Do you convert videos for your mobile phone?

Most of the time, I convert videos such as flv, avi and mpeg to 3gp or mp4. Sadly, these two are the only compatible file formats that my phone could play. I don't regret buying this phone but converting is such a drag! The quality lessens and there are a lot of noises. Does anyone here in mylot knows how to convert videos properly? What converter do you use? Do you have to convert your videos or do you have a good player installed in your phone?

Converting really is a pain in the butt. Especially if converting full length movies. It really degrades the video quality and the voice quality of your video. Maybe in the future, mobile phones will be made to provide better video quality.

Technology is always evolving and I think, in the future, we will have better phones. Maybe these new phones could play all file formats and in a good video quality.

Yes, I love doing so all the time. I use a software called Smart Movie to convert video format files into avi format so that I will watch it from my cellphone with the suitable file size. It is a very good software.

Thanks for the response but I need something that converts a video into 3gp without decreasing its quality.

my mobile is almost like yours. it only supports 3gp and mp4 so i do convert videos. It's a bit hecty task and the quality of the video decreases so much that it looks horrible. i am planning to buy a new phone but there are few mobiles which supports avi and mpg video formats and those do are very costly. I think i have to stick with my mobile for a while until a cheap mobile is out in the market. I use Xilisoft converter for converting my video files.Its not so good but no so bad either.

I agree. The phone of my dad supports a lot of video file formats but his phone is a lot expensive compared to mine. I use total video converter by the way. Before the quality was good but now, there are a lot of noises. Do you have any preferred settings for the video's bitrate or sample rate?
