The 6300 have a nice Video Player. It supports 3GP, 3GP2, MP4, MP4/AVC (aka H.264) and FLV (FLV files have a .swf extension).
That's 5 formats but you are better off not bothering with the FLV format when it comes to video as the files have to be a certain file size for the player to open them. The FLV format is best left to games and other apps. like calendar and stuff.
When converting video in any format the frame rate MUST be 15 FPS for the video to play smoothly.
Other than FLV, the 6300 handles any format with ease...especially if you have a good video converter like Any-Video-Converter or Allok Video to 3GP Converter (don't let the Allok title fool you, it converts regular MP4 and H.264 as well).
Finally, one thing I like about the Video Player is that it supports Rewind and Fast Forward and you can set the intervals from 10, 20, 30 or specify your own RW/FF time. Example, if you set it to 30, a single tap of the RW or FF key will rewind it 30 sec. or forward it 30 sec. There's a user definable field where you can set your own time which is useful for large video files like movies.
While the video is playing, you can also hold down the key and it will perform a search just like when you watch a DVD movie on your TV...meaning you will see the picture moving in fast motion.
Certain converters doesn't allow for smooth searching and smooth searching is also dependent of the RW/FF interval. In fact if the interval is too high, like 30 mins. or so, the search won't work, the picture will just freeze and then eventually jump to a earlier or later segment of the video (depending on which key you press RW or FF).
For the smoothest search, where you will see the picture moving in fast motion, set the interval to 10 and use a fast converter/encoder like Any-Video-Converter. Have fun at the movies.
The camera is a very good one. The only flaw I see with the camera is that dark scenes have shades of green in it. I consider that a small flaw though.
Once the scene is brightly lit, whether by natural light or artificial light, you have crystal clear photos. There are so clear that the 6300 camera can be considered a rival for 2 Megapixel standalone cameras.
I showed my co-worker a few photos from my 6300 after I transferred them to the PC and that co-worker said I don't need a standalone camera. I can't answer your question any better than that (smile).
I don't understand why some guys tell nokia 6300 is bad????? I'm buy the Nokia 6300 in just 5day ago n i'm read all the opinion but i just buy n c what happen? First i saw the battery is BL5-C but when i use 6300 in 1 day then the seller said "give me the BL5-C n exchange the BL4-C coz Nokia 6300 support the BL4-C battery n i said but BL5-C battery going gud in 6300 but he can't listen n i exchange BL5-C to BL4-C but guys believe me when i'm use 1day BL4-C in 6300 the battery back up is fentastic. So guys don't be angry in Nokia 6300 coz It's a Slim, Sexy, 16.7 Million Color, Sound Quality Gud (Ear Phone), Battery BackUp gud but guys I'm buy the latest Nokia 6300 Black Edition n my fone software is full updated.

6300 battery isnt good at all a software faulty one not the best ive hate i dont like 6300
@ Ange uk,
i was very specific from whom i was asking the question. Read carefully. This forum started to get spoiled from the day, ignorant people started to compare the 6300 with the 6233.
I have 6300 an 5310 i think 5310s better battery lasts ages its slimmer and it has 5th edition software so it tells you whos rung or text on the screen nice phone the 5310 cameras good to even though its a music phone
i currently have a 6300 and planning to sell it and get a 5310 as i am really impressed by the design of the 5310 do u ppl think i shud sell it for a 5310?? plz reply
Mjk your so right about this board why cant we concentrate on the 6300 and stop the nonsense and silly questions like "what if i buy it and its usless" just one 2 mention.use common sense man!.i have the 6300 an in my own opinion the 6300 is good handset just battery that lets it down! In my humble opinion
Good day to all,
I would just like to inquire, does anyone know how to do a hard reset for this model (6300) and not just the restore factory settings?
so far not a bad phone, but i have to say i don't like the way there is no time-stamp on incoming text msgs. one has to actually go into message details to find out, which is a hassle in my opinion. anyone know how to add the date/time to msgs? thanks.
Gud phone and Nokia again wins the confidence of consumer!!! I would recommend the user to try out this piece.
You can always take it back or exchange it if you dont take risk you wont know
i agree with you. But what if someone buy one of these and turns out to be useless or something like that?
