Anyones know how to play flv video on satio media player?i did'nt see the playlist of flv video on media player...need to play and choose video from file manager to watch the video,but can't r


The problem is your satio media player is not support flv file, if you want to solve this problem, you just need a flv video converter to convert this flv to the common video that supported by the media player, maybe you can try to convert the video to mp4. Good luck.

PartIII. How to convert FLV to SWF on mac

PartI. FLV VS. SWF

What is FLV?

FLV files (Flash Video Files), a binary file format, are composed of a video bit stream and an audio bit stream and deliver web video over the Internet with Macromedia Flash Player. FLV files are considered to be streaming video files. If you put FLV file in website, you don't have to download the entire file before playing. FLV content may also be embedded within SWF files. The audio and video data within FLV files are encoded in the same way as they are within SWF files. Unlike SWF format, FLV do not have maximum of 16000 frames limitation and ideally for large video file size. Notable users of the FLV format files are YouTube, Yahoo video, Google Video, Reuters.com, My Space, Facebook video etc.

What is SWF?

SWF (Shockwave Flash)- The file format SWF is a vector graphics file format, not streaming media. SWF file can be played directly in web browser, such as Internet Explorer. However, FLV file can not be playback directly, because it requires a separate SWF file which reads the video content from FLV. The SWF file that plays FLV file is called online flash player. Intended to be small enough for publication on the web, SWF files can contain animations or applets of varying degrees of interactivity and function.

FLV and SWF are currently very popular over the Internet. When you have downloaded many cartoon movie files which are in SWF file format from Internet or downloaded a video from video sharing website like Youtube to your Mac, you must want to play them in the formats of FLV and SWF. However the default Player on Mac, QuickTime Player, can't playback them. Luckily, the problem will be fixed when you use SWF&FLV Player.

Your Windows Media Player couldn't play DVD format because maybe you forgot to select such file type for which you want WMP to be the default player. To troubleshoot this problem please see the following steps:

I have downloaded the Youtube grabber file to My Documents and that was successful. But now that I am trying to play the clips on windows media player, it will not play. Says something about wrong file...


No usually media player will not play this type of file it will be a FLV type file format.
You can download some stand alone player to play the fiiles like this.

OR you can also download and install this package, this will allow Media PLayer to play the UTube files as well.
Both works well.
I hope this will help your out.


And IF your problem was solved, kindly do Rate!

I can't open saved flv file


Do you have a flv player? Windows media player can't play FLV. Either get a flv converter to convert it to something which is more easily playable (have a look at some of these http://en.softonic.com/s/free-flv-converter ) or use a youtube downloader which can convert straight from flv ( http://youtubedownload.altervista.org/ ) or get a flv player ( http://download.cnet.com/FLV-Player/3000-13632_4-10467081.html )

I reccomend using a converter, as you'll be able to share videos more easily and watch them on a number of devices.

IVE BEEN TRYING TO GET VIDEOS ON 4EVER!!!!


This player accepts MP4, not WMV. Here's what you want to do:
First, try the Sony Media Manager - it is available for free from Sony's website if you have lost your installation CD.

If the Media Manager won't recognize FLV, download a free program called Riva FLV Encoder. Convert the FLV files to AVI.

Once the videos are converted to AVI, use the Sony Media Manager to convert the videos to MPEG-4, and they will now be usable by your Walkman.

Good luck!

Video conversion


Video (eg: YouTube Videos) can be dragged onto the PVP such as Philips Sa5285/37 without using ArcSoft or Windows Video Player. Use "Mozilla FireFox 3.0.5" with "Download Helper 3.5.1 Add On" and download the selected Video from YouTube in the prescribed manner and then drag it onto your PVP by opening up "My Computer" in Windows and finding the PVP Icon (make sure your device is connected) - open it and find the Video Folder and if it is not there create one as you would on your PC. This works well as long as the Video is converted to AVI by the Add On Download Helper Convertor. Open "Preferences" window after opening FireFox Browser and opening Download Helper window. Select "Conversion" ,Double Click "Convert FLV Files From ALL to AVI Default" from main window( this would have been set as a rule ). Then Select Input Files with Extension "FLV" then "from site" "ALL" then for "Output" select AVI(mpeg4+mp3) then selct "Details" & then "General" and then "Output Format" "AVI Format" then "Video Codec" "mpeg4" then "Audio Codec" "libmp3lame". Do not go to "Advanced" and change anything -those boxes are left unchecked and just "Custom AVI" comes up for Video Format. Good Luck Friends! DWH
