S60 devices are not vary good when it comes to wmv files, batter convert them to MP4 or avi.

You can use H.264/AVC as codes that will give you a really good quality video.

Thank you Hassan but one of the reasons why i purchased this phone was for this function. I assume it is a software issue, is it likely to improve with firmware updates? Are there any applications i can download that play wmv's better?

where can i get software that convert wmv's to mp4 or avi? and what is H.264/AVC?

No pro you wellcome, I don't really think its a firmware issue because as far as am aware S60 devices only support WMV up to QVGA not sure about frame rate and bit rate. Although i8910 hardware can support higher resolution. Its OS limitation.

Coreplayer support WMV too but i dont think its good either and also it doesn't support S60 V5 devices. They are going to launch there there new version of player later this year which will support S60 V5 devices. I can only hope that will support high resolution WMV videos.

I also have Touch Diamond 2 which has Micro$oft Media player which suport WMV and even that struggle to play high quality WM videos.

High resolution WMV never been choice of format on mobile devices.

You can download SUPER which is free and does a good job.

If you have fast core2duo machine you can also try Media Coder best to convert video files in to H.264/AVC. I love it.

If you need any more help feel free to ask, as i had spend lot of time to try different ways to convert videos since P800 days.

I've just looked at Nokia Doveloper forum to find what video codes and format are supported by OS, here is a little chart.



Regards

Hassan

Also, we're bringing Kinoma Play to Symbian/60. It's getting close, and looking great.

I disagree with the above - generally, you should have no problems playing wmv. Some will exhibit that issue but most should be ok. This has been my experience.
