most phones play mpg (h.264 codec)

    I have yet to hear of a video player in the Market Place that plays .avi's ... so yeah, you're going to need to convert it.

    Search the EVO 4G board .. there is a thread or two on a few popular converting programs.

    Mp4 is not a proprietary format.

    VideoLAN needs to put out a VLC player for Android.
