Nokia Asha 305 - Video

 

I use Nokia Asha 305, trying to install a good Video player like VLC or quick time unable to... Please advise what video player can be installed on this device and what operating system does it run ? Is it symbian ....? Suggest a good video player to play mp4  video files. The inbuilt player Is not capable of playing all types 3 gp , Mp4 or AVI files!!

 

P.S Forgive me if  I sound blunt, I am new to nokia smart phone:smileyhappy:

Re: Nokia Asha 305 - Video

Hi vijayakanth,

 

Thank you for your post and welcome to the forums!

 

The video player on the device is the one that is part of the phone operating system, which is Nokia Series 40. Nokia Asha 305 media player supports the following video formats: 3GPP formats (H.263), ASF, AVI, H.264/AVC, MPEG-4, VC-1, WMV. Unfortunately VLC is not available for Nokia phones, and at the moment there is alternative video player you could install on the device.

 

We would advise you to approach this issue from another angle, and transcode your video files to the supported file formats. This is because "normal" video files are usually optimised to be viewed on a monitor or a tv. There are many different applications available both for Mac and PC, just search online for "video transcoder". 

 

Hope this helps,

 

Puigchild

Re: Nokia Asha 305 - Video

It can play 3gp and mp4 but i prefer mp4 format beacuse the quality of sound and video is much better I also have nokia asha 305 and i play high quality videos by converting through any video converter avc it's free and u can convert mp3 files too. I convert in:  

 

VIDEO OPTIONS

Codec:mpeg4

Frame size:320x240

Framerate:20

Bitrate:512

Encode pass:2

 

AUDIO OPTIONS

Audio codec:aac

Audio bitrate:128

Sample rate:44100

Audio channel:2

 

 

These settings are the best for sound and video quality too.

 

If u want full screen then what u have to do is:

1. first open the avc 

2.click on (Edit) in the topmost bar

3.click on (Options..)

4.then click on (Video) 

5.after that go on (Video Resize) and unmark all (Fit to Width) and (Fit to Height)

6.Enjoy full size video on your asha 305 smartphone

Re: Nokia Asha 305 - Video

I use Youtube Video Downloader to download and convert videos on my 311, but I'm sure the videos will play too in 305, just hit the video type as mp4, it'll play fine, crisp, and perfect.

my phones are 3120c, 303, and 311.
