That my video's from my old phone will play but have no sound?
Came from LG dare...
I noticed this as well, with videos from my LG Chocolate. Fine when I play them on my computer, but no sound on the Eris. It's a video file format issue, as far as I can tell. Videos from the Eris are 3GP files. LG Choccy videos are something else. 2GP maybe? Something like that. Point being, the old files aren't fully compatible with our flash new phones.
Which kinda sucks. I've got a bunch of videos of my kids that I'd like to have on my phone. If anyone knows a way to convert them...
Those phones use .3p2 or something like that. Its some really weird Verizon phone format as far as I could tell, because I had never seen it before. On my Nokia, the video would play but with no sound. On my sister's old non-Verizon LG, the videos wouldn't appear period. Maybe they would work on my RAZR V3, but it has such little memory (8 MB), and transfers files at 5 kB a second, so it takes days to do anything.
I've also tried converting them to MP4 or something more standard, but not even the file converter recognized the sound format, since the video converted, but once again, with no sound. There has to be a way, but I haven't found it out.
Have you ever seen VideoLAN VLC Media player? Pretty neat, plays just about everything, and has several options for converting/encoding.

+1. I love VLC.
