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
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,
im sorry to say but nokia 305 asha does not supports AVI, MP4 nor WMV it plays the sound but not the video. So what do we have left now to try. After a thorough research I am planning to write a blog on this, so that people know what is in store for them

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

2.click on (Edit) in the topmost bar

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