    From the Eris User's Guide:


    Looks like either transcoding (format conversion) or finding a video player app is in your future. Two different converters are MediaCoder (free, but a royal pain in the arse to use), and Android Converter (not so free - $40). You might also want to do a Google search such as "android media players" - there's even a couple of threads on this board about it (mixed results)

    Smartphones are not PCs - remember it wasn't that long ago that an iPhone couldn't open PDF files or play Flash videos.

    If you convert the files to one of the supported formats, you'll have no need for a downloaded video player.

    I am playing around with the Real Player Converter (free edition) and have not had a lot of luck yet. So many different versions of H.264. :thinking:

    Trying the Apple iPod H.264 version now...

    Addition: iPod did not work so well. Have sound but no visuals. So far all the formats I've tried (per the user manual) have been epic failures.

    Addition: I got iPod to work with these settings:

    Format: Apple h.264
    Quality: Automatic
    Resolution: 320x240 (low)

    Format: AAC
    Quality: 128 kbps Stereo

    Yes, just use a free program to convert to MP4 (iPhone) and it works great.

    I think Videora is free too, it's easy as hell to use, and it's real good. Encodes/Converts files quickly.
