I transffered videos of format MP4 but when i play it on my walkman, it says that the format is not supported. I tried to convert it with videora ipod convertor, any video converter and AVS converter but...

When it comes to video formats there is also video encoders... Video encoders can be different inside any format and for example mp4. When converting a file go to advanced options and change the encoder codec, just mess with it will a video becomes watch able on your mp4.

My mp4 won't play videos?

This is either a manufacturers defect with the unit OR you could not have your MP4 files in the proper format. Yes there are different formats of MP4 and it can get really confusing if you don't know which of the formats your player supports. Try getting a list of specs for the player or let me know what the make and model is and i can get them for you

Mitone MITMP25 plays only videos in MTV format, so you should use the software included to convert all videos into MTV format before you can play those. See page 21 in user manual :-)

Warning File Format Error

It seems that your trying to play a video that the media player does not support. The video works on your computer because the computer supports many more video file formats that the media player does. Make sure that the video your trying to play has a .mp4 file extension after the file name, meaning that it is a mp4 file. Try another known working mp4 video file.
good luck and i hope this has helped.

Can't play videos

You need to use the Media Converter that came with the installation CD - must run video files only through it. Check manufacturer's website for software if you no longer have install CD.
