    Ok guys:
    I am looking for software to 1) play movies and 2) convert movies. I need to be able to convert any movie file type to whatever will play on a Treo, and play well at that. Let me know what I should get. I hear Kinoma and MMPlayer are good. Let me know. What program converts well?

    I like MMplayer and if you dont want to waste a lot of time, just get Pocket DVD studio for Palm. I do tech support and I still have problems with the manual version of converting. Good Luck

    I fully agree with Darlene. MM Player and Pocket DVD are the way to go. Very easy to install and use and great final result on the Treo 600. i use it all the time. i find it is great for shorter clips like sports highlights, stand-up comedy and home movie scenes rather that watching a complete 2 hour movie.

    I use PocketDVD and MMplayer also, and I have a question: what settings are you using on both? My movies come out good but MMplayer often freezes up during playback and restarts the movies. Any help would be appreciated.

    are the movies worth the time it takes to do that? is it very impressive?

    mmplayer has some sample videos that you can try:

    at the bottom, you want the 160x120 ones.

    I have a pc at work that is used for training...often not being used. I setup PocketDVD, put in a DVD and let it go. It was great when I was on a plane recently and didnt want to watch the movie they were showing. I was able to watch an entire movie during the flight and my battery still have about 60% available.

    I like to use Dr. divx to do most of my encoding, but virtual dub also works with the Divx codec. Use DVDShrink to to rip the DVD and then use Dr Divx. That way you can save your movie on your harddrive and make one for your palm.
