    Hello everyone! I'm new to this and the Droid. I have the Droid by Motorola from Verizon.I'm trying to use a youtube downloader to download youtube videos to my laptop and then convert them to AVI files and drag and drop them to my SD card so that I can view them on my Droid. The problem is the files either don't show up on the card when I attempt to play them on the device if they are in AVI format or if I choose not to change the format only the audio is played by the phone so I can't see any video. Any suggestions? I know this is a possibility because a coworker has done this on a BB Tour. I had him Bluetooth transfer some files and those show and play but the ones I'm attempting to tranfer by dragging and dropping the the files aren't working.Thanks, in advance for any help.

    What you need is just a Youtube Converter which can help convert youtube videos to other formats like mp4, h.264 compatible with ipod, iphone, psp and etc.
    According to my own experiences, I find that there is a powerful converter named Moyea Youtube Converter powerful in converting Youtube video clips. With it, if you want to convert youtube videos to Quicktime pro, you just need converting youtube to mov. If you wanna convert Youtube videos to iPod, you just need converting youtube to MP4 or h.264.

    dolphin browser gives you the option to download youtube videos and save them to your card, if you view them in the browser (instead of the youtube app)

    Dolphin Browser is full of win. Try it and you'll soon replace the default browser entirely.

    Actually, asynchronism in video & Audio ofter occurs in encoding AVI to other video format ... the reason is for frame bit. For droid, you could try something called android video converter to convert avi to droid-friendly format MP4, it is already optimized for output setting for Motorola droid ...
