There is not yet a definitive answer for you - I've been asking RIM tech insiders for months - but I can give you some starting points.
You'll want to do an MPEG 4 encoding to fit the 480x320 screen, of course, but the wrapper & bitrate info is going to take trial and error. You may have better luck with MPEG2 or DIVX and compromised screen size until they get better with publishing a spec.
But here's one route that may help.
Open the Media Player, then the menu and select Explore, then the menu again, then Show Hidden, then System, then Samples, then Videos, highlightBlackBerry.mp4.rem.
I don't know - but others might - of any way of snagging a "Forward Locked" file for analysis by other programs, but figuring out how they encoded that baby will tell you how to make your own work play gloriously on a Bold.
