Converting MPEG-4 files into svi

Hi All, Trying to convert an MPEG-4 file to svi in order to play on my YP-T8. Using the "Multimedia Studio" that comes with the player. When trying to convert the file i receive the error message: cannot convert, install proper codec. Samsung tech support says that MMS does not support MPEG-4 files, but specs say that YP-T8 does. Having read other forums on the topic I know that this is not a unique problem, but can't seem to find any solutions. Any help would be appreciated. Thx

Hmph. You got me thinking. Well, here are some suggestions: 1)try to re-install samsung multimedia studio. 2)try a different mpeg4 file to convert. If that doesn't work, something is terribly wrong. 3)go to this site: A download for k-lite codec pack should instantly start. Hope this works! If none of these work, then you may just have a virus somewhere.

Ok. i have these wmv files in my samsung Q1, but everytime i play it, it doesn't play and displays: "not supported format". but aren't samsung Q1 players supposed to play wmv files?

Hi i have researched your product and it should support wmv files so i dont understand why they wont play. I would either take the product back to where you got it, tell them its faulty, get a replacement and try again. Or just convert the wmv files you have to SVI (Mpeg 4) and they should work.
Hope this helps

I Cant Put Video's ON My Samsung T10 :( can you help me

The video must be a MPG (MPEG), AIV, WMV, ASF, SVI, MP3, RM (RMVB), MOV or SMF type of video. If it is not, try and find or download a video converter. Also remember on Samsung Media Studio click menu, enviorment settings, general configuration, my PC and make sure that you have checked in all the checkboxes of video file types

I cant play my videos

Probably you are not transfering files from the SAMSUNG MEDIA STUDIO 5, and the format is not compatible, so you are only carryng the file, try converting video to "svi" (this means samsung video) (default option in samsung media studio 5)

How do you put videos on it

You either drag & drog the files to the removable disk or go to Samsung Multimedia Studio and select 'export' and select 'export videos to device' on the drop-down menu. If the files aren't in the correct format then it will do that and transfer the files.
