Desperate to see the famous PowerMP3 in the new edition of the S60 platform, once popular in its past versions, programmers from MobiFactor delighted users with their new brainchild for video playback. It can not be said that the program turned out to be ideal, but it obviously causes sympathy.
Utility can play files in MP4 format and AVI( encoded in DivX).With the display of MP3 rollers shot with the built-in camera, PowerMovie does not have any problems, but with heavier AVI movies with which DivX Player and SmartMovie cope with "hurray", there are troubles: flickering and twitching of frames. Everything is solved by selecting the right bitrate and the optimal number of frames per second, but do not forget about the possible loss of quality. No excitement and built-in program error-patch for displaying errors on the screen.
Pros: Playing MP4 and AVI;very fast file transfer when rewinding
Cons: Unstable operation with high bitrates;patch for the output of errors
Conclusion: An interesting product, but rather "raw" and in need of improvement.
