Question about Sony Walkman NWZ-S616F MP3 Player
The video is a mp4 file but my walkman still does not play it! is it because of the size? the file is pretty big.nearly 700MB,
all my other videos work but they have a resolution of 320x240.
if it is the resolution i have to change, how do i do it???
Yes, that is the problem. The resolution needs to be 320x240 because that's what Walkman plays. The best way to convert it (well, the simplest - you can use Handbrake and a myriad of things, but this works in a less confusing manner) that I have found is through DVDVideosoft's program, available for free download here: http://www.dvdvideosoft.com/
From there, (once downloaded and installed) you need to download and install the YouTube to iPod component (but that's relatively easy and quick on a decent connection) by clicking the first option in the left-hand side menu, "1. YouTube to iPod Converter" which will prompt you to download and install. (I know it says iPod but it works in the same file format, MP4. It also says YouTube, but works for any file on your computer.) Then, when that's done, click again on the YouTube to iPod Converter link, locate the file in the input URL field (by clicking browse, ensure that where it says "file type" in the dropdown box in the open menu, you change it to say "all file types" instead of flv). Click open.
Where it says "devices" under the output file field, select Apple IPod. Next to that, select "iPod Classic High Quality (MPEG4, 30fps, 320x240; AAC - 192KBit" and convert. This will dump the new file in the same folder as the previous unconverted file was - if you want to change that, find a new location in the output file field below the input file field :)
That should all be fine once your converted to 320x240 MP4, if the video file size is small enough to fit on your Walkman. Hope that helps you! Let me know if this solution doesn't work and I'll try to find another one, but that's how I convert my video files. =D

SOURCE: format not supported??
the size of the file is not an issue unless the total memory is exceeded...
the video has to be in the correct format for the player to read it
download the youtube downloader program and convert the file to the sony mp4 format ..i think it is called p2p(mp4) within the program....transfer by dragging and dropping into videos folder when connected to computer by usb connector
