nokia n8 player for movies divx xvid avi flashAnother prowess that these Symbian^3 devices possesses is the support for wide range of video codecs. The most common and widely used today are Sorenson Spark, and the Xvid and DivX codecs which are under on MPEG-4 video and audio compression method. We would see these type codecs mostly from our P2P files like movies and on social site like YouTube. Of course, the benefits of this feature are very essential to every user.

UPDATE inside!

The first freedom that you will have is the freedom from conversion. It means that you don’t need to convert videos as your smartphone’s player will be able to play it.

The second thing that you’ll love is skipping your app-hunting session.  So, forget those player that you think that you will need on playing your movies.

If we would consider the bonus point then it is on the flash support both in browser and player. Viewing youtube videos on mobile web is very convenient but when you got to desktop version it’s quite laggy. But of course, media player supports flash videos that you downloaded from these kinds of social sites.
