    I'm trying to figure out how to watch a movie or video clip on my Treo. I have Kinoma Producer and Player so I know how to watch it once I have it on my Treo. I can't figure out how to go from DVD to Treo.

    Can anyone offer any advice?

    Rip the DVD and convert the movie to a smaller MPEG or avi. file. Move that file to your SDcard and play using whatever player you choose.

    I use TCPMP with various mpeg and avi plugins to play my movies. Also, there are tons of apps out there that rip DVDs. Just do a google search.

    P.S. Get yourself a very large (and fast) SDcard...

    use a program like http://www.fairusewizard.com/ to convert it to divx, copy the divx to an SD card and watch it on any divx player for the treo such as my favorite, tcpmp.

    I kind of like PocketDVD. Never had a problem converting anything. Thought it was easy to configure. Oh well, to each their own.

    You are legally liable from profitting from any material on a copyrighted DVD. So as long as you don't profit from copying the DVD you can use it in any way you want.

    I'm not a lawyer, but have dealt with copyright issues in the past:

    Actually, you are legally liable just for copying the DVD even for personal use (non-profit, no "lending" to friends, etc.), UNLESS you actually OWN a real, legal copy of the original. The letter of the law allows copying for backup purposes only. However, copyright holders have come to accept the right of consumers to choose how (media/device) they use their protected products and are OK with that as long as the consumer paid for the original source.


    By the way, I've used Pocket DVD for over a year now with no problems.

    There are easy freeware programs to use ..

    To go from DVD to your computer use DVD Shrink - DVDShrink is freeware -
    here is 1 site you can download it from below - this program will not burn a DVD, it will only shrink it so you can get rid of subtitles and "extras" - you save that to your computer .... some movies are protected so you can not shrink them - usually Sony - but ive not run into one - - I found if you shrink it to 2000 ( give or take a couple 2100, 2200 will work not much over that though )

    http://www.softpedia.com/progDownloa...load-4128.html

    To go from computer to .avi file is VEMODE - also freeware ... http://www.vemode.corecodec.org - there are settings to tell it you are converting your file for a specific phone, and it will size it correcly for your viewing pleasure as it converts it to .avi - You dont want to make the .avi file much less than 175MB .. ive got a couple at 150 and some spots are choppy ... of course bigger is a little better, as long as you have the space on your card to hold the file

    you can shrink a dvd, and convert it in about 20 minutes or so ... i have tons of stuff i converted for my phone ( for/from my own personal use of owned moveis! lol )

    then just move the .avi file to your phone ... myself i use tcpmp for watching i am sure Kinoma works too
