Do you mean the player controls?

I am planning on checking to see if it depends on the size of the video file.

I say this because on the "Beastie Boys" video the lag was longer between pressing pause and when the video stopped.

The "ABC" video stopped quicker. It was about 1.5MB smaller than the Beastie Boys video.

I suspect the player controls may be more responsive with smaller files.

Then again, it may, as you query, be a matter of the format of the video. But others have complained about lag when playing other formats.

And even more likely, it may be the settings and format I am converting to. As mentioned I used Super C with the default conversion settings for Sony Ericsson. There may be other conversion settings and formats that will eliminate the issues I mentioned above.

I'm just pleased to have the videos working on the Pearl. I'll tweak and fix things later.
