    Hi, I downloaded some MP4 videos (not using Zune, just using the internet). I was wondering if anyone knew how to transfer them so I can view them on my HTC Surround. Does anyone know? Is it is as simple as drag and drop in a video folder using windows explorer?

    no, you can't drag and drop. you have to throw them in whatever folder the Zune software looks at for video, then sync up with Zune.

    Found it in Zune. Under Settings -> Phone -> Pictures & Video -> Manage. Then I just put the videos in the specified folder, and hit sync again. Thanks I appreciate it. Figured I would post the pathway for others.

    I will just assume that files need to be in 800x480 format to be viewed on windows phone? It does not do transcoding on the fly I guess?
