    My mp3 player has the ability to play videos but I have no idea how to put them on. And I really want to have some Youtube videos on it. What can I do without having to download software?

    Well i'm not very familiar with this product but i can try....

    However i need to know the following:


    1. i need to know whether any videoes came preloaded onto the player...

    2. i need to know if the player is a drag-and-drop type of player or one that uses a program such as itunes for ipods

    3. i need to know whether there was any programs or not theat came with the player...

    4. i need why specifically the videoes arent working because there are a million reasons why a video just wont work... (i.e. does the video not work on ur player at all, or if parts skip, or if theres no audio ect.)

    5. i need to know whether or not you have actually read the manual because if not then im wasting my time...

    according to the website though the player can play Mpeg4/MP4, SMV, AVI, WMV, RMVB, MOV which is pretty much covers most video clips.

    it also says that a couple of programs came with the player so if u havent tried to use those try it...

    i recommend winavi for converting to mp4 wmv rmvb or avi files if it is just drag and drop

The only video files work on this player is SMV.
You can use the easy rip bye going to RCA website and downloading it.

Or can use SMV converter. (free Program)

When i put videos it say empty .nothing shows up.what kind of videos should i put mp3 wma or something?


Unlike an Ipod, you will need to install the RCA SMV Video Converter software which helps you convert your videos into a supported format for use with your RCA player Click HERE for converter. Do not install the RCA video converter because it is not for your model. After you download the converter, install it and re-boot your computer. Import your video file into the converter, let it transcode the video into the proper format and then upload to your MP3 player. If you have any further issues with your player click HERE for the manual. I hope this helps and good luck!

I can not convert my videos to the player


This player only plays SMV files. sigmatel micro files. You can use the easy rip software that came with the opal. I like to use this program. http://www.soft29.com/freeware/smv_converter.htm It's a free app and does a much better job than the easy rip.

How do i put videos on my opal mp3


Log onto the RCA website and download the RCA SMV Video Converter. The Opal only plays videos that are in one specific format. This converter will put your videos into that exact format (see Resources below).
  • Install the RCA SMV Video Converter once you have downloaded the software.
  • Open the RCA SMV Video Converter software to begin putting videos onto your RCA Opal.
  • Connect the RCA Opal to your computer using the USB chord that came with the device.
  • Wait until the RCA SMV Video Converter software reads that the device has been connected. You will know this when the bottom of the software screen reads “Player Detected: Opal 1GB 2GB.”
  • Select the “Browse” option to find any videos that are on your computer which you wish to add to the RCA Opal.
  • Click the box next to “Transfer output files to OPAL 1GB 2GB after conversion is complete” after you have selected all of the videos which you wish to convert. This will automatically add the videos to your RCA Opal after they have been converted.
  • Click the “Convert” box after you have selected all of the videos. The videos will automatically begin to convert to the correct format. Once they have been converted, your videos will automatically upload to your RCA Opal.

    Trying to convert real player video to play on Opal


    Use a free program such as Riva FLV Encoder to convert the Real Video files to aVI format. Once they are in AVI format, the RCA Easy Rip software should recognize the video files, and you can use the Easy Rip software to convert/transfer them to your player.

    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)
    http://www.soft29.com/freeware/smv_converter.htm
    After the file is in mpeg form use SMV converter and you got your video and movies that will play on your MP3 player

    Easy rip for opal mp3 player isnt working


    There are ways to work around the easy rip.
    If its mp3's you want on it you can drag and drop them into the opal folder.
    If you want smv video files you need to. you need two programs.
    1st program is http://www.any-dvd-converter.com/products/for_video_free/ (free program)
    It lets you change all video formats to mpeg is the setting I like then after its an mpeg.
    You use http://www.soft29.com/freeware/smv_converter.htm (free Program)
    It converts the files to smv (video file that Opal accepts)
