    Default How to transfer movies to your incredible, Step-By-Step

    Ok, So I saw a few various things of people inquiring about putting media on the phone from their computer such as movies etc., So I figured I would write a little how-to for some of the folks that arenít that computer/droid savey.

    Step one is to download a converter (if your files are not already in MP4 format).



    ^^ Itís free, and it works good.

    Once you have downloaded and installed that, do the following steps.

    Step 1, Add your video content. Click on the ďadd videoĒ that the big red arrow is putting to, Go to the video location and double click to add. Or instead of going to ďadd videoĒ, you can simply drop and drag the file into the large white area.



    Step 2, Choose your format. For the video to droid you are going to want customized MP4 format.



    Step 3, Choose the video frame size. With mine, you can see that Iíve chosen 640x480. I havenít really played with the frame sizes to much, but this is by default what the phone shotís video in so I just went with that for now and it came out good.



    Step 4, Select Convert and let the program do itís thing. Depending on your computer it could take 10-15 minutes, or 45 minutes-1hr. Be patient, eat a bowl of ice cream.

    Step 5, Once your video has fully converted you can either..

    A.. Right click and go to file location, or B.. Go to the converted videos and right click and go to file location.








    So now you have your new completed file completed and ready to be put on your phone. I typically snap the source location file to one side (windows 7) and ill bring my memory card folder up on the other side.

    If you don’t already know, Plug your phone in via usb, drag down the notifications bar, select the usb and select disk drive. After a few seconds your phone will pop up and you will select either the memory card drive, or the phone drive (depending which you are saving the movie to, f for the memory card, or G for the phone memory.)

    Step 6.Create a folder within the phone for your movies like I did. This will keep your phone organized for future add’s. This will also keep things a little more organized in your phone. I saw some confusion in other post of where to drop movies and pictures to make them appear in folders within the phones menu. You simply make the folders OUTSIDE any of the existing files, and the phone will recognize it.

    F Drive:

    G Drive:


    Step 7:
    Once you’ve made your folder, go inside it and snap the frame to the side to make it easier to transfer files, (if you have a lot of them at once.) Snap the other folder that you have open containing the new mp4 that you want to the other side. It’s simply drop and drag from here.

    Step 8:

    Watch your movie.

    Hope this helps some people clear up any confusion, Good luck!

    We are starting to accumulate a plethora of stickies, so I've added a copy of the procedure to the stickied FAQ. Also, these movie conversion threads inevitably end up being spammer magnets, and I usually end up having to close them unfortunately.

    Ill clean up the grammar and make it a little easier to read later. I had to get out to work and was kind of rushing, but wanted to get it up for the antsy minds like myself.

    No but you can easily get around that with other softwares, I will post a link up to some good one's when I get home later tonight (8 or so hours) but in the mean time you could probably just google it.

    Nice tutorial! Are you sure we can play movies off of the SD card, though? I can't even get music to play off the SD card.

    Please confirm. Thanks.

    the video recording options on the phone are mp4 and something called h.263 (not to be confused with h.264). i actually had to look h.263 up. apparently its a codec dedicated to video conferencing...

    anyway, not sure if that's all the incredible plays or if there are more formats it recognizes. i still have much testing to do with this phone...

    Anybody have any tips to get the audio synced with the video. The first one I did is in perfect sync but the last 2 that I have done are now off by about 2 seconds between the audio and video. Any suggestions?

    Try downloading and watching them with Act 1 video player from the Market and see if you have the same issue.

    Also, I personally prefer Handbrake for video conversion.

    It's been a while since I converted a video, but I do remember having the issue you mention above. I think it was a combination of Act 1 and Handbrake that fixed the problem.

    Thanks, I tried both and it worked like a charm. Handbrake seems to work very well!

    Thanks for this thread. I really wish it showed the video file name in the gallery though, kind of hard to tell which video is which.
