Even the newest version of the Arcsoft Media Converter, I have found, doesn't recognize FLV files even if you have an FLV codec. Use a free program called Riva FLV Encoder to convert any FLV files to AVI format first. Then Arcsoft will recognize it.

HOW DO I GET VIDEOS ON MY RCA MP3 PLAYER?


Make sure that you have a "Digital" Mp3 player and not a simple mp3 player. Mp3 players can only play music.

  1. Go to the computer that you will be transferring or moving video files to your mp3 digital player from.
  2. Then open your internet browser and go to: www.codecguide.com . If this link changes Google "K-Lite codec pack."
  3. Look for the K-Lite Codec Pack. Download and run this codec upgrade package to your computer. This is something like an interpreter so that your software can read the language that the video is written in. When these aren't up to date, videos will not be able to be read or played.
  4. Once installed, Google or search both these two programs: "RCA SMV Video Converter" and then secondly, "RCA Video Converter." They are not the same program. A converter is a program that can change what type of file you have. For example: from a video.flv to a video.mp4 or video.avi. Any how, download and install both.
  5. Attempt to run the programs and convert your files. If the RCA SMV Converter still can't read the codec, make sure to send it through the RCA Video Converter first. If this will convert it. You then can send the newly converted files through the RCA SMV Converter again and it should be able to read most of the codecs.
  6. Then copy and paste or drag them from your computer to your video mp3 player. You have to look in "My Computer" to find your mp3 player device. Input your new videos with the .smv extension ending to your video folder inside the player.
  7. Attempt to play them on your player.
Hope this allows you to resolve the issue.

How can i get a k-lite codec


The best (and safest) website to download the k-lite codes is CNET. Here is the link: http://download.cnet.com/K-Lite-Mega-Codec-Pack/3000-13632_4-10794603.html

Thanks and good luck!

You have to use the Philips (Arcsoft) Media Converter to convert/transfer videos. If the converter is not recognizing a specific video type - FLV, for instance - download a free program called Riva FLV Encoder and convert the videos to AVI format first. Then the Philips Media Converter will recognize them.

The Philips Media Converter is not capable of converting an entire DVD - you will have to acquire video editing software, and then break up the DVD files into 15-minute chunks, and then convert each chunk.

If you are getting a codec error, do a google search for free video codecs - they are out there. Windows Codec Pack and downloading the latest version of quicktime will give you most of these needed codecs.

This player is not capable of playing copyright-protected videos - so don't even bother with them.

Additional information is available both from Philips website and from Arcsoft's website.

Downloading vidoes


Download the Microsoft Codec Pack first.
You may need to download additional codecs - MPEG, AVI, FLV - the types of Codec you need depend on the format of the video you are trying to transfer. Do a google search for these Codecs, although you will gain many of them by downloading the latest version of Quicktime.
You may have to convert some video file types to AVI format by downloading a free program called riva FLV Encoder.
Once they are converted to AVI format, your Philips (Arcsoft) Media Converter will be able to convert/transfer them properly.

MPEG codec for MP3 player: Philips SA52XX


Hi people. I had the same problems.
Uninstall Media Converter and any codec packs you have.
Install K-Lite Codec Pack 5.0.0 (Full)
Reinstall Media Converter
The converter plays havoc with Windows Explorer 8 so you need to uninstall it (control-panel-uninstall programs-updates) then reinstall it when you have installed the codecs and the converter.
Hope this helps
:-)
