Always enjoyed watching videos on your mobile phone whilst you’re on the go? Still, we can be pretty unsure of the video format that’s supported by our mobile phones. If you’re an owner of the Samsung Galaxy S series, read on for more information about the supported video formats for Samsung Galaxy S series, including Samsung Galaxy S10/9/8. And learn the method of how to convert videos to Samsung compatible formats easily.

Part 1. Supported Video Formats for the Samsung Galaxy S Series

Basically, you can watch any MP4, WMV, or AVI video files on either of your Galaxy S10, S9, S8, or earlier mobile phones. Those are the more common or popular file formats used, and it can be playback on most applications.

Samsung Galaxy S10+/S10/S10e:

  • MP4, M4V, 3GP, 3G2, WMV, ASF, AVI, FLV, MKV, WEBM

Samsung Galaxy S9/S9+:

  • MP4, M4V, 3GP, 3G2, WMV, ASF, AVI, FLV, MKV, WEBM

Samsung Galaxy S8/S8+:

  • MP4, M4V, 3GP, 3G2, WMV, ASF, AVI, FLV, MKV, WEBM

Part 2. Best Video Setting for Your Samsung Galaxy S Series

The best video setting for the three different Galaxy S models only differs slightly in terms of resolution. Others, such as frame rate, bit rate, channel, etc., remain the same in an MP4 container.

Video Settings

  • Encoder:
  • Resolution: 854 x 480 (for S6 and S7); 854 x 480 (for S8)
  • Frame Rate: 2160p@30fps, 1080p@60fps
  • Bit Rate: 2000 kbps

Audio Settings

  • Encoder: AAC
  • Channel: 2
  • Sample Rate: 48000Hz
  • Bit Rate: 128 kbps

Don’t be surprised that sometimes our supported (or as claimed) video files are not recognized or compatible with playbacks. The primary reason is due to the codec differences used to store either the video or audio file. It’s more time consuming and difficult if you don’t know which particular settings to adjust for your videos. In that case, you might wish to convert it with the Wondershare UniConverter (originally Wondershare Video Converter Ultimate), an all-in-one video converter which supports 1000+ output formats and presets for Samsung phones. Learn the main features listed below of this converter and follow the steps to convert videos to Samsung Galaxy phones.
