Default Questions about rockbox

Well, i havent got my player yet, but i have been playing around with the rockbox windows simulator for around 2 days already, i cant make it to play any videos i try to x_X, ive tried .WMV, .MP4(it reads this as a song but not vid), and was about to try an avi but when i converted the video it came about 33mb, way too much, the others where about 9-10mb.(its a video from youtube so its short, and yes, i have tried with many other vids and still).

I looked around for the format and it says that rockbox is able to play MPEG, but i wonder if is only that one. I saw it here btw http://www.anythingbutipod.com/forum...31&postcount=9

And well, if it only plays MPEG, could you guys recommend me a program to convert my videos to MPEG?
--------------
Another question:
In the simulator i tried to open a .txt file and it worked fine, then i tried to open a .doc but it wont, is there any application, plugin or something to help me with it?
Right in this moment, while im posting this im trying out this application http://www.anythingbutipod.com/forum...ead.php?t=5673 , but well, it doesnt really make the .doc files readable, it just convert them to .JPG, .BMP or .PNG, for now i will stick with it unless someone know how to make .doc files readables.

NOTES: As i tried out the program i figured out that rockbox wont open .bmp images, but it does open the jpg(i love the fact that i can do zoom, and it looks so well). But i can make the .bmp files to be set as my backdrop, so weird. Not that i care much because all my pictures are .jpg, i wonder if this is normal o.o

If you want a good convertor i love mediacoder it works great on videos even has presets for the sansa dont relly use em cuz theyre sometimes flaky for me but still helpful also can be used to convert audio too
