Until the Android arrived, we used to check what audio and video formats do the phone supports. The phone used to support few formats only and infact users had to convert those video on the web using the converter softwares to the format which is supported on their mobile phones. Mostly users had been looking for the 3GP format as it was the widely accepted format by most of the phones and devices. But as Android has arrived the game has changed completely and with the Android now you can play almost all the formats thanks to Android Market that many apps and players are available.
But there are certain requirements to play supported audio and video formats as they should be atleast on the Gingerbread OS first and the next thing few applications might require to have the root access on to your phone. If it doesn’t ask well and go, you can straightaway install and use the application. Other thing your phone should have minimum hardware so as to push the high content played efficiently. The Android phones with 600 MHz processor are able to play the video but gives you disappointing results and 800 MHz single core would be sufficient enough to get good results while playing high graphics good. Of course if you have high-end smartphones then you don’t need to check this out.
