But the 240x180 version should probably play fine on your device, I would imagine it might have a black border on the left and right though? (you'll have to tell me)

Regardless, let us know how these vids I converted work on your 8800...
Both of your videos performed better than my attempts at 320x240. I had already prepared a 240x180 prior to getting the link, so I also tested it. Both your and my 240x180 videos played with no hesitation. Your 320x240 version hesitated at the beginning, but it started playing OK after 30-60 frames.

All of the 4:3 videos play with black bars on the side since the display on the 8800 is apparently 16:9. I stick with my assertion that if 320 pixels is the width, then 180 must be the height. If this is correct, the proper 4:3 size is 240x180, and the player has to reduce the video size on the fly if it is in a higher resolution.

A question on the win32 codecs:
I copied the newest codecs into /usr/lib/win32. Some of the older codecs (with slightly different names) remain in the directory. Should I purge the directory and recopy the newest only? Thanks.
