    I have a Sony digital camera and would like to move some movies it takes at 640 x 480 to my Treo 650. I have moved them onto my G5 Mac.

    In simple step by step instructions, what do I need to do?

    Example: use this software, change resolution to 320 x 240, etc., etc.

    Thanks!

    Are these DV (miniDV) or MPG (microDV) movies?

    These are 640 x 480 MPGs coming out of my digital camera! I have a G5 MAC, a Treo 650 and a Sony T1 camera.

    Hmmm...I think Kinoma Producer should be able to handle that in terms of encoding, etc. Or are you just asking how to get the files themselves to the Treo? If so, the easiest way would be to use Softick Card Export and just dump them over to the SD card.

    Another solution if you don't want to use Kinoma's crappy compression technology is to use PocketDivx Encoder which is free!!!

    Simply resize the movie to something like 320x240 avi and use MMplayer to play...that's it...

    Hi George,

    Most Sony cameras use a non-standard proprietary MPEG format. It forces user to use their "Movie Maker" program that comes with it. Unfortunately, it does not run on the Mac. What you are looking for is called MPEG Streamclip, It converts MPEG-1 to Quicktime (with the audio) and it imports into iMovie perfectly.

    Good Luck

    I think most Sony's still support DV format. Their 'micro' camera have the MPEG format.
