to do it you basically need to convert it to a format your mobile phone supports. That would most probably be .3gp, .3g2, .avi (please do install Smart movie player or a DivX player). Since your phone is a smart phone, these two S60 apps will run on it. For .FLV, there is also a software called Flash Movie Player which is also a S60 app which will enable you to play all FLV files. Alternatively you can just use a converter to convert it to the formats which your phone supports. .mp4 is not a Real format, it is the MPEG-4/Part14 specification written by the MPEG assembly. However, the Real Player bundled alongwith your phone supports MP4 files. As for DVD files, you will need to convert them, mainly because no software as such supports direct VOB playback [maybe a few even do], the main concern here is the huge file size.
Wait a minute: FLV is not a DVD format (like your topic suggested). The best way out is to use a converter to the format your mobile device supports. This can be accomplished only with a few tests done by yourself so you can find the best output.
you will have to convert your videos. of all the phones why a symbian. i hate symbian. there's nothing there.
get yourself a pocket pc which has windows mobile and experience that wow effect. its possibilities are endless with windows mobile.
symbian is jst so limited. coding a program for it is also a pain. really.
Symbian's can play almost anything. For any other phone, you need to convert them to playable formats ( like Mp4)
Convert it to a format your phone will actually support. I know my phone (Sony Ericsson W580i) supports .mp4.
Use 'SUPER' to convert the file into one that can be played on your phone. SUPER has a lot of options that you can use to convert it into the exact format that will play on your mobile platform.
Either you can convert it to 3gp or MP4 or if you have a symbian OS, you can use third party applications that can play the video files you want to play.
Buy Samsung Galaxy S2 and u can run any video/audio/image format.
I really enjoy this mobile.

Yes. You can play FLV and DVD files in your mobile but it must be there supported in your mobile. Because most of there is not any supportive file in your mobile than you can not play this files in your phone. So you can also install FLV player in your mobile.
Then, what is the best player for movies in Androis (Galaxy S2)?
You can definitely play FLV or DVD files on mobile but the device itself must support it. There are very few devices that actually support FLV files. Best way to use these video is to convert them using video converter softwares like free video converter.
i think core player is the most sofisticated player made so far; u should try and see what it gets, it's about 6mbs but i never tried it with FLV files
For Android try MX Player.
