Among the formats supported by the video player are MPEG4, WMV, AVI and DivX.

Kevin ****, DivX president, presents the certification obtained by the Samsung SGH-F500 Ultra Video as a sort of multimedia convergence, which allows the user to watch their favorite movies (and even an entire movie, memory permitting) on ​​their mobile phone without the need of a conversion to another format.
