    How to watch mp4 files from Q9c

    Today I received the mini SD card and when I tried to watch some of my mp4 video files, I was very disappointed.

    What is the best video file type for this smartphone?

    The built-in Windows Media player plays MP4 files but the quality was bad

    as Rudeboy said TCPMP , wich is much better and with more options than Windows Media Player.

    With TCPMP and MPG4s you will need the AAC audio plugin in order to get the audio to play. TCPMP also plays AVIs well and the audio codec for that format is already installed with TCPMP so no need to get any other plugins.

    And I agree with all about TCPMP being far superior than WMP in terms of video playback.

    Seems this question still hasn't been touched upon, I was wondering the same. Regardless of TCPMP or WMP, which file format produces the best results for playback on the Q9c? wmv, xvid, divx, mp4, mp4-avc?

    An Xvid encoded AVI is propbably your bes t , unfortunately TCPMP doesn't have the proper video codec or plugin to take advantage of Xvids. Not sure if the commercial Core Player supports those Xvid AVIs, but if you can find a mobile media player that does, Auto GK is a great free conversion program that encodes using the Xvid codec, which is also free.

    Other than that, being that the Q has such a small screen, either the standard AVI or MPG4 will look very decent..
