The videos have to be run through the Philips (Arcsoft) Media Converter that came with the installation CD - if you have lost it, you can get it from www.usasupport.philips.com

You have to drag and drop music files directly from the folder they are stored in to the music folder of the GoGear - using Windows Explorer is easiest. Be careful which WMA's you transfer - older GoGears (and a few of the newer ones) supported copyright-protected WMA's - the SA3020 does not support them.

I can't convert my videos to the format that the Philips GoGear Vibe can support.


Check the specification of your MP3 player to determine thetype of video file format it uses. Most common video files that MP3 players use are, AVI andWMV, there may be others such as FLV, MOV and DivX. If your player cannot play a video then it is anincompatible video file format, then you need to convert that video file to aformat that your MP3 player uses.

NEED TO USE THE PHILIPS MEDIA CONVERTER APPLICATION PROVIDED TO CONVERT FILES TO FORMAT THAT THE PLAYER CAN READ


Hello,

All support for the SA6045/02 is on this page:
http://www.p4c.philips.com/cgi-bin/dcbint/cpindex.pl?ctn=SA6045/02&slg=en&scy=GB
Scroll down to Software and drivers to see the Media Converter software.

Click the zip file and best would be to save the file to a location on your computer.
After the download finished, unzip the file with WinZip or Winrar.
Open the folders of the extracted files:
under folder
MC_2.0.2.80_SA33xx_SA61xx_Intl_GM_CD02004_0928 start Setup.exe to install Media Converter Software, ArcSoft.

MediaConverter for Philips converts following formats to player, into WMV :
AVI (Microsoft video I format), MPEG-1, 2, 4, DVD (*.vob), MOV, WMV, RM etc.
Needs Quicktime (for MOV) and Windows Media Player 11 (for WMV)
installations.

WHAT KIND OF VIDEO DOES MY PHILLIPS GOGEAR(2 GB)SUPPORTS


It plays video in smv format. I was just able to figure out how to do it and now it works great. The main thing to remember is to use the converter that came on the software (came with the philips mp3 player) and it will work.

I tried to use a 3rd party application to convert to smv format and when I loaded it onto the philips 3020 it wouldn't play. I used the the software it came with and it worked.

The tricky thing about this software is that it will only work with files in wmv format and then it will convert it to smv format which will play perfectly on the philips 3020. I

n my case I had to convert from my avi format to wmv and then convert to smv just to get it to play but it was worth it.

Hope this helps guys!

Cant convert video to my philips sa3020 or 3021


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.

2) after the file is converted then you need to open up the Philips media converter that came with your MP3 player and add the files that you just converted to wmv format and then hit convert. If you can't find it here is a link to the download http://www.p4c.philips.com/files/s/sa3020_37/sa3020_37_mcs_aen.zip


3) After the second conversion process then connect up your 3020 and drag and drop the files.

** The Philips media converter will only accepts files im wmv format so that is why the first conversion step is necessary. If you try to open any other format it will not respond.

Hope this helps!

I can't convert videos into .wmv in philips media converter


Hi! Your Philips Sa 3025/37 doesn't support .wmv video format instead it supports .smv video format. You can convert your video formats such as .wmv, .avi, .3gp, etc into .smv format.

You can download it from-

http://www.soft29.com/freeware/smv_converter.htm

After installing it select the dimension as 128x128 and frame rate as 15 fps from quality level-> custom -> details

Enjoy!

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
