I have some music videos in avi format. When I copied them onto my 501, they wouldn't play. I get this error message - "Sorry. Something went wrong while playing this file". I have tried to convert the avi files to mp4 files , but still they won't play. Is there anything wrong that I am doing? are there any other video player aside from the stock player for asha 501?

I had this problem and to my understanding, it won't play MP4 unless the codecs involved in making MP4 are H.264, H.263 or mpeg. Choose these in the video codec and it plays MP4 which looks good than 3GP on tiny screen with good clarity.
3GP and ASF are standard codecs that are easy to convert and download online easily.
AVI has some codecs that are different but have not tested it.
Thanks for the quick response. I am using WinFF as the converter and have chosen the codec as MPEG-4 H.264. It still does not pay in Asha 501.
Any other converter software that you might recommend?
