I like to catch up on TV shows/movies etc. while I commute by watching them on my BlackBerry, and I was wondering what the best way to convert AVI/MOV files for viewing on this device might be.

I've been using the BlackBerry Video Converter (http://www.seabyrdtech.com/bbvideo) and it works ok except that the audio playback gets out of sync with the video over a long file.

Is there anything better (windows or Linux x86)?

    Please add your OS and what file format BlackBerry uses

  • It will nag if you want to upgrade after converting, but the conversion process is so dead easy, that you shouldn't bother about the notification
