Question about Philips GOGEAR SA6045 MP3 Player

2 Answers

Dear sirs, I use a Philips GoGear ViBE 4GB MP3 player. As you know, it plays videos only in smv format. I have converted some videos into smv format using a smv converter, but the new files were not been accepted by the player. What kind of smv converter is the appropriate? In addition the smv demo video file which is installed in the mp3 player, is not playable by the pc, although I use a smv player software. Only the sound track is playable. Best regards Konstantinos

I thought that the Songbird program (that comes with the Philips Gogear Vibe) converts the video(s) for you? In other words, import a video file onto Songbird, and it should make it compatible for the device.
**Note: I run Linux, and Songbird isn't "Linux friendly", so I haven't tried it yet, but if you are running a Windows computer, it shouldn't be too difficult.
**If you don't have the Philips Songbird installed, you can download it from their site. Go here: www.philips.com/songbird

I can't convert my videos to the format that the Philips GoGear Vibe can support.


Check the specification of your MP3 player to determine thetype of video file format it uses. Most common video files that MP3 players use are, AVI andWMV, there may be others such as FLV, MOV and DivX. If your player cannot play a video then it is anincompatible video file format, then you need to convert that video file to aformat that your MP3 player uses.

I can't play videos in my phillips go gear vibe sa2vbe04.


Your player can play video file if its format is suitable. If you install the Philips songbird software you can convert your files with it and the player will play them after files transferred.

The software is downloadable via this link:

Hello experts! How do I convert movies from WMV to the format supported by a Phillips Gogear vibe Mp3 player(smv), without downloading any foreign software? What can Rhapsody do, if anything?


You can't. You need to install a program that can convert video files to another format to another that suits your MP3 player.
There are commercial programs as well as freeware programs on the Internet.
I suggest you Google search for these programs.

Not able to play video in philips gogear pls suggets


Hello,

Media players need the matching video format: for GoGear Vibe it is SMV.
To convert video from AVI to SigmaTel Motion Video, use the Media Converter Software from the manufacturer. For the videos you'd like to convert, be sure to update video codecs in Windows Media Player 10 or higher.

Vibe players have different display sizes, so you'll need the matching Converter for your player.
When you have the United States version SA5285/37 next site gives all support, including the Arcsoft video converter:
http://www.p4c.philips.com/cgi-bin/dcbint/cpindex.pl?ctn=SA5285/37&slg=en&scy=US
note
There's and update for the Arcsoft converter, for downloading directly YouTube films:
click on EXTRAS at the top right hand corner of the Arcsoft main screen.
At the pull down menu click UPDATE AND PATCHES, Arcsoft will check
and let user download and install the updated Stream Ripper feature
( streaming videos need flv video codec )

WHAT KIND OF VIDEO DOES MY PHILLIPS GOGEAR(2 GB)SUPPORTS


It plays video in smv format. I was just able to figure out how to do it and now it works great. The main thing to remember is to use the converter that came on the software (came with the philips mp3 player) and it will work.

I tried to use a 3rd party application to convert to smv format and when I loaded it onto the philips 3020 it wouldn't play. I used the the software it came with and it worked.

The tricky thing about this software is that it will only work with files in wmv format and then it will convert it to smv format which will play perfectly on the philips 3020. I

n my case I had to convert from my avi format to wmv and then convert to smv just to get it to play but it was worth it.

Hope this helps guys!
