The What Mobile forum is back open for business!

Hello to all fellow mobile technology lovers,

We realise this forum has been dormant for quite some time and today we begin our long task of reviving it!

We urge you all to come back and start posting again. Mods will be back in full force and the banhammer will be used to filter out the horde of spambots parading through our digital streets.

As the new moderators and staff here at What Mobile magazine, we have made it our duty to reinvent this into the once-bustling forum that is used to be.

Enjoy the rest of your week and we look forward to getting things moving again.

    You cant , there are several apps that let you play various formats, http://www.symbiangear.com/product.h...5,21106,103632 for example, not sure if it works on N73 but there might be a new version

      Bear in mind that you will have to re-code divx files though, as the N73 doesn't have enough processing to play stuff that renders nicely full screen on the PC. I have to drop the video down to something like 240-288kbps (resized to fit 320x240), and audio of 96kbps AAC. Looks and sounds fine.

          You are getting that error as most apps designed for 6630/6680/N70 will not work on the newer N73/N80 etc due to the new version of the symbian operating system.

          You will just have to wait for newer versions of the programs you need.

          Depending on what PC you have either Windows or a Mac there are plenty of programs around that will allow you to re-encode video files, a simply google search should work. If you have a mac, you can use a program called VisualHub to do conversions for you, as I dont have a PC I cant say what the Windows equivalent is called.
