Direct Downloads to Nokia Video Manager

Published by at

Nokia Video Manager has been updated to version 1.5 and now supports the direct download of videos. Videos can be downloaded from the web via special links (nvd://) directly into Nokia Video Manager making it easier to get videos on to phones such as the Nokia N95. Metacafe is one site that supports this functionality and we've added it to All About Symbian too. Read on for more.

Metacafe is one popular video sharing site that has implemented this functionality. All videos in its Producer Rewards section can be downloaded directly to Nokia Video Manager. I have also implemented this functionality on All About Symbian.

There is now a Nokia Video link for each of the videos in our media section. Following / clicking on these links will launch Nokia Video Manager and automatically download the video in question ready for transfer to your phone. In order for this to work you must have the most recent version of Nokia Video Manager installed.

Add your own links 

If you want have your own videos (e.g. those you have published on a blog) you can add similar links in the from of hyperlinks with the format nvd:// The format should be playable by modern S60 phones (e.g. H.263 or H.264)
