    Hi ,there.
    I am trying to add movies to my HTC Flyer so as to watch them on board. I mean my DVD and Blu-ray movies. I know it’s copy-protected but I use these movies strictly for personal use. I own Pavtube Blu-ray ripper, which handles Blu-rays and DVDs. Just not sure which format to use.which format is best ? Any suggestions? What format does HTC Flyer play? :confused:

    It should be able to play mp4 and avi. Use MoboPlayer to play them. Free in the market.

    Welcome to the forum btw. ;)

    I use Blu-ray Video converter ultimate, and choose the HTC Evo 4G format for conversion. Hope this helps you.

    Why spend $50 when you can get DVD Catalyst for $10 and it works flawlesly.

    Also the developer is a member here and a supporting vendor in a few of our forums! ;)

    Anyone want to see how a movie runs that's been converted using the Nook Color "High Quality" defaults? I've converted some 100 of my DVDs to watch on my Nook Color. However, I'm really digging the Flyer, especially the pen input option, and I may buy one when the price comes down a bit (and the pen is included).

    or, spend nothing and use SUPER from eRightSoft, can convert from any format to any format. That includes mkv, avi, wmv, mp4, etc in dixv, h.256, mpeg-2, etc.
    Can also choose screen size, ratio, video/audio bitrate (higher the better), audio format, etc. Hold your mouse over an option and it gives you a proper tool tip explaining every action.
