RCA OPAL M4002A Video Problem

So I was able to successfully convert a wmv video into the smv format finally. But when I tried to get the video to play on my Opal, all I could hear was sound with the screen blank. Plus it kinda messed up the player and I had to reset it.

I hope someone out there can help me with this one!

    I tried using the rca converter first but it didn't work so I installed SMV video converter I think it's called. Using that is what caused my problem.

    But I reinstalled the RCA one and guess what? It works now! Thx!

You need the specific video converter software from RCA that comes on the CD included with the Opal.  If you don't have that, post here and I'll try to upload the image somewhere as an .iso file.  This is necessary to get the video into the final format the Opal can use.  As far as I know, other video convertors won't format the file properly.

    Here's a link to the software from the RCA site:
    http://download.rcaaudiovideo.com/downlo...

    Is this what you're using?  Which version of Windows Media Player (if any) do you have installed?  I ask, because it changes the way your computer recognizes the device and changes the way you transfer data to the player.

What video format can i use for my rca opal m43-a mp3 player? i have tried a few like wma and mp3 format but it doesnt seem to play.


Check the specification of your MP3 player to determine thetype of video file format it uses.Most common video files that MP3 players use are, AVI andWMV, there may be others such as FLV, MOV and DivX.If your player cannot play a video then it is an incompatiblevideo file format, then you need to convert that video file to a format thatyour MP3 player uses.Click on this link for instructions on converting videofiles for MP3 players :-http://www.fixya.com/support/r5874192-play_videos_mp3_player

I can not convert my videos to the player


This player only plays SMV files. sigmatel micro files. You can use the easy rip software that came with the opal. I like to use this program. http://www.soft29.com/freeware/smv_converter.htm It's a free app and does a much better job than the easy rip.

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.

    Opal 4208 wont play video files


    This device will only play SMV files. You will need to download two free programs Any Video Converter. http://www.any-video-converter.com/products/for_video_free/ And the other is http://www.soft29.com/freeware/smv_converter.htm SMV converter.
    Instally both programs. I use any video converter and changed it to mpeg. After the file is in mpeg then I use SMV converter. I do cutom use the largest screen format and highest on everything so its full screen. And the quailty is a heck of lot better the the easy rip free program. Give it a try and let me know if that works for you.

    Video converts, loads, plays...but is flipped (inverted).


    Discovered it was only happening when converting .mpgs to wmv. Therefore, converting my mpgs twice as follows:

    .mpg to wmv:
    then wmv to smv 

    ...fixed the problem. No more flipped/inverted video.

    FTR, I really love this player.

    Converting file to video format ( i.e. SMV format)


    Get another video converter and convert it to Windows Media Video (WMV) then convert it to SMV videos from there. IT works 100% Guaranteed.
