    I want to watch movies on my LG Optimus. I downloaded a couple of different players and tried watching a .avi file. The video was fine, but there was no audio. Tried extending the buffer, but it didn't help.

    Anybody got any advice?

    Yes. It didn't work. Same problem. I only tried the trial version, though.

    download MediaInfo on your pc. Open the video file in that, switch to Tree view, and copy the results here. I can tell you whats wrong with it then.

    Different devices have different hardware and therefore different abilities to handle various bitrates and formats.

    And you can't just go by the filename extension. That's the container and doesn't tell you about what codecs are used... or what options of the myriad of available settings per codec were used.

    All you can do is try and see. If a video doesn't work, you need to transcode it on a computer into something easier to digest by your specific model device.
