The video converter only lets you convert one format which is ".WMV"( I think),and it tries to make your life very difficult so here is quick solution. the only way to convert your videos is to work around the problem.

PAY ATTENTION and remember this steps

1st. go to this youtube video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nado0jumx...

, it will give you a website that converts media.: http://www.mediaconverter.org/

2nd. once you get to that website choose if you want to convert a video from your computer or directly from youtube. then press next.
3rd. when it asks you:Choose the file type to convert to:
pick the format that says WMV.
then click next, skip with no changes and press next again, and it will converted it for you, now just wait a little and wait until it tells you you can downloaded.

4th. once you save the file "in" your computer open the converter that came with the mp3, press add; then look for the file that was converted(note:if the video you converted was originally from your computer, there will be two files, the original, and the one you converted, make sure you pick the one that is converted) it will probably be installed in your desktop so look for documents and settings, then click on owner, and then click desktop, finally click on the video.

5th.(your almot done)once the video apears in the chart press on the right hand side were it says play, if it plays that means you can convert it now,(if it doesn't you did something wrong), press were it says convert. wait a few minutes

6th. once its done, make sure you go to the target folder, thats were the newly converted video will be at, once you go that folder connect the player,a new window will appear. then go back were it shows the converted video(you can tell its converted because it will have a weird icon, windows wont be able to play it, and it will have an ".SMV" at the end of the name.) right click and copy or cut, then go to the new window you opened by connecting the player opal and just right click anywere and choose the option that says paste.

AND FINALLY: unplug the player, turn it on, go to your videos and it should be there


YOURRRRR WELCOME!!!

Cant play videos


save the movie file as an AVI(audio, video interlaced) file in a folder you can find in the computer hard drive. go to opal and the pc library click on the import media tab. go to the folders tab and find the folder with the AVI file. click the import media button and there should be a screen showing the pharase transfering all compatible media. the files should then be found in the opal pc library under video. click the file you wish to upload, then click on the transfer to device tab. it should then begin converting the file, which may take a while. after the conversion it should begin transfering the file to the player.
ENJOY!,

How do i put videos on my opal mp3


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.

    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.
