When using video2smv to convert video from WMV format to SMV format, the conversions are successful only some of the time. Maybe only 60% of the videos will convert. Does anyone know why the erratic failures happen, and what can be done about it.
Hi, I had the problem. the way I found to not get the error is to install the "k-lite codec" and that fixed everything... I hope you have an answer for my problem, I can not find all my mp3's on my player it only shows some and all others says no files.?

I suggest you try this conversion program and if it works the uninstall the other conversion programs. Check the specification of your MP3 player to determine the type of video file format it uses. Most common video files that MP3 players use are, AVI and WMV, there may be others such as FLV, MOV and DivX. If your player cannot play a video then it is an incompatible video file format, then you need to convert that video file to a format that your MP3 player uses. After video conversion then copy the video files to your MP3 player using the USB cable from your computer.

There is a Video Conversion Tool for this player, since it only will accept SMV format. If the Video Conversion Tool does not recognize the files that are in FLV format, you will need to get an additional free program such as Riva FLV Encoder to convert the FLV's to AVI format. Once the videos are in AVI format, the Video Conversion Tool will recognize them. Here are some additional notes from your user's manual:

VIDEO2SMV_V41 only reformats video files. Relevant third party codecs and players must be used to support the previous video format. Only if your computer is able to play the source files will VIDEO2SMV_V41 be able to properly convert the files to .SMV format.
VIDEO2SMV_V41 is used without installing: Copy the folder "SMV Conversion Tool" to your PC. Enter the folder and double-click video2smv.exe to run the conversion tool.
Unlike most devices the Philips 3020 will only play videos that are converted using the software that came with it and it will only open wmv files. So these are the steps that you need to do to successfully to play video on the 3020:
1) convert video into wmv format using any wmv converter (unless it is already in wmv format). I use WinAVI video converter and it works perfectly.
