Ripping DVD movies
If you want to play DVD movies, the first step is to rip the DVD into an AVI file using a DVD ripper program.
The program does not have a DVD converter included. We recommend the use of the free XMPEG ,step-by-step tutorial included, or if you wish to make it easier, in one step, try Makayama's Mobile Media Maker.
Converting AVI files to a DVDPlayer-supported format
Use Lathe for Nokia included. Select your target device first, then open the source movie file, then press Start.
Download and use FFmpeg (http://homepage.mac.com/major4/) with the following settings:
Video codec: Xvid (.aiv) (ffmpeg), max. resolution: 208 x 176 (series 60) or 320 x 160 (Nokia 7710) or 640 x 200 (Nokia 9300/9500), framerate: 10 - 12 fps, bitrate: 80 - 150 kbps.
Sound codec: mp3, 32kBit/s with 16000 Hz, mono.
Install mencoder, mplayer, lame, ffmpeg, and w32codecs, then use the included convert.sh script (see readme_convert.txt).
After conversion, upload the file to the phone using Nokia PcSuite (comes with the phone, or download it at www.nokia.com), or copy it to the MMC using a card writer, then start DVDPlayer - it will show the new file in the list. The program needs about 2Mbyte free memory on the phone (not on the MMC).
You may need to download additional codecs for encoding the files: DivX (http://www.divx.com), or XviD codec (http://www.koepi.org)
Supported languages: English, German.
Supported movie format (if you do not want to use Lathe):
