Movies on your smartphone

Video vendors

  • Kinoma software (www.kinoma.com) is a popular way to convert video, image, and even audio files. Install Kinoma Player on your Treo and Kinoma Producer on your computer. Open a .mpeg, .mpg, .avi, or .mov video file in Producer, convert it to Kinoma format, and sync to your smartphone. It's fast, easy, and great for converting short clips.

  • While FirePad (www.firepad.com) is useful for viewing large images, such as mapsor engineering plans,on small screens, it can also play .avi and .mov video clips.

  • MMPlayer software can read video files in their native MPEG format. Copy .mpeg files to your smartphone and MMPlayer (www.MMPlayer.com) will play them.


With a full-color, bright screen and an expansion card slot, your Treo smartphone is like a small television with a DVD player. You may not be able to stream the latest movie directly from DreamWorks studios, but you can do a lot more than you might think. While it is entirely possible to convert your favorite DVD movie and fit it on an expansion card for viewing on your Treo smartphone, think beyond Hollywood. Check out the solutions from third-party application developers that let you optimize video taken with a digital camcorder for viewing on your smartphone: company training videos, house-hunting expeditions, and your family escapades.
