Jeez, where do these people get these solutions? (below) You don't have to buy anything... Get "any video converter" if the philips converter fails to install like mine does. (google it) and then Go to microsoft.com and download and install Windows Media player 11. You have to have this. Also look for "all codecs" and install that too. It's a must for converting videos. Then you can take any video file and convert it (320X240 @ 30fps) Any Video Converter works for Youtube as well...

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 )

Arc soft say;s im missing a codec flv codec's


Even the newest version of the Arcsoft Media Converter, I have found, doesn't recognize FLV files even if you have an FLV codec. Use a free program called Riva FLV Encoder to convert any FLV files to AVI format first. Then Arcsoft will recognize it.

The Arcsoft Media Converter only recognizes a limited set of file types. I would download a program called Riva FLV Encoder, and convert the files that the Arcsoft does not recognize to AVI format (the product documentation for Riva says that it converts files to FLV format, but it is quite capable of doing the opposite). Once the video files are converted to AVI format, the Arcsoft Media Converter will recognize them.

CANNOT DOWNLOAD VIDEOS ON MY PHILIPS SA5285/37 PLAYER


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.

Video conversion


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

I dont know how to put a movie/video onto my philips go gear 4GB


Use the Arcsoft Media converter that came with the installation CD - also available at www.usasupport.philips.com

Click Add Files

Find the folder with the video files in it

If you don't see the file that you are looking for, it is in FLV or some other format that the converter doesn't recognize - in this case only, download an FLV to AVI converter (or whatever the case may be) and convert them to AVI format. THEN, run them through the Philips/Arcsoft Media Converter

You can save the converted files to a folder, or load them directly to the GoGear - by selecting "add to device"

Boo-yah!
