Has anyone successfully transferred a DVD to Torch?

I have ripped DVDs and used Handbrake on the 'iPod' setting to convert them to an iPod friendly format.  These play fine on my iPod so I know the files are good.  I then use Blackberry Desktop Software to convert/import them to the Torch.  While watching the video on the Torch everything seems fine at first, but then the audio and video get out of sync.  By the end of a 30 min show it's completely out of whack and the video starts getting choppy as well.  The problem is exacerbated if you tap the screen in order to pause or ff.  I know the sync issues are not within the video file itself because if you stop it, close out, go back in, and ff to a part that was out of sync or choppy it plays fine for a bit.  So it seems to either be the device itself, like the OS just can't handle video, or the Blackberry Desktop Software can't convert it correctly.  Has anyone found the right combo of software to get videos that play fine on the Torch or is this as good as it's going to get?  Has anyone been able to watch a long video, pause it in the middle, and continue without it getting choppy or out of sync?

Also tried moving the video from the card to the device memory, but no change.

Re: Has anyone successfully transferred a DVD to Torch?

Having the same probs here. I bought a class 4 card, instead of class 2 (the one that came with the phone) I noticed this: when a video is widescreen there are no sync issues. when it's full screen, sync issues, every single time.

I'm thinking the graphics card isn't able to handle the video when it's full screen. I wish the company could fix this! It ruins the entire pleasure of watching vids on your phone!

Might as well get an iphone in this case!

Re: Has anyone successfully transferred a DVD to Torch?

I've been having the exact same problem - but not even with longer DVD videos, regular home videos. As you stated, ones that work fine on the computer and on my iTouch. I've tried loading as an AVI and a pre-converted MP4 - same issue. Very frustrating. Anyone find a solution?
