    Check out double twist that converts videos to the right formats for android devices. I have not used it on my nexus one yet but I have used it for my Samsung galaxy before and works pretty well.

    When I use my iPhone, I use handbrake to convert anything. Now that I'm using Android, still use the same program. Works well for x264

    Question...when you convert it on handbrake for your N1, what are your publishing settings? I notice that they have options for iPod, iPhone, Etc.....

    Thanks in advance for the help man!!!

    I use my iPhone setting. Android doesn't suppot WMV nor AVI but it supports mp4 which is the same format as iphone. If you wanna change the dimension that works too

    Act 1 Video Player: Encoding Videos for Android: Quick Start

    Also on the bottom it says
    Also check out this thread on Android Forums about optimizing video for Droid's larger screen.

    I would check that link out because we have larger than life screen :eek:

    Thanks...you're the man!!! Definitely appreciate that. I've been dying to put some videos of some of my products I work on...on to my N1. Would be dope to pull out my N1 in meetings and say....oh and yeah here is a full demo!

    Use Handbrake...I just installed it and tried it on my iphone. Loaded 9 files in the past 10 minutes and worked great. About to load it in to my N1....it's simple and straight forward.
