    What format are the videos stored in? Not sure if it really matters but I *think* video playback on the phone is limited to certain file formats and codecs.

    What is the extension of the file. .avi, .mp4, etc? Also, what media player do you use on your PC? I ask because you might be able to find out which codecs the video is using from your media player instead of installing a program like GSpot or the like.

    how do you convert a 3g2 file to mp4 so that I can play video on the Incredible and hear audio? (I use a Mac Powerbook G4).

    Give Handbrake a shot. It is an excellent converting/ripping tool.

    HandBrake

    I don't have a 3g2 file to test, but I think Handbrake will recognize it just fine and output it in an mp4 file that will work on the Incredible.

    Also, sorry to the mods if posting links like this is not allowed.

    I noticed the same thing. I then uploaded some videos to youtube and they played with sound there. Odd.

    so i got my responce back from HTC customer service:
    needless to say i was not happy with that responce. I just told them as much. we will see what the next responce is.


    on another front, quicktime for windows does play the the video and audio. so i guess i can enjoy them in quicktime, but i am very dissapointed that the videos dont play in windows media player.

    I ended up breaking down and installing the latest 'K-Lite Codec Pack Full' and now I get sound from the videos. Goofy that it requires a codec download.

    well i just browsed the internet and found several websites that will convert it for free. Luckily i have a multicard reader on my computer so accessing the files was really easy.

    Apple Quicktime played them fine for me on Windows 7. Free download from Apple - QuickTime - Download. Looks like Windows Media Player needs a codec, but Quicktime player does not.

    The video files initially opened fine with both QuickTime Player and RealPlayer.

    I downloaded the Combined Community Codec Pac (CCCP) as suggested (off the record) by HTC support. The video files played both audio and video with Windows Media Player (WMP) after installing the CCCP.

    Just curious... Why would you call HTC if you were having problems playing videos with VLC player? For that you should have gone to the VLC forums and simply asked for help. I can't believe you actually gave this poor CS rep from HTC a negative survey when your problem had nothing to do with HTC and he gave you good advice.

    You need the AMR audio codec (Adaptive Multi-Rate Audio). It's included in the K-Lite Codec Pack (FULL version) for Windows for free here: Free-Codecs.com : Download K-Lite Codec Pack 6.4.0 FULL, K-Lite Codec Pack 6.4.0 STANDARD, K-Lite Codec Pack 6.4.0 BASIC : K-Lite Codec Pack is a collection of codecs and related tools
    After you install the codec for Windows Media Player, you'll hear the audio. I hope this helps!
