It's unlikely this is "some weird format", since I worked from a 
legitimate source that would have used standard North American video and 
audio formats.  Moreover, as I stated in the original posting, when I 
play it on my regular linux box, it comes out just fine.  It is only the 
N800 that has problems.

More likely it is a transcoding issue.  Possibly for instance the audio 
is encoded in ac3 and the N800 doesn't support it.  I'll have to dig 
around to confirm some of this.  It would help if someone could point 
out to me what codecs are available on the N800.
