Makayama has today released a DVD to mobile Nokia Edition of its popular software. The software will allow users to convert a DVD to a Nokia phone and watch in landscape mode.
With the compression software, the Makayama suggest you will be able to store a full length feature film on a 128Mb SD card.
The Nokia Edition will also support Symbian Series 60 Based phones, such as the Siemens SX1 and the Sendo X alongside Nokia models like the 6600.
The software installs an encoding package on a PC with Windows XP, users insert a DVD in the drive of their PC and with only two clicks, the software turns it into a super small movie file, which will play on a custom mediaplayer on the phone.
