You have to install the Philips (Arcsoft) Media Converter that came with the installation CD - if you have lost the CD, you can actually get the new, upgraded Media Converter from www.usasupport.philips.com. The Media Converter can't handle full-length movies - it is more for shorter, You-Tube style videos. If the Media Converter doesn't recognize your videos, first get a free FLV codec online. If it still does not recognize the videos, download Riva FLV Encoder and convert any non-recognized video to AVI format. Then the Philips Media Converter will recognize the video, and you can run it through the converter. The Philips website also has a link to the full user guide which explains some of this, if you have lost the user manual.

How to put vedios on the mp3


It seems that this device only plays one video type. Meaning that you'd first have to run all your video files through a converter, and then you can put the converted file on the device, and only then will it be able to play video files. The supported file types are wmv and smv. There might be some others that I havn't come across yet though.
Here's a download link to a converter for this device: link Simply put the output type to either SMV or WMV and convert the file. Copy the converted file to your device and it should be able to play.

I hope I was able to help. If I did, please don't forget to rate my solution.

My go gear 4gb is saying video not found, pls I want to the software or format that is compatible with it


The videos are SMV files

To add videos to this player you need to use the software Philips provided. It's a bit complicated to use so follow the instructions carefully. The software will convert the videos to a Philips format to enable you to add them to the Video Folder. You can't just add a file as this will not work, it needs to be converted.

The software can be found at

Hope this helps you.

Can my go gear 2030 play videos?


Yes you have to convert the videos to .smv format.

It should have come with a cd that contains the media converter program. If not you can download it from philips HERE. I use a different one that I found by using Google and looking for SMV Convertor. After converting video transfer like any other file.

None of the videos that i put on my opal m4204 4gb wont work???


This will only Play SMV files.
You can download two programs that will convert it for you for free.
One program is Any Video Converter. (free program)
http://www.any-video-converter.com/products/for_video_free/
This will convert most things to mpeg the file SMV converter likes.
Then you will need SMV Converter (free program)

After the file is in mpeg form use SMV converter and you got your video and movies that will play on your MP3 player

Converting files to smv


You must use the Philips (ArcSoft) Media Converter that came on the installation CD. If you lost your CD, you can find it at www.usasupport.philips.com - enter your model # and go to the Software & Drivers section of your model #. It will say Media converter software.

Converting file to video format ( i.e. SMV format)


Get another video converter and convert it to Windows Media Video (WMV) then convert it to SMV videos from there. IT works 100% Guaranteed.
