    I have the same issue, the converter just crashes, the device is recognised but prompts "ok to disconnect", id I open the player in My Computer, it wont allow me the option of drag n drop for the files, insisting I use WMP to SYnc with, which to fails to do.

    Im at a complete loss with it now, I cant download any move on it (regardless of format).

Video (eg: YouTube Videos) can be dragged onto the PVP such as Philips Sa5285/37 without using ArcSoft or Windows Video Player. Use "Mozilla FireFox 3.0.5" with "Download Helper 3.5.1 Add On" and download the selected Video from YouTube in the prescribed manner and then drag it onto your PVP by opening up "My Computer" in Windows and finding the PVP Icon (make sure your device is connected) - open it and find the Video Folder and if it is not there create one as you would on your PC. This works well as long as the Video is converted to AVI by the Add On Download Helper Convertor. Open "Preferences" window after opening FireFox Browser and opening Download Helper window. Select "Conversion" ,Double Click "Convert FLV Files From ALL to AVI Default" from main window( this would have been set as a rule ). Then Select Input Files with Extension "FLV" then "from site" "ALL" then for "Output" select AVI(mpeg4+mp3) then selct "Details" & then "General" and then "Output Format" "AVI Format" then "Video Codec" "mpeg4" then "Audio Codec" "libmp3lame". Do not go to "Advanced" and change anything -those boxes are left unchecked and just "Custom AVI" comes up for Video Format. Good Luck Friends! DWH

Huh? (below) That post is way more difficult than it really is...

Download "Any video Converter", download Windows Media Player 11, Download "All codecs"

Use "Any Video converter for Youtube videos and any other video file you want to convert if the philips program fails to install. You need Windows Media Player 11 and all codecs for this to work flawlessly... Set the conversion setting as directX and mpeg 4 in options and then WMV V9 for codec @ 320X240 - Video birate at 384...

Not able to play video in philips gogear pls suggets


Hello,

Media players need the matching video format: for GoGear Vibe it is SMV.
To convert video from AVI to SigmaTel Motion Video, use the Media Converter Software from the manufacturer. For the videos you'd like to convert, be sure to update video codecs in Windows Media Player 10 or higher.

Vibe players have different display sizes, so you'll need the matching Converter for your player.
When you have the United States version SA5285/37 next site gives all support, including the Arcsoft video converter:
http://www.p4c.philips.com/cgi-bin/dcbint/cpindex.pl?ctn=SA5285/37&slg=en&scy=US
note
There's and update for the Arcsoft converter, for downloading directly YouTube films:
click on EXTRAS at the top right hand corner of the Arcsoft main screen.
At the pull down menu click UPDATE AND PATCHES, Arcsoft will check
and let user download and install the updated Stream Ripper feature
( streaming videos need flv video codec )

I DONT KNOW HOW TO PUT VIDEOS ON MY GO GEAR VIBE


Hello,

Support for GoGear Vibe can found selecting your model on next page:
http://www.search.philips.com/search/search?q=GoGear+Vibe&s=all&l=global&h=all&o=
Select your model from the list.

Under Software and Drivers look for the download of Philips Media Converter Software, in the support page matching your player.
Install and run Philips Media Converter for conversion and transfer of your videos.

When wanting to put videos of e.g. YouTube onto your player, first download the latest codecs for video:
http://www.download.com/windows
Download and install the "directshow codec pack".
To start a download of video from YouTube, click the Internet Video Downloader.lnk icon in the right corner below of the computer screen.

Bought my daughter the SA 5285/37 yesterday. Opened it, plugged it in, transferred two files, then it froze. Pushed the reset button as we had only done two files, but now it when it powers on it only says...


Reset the player by inserting a paerlcip into the reset hole. If that fails, go to Philips' website and upgrade the firmware on your player to solve the freezing issue permanently. Actually, don't go to Philips website - run the Philips Device Manager and select Update. If the device manager won't recognize the player, unplug the GoGear, hold in either the shuffle button or volume + and reconnect it to the computer until a Found New Hardware Wizard window pops up.

I cant download youtube


The video conversion software (actually made by ArcSoft) will not naturally recognize FLV files. You will need a FLV to AVI converter - I use Riva FLV Encoder. Once the YouTube videos are converted to AVI, the video converiosn software for the GoGear should recognize it and convert the video. If the video conversion software is giving you a codec error - get codecs for FLV, AVI, MPEG-4, and any other format you may be using (Quicktime, latest version contains many of these Codecs).
