Samsung Galaxy S III is without a doubt the best phone with multimedia capabilities to date. Its beautiful 4.8 inch Super AMOLED display with 720p HD resolution and a quad-core Exynos processor create a perfect hardware combination for watching video on the go. On the software size, Galaxy S3 sports the most advanced video player of the Galaxy series. Besides great new features, like thumbnails with real-time video preview and support for multiple subtitle tracks, the phone will have no trouble with most video formats you throw at it. Galaxy S3 of course fully supports most popular video formats out of the box - .WMV, .AVI (DivX and XviD), .MP4 and .MKV (H.264). A high end Exynos processor can handle video of any resolution, even large Full HD files will work like a charm.

To ensure your videos play on Samsung Galaxy S3 with hardware decoding and optimal battery management, we recommend using SoundTaxi with "H.264 with original picture size" conversion profile.

Get the latest version of SoundTaxi

Make sure you are using the latest version of SoundTaxi from the official web-site. Download it from here. Recent versions always include important bug fixes, as well as video profile optimizations.

Select the correct output format

Open SoundTaxi settings and select "H.264 with original picture size" conversion profile. You can also set "Compression Quality" to "High Quality", since Galaxy S3 hardware can handle such video without issues. H.264 is natively supported by the phone, so you can expect great performance and optimal battery usage during playback.

Copy converted files to Galaxy S3

Once you have converted your video with SoundTaxi and the appropriate conversion profile, you can just copy the files directly to your phone. Make sure Galaxy S3 is connected to your computer as a "Media Device" (MTP).

Use Windows Explorer to drag and drop the videos on your phone.
