Nokia 95 8gb, questions for the brain boxes

Just received my new Nokia today, seems like a great phone but got a few questions.

I have got the spiderman 3 film with it already but is there anywhere where i can get cheap or free films from online?

Similar to the last question, can you get free/cheap music off the internet and transfer it too your phone?

I noticed that the phone searches for WLAN, I know there are some spots in the city where you can connect to these wirless networks for free. Could I connect my phone to these networks without vodafone charging me?


Thanks a million

Re: Nokia 95 8gb, questions for the brain boxes

Nowhere offers a a movie download service for nokia phones yet. It's a big gap in the market that i'm surprised hasn't been filled yet.

Many sites offer cheap music now, you have one of these services in your phones music menu, the nokia music store. You can find slightly cheaper services by searching google. If you are a voda customer check this out: www.vodafonemusic.co.uk/products/musicstation.cfm

A free wireless hotspot is exactly that, free. If you try to connect to a paid for hotspot like those run by the cloud you will be asked to log in and pay. It can never take money from you without your knowledge or direct from your phone bill.

Re: Nokia 95 8gb, questions for the brain boxes

Most movies or videos will NOT play directly into your device. You need to convert them in order to play.

There are some very few exceptions.

To learn more about video and Nseries devices. You can try the Product Support pages here or the Nseries.com

Spiderman or other DRM protected content in your device won't play on your laptop.

Easy peezey! Download the content you want from places like limewire etc, then get the Nokia Video Manager program from the nokia site. Open it, search for files and then transfer the films you've downloaded!

Re: Nokia 95 8gb, questions for the brain boxes

the easiest way imo:

- DVDx
DVD ripping and encoding

-Dr Divx
transcode Videos for Smartphone use

- mobile DivX Player
to watch the videos on the phone

6110-->8210-->6510-->6230-->6288-->N95-->N97-->E7

Re: Nokia 95 8gb, questions for the brain boxes

Nokia Video Manager is slow, sluggish and if your video is longer than 35 minutes you may run into problems like the video stopping and only the audio continuing.

So be aware!

FYI

I have used the Nokia Video Manager with my N95, N95 8gb and my E71. I have put full length movies on there with no problem. The only thing bad I could say about it is it taes a while to transfer them accross, but that just gives me an excuse for a cup of tea and a bickie, lol :smileywink:

Re: Nokia 95 8gb, questions for the brain boxes

well, I don't want to spend one hour for one watchable movie....

That's why I use MediaCoder to transcode the video files and a little adapter to move them directly to my SD card.

This gives me the advantage to encode four videos (MediaCoder allowes numerous instances, so I take one for each CPU) at a time.
This way I get four videos transcoded and moved in less than half an hour.
