    I've watched plenty on my 6600. The quality depends on how you choose to
    convert the movie to 3gp. As to whether the film is watchable or not, well
    that depends on which player you use to play it back in. If you use the
    default Realplayer then you'll be limited to a non full screen version. If
    you choose Phillips Camcoder however you can get full screen playback of
    video but no WideBand AMR (which means better sound).

    I personnaly don't like 3gpp . For watching movies on my ngage I use
    smartmovie player on the phone with its integrated converter for Windows
    (using standard xvid compression for video and Lame MP3 for audio). Here are
    the settings I use for good quality:
    -video: 128kbps
    -audio: [email protected] (with 200-300% volume boost depending of the source
    volume)

    with these settings a 1h30 movies fit into about 60Mo with acceptable
    quality . I usually split 1 movie into 4 files.

    I haven't used Smartmovie as paying $20 just to watch films on my phone
    seems excessive. Still each to their own I suppose.

    To SmartMobileZone I would say, try Nokia MultiMedia Converter 2.0
    (available free from the Nokia Developer Forums) and encode the films at
    128kbps for Video and if you're playing back using RealPlayer choose WB AMR
    as this gives a cleaner (though lower volume) sound. If you are going to use
    another player to play the films (Philips CamCoder for example) then you are
    limited to AMR sound only, which while acceptable is distorted at high
    volumes and of a lower quality than WB AMR.

    Or I suppose if you are seriously into movies on your phone you could pay
    for a player and converter package like Smartmovie.
