Heya,

N80 comes out on O2 in the UK on May 15th, and I'm planning on getting one straight away - I envisage using it a lot for movie playback. Can anyone post some details about any encoding they've done from & to what kind of files (extensions, codecs, filesizes), settings, programs used, settings, the actual playback on the device?

Will I be able to watch "24" rips from .avi's in lectures??!?!

Cheers

I've got an anything>3gp converter from Nokia Development but that won't make use of the full resolution on the nokia N80. The alternative I used sometimes for my SX1 was Pinnacle Studio I got bundled with my PC, which could convert anything to .rm which played fine on the SX1.

What extensions will the N80 play? And can you make use of the full resolution, in a full screen mode of whatever the player is?

I use ImTOO 3GP Video Converter - http://www.imtoo.com/. I have been able to convert from every format I've tried (including the MP4 PSP format on Google Video).

I convert to 3G2 format which permits up to 352 x 288 at 512 kbit/s. Personally I encode at 256 kbit/s as I find that's sufficient whilst keeping the size reasonable. About 1 hour of encoded video is 120MB which is not a big deal when you have a large capacity card.

I couldn't cope with 176 x 144!
