I have a Sharp PV300GR also know as the Sharp Jump (modified T-mobile Sidekick LX 2009)
I'm trying to put video's on it but it doesn't work for me I always get the notification that the codec or file is not supported by the device.While the T-Mobile Sidekick LX 2009 was no longer sold from July 2, 2010 onwards, modified versions of the device have been available for sale since. In Canada, carrier Mobilicity began selling the device under the name "Mobiflip" and the model number PV300G in late December 2010. In the United States, regional carrier Cincinnati Bell began selling the "Sharp Jump", model number PV300GC, in early 2011. Both devices have a modified version of the Danger OS installed, although any mention of Danger has been removed. This modified OS is independent of any backend service, and the original Danger Web browser, Instant Messaging and Email applications have been removed. The Web browser was replaced with Opera Mini whereas the Instant Messaging clients were replaced with one universal client which also allows the user to connect to an IM service through an XMPP server. There is no email client installed, and there is no Catalog service available.
I can't find information on what codecs I must use (only 3gp and mp4, but not about the codecs itself) the only thing I'm sure about it is that mp4 works, mpeg-4 video and amr audio, but the problem is I can't find a converter that put mpeg-4 and amr in a mp4 file
Here is the video file I recorded with my sidekick (use mpc-hc or vlc or a player like that for codec information)http://www.mediafire.com/?rw33zl6b0xo9vkp

I'm going to test 16:9 now
480x272 16:9 works widescreen without letterbox
3gp and mp4
I hope everything in my one mans thread is useful for people with sidekicks
(I used Ultra MKV Converter, I also recommend Xilisoft Video Converter Ultimate)
Thanks for the help! Now my (New) Sidekick '09 is a bit more useful!
