I have found that trying to convert your videos with the right settings, is more of a hassle than installing the software that COMES with the device. If you have installed the blackberry desktop software, then you already have the media manager installed.

Why not use that which they recommend using? If it's a "I hate Roxio" topic, I suggest you rethink your ... thoughts... Yes, Roxio is a pain in the anus, they have had problems in the past, and I hate their burning software.

However, the media manager isn't that bad, and you can turn off the "search for media" if you want (Media Watcher I think it's called).

Why cause yourself more headaches than you need? I mean, you could potentially put any video you want into it, and it will convert it and you KNOW it's going to work if it does it itself... since it is what RIM has distributed themselves, and know it to work.
