Question about Coby MP-705 Digital Media Player

1 Answer

Unable to convert video

I have repeatedly tried to use the conversion program that comes with the Coby MP-705. It starts the process, gets to about 3%, then tells me that "Success; 1 task(s), Fail; 0 task(s). However there is no new video file. I am unable to figure out what is wrong.

    it could be that it cant read the source file of the video, because my creative zen did the same thing. Try getting a video converter of the web. link

    Are you sure that you have the XviD MPEG-4 Codec installed on your computer? It sounds as if it is not installed. If not you can do a search to find them for download.

    I can't find the "XviD MPEG-4" for the video compressor. Any ideas of what I've done wrong?

Thanks to ZZAMAMEE I found Kate's Video Converter (free) 4.0 and I was able to use it to convert the video into a format that the video conversion software supplied with the Coby MP-705 was able to recognize. To do the conversion select AVI, then advanced. Next select XviD MPEG-4 Codec for the video compressor,and WMAudio Encoder DMO for the Audio Compressor. Select the Resize Output Target size of 320 X 240 pixels and for Type select Fit to Target size, then apply. This will take you back to the original conversion screen. To select your output directory you need to select Settings, then select the settings option and browse to your output directory. After you select this then select the convert button. At this time you can change the name of the video if you want.

Now you can open Video Converter (the software that came with the Coby player), and use your new video as the input file. Select the output file, and you can also copy it straight to the player by selecting the MP3 Player tab and navigating to your video folder on your player. Hilight the input video name in the list of files in the bottom portion of the program, then select the little cog icon midway down on the right side and set the output file type to AVI, the size to 220 X 176 and select OK. Hit the conversion button and once the conversion is complete and it has copied your files you are done and ready to watch the videos.

Youtube videos are usually FLV flies which are not compatible with WMV. You must convert the video using video conversion software. Renaming the file does not convert the format the video file format.

Hey, i have a problem with the coby 705 mp4 player, the video converter that came with it doesn't work, i'v gotten other programs that convert to avi , problem i think is that the AVI format is not just...


Make sure you convert to mpeg4 with 220x176 and 30 fps. The conversion software that came with the unit won't allow you to do this. I solved the problem with AVS Video Converter 6. You can get it at www.avs4you.com. Chose "To MPEG" then select "edit" and enter 220 for width and 176 for height. Then enter 30 fps for "frame rate". This should do it. Good luck.

Coby mp-705 2gb video mp3 player


im using 4gb MP-705 and i kinda read through the guide thing and the first problem with the ur vids are that, if u sync with window media player the video files becomes WMV, but you want AVI so change it to AVI and drag the files to the coby directly by going into computer-coby blah and movies folder. I dunno about the MTP.BIN and WMPInfo.xml, but i tried everything i knew for making videos work, but in the end it didn't work. Just try the method with dragging and if it doesn't work i dun really know im stuck there. don't forget to converse the files with the small cd program
