The DivX Player
The Nokia N95 supports video formats: MPEG-4 (MP4), AVC(H.264), 3GPP(H.263), RealVideo 8/9/10 but not .avi format.
The Divx Player however can play .AVI Video files.You cannot play .avi files used on a PC directly into a N95 , they first have to be converted with the correct codex.
There are various settings from Screen mode, brightness, contrast which make it a really worth while player to have. The Version 0.91, 0.90 & 0.89 have a new start screen which allows you to easily see your .avi files (not MP4). To get the Fullscreen with only the time showing i have used the Options settings shown below.
Converting Videos into .AVI
If you want to convert Video files into the correct .AVI format you can use Super (complicated download page!) freeware program. You need to select .avi as the Output container and follow the settings i have used Below. You can alter the Video bitrate and Frame per second (30 is the Maximum frame rate for the N95 phone). You can alter the Audio settings depending whether you have a music video or film.
1. Install Divx Player to your N95, via the Nokia Pc suite, Go to the Phone Menu/ Applications and move the DivX player into the Root folder for convenience by selecting Options/ 'Move to folder'.
2. Transfer any .AVI files to your Phone via Pc suite, or data transfer ( You could remove your SD external card and transfer directly to that if you prefer).
3. Start the DivX player on the phone and select Menu/ Browse Files any compatible files will appear in the File browser, Select the .avi you want and press the center key (or menu/ Play). The volume is usually set high and can be turned down with the navigation keys.
4. Adjust the Settings from Menu/ Options to your personal preference. That's it!
I have converted a couple of small Mpeg files to .avi for you. They are just intended to be used as test examples as they are taken from old footage from 1957 and 1942!! rather for their high quality. Click on the image to download
