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).

  • Install the RCA SMV Video Converter once you have downloaded the software.
  • Open the RCA SMV Video Converter software to begin putting videos onto your RCA Opal.
  • Connect the RCA Opal to your computer using the USB chord that came with the device.
  • Wait until the RCA SMV Video Converter software reads that the device has been connected. You will know this when the bottom of the software screen reads “Player Detected: Opal 1GB 2GB.”
  • Select the “Browse” option to find any videos that are on your computer which you wish to add to the RCA Opal.
  • Click the box next to “Transfer output files to OPAL 1GB 2GB after conversion is complete” after you have selected all of the videos which you wish to convert. This will automatically add the videos to your RCA Opal after they have been converted.
  • Click the “Convert” box after you have selected all of the videos. The videos will automatically begin to convert to the correct format. Once they have been converted, your videos will automatically upload to your RCA Opal.

    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.

    SOURCE: how do i donload video on my opal mp3 player

    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.

    That player came with a video converter on the CD - if you don't have the CD, grab the converter from rCA's website.

    SOURCE: Trying to convert real player video to play on Opal

    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.

    Did you install the video converter that came with the opal? You have to convert all files into a format that's compatible with the player. It's simple to do and should solve your problems!

    Video will not load


    You have to use the video converter program that came with your opal. If you haven't installed that onto your computer yet, that's where you need to start. After it's installed, plug in your opal, let the computer recognize that it's there, and open the converter program. This will take wma files and convert them into a format that will work with your mp3 player. The program should automatically download them to the player after it converts the file. Good luck.

    You do have the disc? you have to use a program on the disc that converts videos into "smv"...it's on the disc, one of the options on the splash install menu.
