    I'm sorry if this is an easy find, but I'm having a hard time finding this information.

    Does anyone know what video formats are supported on our phones? I'm downloading AVI's, and wasn't sure if I could play it directly from the phone. Would be good to know before upcoming flights... give me something to do!

    Thanks in advance!

    I know for a fact that you can stream MPEG4 and 3GP. As far as playing another format directly on the phone, you should be able to do it with a good media player. Lots of players out there support a wide range of formats.

    2 quick notes, I like to convert movies to mp4 to save space on my SD card. Plus I use NSW player, it works a bit nicer than stock, plus has a nice picture viewer.

    Hey Chad... what program do you use for converting movies to mp4? I tried using HandBrake last night, and my output file is nowhere to be found, so I was wondering what else was out there.

    FYI, I came across an app that allows for playback of .avi files. Its called YXflash. No more need to re-encode movies to mp4 etc.
