    Try TCPMP which is free and can handle a myriad of formats. Use something like PocketDivxEncoder (http://www.pocketdivxencoder.net/) or something similar to convert your movies

    Most formats are able to be handled. (on my 650 I use .avi (320x240 25 fps) Plenty of threads in these forums on the subject of video conversion and playing video on Treos/Centros. The information applicable to Palm OS Treos is equally applicable. You should be able to play video with a good watchable standard on your phone.

    Remember that there are Windows and Palm OS Treos. That may explain it.

    The gb format is for Nintendo Gameboy ROM files. You need LJP (freeware gaming emulator) installed on your Centro to run those.

    I use DVD Catalyst 3 and CorePlayer. Haven't really seen a huge difference between TCPMP and it's commercial prodigy, but I like paying for things I use. Since I'm on planes at least 2 days a week, my Centro gets lots of video play.

    The difference is in the interface, usability (ahem, NORMAL volume control without having to go into options) and streaming media support (Youtube integration)

    Ah, yes, but since I don't tend to use the Youtube, it's not one of the features I use, so it's not a consideration for me.

    If I were to get deeper into the product, I'd mention that I think the playback and the sound quality is also better with CorePlayer...

    I use the 5-way for volume control in TCPMP. Seems fairly normal to me.

    I downloaded the trial and have been having difficulty with audio sync. Could you advise what settings you're using? Thanks.

    I found that everything I played in TCPMP was a bit off on the audio sync, so I set the A/V sync offset to -200msec in General Preferences, and it seemed to line up better.
