You can get a good pack of codecs here:

RE: GPX Touchscreen Media Player MT851B My .avi movie files are showing "file format error " before convertion. After i convert the .avi movie files, only the first 15-20 minutes of the movie...


you will need an advanced movie editor or converter that can convert the video from the supported types(even if it is already an .avi file) to: 320x240 resolution, using the xvid mpeg4 codec for video and mpeg layer3 mp3 audio codec. the quality can only be as high as 64 kbps i believe.
the player itself comes with a converter either built-in or on a cd. this converter sucks though and wont sync up the audio to the video very well at all. so i suggest you use a high quality converter so the videos will be watchable.

When I try to put a converted youtube video from MP4 to an AVI on this player it tells me its in an invalid format. I have 2 players one for music and one for videos. I can't remember how I did it last...


Make sure which formats the player supports. Avi is just the container and can have many formats . According to the specs the player supports wmv,avi and flv try converting the videos again but use a resolution of 220x176, it might help as the player would not have to scale the video down. I have also noticed that the transcend player MP860 had it's own converter software. Check if your friends have the MP860 or MP870 player and install the software off the cd and try converting the video files as the coby may support the same format.

How do you add music,videos, and photos to your mp3 player?


Check the specification of your MP3 player for the types of file format it can play for music, videos and photos. The most common file formats for MP3 players are mp3 for music, avi for videos and jpg for photos. You need to convert the music, video and photos into these file formats before copying them to you MP3 player via the supplied USB cable from your computer.
For instructions on converting music files, click on this link and follow my instructions :-

For photos, save them in jpg file format before copying them to your MP3 player.

How do i get my music videos to play with sound?


Video files need to be converted into AVI format before being uploaded to your MP3 player with the AVI converter software that was included on your MP3 player. Your MP3 player must be in USB Disk mode before transferring video files. Once the desired video files have been converted to AVI format they can be uploaded to your MP3 player with the Media Manager software that was also included on the Software Application CD provided with your MP3 player.

Philips media converter wil not convert all my videos. I cannot convert my videos to my player


You can get codecs by installing the latest version of quicktime, or by separately finding mpeg-2, mpeg-4, and avi codecs - just do an internet search. They're available for free.

The videos that are not converting are either:
1) Too long
2) Copyrighted music videos
3) In a format that the converter cannot recognize. Get the Riva FLV Encoder - it can convert FLV to AVI, or anything else to AVI.
