Contest: MobileDVD by MobiSystems- 10 Licenses GiveawayFiled Under Nokia 5800 Applications,Tube5800 Contests
In case you were wondering, NO, we didn’t forget to host our customary Tube5800 contests, we were, lets just say gearing up for THE CONTEST of Tube5800!
Ever since the day we first heard about 5800, we have always wanted to use it as a mobile media player, which has hardly been the case since our entire collection is in avi format and converting the entire collection to mp4 format is a herculean task, unless you have a supercomputer at your access! So, naturally we were on a lookout for an avi player for our 5800s and we were so impressed by it that we thought we should share it with our readers and here we are hosting the Tube 5800 contest giving away 10 licenses of the ultimate media player for 5800- Mobisystems MobileDVD.
Before we proceed to the contest, lets give you guys a brief preview of Mobile DVD on our 5800s

Mobile DVD is a no non-sense media player which excels at doing what its supposed to do, that is play avi files. The progress bar is on the tap and the volume bar is located towards the bottom of the screen, which become visible with a tap on the screen. Another tap and you are back to the full screen mode, as simple as that.
As you may know, the usual avi files are not optmised for viewing on our 5800s and may need conversion to match the 360x640px resolution of our 5800 screens. Mobi Systems seem to have a solution for this too with the converter that comes in the package. Unfortunately the converter doesn’t provide us an option to convert the videos to 360x640px resolution, so we may as well chuck the converter out! We did transfer unconverted videos of 624x352px resolution and we didn’t notice any fall-backs in the playback on our 5800s. So, there you go, we can now play all our media files on our 5800s without having to bother about converting them!
