The installation CD has the Philips Media Converter on it

If you lost the CD, then go to www.usasupport.philips.com to get the software - just enter your model #, and go to the software & drivers section

Instructions for using the media converter are in your manual, which is also on the Philips website

Note: the converter will not recognize FLV and other popular video formats, even if you know the location of the file

You will have to use a FLV to AVI converter or whatever the case may be

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.

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.

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
