How to:Converting videos

Nokia 5230 with it's wonderful 3.2" screen is weel suited for watching a movie or short videos.Getting the correct codec,video resolution means a great difference in waching the movies or videos.So i decided to write a post about it.

So with some trial and error i found out the best configuration for nokia 5230.

Note:I used mpeg4(divx) instead of avc because nokia supports avc videos of resolution 240*320.

Also battery drains quicker and x264 encoding is not supported
Max video bitrate i have tried is 2000kb/s but 374 or 768 is recommended.
