Just convert the movie to MPEG4 ASP (Level 5), XviD, DivX 4, DivX 5 or WMV9 (max resolution of 704x 480 @ 30fps, 720 X 576 @ 25fps) format on your desktop computer an then load it onto Archos

I PURCHASE A VIDEO PLUG- IN FOR MAY ARCHOS 605 AND DON'T KNOW HOW TO MAKE THIS VIDEO PLUG INSTALL IN MY ARCHOS,I HAVE A MAC COMPUTER


You need to plug your Archos into your pc and explore the drive.
Copy the plugin from your pc to the root of the Archos.
The Archos should say that it's found software and start installing.

Video conversion


Hello Andrew,
Even though the website claims Archos can play videos of DVD resolution it cannot play videos of such big resolution 800 x 480..To display the full DVD resolution, you would either have to buy the HD add-on plugin (presumably for $20 as it is not available yet), which allows resolution higher than 720x480, or to buy the MPEG2 plugin, which allows you to play a raw DVD VOB file...So also it plays videos of Square pixels,So try to reduce a bit of resolution to 720x480....!!!!...Better Reduce the Resolution of the video to 740 x 480 and the bit rate while Converting, so Your Archos can play the MOvie Completely and you can watch it...Also I hope the Embeded Subtitles in the movie(MP4) doesnt work for which you have to get a seperated Plug-in i guess...Thank you!!!...

Don forget to rate the solution..

Please post back for further assistance...

Good Regards!!!..

Need to know quick


if you are putting a vob file on to the archos you will need to get the cinema plug-in from archos.com to play it then you just copy and past on to your archos. but it is better if you use a divx converter. you can get this for free just type it in to google. the converter will make the vob file into a avi file which is much smaller then you should just be able to copy and past on to your archos.

Archos is not claiming compatibility with vista, even with their latest firmware upgrade - sorry

The video plugin you bought is so that you may watch Videos by transferring them from your computer. But what you are trying to do cannot be done because your archos browser does not come with flash so you cannot view videos in a website. Unfortunately it just cannot be done. I also have a 704 and was very disapointed to learn that I cannot watch videos from websites.

Placing films onto the 504


I have put plenty of DVDs onto my Archos, but I use the optional cradle which connect to the TV as well as DVD players. You simply connect the DVD player onto it and play your dvd, which switching on the Recorder function on your unit.

Alternatively, can you convert the DVD onto your PC and then transfer onto the Archos in normal fashion, or is this what you are saying you tried to do already?
