I'm about to start converting some media for my X10 (which I should have very soon) and I was wondering what the best video format for the X10 is?

Any advice most welcome thanks.

I was actually hoping to play DIVX/XVID movies on the X10..
Have you already searched for apps to do so?
I read somewhere that YXplayer(?) should work fine.

I haven't bought a X10 yet, I'm sure it wouldn't be dealbreaker, but it wouldn't make me happy either!

@goldenface

You could try out DoubleTwist for conversion and syncing media files with X10 (it looks similar to SE's MediaGo). I believe once it detects your device it will find the best video format automatically (no fiddeling required).

I installed Double twist and its very easy to use. I recognises the phone and its just a matter of dragging and dropping. You can sync all video or just selected ones (the same for music etc).

I'd like to be able to choose video conversion settings, DoubleTwist doesn't seem to offer any options and when I transferred a video it was far too small for the screen

By the way, this site
is quite simply lying! The software has nothing related to the X10 and installs as Videora Android Converter with profiles for the G1 and Magic. All the subsequent conversion settings are low resolution...rubbish

I installed an app called tube grabber that grabs youtube vids and stores them in mediascape. I grabbed a couple of my own HD ones, saved me reconverting for the phone. They are pretty good full screen.

I need something that can convert from avi really.

I've just tried a trial of Nidesoft Video Converter which has actually done a pretty good job. I doesn't have an X10 profile but selecting Xperia X1 and setting the resolution to 800x480 is the best result I've had so far.

Video conversion is one of the biggest ball aches in the whole digital world, why can't someone just make ONE good piece of software

Just use "SUPER". Its free and its the best encoder around. It even lets you set up your own resolution if you don't like the ones available for you.

Here you go. Enjoy!!!

I'd prefer Any Video Converter or Any DVD Converter.
The best mobile phone brand died with Sony Ericsson's death. Shame on you Sony for killing it! And, of course, for ruining the Xperia brand...
