How to play movies on my Nokia 9300???

I'm wondering how to play movies (avi, mpeg, wmf) on my Nokia 9300.
I tried to play thse files, but somehow my N9300 cannot find these!!!??

The N9300 comes with Real Player, (although i did not tried to play a RM file, but why should i? because the movies i want to play are in Avi or Wmf)

Is there a add on for my N9300 which enable Real Player (on my N9300) to play these files?

Does someone have a idea??

I do have a question about Smart Movie.
I'm not convinced it's the best. I have downloaded it and tried it. Firstly the file conversion process leaves a movie at around 500 meg. Pretty big imo. also, when playing the movie, it doesnt use the whole of the screen (480*200) or whatever it is. It was just a squared screen a'la normal nokia's screen size.

However, I've used Mobile Movie Maker, and I have to say, it's quite smart. You can depict the screen size you want, and the compresion is almost 10% (there abouts). It worked out 3.7meg for 2 solid minutes, and it played them flawlessly.

Therefore, lets assume a 2hr film, and we multiply 3.7meg by 60 = 222meg

Half the size of the Smart Movie ones.

Anyone else found this, or have any input?

I have found that Mobile Movie Maker produces movies in 200+meg size range. I am a little disappointed that they haven't done much in the way of updating the product. I have a few problems with processing some DVDs and they haven't been helpful at resolving the issues. I'm glad I bought it and it works even at the conversions most of the time but I would have more confidence if they would provide some tech support or updates for the movies that don't work.

Which movies are not being processed? I'll have a look into it myside and see what I can do

To be honest tho, 200+ meg isnt bad for a full length movie. Have you had any issues with the smoothness of play?
