    Hello all! Are there other video files that work on EDGE other than the DPG format? Is there a way to get mp4/avi/wmv/etc to work? [​IMG]

    The container format (AVI/MPG/MP4/MOV) is only part of the video's type.
    • Container
      • Video Codec
        • Resolution
        • FPS
        • Bitrate
    • Audio Codec
      • Channels
      • Sampling Frequency
      • Channels
      • Bitrate
    If any of those parts is "out of bounds" for a specific player, then the video file won't play on the player, even if it's of the correct container type. When you use a converter for a specific platform (such as for the PSP or DS or ipod) it doesn't convert just the container, buti t formats every part of the video to certain specifications so it'll play properly, which is partially why it takes so long to convert.

    So just suck it up and deal with the long conversion times to DPG. ^^;
