    Getting this phone soon and I was wondering what kind of video softeware should I get to compress so that I can put movies, shows, etc on my phone. I had something similar on my friends psp but can't remember the name of the software.

    Anyone have any recommedations?

    After weeks of trial and error, forum and general internet research and experience with more video editors/transcoders/encoders than I care to recall, your best bets are Xvid4PSP (for 30fps/29.97fps video) or mediaCoder (for 15fps/14.98fps video). These choices were out of preference for highest converted audio and video quality from a wide range of formats. This was usually an mp4 container with MPEG4 video and AAC audio. A heads-up on 30fps video, though... this is NOT a strong point of the BB. I had experienced WAAAY too much lag in video for it to be worthwhile. I even dropped bitrate to sub-200kbps numbers and lowered audio to 48kbps and a nasty 22Hz sample rate, yet the loss in video quality did not merit the semi-fluid framerate. I would suggest using half the orignal framerate of the source. If you use anything other than a multiplier of the source you'll get noticeable loss of frames. I have a mediaCoder XML profile saved for 512kbps MPEG4, 14.98fps, 96kbps Nero LC-AAC CBR with optimized tweaks for the Curve should you care for it. The video plays PERFECTLY and NO drops in frames or lag in applications/blackberry response (amazing for such a high bitrate)

    I tried 5 videos, but the sound lags like 5 seconds. Its so annoying. I used the bb software to put it on the phone with desktop manager. I also have a 2g mini sd inside so i know theres plenty of space. How can I fix this??
