The long wait is finally over and the first official app by DivX for Symbian devices is out and ready to support Symbian both S60 3rd edition and 5th edition in the 1.0 version. So you can now finally enjoy your DivX movies in your pocket especially on your Nokia S60v5 devices. But I can’t guarantee anything will be smoother as some of the hardware of our devices could give you some headaches.
Anyways, I was able to play an .avi file in my Nokia N97 mini but not so smooth in start. You could just play divx files with a screen resolution not exceeding your phone’s screen resolution. The maximum screen resolution of some Nokia Symbian 5th edition devices is 640 x 360, not sure with S60v3 though, and most .avi files are on this resolution so converting will not make you more nuts on this. Just transfer the files and play, done!
The sound quality is what I should praise for because I was able to hear crisp audio output. As well as the interface of the application. You can download the application for free that is in beta phase on the DivX labs site which will expire somehow. Merci to our friends over at blog-n97 for the heads up.
Devices: Symbian S60v5 & S60v3
