Won't play .mp4 files
Call me a noob...
Did the root and nandroid stuff no problem. I use DVDFab8 to convert movies to "generic.mp4.h264.aac" format, set the resolution to 480x270 (I know not what the Optimus screen is 480x320) convert the file, put on SD card.
Using ASTRO I go to open the file and get "Cannot play video". Does the .mp4 have to go in a certain folder on the SD or is there a better format to convert to so it will work.

I use the gallery or Zimly from the marketplace to play my MP4. They are encoded the same as yours.
EDIT: Did you flash Thunderom or only Root? Some Mp4 aren't working for me now and im trying to find where exactly the problem is.

Only rooted... Tried to put mp4 files in Camera folder so they appear in the Gallery but still will not play. Added Zimly app, still won't play get "It may be DRM protected or unsupported format".
EDIT: Using DVDFab converted video to 3GP and it will play. Quality is not the best, good, but could be better. Will have to adjust DVDFab settings. Works with Zimly and thru Gallery.
Also converted to ipod.mpeg4 format. Looks great and works fine.
