Nokia lumia phones video format support

Hello everyone, I have nokia 701 and sony neo v(android phone).

Does nokia lumia phone support video formats like mkv, dat , , . because in my sony neo v android phone it  play any movie formats via third party app. At  same time my nokia 701 only plays supported video formats.

What about nokia lumia 710, 800, 620 phones. can they play all video format atleast via third party app ?


Thanks !

To see what video formats that are supported for those Lumia phones you mentioned please visit the Nokia Developer site for the specifications of each model.

mkv is not a video format really, it''s a container.


There is a good article on video formats here.
