Please let me know if there is any way that I can play long movies on my Pearl.
i think it happens because while player is trying to load the video to play, the screen turns off. and so when you click trackball or press a key to bring the screen on, the video is not playing.

i am able to play movies of 1:45 hrs with no problem. i use mplayer for conversion. all i do is that when i click on movie to play, i move the trackball so that the screen does not turn off. the movie will take a few seconds to load, and then it will be fine. it works for me, you can try it out.
