Question about RCA OPAL M4001 MP3 Player
Log onto the RCA website and download the RCA SMV Video Converter. The Opal only plays videos that are in one specific format. This converter will put your videos into that exact format (see Resources below).

I strongly disagree with 'ipodfans'. video should never be changed to mp3 format.. unless you only want the sound.
The RCA OPAL MP3-MP4 player utilizes a very selective video format. It MUST be SMV or you will not access it for playback.
Once you have converted the video format, you put them on the player as you would any MP3 file. Drop and Drag to the playlist.

a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).
click here to download the app (for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need.

If you have the CD that came with the player double-click on the Converter folder and the RCA SMV video converter comes up. Double-click the RCA SMV icon and it begins to install. You can also go to http://www.rcaaudiovideo.com/software.
However I do have a question about video lengths. What is the length limit for videos? Can a 2 hour or 700mb movie be installed? My player is 2GB.
Thanks - Rob.

Use a free program such as Riva FLV Encoder to convert the Real Video files to aVI format. Once they are in AVI format, the RCA Easy Rip software should recognize the video files, and you can use the Easy Rip software to convert/transfer them to your player.

This uses sigmatel video files. You need to convert the files to smv files. You can use the easy rip software you can get at the RCA website. However I like using this free app. http://www.soft29.com/freeware/smv_converter.htm
