    In an article on this site, titled "Will the multimedia Treo ever exist?" it says that “PalmOne does not even bundle a video player with the Treo.” This is absolutely not true! The Treo 650 comes with a video player that plays not only the files recorded on it, but also plays regular .mpg movies. It’s been able to play every .mpg file that I’ve thrown at it! I’ve downloaded several music videos from file sharing programs and loaded them on my SD card (via an SD card reader), then stuck the SD card in my Treo and was able to play the content straight away with the built in video player on the Treo… nothing extra!

    Maybe the author (and other people here) didn’t know the Treo comes with a video player, but it does! Not only this, but if you’re using the “palmOne Quick Install” software you can drag and drop a file onto your card through there, and it will automatically convert the file to a smaller size for you! I think it reduces the resolution and the audio frequency, and maybe the frame rate as well. One down side of this conversion is that the audio quality suffers a little too much for my own tastes. But if you don’t like the way it converts, you can just put it straight onto your Treo via an SD card reader (as previously mentioned) or download it to the Treo in a different way. The video player built into the Treo works great for me! I just thought people here should know this.

    It's the application that says "Pics & Videos". The standard application for viewing recorded video on the Treo.

    Just make sure the file is in the "DCIM" Directory on your SD card, and it will automatically show up in the your album.

    but what flavors of mpg? 1,2, and 4?

    does it do any other formats? you would think it would do something with quicktime files since camara does quicktime.

    There are 2 ways to instal and view movies on the Treo:

    1. You can drag and drop files into the palm install tool (make sure to drop em into the SD card box). This will convert various formates (avi, wmv, mpeg, i haven't tested others) into something the treo can play. The conversion will also save some space, but this can take some time to convert then sync.

    2. You can also use a card reader and drop off the files into the SD card without conversion (saves lots of time). It seems the Treo will play mpeg and quicktime (i haven't tested others).

    treo650 's Media app QuickInstall and Media desktop is an enhancement version from Zire72's.

    the Media app is supported Mpeg1, Mpeg2, MS standard Mepg4 codec ASF, 3GPP streaming, etc.

    so, u can convert the video file via Quickinstall or use some 3rd Paty converters on PC using correct codec and settings.

    I believe the "Pics & Videos" app is only available on the Sprint 650. For the GSM models, you use the Gallery option in the Camera app.

    It's surprising that people are just figuring this out... I've been using Pics & Videos to play movies on my 650 since I first got it. I agree that it'd be nice if it could play some of the other formats, but so far I'm yet to see a way to play videos in such high quality. Only problem I've sound so far is that the mpegs are generally such huge files due to being an older file format with not as good of compression. To see them in action right away goto http://www.pocketmovies.net/ Or download a music video in mpeg format. It's pretty cool really.

    That is correct. That would be the app with the camera icon. Also, be sure if you have videos on an SD Card that they are in the DCIM folder.
