    Ok, I've looked everywhere and it's probably quite simple. Not as simple as labelling the damn thing frames per second.

    What adjusts this in the Dr. DivX Profile Editor?!?!?

    Also, as I understand it, Dr. DivX will not grab files directly from a DVD. This does not seem to be worth $50.

    OK, I am stumped. I bought both Pocket DVD. But I cannot get it to reflect an option for 160x160; not even 160x120. What am I doing wrong?

    Also, I was able to successfully load a *.avi onto my Treo. But, how do I find it on my SD card to delete it. When I go to "Delete" view the card does not show any files.

    Thanks for helping...obviously not much experience with SD cards...

    I believe that when you pick the 160xN, it automatically scales N based on the aspect ratio of the movie you're converting.

    Use FileZ it's free & easy.

    When running Pocket DVD Studio on Win98, if I attempt to pull up the Setting->Advanced Output Setting menu it crashes because of an "Illegal Operation".

    Anyone else have this problem, or can others get the Advanced Output Settings?

    There isn't a preset; you'll have to choose one of the other PDAs to start. (I used a Tungsten). Then, you'll see the "output dimension" listed- click the Change button, and there are sliders in there You'll want to maintain aspect ratio- TV shows will be 160x120.

    Another simple option is to use Kimona producer / player. Around $30. I've found it pretty good, no hassles.

    Make the Movie 272 x 160 and scale down with MMPlayer, or PocketDivXEncoder, or some freeware software.

    I wanted to bump this up for the 650 people.

    I understand the options are:
    1. Use Kimona (not quite working on 650) - Costs $$

    2. Use mmplayer - however, you need to encode the movie first - you can use either:
    a. PocketDivEncoder - COsts $$$? and Virtual Dub
    b. Pocket DVD - Costs $$$
    c. Some other free option that you use to rip the cd to avi, then use virtual dub to break down to size.

    Anyone care to share what they have done... I only did this a little bit on my Treo 600 but it took forever to encode and the quality was bad. Now that I have a 650, I need to consider if this is now a viable option. (Especially for converting TV shows from my PC , right now using Sage TV and Hauppauge 250, but would consider switching to Beyond TV) if that is easier.

    I'm trying to figure out if I can make this work with my system. My laptop doesn't have a DVD player. Can I download a movie from the internet and transfer it to my Treo 600? If so, how do I do it? I'm definitely a neophyte, so I'm looking for all the help and tips I can get.

    Thanks,
    Susan

    Fyi, there is now an updated (and not yet publically released version of Kinoma Producer 3 now:

    http://www.kinoma.com/k3/download.html?rel=11

    However, you cannot use the mpeg feature in the trial...

    Also, when using Kinoma producer 2, try encoding use the Tungsten E setting etc. It probably doesn't know yet that the 650 exists!

    Also, here are some uesful links:

    PocketDV Encoder is free afaikafaikafaik:

    http://divx.ppccool.com/langue.php?lang=EN

    It will let you encode any vid to mobile format. You will need mmplayer etc to play it.

    http://mmplayer.com/

    There is also another encoder called Dr. Divx that does cost money. It's kinda pricey, but seems to do what it says and may be easier for newbies:

    http://www.divx.com/divx/drdivx/

    To rip DVD's directly to your Palm, you need PocketDVD:

    http://www.pqdvd.com/watch_dvd_on_palm.html

    Then there is also Smartmovie:

    http://www.lonelycatgames.com/mobile...martmovie.html

    However I have read mixed reviews regarding this software...

    Finally, for those of you who want a bit more features, there is always VirtualDub:

    http://www.virtualdub.org/

    It's the not easiest to use for newbies, but very powerful. Fortunately, there is an interface called Jobmaker that helps making VirtualDub easier to use:

    http://www.mmplayerjobmaker.tk/

    Finally, the 650 apparently has a builtin 3GPP support. I recall readins somewhere that there was a quicktime player for palmos that supported 3GPP?

    kinoma 3 knows the 650 exist.

    but, you can't convert a dvd using it. you need to decypt the dvd first? right?

    I want a player that doesn't use device ID for registration. Unfortunately, most of these programs don't warn you before you pay for the registration. It is a big deal to me because I have registered a lot of 3rd party software and have replaced my Treo 2 times in 4 months.

    Anyone here know if Kinoma uses the device ID?

    Why isn't anyone trying Kinoma? That has been a good player for me for pretty much any system I have had

    af far as i know, you already have to take the step to decrypt the dvd into a format that kinoma can convert.

    Yep. Also, I find that once formatted for Kinoma, my movie files tend to be 2x larger than the ones I set up for MM Player.
