Ok you need to goto http://www.any-video-converter.com/

Choose your input file ... Choose your output folder. (Output folder selection is in options)

Select the format type of *.mp4

In the selection below that change the codec type to mpeg4 (The other 2 are for iPhone and dvds)

Press convert.

Once finished you should copy the newly converted video to the player, It should then play fine ... I say should.

I cannot find any information about your player online but my guide to you here is based on what I know so far about generic mp4 players. If after that it still doesn't work then I think you may be right and your son wrong.

WHAT VIDEO FORMAT DO I NEED TO CONVERT TO BE ABLE TO PLAY


Most common video files that MP3 players use are, AVI and WMV, there may be others such as FLV, MOV and DivX. If your player cannot play a video then it is an incompatible video file format, then you need to convert that video file to a format that your MP3 player uses. After video conversion then copy the video files to your MP3 player using the USB cable from your computer.

PLAY VIDEOS ON THE MP3 PLAYER
Check the specification of your MP3 player to determine the type of video file format it uses.

There are commercial and freeware video converters on the Internet. Use Google to search for Video converters. I found these converters useful, Kate’s Video converter, Any Video converter and CI Video Converter.
I suggest you try some freeware types first and convert a video file, then test this converted video file on your MP3 player.
To copy/download your video files to your MP3 player, connect the USB cable from the MP3 player to the USB port on the computer. Open the video folder on the MP3 player and copy and paste the video file/s from the computer to the video folder on the MP3 player.

In my mp3 player some amv video files are playing while some of the amv video files are not played. the player says "unsupported form" . why?? what should be done to make the videos play??


Hi,
Every mp3 player has certain restrcition. Lets take an example, your VCD player would not play DVD and so on.....
In this way, only solution is to convert the .amd files into mp3 format.
Google out different converters available in the marke, convert the format and enjoy!!!!
Thanks.

Dvd does not play


Three problems - the Media Converter will not correctly convert videos over 15 minutes long, it will not recognize the DVD's file structure, and it cannot play copyright-encrypted video files. This player is more for YouTube-style videos. Here is a workaround:
1) Use video editing software to break the DVD file into 15-minute chunks
2) Run the chunks through Riva FLV Encoder - convert it to AVI format, and make sure sound is enabled
3) Run the Riva-converted chunks through the Philips Media Converter
4) You can now watch your movie in 15-minute chunks - I hope you chose filenames that allow the files to be played in sequential order

Have fun!
