    Drag and drop works. You need to enable USB mode (in the notification) by mounting the SD card. Then you should be able to transfer video. Create a Video folder on the card and copy your videos there. Note that files which the Album player can't handle won't be visible.

    so i tried the whole drag and drop process again to no avail. i dont even see a folder or icon on the phone that would even hint at being able to watch my own uploaded movies. am i missing something here???

    So far I've been able to play .mp4 files, had no luck with avi and wmv. Try creating a folder and name it videos and then go to it via Albums.

    I'm sure there's a shortcut to it that can be accessed on your Home screen or any other screen you want, I haven't had the chance to do so yet, just got the Hero yesterday

    It'll play .mp4 files, but they need to be a particular resolution and frame rate.

    Anyone know any good converters?
