Re: How to play a AVI video file in Nokia 5230

5230 can't play .avi files out of the box you need to install application like smartmovie player or core player to play it. These two, unfortunately, aren't free. A work around is to convert .avi files to .mp4 format using a video converter like Super by erightsoft(google for it).

If a reply has solved your problem click Accept as solution button, doing it will help others know the solution. Thanks.

It should be possible also to install DIVX mobile player.

 

At least it works in 5800 and N97.

 

 


640K Should be enough for everybody

yeah tried once, but that was s60v3 version probably, and playback was not smooth, AV sync problem was there too, in short video wasn't watchable.
