Re: Video formats

I converted a VOB file to AVI which is listed as a supported format.  I syncd the video to my PB using BB Destop Manager.  I also dragged and dropped a copy in the PB's video folder.  When I attempt to play either copy, I only get sound and no picture on the PB.   I can see the video when I open on my PC with Windows Media Player.  Any ideas on how to see the video on the PB?
