Default Trouble converting video for Tour

Please Login to Remove!

I am trying to convert some videos to play on the Tour, but am having trouble. They play fine on the computer and in Roxio/DM, but when I copy them to the BB, sometimes it will say "Error" when I try to play, others will play but have no sound and won't let me fast forward / rewind through the video.

I've been using Hand Break to do the conversion. I have tried both AVI and MP4 using various codecs and other settings. I am trying to get the file as small as possible, so I usually encode at 480-320 @ 568 bitrate for video and 48 for audio, but have tried other settings as well.

The only thing that seems to work is using Roxio to convert to an optimized format, but that's very time consuming and I would like to take videos on and off the BB.

Any advice?
