Re: can the clix gen2 play avi. files without converting?

Even though they may be avi files there are different codecs that may have been used to encode them. Since the specifics are a little too much to type here I have put a link to a faq on the clixhere! forum below.... they has all the specifics and can even help you if converting is needed. Clixhere!

Re: can the clix gen2 play avi. files without converting?

The Clix 2 comes with software on a CD and one of the applications is "Movie Converter".  I suspect it is capable of converting movies with different formats into a format that is acceptable for the Clix.  However, I have not used it and do not know for sure.  Someone else may be able to confirm this.

I bought a Sylvania 2.0 SMPK7834 today but it doesn't play avi format and says wrong file format.

There are plenty of video format converters available for free so you can convert avi to a more palatable format. Freemake is my favorite.

Is there another way to download videos on to my device without using a philips media converter

Most MP3 players can play avi movie files. If you download avi movie files to your computer and then copy them to your MP3 player then it can play them without the need to convert movies to avi files.

Creative Zen Vision: M won't read some .avi files

avi is a container format, they are always different from codecs. obviously, the codec of your avi files can be supported by zen.
check the manual, and change your codec

Coby mp610 2g mtv unknown format

Hey try to get the video file you are converting to .mtv to convert to .mov first.I had the same problems until I tried it that way.Someone else somewhere says mpg is a good format that the converter will read well and convert properly.I never tried it though.However I find that .avi files will give you problems.This is because .avi is a container not a format.

Also remember Youtube videos download as flv files and if you use MediaCoder like I do,to convert from flv to .avi you will have problems because the actual format will be Xvid and the container .avi.

fFor the sys err problem..visit the Coby USA website ...there is a firmware fix there.The actual link is on this site in another Coby mp 610 question.

I hope this works...let us know

I can't play all AVI's on my Archos 605


Yeah you need to go to the archos website and buy the cinema plug in (£14.99) if you want to play all. the only other option is to convert the avi files that you cant play. Also if you want to play any mpeg4 files and quite a few other files with different audio codecs you need the podcast plug in (again £14.99). This is the only way to be able to play everything on your archos without converting the files - it's a bit of a rip off as each set of plugins is specifically downloaded for a product key so you cant even get one from someone else - believe me I have tried for days to get them free!

Hope that helps!

Downloading movie length DVD to iriver x20

Yes, you need to convert all your movies to a format iRiver and understand and play.

Here's a link:
Movie Converter for iRiver and instructions

I'm not sure whether Movie Converter supports original DVD files. If that is not the case, then you'll have to convert DVD video into a format that iRiver X20 can use, and then feed that new video to Movie Converter.

However, that would be a bit redundant: to save on time and quality, you could use other video Conversion tools, such as SUPER:

After loading your DVD, you set the parameters to mirror those accepted by your iRiver model. In case of iRiver X20, those parameters are:

Extension: AVI [[also known as container]]
Video Codec: WMV9 SP, MPEG-4 SP [[MPEG-4 = XVID, DIVX]]
Video Resolution: max 320 × 240
Video Framerate: max 30 fps
Video Bit Rate: max 512 kbps

After successful conversion, upload your new video file to your iRiver X20 and play it back. If it plays [and plays correctly] - then congratulations - it works! If it does not play, then you might have made a mistake while setting the output parameters in SUPER.

Hope it helps. Rate me. Thanks.

Flash Games Don't play?

If you reformatted from Windows Media Player on the PC you need to reformat again using the "Format" command on the Clix player itself under "Settings" "Advanced".  I am also assuming you already tried to press the reset button on the player.  If you have already done these two actions someone else will need to suggest a solution.
