Ok first oh all whats the format the videos are in. Seconed mpeg and avi are the main ones that work smoothly. Third flv and flash will not convert the files reason being not campatiable. If flv or flash is the only format you have of them then use a online free converter Ex. www.cnet.com/topic/flv-converter.html..

How do you load movies on to the philips gogear aria?


Almost same as with the any sanza mp3 player

but instead of Sanza Media Converter you need Media Converter for Philips
1) download "Media Converter for Philips"
2) install the download
3) sync your Philips gogear with your computer
4) load "Media Converter for Philips"
5) Drag videos to the converter
6) click convert

the videos will automatically be transferred to your gogear in from there

No cd for go gear to convert videos


You can get it by going to www.usasupport.philips.com
Enter in your exact model #
Click on the link for your exact model #
Click on "software & drivers"
Click on "Media Converter Software" - download and install

You have to use the Philips (Arcsoft) Media Converter to convert/transfer videos. If the converter is not recognizing a specific video type - FLV, for instance - download a free program called Riva FLV Encoder and convert the videos to AVI format first. Then the Philips Media Converter will recognize them.

The Philips Media Converter is not capable of converting an entire DVD - you will have to acquire video editing software, and then break up the DVD files into 15-minute chunks, and then convert each chunk.

If you are getting a codec error, do a google search for free video codecs - they are out there. Windows Codec Pack and downloading the latest version of quicktime will give you most of these needed codecs.

This player is not capable of playing copyright-protected videos - so don't even bother with them.

Additional information is available both from Philips website and from Arcsoft's website.

PHILIPS MEDIA CONVERTER


First, I would go to the Philips website and download the updated version of the Philips Media Converter - it will recognize more file types. If the new media converter still does not recognize your files, download a program called Riva FLV Encoder, and convert your video files to AVI format. The Philips Media Converter will then recognize the videos.

How do you add videos to a gogear


To add a video from YouTube that is in, say FLV format, you will have to get the updated version of the Philips Media Converter from Philips website. If the updated version sill does not recognize your video, you will have to get a free program like Riva FLV Encoder to convert the video to AVI format. Once it is in AVI format, the Philips Media Converter wil lrecognize the file.

How do i get my videos from my computer to go to the media convert


Download the upgraded version of the Philips (Arcsoft) Media Converter from www.usasupport.philips.com. If the upgraded version still does not recognize certain file types, download a free program called Riva FLV Encoder - it is supposed to be a program that converts video formats to FLV format, but it has the neat feature of being able to do the opposite. Any video file that the Philips does not recognize can be converted to AVI format using Riva. Make sure the audio feature is enabled in Riva or you will get picture and no sound. Once it is converted to an AVI, the Philips Media Converter will see it, and you can either convert the file to a folder, or you can transfer it directly to the GoGear. Note: the Philips Media Converter will not properly convert video files that are longer than 15 minutes long - in order to transfer an entire movie, you will have to use video editing software to break the long file into 15-minute chunks. You will then have to convert the chunks using the Philips Media Converter.

You have to install the Philips (Arcsoft) Media Converter that came with the installation CD - if you have lost the CD, you can actually get the new, upgraded Media Converter from www.usasupport.philips.com. The Media Converter can't handle full-length movies - it is more for shorter, You-Tube style videos. If the Media Converter doesn't recognize your videos, first get a free FLV codec online. If it still does not recognize the videos, download Riva FLV Encoder and convert any non-recognized video to AVI format. Then the Philips Media Converter will recognize the video, and you can run it through the converter. The Philips website also has a link to the full user guide which explains some of this, if you have lost the user manual.

Philips media converter wil not convert all my videos. I cannot convert my videos to my player


You can get codecs by installing the latest version of quicktime, or by separately finding mpeg-2, mpeg-4, and avi codecs - just do an internet search. They're available for free.

The videos that are not converting are either:
1) Too long
2) Copyrighted music videos
3) In a format that the converter cannot recognize. Get the Riva FLV Encoder - it can convert FLV to AVI, or anything else to AVI.

Video converter


Media Converter
Click on Start --> All Programs --> Philips Digital Audio Player -> Philips Media Converter (or just straight to Philips Media Converter - varies slightly by model).
If it's still not there, go to www.philips.com/support to download the Media Converter Software
