Re: video conversion

It says that because the 605 uses FAT32, which I believe has a file size limit of 2gb.

Cant put videos on it

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 :-

File format not supported...what does that mean

Not supported format concerns one or more of the next items:
  • size: the memory size of the file ( too small or too large)
  • layout: the size of a frame for video or photo, bitrate or identification tags for music,
  • extension: the suffix added after the dot file name
e.g. photo1.jpg or photo2.tif
  • digital rights management: copy protected files sometimes can
be played, but cannot be transferred mostly.

Media like photos and videos
1. Need to have the supported format as required for the software called "Media Converter" on the computer.
2. A Media Converter must be used to convert the format into a model that can be read on the player before it is accepted to do a transfer.

1. Must have the supported format as required for the player.
The identification called ID-tag contains the name of the song, artist, album etc.
The bitrate of music says something about the quality / sample rate
of the song: when converting cd audio to e.g. song1.wav or song2.mp3
(called "ripping") the quality depends on the presettings of the audio

Loading video to my sony NWZ-E436F.

I just got it to work!

I modified the mp4 file using awesome program called ‘SUPER’ (a video/audio conversion program) I did two things.
1) Put the video size to 320X240.
2) I put the the bitrate to 1,008kbps (the .pdf manual on the CD that came with the player states that it can handle mp4 videos up to a max 1,024kbps).

Unable to convert video

Thanks to ZZAMAMEE I found Kate's Video Converter (free) 4.0 and I was able to use it to convert the video into a format that the video conversion software supplied with the Coby MP-705 was able to recognize. To do the conversion select AVI, then advanced. Next select XviD MPEG-4 Codec for the video compressor,and WMAudio Encoder DMO for the Audio Compressor. Select the Resize Output Target size of 320 X 240 pixels and for Type select Fit to Target size, then apply. This will take you back to the original conversion screen. To select your output directory you need to select Settings, then select the settings option and browse to your output directory. After you select this then select the convert button. At this time you can change the name of the video if you want.

Now you can open Video Converter (the software that came with the Coby player), and use your new video as the input file. Select the output file, and you can also copy it straight to the player by selecting the MP3 Player tab and navigating to your video folder on your player. Hilight the input video name in the list of files in the bottom portion of the program, then select the little cog icon midway down on the right side and set the output file type to AVI, the size to 220 X 176 and select OK. Hit the conversion button and once the conversion is complete and it has copied your files you are done and ready to watch the videos.

Video conversion

Hello Andrew,
Even though the website claims Archos can play videos of DVD resolution it cannot play videos of such big resolution 800 x 480..To display the full DVD resolution, you would either have to buy the HD add-on plugin (presumably for $20 as it is not available yet), which allows resolution higher than 720x480, or to buy the MPEG2 plugin, which allows you to play a raw DVD VOB file...So also it plays videos of Square pixels,So try to reduce a bit of resolution to 720x480....!!!!...Better Reduce the Resolution of the video to 740 x 480 and the bit rate while Converting, so Your Archos can play the MOvie Completely and you can watch it...Also I hope the Embeded Subtitles in the movie(MP4) doesnt work for which you have to get a seperated Plug-in i guess...Thank you!!!...

Don forget to rate the solution..

Please post back for further assistance...

Good Regards!!!..

Classic Ipod video playback problem

This is a response to all thoes with the problem of ipod videos stopping randomly and acting as though the video had ended. (please excuse any spelling or grammer errors that may be involved in this post)
I have reciently noticed alot of topics on this and other sites that had issues with the video on the ipod. After syncing a video that is a proper mp4 format, it seemed to work fine, it even began to play but after one or less minutes the video would stop playing and act as though it was finished and had reached it's end. It would happen at the exact same point every time and you could fast foreward past it and it would continue playing, only to find the problem in another spot a few minutes later. I had this problem with each and every video that I synced and could not play any of them, this problem irritated me and as I found out alot of others who had the same problem. I could find no solution that had yet been found after searching many sites that involve help with the ipod. After some research I soon found and solved my problem. The problem is that the ipod will only accept videos that have a video bitrate of less than 768 kbps. This is what causes our problem as stated above. This would mean that 512kbps would be the ideal for watching videos. (every video that had a video bitrate of 512 kbps (or lower) always worked and had no issues whatsoever) Only a few 768 kbps videos will work and some of them will not. So to fix the problem you need to find somthing that will reformat your video to a video bitrate of 512 kbps or lower. The current one that I use is called "Jodix free ipod video converter", this will change your favorite non mp4 videos into mp4s and just be sure to set the video bitrate on the converter to 512kbps or lower. Also use this program to change your already mp4s into a video bitrate of 512kbps or lower. (Just be sure to set the video bitrate to 512kbps or less by sliding the bar to lower quality for video.) This should make your videos continue playing for full enjoyment of your ipod. (with video) Please respond with any and all questions. Thank you for your time, I hope this is useful and solves the problem. Sorry for being long winded with my answers, I do this to ensure full understanding of my explination. /\/icho.
