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!!!..

You need to adjust the resolution to 720x480 and you will be fine.

Max res for video files is 720 x 576

How to convert a videos


Launch your video converter program if you have one.

If you do not have a video converter program, consider free programs such as AVC Video Converter http://download.cnet.com/any-video-converter/3000-2194_4-10661456.html

or

Prism Video Converter

http://dw.com.com/redir?edId=3&siteId=4&oId=1770-20_4-0&ontId=2194_4&lop=linktitle&ltype=dl_elite_gen&pid=12172333&mfgId=10012381&merId=10012381&ttag=lst-1&destUrl=http%3A%2F%2Fdownload.cnet.com%2FPrism-Video-File-Converter-Plus%2F3000-2194_4-1064



These programs are cross-platform applications, compatible with both Windows and Mac OS X operating systems.


Click "Add Files" or "Add Video," depending on the program that you are using.

Locate the video file you want to convert from the folder you saved it in, then click "Open" to import it to the video converter program.


Play your video on the monitor to ensure that it is the video that you want to convert.

Select the video format you want to convert your video to in the "Output format" or "Profile" window.


Choose from a number of video formats, such as MP4, AVI, MOV or WMV. Different models of MP3 players use different video formats, so refer to your MP3 player's documentation for the compatible format.


Select the output video size you want to use. Video sizes vary with different MP3 players. Some MP3 players support 320x240, while others support 640x480.

Refer to your MP3 player's documentation for the supported video size.


Select the audio codec that you want to use for your output video file.

Some of the most common audio formats include MP3, WMA, AAC and WAV.


Audio codecs compress audio with different output quality settings, so refer to your MP3 player's documentation for the supported audio codec.

Select 2 or "Stereo" in the channels box for a balanced left and right audio output.


Click "Browse" and select the folder where you want to save the output video.

Select a folder or location that you will be able to remember and access quickly.


Click "Convert/Encode" to begin the video conversion process.

A status bar displays the progress of the conversion.

When the process is finished, your video is in the format that you selected


hope this helps

File format not supported...what does that mean


Not supported format concerns one or more of the next items:
  • size: the memory size of the file ( too small or too large)
  • layout: the size of a frame for video or photo, bitrate or identification tags for music,
  • extension: the suffix added after the dot file name
e.g. photo1.jpg or photo2.tif
  • digital rights management: copy protected files sometimes can
be played, but cannot be transferred mostly.

Media like photos and videos
1. Need to have the supported format as required for the software called "Media Converter" on the computer.
2. A Media Converter must be used to convert the format into a model that can be read on the player before it is accepted to do a transfer.

Music
1. Must have the supported format as required for the player.
The identification called ID-tag contains the name of the song, artist, album etc.
The bitrate of music says something about the quality / sample rate
of the song: when converting cd audio to e.g. song1.wav or song2.mp3
(called "ripping") the quality depends on the presettings of the audio
conversion.

How to add video to Sony Walkman NWZ-A726


no it has to meet certain criteria. What converter are you using?

if you look in the manual at the sony site:

http://esupport.sony.com/CA/perl/swu-list.pl?mdl=NWZA726

on page 126 it shows the formats. It wont let me copy it here sorry. But I usually use Handbrake and select the ipod settings. You can also use wondershare. it has walkman settings but it's only a trial.

Loading video to my sony NWZ-E436F.


I just got it to work!

I modified the mp4 file using awesome program called ‘SUPER’ (a video/audio conversion program) I did two things.
1) Put the video size to 320X240.
2) I put the the bitrate to 1,008kbps (the .pdf manual on the CD that came with the player states that it can handle mp4 videos up to a max 1,024kbps).

Unable to convert video


Thanks to ZZAMAMEE I found Kate's Video Converter (free) 4.0 and I was able to use it to convert the video into a format that the video conversion software supplied with the Coby MP-705 was able to recognize. To do the conversion select AVI, then advanced. Next select XviD MPEG-4 Codec for the video compressor,and WMAudio Encoder DMO for the Audio Compressor. Select the Resize Output Target size of 320 X 240 pixels and for Type select Fit to Target size, then apply. This will take you back to the original conversion screen. To select your output directory you need to select Settings, then select the settings option and browse to your output directory. After you select this then select the convert button. At this time you can change the name of the video if you want.

Now you can open Video Converter (the software that came with the Coby player), and use your new video as the input file. Select the output file, and you can also copy it straight to the player by selecting the MP3 Player tab and navigating to your video folder on your player. Hilight the input video name in the list of files in the bottom portion of the program, then select the little cog icon midway down on the right side and set the output file type to AVI, the size to 220 X 176 and select OK. Hit the conversion button and once the conversion is complete and it has copied your files you are done and ready to watch the videos.
