    While going through the Galaxy S manual I noticed that mkv video files were supported. I grabbed a backup copy I have of my Avatar Blu-Ray, in mkv format. I chopped it using a muxer to 1gb and transferred it to the phone. I don't remember which specific muxer I used, but it's so that I would t have to re-render the movie.

    I was floored by how gorgeous the movie looks on the 4' screen. Vibrant colors, no lag during playback and very good details. For some reason the audio is not working but my avi audio playback are nice, especially with the virtual 5.1.

    I played with the tone controls and the brightness. By far this is my most impressive media moment with any smartphone.

    What is your most impressive media moment with the device, so far?

    P.S my Droidx and Evo4g coworkers are jealous. I out performed them in benchmarks and the screen "vibrancy" wins by a mile.

    I agree that avatar is the best movie to watch in order to fully appreciate the super amoled screen. I downloaded the 2 gig version of the movie and it works great. I mean, I ripped a 2 gig version of the movie.

    I downloaded an HD trailer of Inception and showed it to my family. They were floored. The colors really 'pop' on this screen.

    What would be the optimum video codec settings for this phone. MP4? Maximum bitrate? Is there any place with definitive specs of what containers and bitrates are supported?

    What are the formats that the Captivate can play? I tried .avi but it wouldn't work. It sucks because I have like 150+ movies in avi.

    Also, anyone know of a good Converter (free) to convert avi to the specified file type?

    Dvd rippers - whats a good free one?

    thanks in advance!

    mp4 works... that's what my copy of avatar on my phone is in

    dvdfab is a good converter but i only have the trial... google it and download. it's free for 30 days

    also dvdvideosoft is a good converter program. about 100mb for the full studio, or 10 mb for the single program, and it's open source. i've been using it for about three years and have loved it. check it out...

    The best way to watch any movie would be not to convert it in away that involves reencoding. Just put the file on the phone and try it first.

    Oh man! I had no idea this was out. How nifty! Thanks for the tip! Also, for the Avatar mp4, did that come with the Blu Ray/DVD combo? :thinking:

    Is there a place a person can just download movies to use on their phone instead of converting existing DVDs? I have bought movies from iTunes in the past but I'm pretty sure they are protected and won't play on my phone.
