    Has anyone got this to work?
    Do you use handbrake?

    I've gotten the ffmpeg4 but not the H.264 videos to work. I just get a black screen with the audio coming through... Any suggestions?

    I'm running H.264 videos on the Incredible with no issues. I used DVDFab to convert the movies. How many fps are your videos? I had the same black screen and audio issues (on Eris) running h.264 videos at 30 fps. When I changed to 23.9 fps. it worked fine.

    Okay I did this last night and put good ole Boondock Saints 2 on the SD and it played perfectly using the built in player... Heres my steps to hopefully help someone else...

    1. Grab Any DVD Converter Pro
    2. Open up the Program
    3. Click Add Video and find the movie that you want to add...
    4. Change Profiles up in the top right corner to "Nexus One" profile which is PERFECT for the Incredible....
    5. Click Convert and wait it out...
    6. Drag it on your SD card and us the default media gallery to find it or use Astro which is free in market place :)

    ENJOY my Droid Brothers!

    Switching to 23.9 fps didn't work =T

    I'm not ripping a DVD. I'm actually converting an AVI file if that makes a difference.

    This is good to know. Thanks!

    FWIW, I haven't tried converting any movies yet but I copied one of my movies from my ipod touch (had used handbrake to encode) onto the SD card and it plays no problem. I did notice, however, a sync issue where the audio slightly lags the video.

    Super C is great for converting videos to other formats. Its free.

    I used Super to convert h264 for my LG Voyager. I found the settings for the Voyager in some forum. I copied the vids to the SD card in the Incredible and they play just fine. Super FTW.

    Ok, I created a Media folder and put it on my phone. In that folder, I have 2 other folders, Audio and Video. The audio folder is where I put my ringtones and that worked as far as ringtones but the .avi file I put in Video is not working.

    Just move the .avi file to where my pics are stored and that will work?

    it does not do avi playback it must be in a different format like .mp4 and then it will find it on your device.... that is why we are providing directions on how to convert to the appropriate playback file type.

    No, the Incredible only supports .3gp, .3gp2, .mp4, and .wmv.

    I use Handbrake to convert DVDs to mp4... but I never was able to get the H.264 format to work correctly when converting other formats to the H.264 mp4 format.

    Nah it a program you run on your PC, and then take the newly converted video and move it to your phone. You wouldn't want to use your phone for video conversion anyway since its very CPU intensive.

    You don't. You have to reconvert the file on your Desktop.
