I use mplayer under Linux. You can download it for Windows too (mplayerhq.hu). It is a command line app and works great for me. I have encoded some videos and played them on the Curve.
Here is the command I use:
mencoder -vf scale=320:240 <input file> -o <output file> -of avi -ovc lavc -oac lavc -lavcopts vcodec=mpeg4:vbitrate=230:acodec=mp3:abitrate=64
Works great every time.
