I normally use TCPMP to play videos on Pocket PC phones, but since the Shadow integrates Windows Media Player so well into the interface, I want to try it out. However, it doesn't seem to be able to play .avi files. Specifically, those encoded with Xvid.

Anyway to change that?

I converted some of my movies into WMV, but that increased the file size substantially.

That surprises me. I wouldn't expect WMP to play .mkv or .ogm movies, but certainly .avis, including encoded with .xvid.

Have you installed TCPMP on the Shadow? That should install codecs capable of playing xvid.
