LOL its not a supercomputer m8.. You need a decent computer to be able to play .mkv ~720p so it's kinda obvious that it does'nt work in your phone  Roll Eyes

maybe when coreplayer 2.0 releases this month, u can buy it n try. but dont expect video's to play smoothly. the 5800 (or any nokia s60v5 phone) has weak hardware, it probably wont do smooth playback. not unless symbian^2 comes to these devices as an upgrade and coreplayer 2 would then enable hardware accelerated video playback.

bottom line, get a nice converter and convert your videos to mp4 h264 320x240.

why would you use 320x240 when the screen res is 640x360?

because h.264 is highly compressed and the 5800/n97 doesn't support playing higher than 320x240 h.264 videos.

@bhatia.mani,
mkv format is not popular with hardware manufacturers, so you will not see this format supported with other handheld players (take ipod for example). Most of them prefer MP4 format.

@lejonel,
An mkv video doesn't have to have 720p. It can be as simple as 320x240 low resolution video. However, because mkv is a great video container, it can support 720p and 1080p videos with multiple streams.

@Undertaker,
You should also add that for better quality you can convert those videos at full (native) resolution of 640x360 using Divx or Xvid. Converting the videos at QVGA (320x240) will produce 3 times lower pixels and loss of video quality.

divx?! 5800 isnt capable of playing divx video is it!? dont say smartmovie i mean come on, thats no where near as optimized as it should be!
conversion to nHD would require using the default mpeg4 profile. h.264 nHD wont work on the real player...

Divix is a video codec, while MPEG4 is a video standard.
Divx encoded videos can be in avi or in MP4 container.
The default preset in Format Factory is "MPEG4(Divx)", which wraps divx encoded videos using MPEG4 SP standard in MP4 container. This is perfectly playable on RealPlayer.
Similarly, using xvid codec we can make a xvid video using MPEG4 SP standard in MP4 container. Again, this is perfectly playable on RealPlayer.

That is a question that is being discussed already years (note that "xvid" is "divx" written backwards)... Grin
I personally like xvid better, because it has a lot more options that you can use to encode video (from very simple to very complicated),
it is a free codec (while divx is commercial), and I think xvid encodes in better quality.
For 5800XM, I convert videos using xvid. Smiley
