Play Your Movie on a Cell Phone

Some cellular phones allow you to watch video on their tiny screens. Here’s how you can convert videos from your computer and play them on your cell phone.

Digital video takes a lot of hard drive space. In its raw, uncompressed state, DV averages 14GB per hour of footage. In order to have video play on a cell phone, the digital video must be compressed into a smaller file.
