What are the type of video formats (without the help of additional video players/apps) supported by Windows Phone other than .3gp and .mp4?


1 Answer 1


Windows Phone generally supports: 3GP, 3G2, WMV, MP4, M4V, AVI, MOV files that use H.263, VC1, MPEG-4 Pt 2 or H.264 codecs.

Depending on individual phone model (and therefore processor), some phones will support differing maximum resolutions, etc.

  • But MPEG-4 is not working in Lumia 525 !pls clarify.

  • 192kbps seems a very low bitrate for 720p video - which makes me wonder which profile/other settings/were used making your file
