Default What type of video files are supported by my 8330?

Please Login to Remove!

I was trying to watch some videos online on my phone and they never loaded... I tried several websites and the majority of them dont work.

What type of video files are supported by my phone? (What is the file extension?)

I took an xvid .avi and stuck it into mediamanager and it converted it for optimal playback, have not tried non conversion, but i doubt it will work.

You need to consider codecs as well as file formats. Quite a few video file formats are just wrappers. AVI is one example. The BB doesn't support all codecs that can be contained in the AVI format.
