So I have been looking for a solution to this issue on various forums, and it seems no one has discussed it yet.
I can get videos onto & playback from my Curve 8320 just fine. The issue is the postage stamp sized video centered in the middle of the screen, instead of filling (most of) the screen on "fullscreen".
I take any video file (not importan AFAIK), and hit "copy" (to 8320) in Roxio Media Manager (can't figure out ver# but it's the newest as of 10/2008) and it always puts out 240x180 files onto my SDHC card regardless of "Quality" setting.
While I see a number of flaws in this shoddy program it would be nice to be *able* to use it's AIO layout.
I want the output to be TRULY *optimized* for 320x240 (yes I know black bars will be around depending on aspect) instead of scrunched in the middle of the screen. It is freekin reediculous that this, as of yet, seems impossible for *the* software for doing this process and will likely have to "shop" the varoius 3rd party solutions to find what I need.
(Is this a crummy marketing ploy by Roxio to get us to buy a piece of software from them that *will* output 320x240?)
Thanks for any pointers & insight on this in advance.

I appreciate your input and respect your seniority in these forums. I was about to persue 3rd party options before I posted and will venture down that path with some yet to be determined combination of VirtualDub, AkmeFFmpeg, and Ultra Mobile 3GP Video Converter.
I just wanted to confirm that the consensus has been that Media Manager doesn't, and cannot be made to, function as it should. It's sad that the "official" way to put "properly" formatted videos onto the phone doesn't work as advertised, or offer useful settings.
I guess I will be un-installing the Media Manager version of DM since all it was good for was accessing internal memory (don't need anymore bc of 8g SDHC card)and "easily transferring videos"
- Thank you for your help

Thank you for clarifying/emphasizing my og question.
I have only recently acquired an 8g mSDHC and started playing with video on the BB. (had no card before)
So, I have only used 4.6 (.12 & .14, I think) for DM since. I would switch back to 4.5, but you said it didn't fix the issue.
(Anyone know where a cfg file is to hack 320x240 back into this?)
