I have a C860 and I want to play video on it.
Currently I have nothing but the original Zaurus ROM in English.

How may I play videos on the default video player?
How may I convert videos to the format supported on the default video player? (I'm a Debian GNU/Linux user)
Is there a way to convert videos to the Zaurus supported video format using mencoder or transcode?
How may I install other more caplable players like vlc or mplayer?

Your answer is inside these forums. Use the search function. There are TONS of posts answering your questions.

I suggest you to install mplayer and then use Kino2 graphical front end.

I also recommend Kino2/Mplayer combination.

I use the following script to encode from DVD and find it gives pretty reasonable quality and not too huge file sizes.

#!/bin/bash
mencoder dvd://1 -oac lavc -ovc lavc -lavcopts vcodec=mpeg4:vbitrate=200:abitrate=112:vhq:vpass=1 -vf scale=320:240 -ofps 15 -alag eng
mencoder dvd://1 -oac lavc -ovc lavc -lavcopts vcodec=mpeg4:vbitrate=200:abitrate=112:vhq:vpass=2:vb_strategy=1 -vf scale=320:240 -ofps 15 -alag eng

By the way, this isn't a typo, you need to run mencoder twice for two pass encoding.

+ You may want to try mplayer dvd://1 first to check that the track you want to rip is actually on title 1. - if you want to convert another file just replace the dvd://1 with the filename. The above script produces a file called test.avi which you can move to whatever name you want.

Hope this helps,

- Andy

Sure there are tons of posts but I could only find:
http://www.killefiz.de/zaurus/search.php?q=mplayer
Is that version of mplayer (from 2002) the most up to date source?
What about Kino2?

Could you point me to the exact packages you are using?

I'm actually using Cacko 1.21b ROM and the version of MPLAYER and Kino2 that ship in that distro.

It works for me and I see no reason to upgrade until the next Cacko ROM ships which will probably have the later version.
