First, Install the K-lite Codec Pack, if you haven't already.

Now, take your video you want and encode/re-encode it with your favorite video encoder software. It must be 320 x 240 for it to show up properly on the Onyx. It must be in .avi format and it is a good idea to use MPEG-4 video and MP3 audio with this. It CANNOT be anamorphic (16x9), it MUST be 4:3 output and DO NOT keep the aspect(sp) ratio. Your resulting video when played should look small(ish) and square.

Now load up this:
Select the .avi you made as the input video. Choose an output directory. Where it say "quality", choose "custom".

Choose audio quality as 22k.
Video should be around 30k (I think the "k" means Kbps, I think)
Choose Fullscreen, NOT Full Image.
Choose Landscape.
Framerate should be "same as source"
Image size should be 128 X 160

This should give you 181MB/Hour. You can also choose the 200MB/hour preset, but to tell the truth, I never tried it, I always go custom.

Now hit "convert", wait for it to finish, and you should be left with an .smv file. Load this to the "MVIDEO" folder on your Onyx, and enjoy!

Convert all existing DVDs to .mkv digital copy?

Check the specification of your MP3 player to determine the type of video file format it uses. 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. Click on this link for instructions on converting video files for MP3 players :-

It is likely that the player requires a very specific type of media format to play video. There is no readily available manual online for this player, so experiment with various video formats.

Hi. If you're like me you just bought one of Mach Speed's mp3/media players (I have the Trio/Eclipse Model G2, it looks like the Ipod Nano). I bought it at Big Lots for about $30. Everything works except i can't get video to play on it! Here's what i found after hours of trial and error:
Seems mine (hopefully this will work for yours) will ONLY play either FLV or RM files. If you have AVI or other kinds of video files you can use this great software to convert to FLV:
It's free and it won't put a watermark on the video...which is great 'cause all the other free ones out there will. Anyway i hope this helps.

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??

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!!!!

Problem with playing movies on my element GC-1020 model mp3 playe

when you put the mini-disk that came with your player into your PC, install the AVIconverter and it will allow you to convert certain video files into the ".avi" format, enabling you to watch videos that would otherwise be unplayable on it. there should be directions for this process in your users manual.
