    Default Video formats

    Guys

    I had another question about the phone's capability. Will it be able to play .avi, divx, x264 files directly for streaming to a TV or would they need to be converter first?

    Thx

    H.264 certainly. The others ?
    IMO H.264 Is a better format that the others.

    You know, this brings up an interesting question that I hadn't thought of yet...

    What will I have to do in order to play all my windows media files (audio and video) on the Evo?

    I have been using Windows Mobile phones for years, so a lot of my files are in Windows Media format. Do Android phones play those files?

    There are plenty of converters. Handbrake is a great one (and I mean GREAT). Video quality is second to none, which will be nice with the beautiful display.

    For HD movies i have on my computer in .mkv format, will those be able to play?

    I use, or used to since I'm using Lucid on the desktop, Handbrake for converting everything including DVDs to .mpv
    Started converting to .mp4 even before I ditched WM.

    question.... When I convert 300mb .AVI file to a mp4 file. It comes out 2gb+ and the video doesn't play right (it plays in sorta slow motion). Any suggestions?

    Check your settings carefully. The only time I ever have one come out larger is when the bitrate, video or audio, is larger than the original.
    Surprisingly from my playing resolution has very little effect on actual file size.

    I don't think mkv files will work. MKV is a container kinda like AVI that holds the audio and video tracks. You'll need to use some software like "MKV extract" to pull the tracks and remux them into a .mp4 file.

    I'm guessing your problem is caused by some of the settings on the advanced tab. See my post here.
