    you can watch mpeg4 videos on the Hero placing your video on the sd card (create a folder called videos), then go to albums (under apps), tap videos, tap on your video and it will play through the built in player. no video player apps needed to download

    Thanks for the reply!

    Wow, sounds like a PITA. Does it matter that I tried to open a mpeg video and the hero said "No application exsits to play this file type"?? Wouldnt it have gave me the option to select this resident video player?

    maybe a file type that the built in app does not have a codec pack for. if you dont want to find a player online and if your handy around a computer, just convert the video. the built in app plays a lot of formats. some videos i recorded on my bb tour play on the built in app...

    What video converting program works for the Hero?

    I forget what I used when I had the Pre. I want to convert some TV shows on DVD to put on my phone.
