Samsung Galaxy S Series Video Codec

Posted 16 August 2015 - 04:00 PM

I can't seem to find the right codec for a video I have which is posted on my website. i've tried mp4 (H263) WEBM and AVI and none of them can be viewed by the stock phone browser. Would appreciate someone telling me what codec to use to render the video to be used for all galaxy series phone.
I even tried Chrome and Firefox browsers on the phone and nothing. It works on all apple products and a Samsung Tablet

There are a lot of differences between the different Galaxy S phones. It's likely that the latest model will support a great deal more than the first version.

On my old Galaxy S3, I would sometimes use H.264 video in either the MP4 or MKV containers. Never had trouble with that. - I'd assume the browsers would support the same codecs the phones natively support.

You may also want to double check the mime-types used, if you are trying to use the HTML Video element to deliver these. If they are wrong, the browser may disregard videos it can actually play.

Thankyou for your reply. I managed to get it to work using the HTML element but not on the stock browser. Worked fine when I imported Firefox and Chrome from the playstore.
