Mallikarjun, 16 Feb 2010This will never happen until nokia phase out 5800xm from market Belive me...i am nt jokin..its true
Nokia could give a capacitive touchscreen to make this phone close to perfect at this price,though handstet is quite good

Surya Singh., 15 Feb 2010@Emir aaaaahhhhh .... Mp4 (XviD) ..... that is where your problem is. Nokia 5230 just cant ... moreBut it is mp4!! dam! i just chose xvid codec! when i wanna play music videos with same settings as i did with movie,everything is ok! and phone play them great! maybe i mess up something lol! and good night for you! 4am is late! but good night for me too (11:50pm here) ! :)
Emir, 15 Feb 2010Friend have u tried to play big video file!? becouse my phone cant play big mp4 file! i am not... more@Emir
aaaaahhhhh .... Mp4 (XviD) ..... that is where your problem is. Nokia 5230 just cant play avi, XviD or DivX and even High end Mp4s because of licensing.... Nokia never bought a License for any of those & as a matter of fact they have actively blocked these plugins through a combination of hardware IDs & Plugin IDs. Thats the biggest reason why we havent seen a single software for 5800 or 5230 that could play these file formats.
So for you to be able to play a converted video you have to convert the video such that the format is supported by the phone. So it can be ....
Video Output: .mp4
Video Plugin to use: mP4 (H.263 or H.264)
Video Scale: 640 x 360
Aspect Ratio: 16:9
Frame Rate: 25 - 30 fps
Bitrate: 600 - 800 kbps
Other: High Quality & 48k Audio
Audio Plugin: aac / aac+ / aac lc
Bitrate: 90 / 112 / 128
Using this kind of setting you should very well be able to play a High Quality Video on your Nokia 5230.
Its 4:00 AM & now I need to SLEEP.
Bye n GOODNIGHT (for me) --- Goodday to you.

WOW ...... It was just the First day of Mobile CONGRESS & we already have a New Version of Ovi Suite v2.1 & after installing it we get 5 more updates of which 2 being the most CRITICAL ---- Flashlite v3.1 & Python v2.0.
Although I had already installed the Flashlite 3.1 before release I didnt want to talk abt it here cause I didnt want people to follow my suite and end up having a DEAD Mobile & end up Abusing n Cursing me :) But now since Flashlite v3.1 has officially released for Nokia 5230 all of you can go ahead & instal it. This thing is Simply Awesome --- It will improve ur Kinetic Scrolling Feature .... Faster Menu Opening.... Better Internet Experience... Better Youtube Buffering .... video smoothing & BEST off all Support for High End H.264 Plugin.
Ab toh toomhaara BAAP bhi Install karega .... haha
So go ahead GRAB your UPDATES People.
Surya Singh :)
