You must use the Philips (Arcosft) Media Converter to convert the videos. The program cannot recognize FLV files, so you will need to get a free program called Riva FLV Encoder to convert the FLV's to AVI first. Then the Philips Media Converter will recognize the files.

How do I connect to download U-Tube???


Ok, please note that the videos downloaded directly from the internet may not work properly on the player. You have to first convert them into a format that is suitable to the player using Philips media converter.

Download the Philips Media Converter software. Make sure corresponding Codec for playing videos is installed before downloading. The codecs are required to play videos on your player. To download Codec, you can:

1. Go to www.download.com/windows
2. Search for "directshow codec pack"
3. Download and install one of the codec packs from the list of results

Now to download video, connect your player to the PC and click the icon "Internet video downloader" at your desktop.

Open the youtube site. Move the cursor over the video you want to download until you see the Download icon. Double click on the icon to enable download.

After downloading, the Media Converter for Philips will then start to convert the video to the format that suits your player. If your player is connected to the PC, the video will be transferred to the player automatically.

I cant seem to be able to use my media converter for philips.I instaled it from my philips GoGear VIBE disk and it says I have to download alot of other stuf with it.


Ok, firstly, media converter is for video files only. For music use Windows media player or you can simply drag and drop files to your music folder under your gogear device.

Also videos downloaded directly from the internet may not work properly on the player. You have to first convert them into a format that is suitable to the player using Philips media converter.

Download the Philips Media Converter software. Make sure corresponding Codec for playing videos is installed before downloading. The codecs are required to play videos on your player. To download Codec, you can:
1. Go to www.download.com/windows
2. Search for "directshow codec pack"
3. Download and install one of the codec packs from the list of results

Now to download video (suppose from youtube), connect your player to the PC and click the icon "Internet video downloader" at your desktop.
Open the website where your desired video clip locates. Move the cursor over the video you want to download until you see the Download icon. Double click on the icon to enable download.

After downloading, the Media Converter for Philips will then start to convert the video to the format that suits your player. If your player is connected to the PC, the video will be transferred to the player automatically.

Hi im brandon. i have a go gear philips mp3/mp4 but how do i get videos on my player? if anyone can help me please and thank you cause i download a good movie and i want it on their. it has a video player...


You may have to download Riva Flv Encoder and convert the YouTube videos to AVI format first. Then you have to use the Philips (Arcsoft) Media Converter to convert and transfer video files to the Philips GoGear. Because the software likes to play a preview of the movie, you may have to download additional codecs to make it work. Copyright-protected or DRM-encrypted video files are not compatible with the GoGear.
