This device will only play SMV files. You will need to download two free programs Any Video Converter. http://www.any-video-converter.com/products/for_video_free/ And the other is http://www.soft29.com/freeware/smv_converter.htm SMV converter.
Instally both programs. I use any video converter and changed it to mpeg. After the file is in mpeg then I use SMV converter. I do cutom use the largest screen format and highest on everything so its full screen. And the quailty is a heck of lot better the the easy rip free program. Give it a try and let me know if that works for you.

    after the file is converted to smv files just drag and drop it into the video file of your opal once its hooked to converter.

My opal player wont play videos


This player only plays sigmatel video files. You have toconvert the files to smv files. You can use the easy rip that came with the OPAL. I like using http://www.soft29.com/freeware/smv_converter.htm its a free program and does a much better job.

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.

    Video will not load


    You have to use the video converter program that came with your opal. If you haven't installed that onto your computer yet, that's where you need to start. After it's installed, plug in your opal, let the computer recognize that it's there, and open the converter program. This will take wma files and convert them into a format that will work with your mp3 player. The program should automatically download them to the player after it converts the file. Good luck.

    RCA OPAL M4002A Video Problem


    You need the specific video converter software from RCA that comes on the CD included with the Opal.  If you don't have that, post here and I'll try to upload the image somewhere as an .iso file.  This is necessary to get the video into the final format the Opal can use.  As far as I know, other video convertors won't format the file properly.
