Question about SanDisk Sansa View 8GB MP3 Player - Black

1 Answer

Sansa View I can put the videos on the Sansa View, but only the audio part of the video plays. One can't see the video. I converted the file using the Sansa Media Converter, but even after that the video doesn't work. The same problem is there with photos. Only the thumbnails can be seen. The photo doesn't show fullscreen. Do you think firmware updates will help? Is there some damage to my mp4 that can't be repaired?

    Me too. I tried both the Sansa Media Converter and "Any Video Converter". When I play the video file on the View, it only plays the audio.

I want to know how to put videos on my sandiisk


he Sandisk technical support told me you must use the Sansa Converter to transfer a video file.I also came across this,


DVDShrink 3.2, its free and can dl from http://www.doom9.org/Soft21/Vobtools/dvdshrink32setup.zip
Any Video Converter Free edition, AVC can dl from http://www.any-video-converter.com/products/for_video_free/
If DVD is copy protected I use AnyDVD from www.Slysoft.com There is a free trial period but well worth the money and has lifetime upgrades for free

First use Shrink to rip the DVD. If its got copy protection then first launch AnyDVD then relaunch shrink
You can set shrink to either rip the entire DVD or just the main movie and its its pretty self explanitory, Just select the one audio you want or go to a site like doom9.org if need further info on it. I usually click the Reauthor button and select just the main title and the one audio track I want. then click backup

Then Run AVS. Select the vob files you want to put on your View. For encoding I use the folllowing settings:

Profile that worked for me using VOB sources is : Customized MP4 movie, others say to use Mobil phone mp4 but I have bad luck with that one myself.

From the menu: Edit, Options:

Audio Tab:
-MPEG Type: MPEG-4
-Object Type: Main
-Encode: CBR
-MP3 Volume: Default
-Audio Quality: Default

Video Tab:
-Video Driver: DirectX
Video Resize must be checked for non-native 320x240 (4:3) video sources. Use “Fit to Width” for widescreen video sources, use “Fit to Height” for long video sources. Both “Fit” modes must have checked “Round to 16 Pixels”. In this way you preserve the aspect ratio of the original source, while still creating a View compliant 320x240 video.


From the output video settings box on the lower right:

Video Options:
-Video Codec: x264 (IMHO produces slightly better video, but slightly larger tho)
-Video Size: 320x240
-Video Bitrate: 512
-Video Framerate: 29.97 (again 29.97 for NTSC DVD and other NTSC sources, others keep at their original framerate, this will keep audio in sync) I set to 30 fps and have had no problems so far

Audio Options:
-Audio Codec: aac
-Audio Bitrate: 128
-Sample Rate: 44100
-Audio Channel: 2
-Disable Audio: No
-A/V Sync: Default
-Audio Track: Default

Click encode and it will create the proper format files.

Then to add the videos to your View open 2 explorer windows one browse to the folder the files were outputed to and the other go to your view and open the Movies folder.
Then just drag the files from yoour HD to the View folder.

To be fair some of this info I got from other posts here but so far its worked the best for me

You must use the Sansa Media Converter to add video files - and you must have the latest version of Quicktime for those files to play properly

You will need to have your Sansa connected to do the conversion - the manual is in error on this point, unless you have outside software like Media Monkey.
