Nokia 6230 Media Player

Archived from groups: alt.cellular.nokia,uk.telecom.mobile (More info?)

What format video files does the Nokia 6230 support? I am trying to encode
some video and play it back on the phone.

Nothing I have tried works so far. None of the codecs in VirtualDub will
play. Windows Media Encoder (I thought these were MPEG4?) will not play.

Does anyone know where I can get a suitable codec for a PC program (like
Virtual Dub) to encode so the damn Nokia will play it.

Thanks,

-Steve

    Although, sadly, all conversions with the Media Converter will convert
    the soundtrack too high (will distort on the phone at the lowest volume).

    I've e-mailed Nokia about this a couple of weeks ago... hopefully this
    will be fixed.

    And there's no FF or REW in the Media Player on the phone... yet...

    nokia 6230 video files uses .3gp format, which uses the H.263
    codec.

    the easiest way to convert videos is to use the new Quick Time Pro 6.5,
    it can export various video formats to 3gpp which can then be viewed in
    6230.

    however QT 6.5 do no support mpeg-I and mpeg-II muxed files, it will
    only convert the video to 3gpp without the audio.

    in that case u will need to use virtual dub to convert the mpeg to avi,
    full process the audio to wav / mp3, and then put the avi file to QT
    and covert to .3gp

    The sound does sound pretty bad. Any updates yet?

    This is very annoying. I am still on the original 3.14 firmware - any later
    ones support this functionality?

    Also why can't the phone display movies using the full 128x128 screen. It's
    not like its the biggest screen in the world. Having to view at 128x96 is
    pretty tiny.

    No, they have not responded. No suprises there. Ivory towers..?

    I agree about the 128x128 option in Media Player: there is no reason why
    there should not be a 'fullscreen' mode in the firmware to support this.
    I still really like this phone, but there seems to be an 'unfinished'
    quality about some of its features; maybe that's down to the early
    iterations of the firmware..?

    Hopefully, some of the Nokia techs have looked at the 6230 fora on the
    internet, regarding the current perceived shortcomings/bugs of the early
    iterations of the firmware and have set about attending to them for
    future versions. Hope so.
