Question about RCA OPAL M4001 MP3 Player

Cannot get the smv. converter to convert.

I cannot get the converter program that came with the player to convert to the smv. format, after I select the video and then hit convert it kept saying that the conversion failed on the line that the video name is on but at the bottom of the program screen it says conversion finished. Can anyone help me get the program to work or if anyone knows of a better conversion program that converts any video format to the smv. format. Any help will be apprecitiated. Thank you. ian_davis1@msn.com

Hello experts! How do I convert movies from WMV to the format supported by a Phillips Gogear vibe Mp3 player(smv), without downloading any foreign software? What can Rhapsody do, if anything?


You can't. You need to install a program that can convert video files to another format to another that suits your MP3 player.
There are commercial programs as well as freeware programs on the Internet.
I suggest you Google search for these programs.

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.

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.

    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

    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!

    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.
