SOURCE: can't play videos

You need to use the Media Converter that came with the installation CD - must run video files only through it. Check manufacturer's website for software if you no longer have install CD.

When i try to play video it say file format error


Hii,

You may not be able to play your video due to any type of damage to file. So in order to repair unplayable mp4 you need to have Repair mp4 which easily regenerates a new mp4 file. Any user may get it over internet for evaluation purpose.

I can't play videos, because it keeps saying format error, and it's annoying


Hi ehoffman7196,
I see you get an error "format error" you mentioned this means that the mp3 player could not play the file you are trying to play.
check the format of the video is it mp3 is it avi is it wmv or possible it may be mp4 that is one reason since you mentioned that the error is format error then it cannot read the file mp4 is the latest format for a video file check first if it is then it really will not play at all.

I tried putting videos with all different file formats onto my Archos 3 vision -- mp4, wmv, avi... But each time I input it, and try to play it, a 'File Format Error' Sign pops up and it won't play... I...


Well, one thing u need to know is that Archos 3 vision cant support all file formats and codecs. U need to transcode video files to compatible format with Archos 3 vision. I recommend u Pavtube Video Converter(http://www.pavtube.com/video_converter/) which can transcode between any video files, and it still offers u foramt presets for Archos.

Warning File Format Error


It seems that your trying to play a video that the media player does not support. The video works on your computer because the computer supports many more video file formats that the media player does. Make sure that the video your trying to play has a .mp4 file extension after the file name, meaning that it is a mp4 file. Try another known working mp4 video file.
good luck and i hope this has helped.
