    I am using my Nokia N8 since last two months and i will like you to say that you have heard wrong from your sources because N8 is very well able of playing the avi and divx(xvid) at its best but yes there are some problem with the file with .mpg extension and a probably with mp4 videos as well because i have noticed that it either plays the mp4 video and some time it just stop playing the video and will not bulge other than this i think it play most of the videos with different extension.

    Yes i agree with you and as far as i know its related to CABAC reference frames i mean in order to play the video N8 requires the video to have CABAC <= 4 reference frames.I have came across The videos from TED dot com and have found that some of those videos are encoded with 8 reference frames So in order to play it on N8 we will require to convert the video to have less reference frames because of which we will need a converter as well

    I will suggest you to get "Nokia Video Converter Factory 3.0" because i have been using the same and it is just great it comes with a conversion help process with the list of supported device using this when to start converting the video will play as well but you can disable it if you want to speed up the process or you can also send the application to the background .You also have some performance setting as well just check it out and you will surely like it.
