It depends on the format and bitrates the videos are encoded with. The V wants H264 MP4 video, and shoots camcorder video at a rate of 2000kbps. Unless you are encoding at a very high bitrate beyond the capability of the Class 2 card, or are using an incompatible format, you shouldn't have issues.
I have a 32GB Sandisk Class 2 card and am encoding H264 video at 512kbps video and 64kbps AAC video with decent looking video playback and not-too-huge file sizes. The native video is 480x320 for the V...if your videos are sized differently and you're asking the phone to resize them, it will also degrade playback.

@TVCSS Thanks for the info.
Do the videos you encode look as good as youtube videos with HQ on? And for us with smaller SD cards or stock cards, do you know of any way to have files stored on a server aka home computer and possibly stream over the internet via 3g? I'm sure there are ways to do it over LAN but I'm not really looking for that.

I've never played vidz from my SD..
Always used VLC Stream & Convert to just stream all my vidz/Tunz from my PC vlc player to phone and never had issues.
Works well on 2G as well.
I know it deverts away from the subject but its the best alternative I have ever found.

You probably won't be able to stream anything of very good quality over the Internet. Because of the bandwidth video files demand, the average home internet connection probably won't work well enough, although you can probably stream music nicely. You need a good upload speed to send the files out at the speed they need to play smoothly.
By all means, post how you do the video...I'd like to see your specifics.

This is the correct answer. I have found that software decoding with rockplayer on higher res xvid videos is choppy .. once I convert with handbrake to the iphone preset (h264 320xwhatev), that the phone supports in hardware mode, it plays back fine.
Basically, convert your videos to a format the phone supports and it will play back flawlessly.
