    This page lists the media formats that are supported by Series 40 devices. FLV is not one of them. As for mp4, it will depend of the encoding. From the media page link:

    Video files — A range of video formats, including Windows Media Video (WMV) 9, 3GPP formats (H.263), H.264/MPEG-4 Advanced Video Coding (AVC), and MPEG-4.

    AFAIK, the file extension does not tell the encoding, only the container format of the video. Videos with different encodings can have the same extension. To deploy to Series 40 phones, I think that the best format is 3gp. If you want to convert videos, winFF offers a simple GUI to do that (and comes with a ffmpeg version for command line conversions).
