Trouble playing AVI video on the N8? Here's a solution...
The N8 is an awesome multimedia machine. You can throw almost anything at the video player and it will play without complaints. However, I have noticed that sometimes the N8 refuses to play some of my AVI format files. Before I tell you how I solve this problem, let’s go over the difference between a codec and a format.
Codec: A codec is the algorithm used to compress/decompress audio and video streams. Some of the more popular codecs are H.264, DivX(actually a quasi-codec), and MPEG-4. The reason we compress data is to make the data file smaller and also less resource intensive for real time playback. The quality of what you see and hear is almost entirely dictated by the quality and rate of the compression scheme.
Format: A format (also known as a container or wrapper) determines the way the codec is stored and delivered. The container is important because it creates a standard in which to encapsulate the different compressed audio and video streams and ensures for example that they are played with correct timing. That said, there are many different containers such as MP4, AVI, and MOV. It’s important to note that a given codec can be wrapped into a multitude of containers. For example, the MPEG-4 codec can be contained by both AVI and MP4 wrappers.
Ok, so let's get back to the N8. The N8 is officially specified as supporting MP3/WMA/WAV/eAAC+ audio codecs and DivX/XviD/MP4/H.264/H.263/WMV video codecs. This is actually a bit confusing because some of these are more often recognized as containers as opposed to codecs. The reason for this dual usage is because some codecs actually have containers named after themselves.
Alright, this is getting really twisted but here's the bottom line. The N8 seems to be more robust at playing MP4 formats as opposed to AVI formats. I say this because 90% of my MP4 movies play on the N8 while only about 60% of my AVI movies seem to work. My solution to this is to convert my AVI files to MP4 by using a free program called appropriately enough 'Convert AVI to MP4'. The program is fast and simple to the point of being idiot proof. There aren't any settings or anything to mess with. You simply click a button to open the AVI file to be converted and that's it.
The program can be downloaded for free at

I've been using it for a few months now with no problems.
One of the best phone released by nokia,
however it's size and design is very office-type of phone, for me..unlike C7 or X6..
For those who have any bad experienced on your n8 display like reddish or violet purple go to the nearest Nokia Care For Replacement....
Note: Do Not ignore, Defective Amoled is defective Amoled. Need To Replacement... Go to the nearest Nokia Care For replacement...

Nokia N8 Wi-Fi Turning Off Problem.
I have just bought my Nokia N8 and I have faced some problems while using it but fortunately I’ve solved them all, one of those problems is the WLAN Connectivity is always active and it consumes the battery charge so I have done some steps that solved this problem those steps are as follow:
This Problem May Be Due To Several Reasons:
1.You are turning ON your “Show WLAN availability”and “scanning for networks” Automatically, which makes you Nokia N8 searches frequently for WLAN and Connect automatically to the Available one.
Menu > Settings > Connectivity > WLAN > press Options > Settings > Show WLAN availability > Never.
2.You May Need To Adjust Some Connectivity Settings:
Menu > Settings > Connectivity > Settings.
And Adjust The Following:
Switch to WLAN > Manual
Data use in home network > Always ask.
Data use when roaming > Always ask.
3.Your are having Applications on your Nokia N8 which require WLAN Connectivity:
Note: You Do Not Have To Remove Those Applications, You Will Only Disable Them From Connecting to WLAN Automatically.
Menu > Settings > Application manager > Installed apps.
Press on EVERY Application and HOLD > Choose “Suite settings” (If Available) > Network Connection > Ask when needed.
4.The Widgets On Your Nokia N8 Home Screen Require Connectivity:
Your Home Screen > press Options > Widgets to offline mode.
Then Restart Your Nokia N8 Mobile Phone.
5.If you are Using Mail feature on your Nokia N8:
Menu > Applications > Mail (You Might Have Moved It) > Settings > Press on your Email > Synchronisation > Retrieval frequency > Choose any thing except Soonest.
Note:Do The Same Steps For Every Email You Have.
Note:If you chose Soonest your Nokia N8 will need to stay connected all time to get your Mail Updates as soon as possible,which will require that your WLAN to be always connected.
6.Go to every Application you have and try to change its way of connection,so that it would not connect automatically to WLAN.
I Hope Those Steps Have Solved Your Problem as It Solved Mine.
hi! can anyone tell me what's the maximum capacity of the hdd that can be hooked to n8 and accessed without any lags or hangs? i'm planning to buy hdd for hi def movies. thanks a lot guys.
I loved this phone. i use it since 2 months now it never crash or reboot for errors it have a great hardware and amazing camera.
great screen and music players also have a nice speakers.
and i wish if nokia made all this features in a phone have a keyboard like E7.
think bout buying this fone if into camera.. daytime excellent camera fone but during night shots, i think it's horrible.. do not expect too much from a 12 MP camera of this fone especially night shots.. figures can mislead u.. it may disappoint you.. but performance wise, its great..
