For the uploading to your blackberry, easiest way is to connect your Blackberry, set it to be in "Mass Storage" mode (UMS), and drag'n'drop the file in your \Videos\ folder on your blackberry (you don't need the Desktop Manager to do that).
For the conversion of the video, I have discovered a free and open-source program called AKME FFmpeg (ugly name, but user friendly). It can be downloaded here : SourceForge >> AKME FFmpeg .
there's only one screen : choose the file to convert, choose the Blackberry (for example Blackberry Curve 8300 400kbps), choose the destination filename, and choose the ratio if need be (for instance some youtube FLV videos are defaulted to 16:9 instead of 4:3). then one more click and the conversion begins. I like mp4 : better quality than 3gp, and can be viewed with a regular Media Player like VLC or Windows Media Player.
hope this helps.

question: how should I have the settings if I want the audio and video to actually be sync'd? I used the akme software to convert an MPEG to an MPEG4 (a rock video) and the audio is about two lines ahead of the video. I think I just need to adjust the settings some how, but not sure what to do to fix this.
The video plays perfectly as an MPEG before it's converted.

you have to modify the video after it is converted into mp4. I use Virtual Dub (it's free) on my PC.
Please keep me informed!

Xandrex, thank you for trying to help me, I appreciate it.
I tried to load the MP4 into virtual dub and it said "MPEG-1 contains an invalid frame rate (0)." Any ideas?

it is strange. What is the framerate you chose when you first created the mp4 ? Usual values are 15fps, 25fps, 29fps, 30fps.
can you install G-Spot and see if it sees something strange ?

when audio and video lose sync, it can mean three things :
I was using 15fps, but that was what came up when I selected the output file format as blackberry curve 400 kbps. Should I increase that?
