I wanted to download a movie to the phone but I am not sure if there is a player on it.
yes, there is a player built in. Do some searches to find out the formats that are supported and how to get movies on your phone, etc.
I know which foramt to use just not sure where to find the player.
The player is acessed through the gallery. Open the gallery and select videos.
Alternatively, download Astro from the market, navigate to your movie folder on the SD card, and play them from there.
There are also Video players available for download in the Market if you don't like the stock one.
I created a folder on the SD card entitled "Movies". When I launch gallery, it shows the standard "Camera videos", and "All videos" which combines the videos from the phones camera and my movies folder, and there is also a "Movies" collection, which is only the files I put into my folder. It does not show the names of the movies, but shows a thumbnail - usually of the logo of the distributor, i.e. Fox, Paramount, WB. I am assuming it takes a thumbnail from a few seconds into the film.
I would love to find an app that displays the movies with their file name.
Video Player is what you want.
Act one video player is the one u want.
Try using Astro File Manager, then use nswPlayer for a clear video, without lag
