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

I have a sony walkman and im trying to convert music videos to it with windows media and I have downloaded a sony walkman converter but when I try to play it on my walk man it says cannot play file format...


I have tried numerous converters and once I move the files to my Sony Walkman it says that either the file cannot be played or that there are no video files on it. I have used manual settings, I have used programs that auto convert for sony walkman and nothing. What I don't get is that only a few weeks ago I added some wmv files to it and they are working fine, but now if I try to add even one of the same files it wont work. Did I accidently uninstall something, or something?

My problem is my sharper image mp4 player isn't download videos


If it's not downloading videos, first you need to check the requirements. If you're trying to download a video from the computer to your MP4, you have to make sure that the device has enough space to accept the video.

Example: the video size is 700MB, but you only have 600MB remaining storage on your MP4, then the device could never afford a file size that is larger that the free storage.

Check the supported file format of the device. Refer to the user manual of your device to see what are the supported video file formats. Let's say the device could support .avi file, but you are trying to download .3gp or other file format, the device would not accept it.

Kindly refer to the user manual or contact the manufacturer for more details about your device.

Thank you!

My walkman can't read the format:mp4


Your Sony Walkman will only read/play the following formats...
Supported Audio Format: MP3, WMA, AAC-LC, Linear PCM
Supported_image_format: JPEG
You will need to convert your songs/files to one of the above supported formats before they will play on this player.
You can download a free song/video format converter at the following website:

Good Luck, I hope this helps...

Format not supported??


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 :)

CONVERT!

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
