There are several steps that you have to go through to get video working on this player. First, you have to use a third-party utility to rip your commercial DVD so that the encryption is stripped off; I use Handbrake for the Mac to accomplish this, and I specify the resulting output file to be a 640 x 480 .AVI file with ffmpeg encoding. There are undoubtably similar Windows utilities for ripping DVD's, you'll have to research that part yourself on a site like tucows.com. Then you have to process this AVI file with the SMV utility supplied with the player on a Windows machine. The important thing to know is that THE DEFAULT SETTINGS WON'T GENERATE A WORKABLE VIDEO FILE! Dumb, I know, but that's why this player is cheap. What you have to do is select the custom settings mode of the converter, then select a resolution of 128 x 160, a sound bandwidth of 22 kb, a video bandwidth of 50 kb, and rotate left for the output. This will give you a workable SMV file that can be copied into the MOVIES folder of the player (it has to be in the special folder, or it won't find it). By the way, both of the conversion steps are pretty slow, depending on your computer's speed, so be patient. I found it best to rip one chapter of a DVD to prove out the process before committing to the all night process of ripping an entire DVD.

Trying to put videos on my trio


I FOUND THE SOLUTION!
Hi. If you're like me you just bought one of Mach Speed's mp3/media players (I have the Trio/Eclipse Model G2, it looks like the Ipod Nano). I bought it at Big Lots for about $30. Everything works except i can't get video to play on it! Here's what i found after hours of trial and error:
Seems mine (hopefully this will work for yours) will ONLY play either FLV or RM files. If you have AVI or other kinds of video files you can use this great software to convert to FLV:
http://download.cnet.com/Koyote-Free-FLV-Converter/3000-2194_4-10832044.html?tag=mncol
It's free and it won't put a watermark on the video...which is great 'cause all the other free ones out there will. Anyway i hope this helps.

My onyx won't load movies or videos to play


Its ok. You aren't alone. First you need to download youtube downloader and an smv converter. From there download a video and using the youtube downloader, convert it to a windows media video file or a .wmv. After that, convert it to an smv file with the smv converter and copy it to the video file on your onyx mp3. Email me if this worked: Spongodude@gmail.com

I can not put videos on My ONYX 2GB


You can load video files onto your player by plugging the player into your computer. It should try to autorun at which point you should select view folders.

If it doesn't autorun just go to Start>My Computer>Removable Disk

Locate the VIDEO folder and put your movie files in it without any subfolders.
Properly disconnect it from the computer, turn the player on, and press the menu button and select video from the list and play.
