I haven't tryed to convert a .mp4 using the software that came with the Opal...I have converted other formats that weren't .mp4 and it worked just fine...you might have to try to find some different software that will convert .mp4 over to .smv...good luck...I will do some looking around if I find anything I will post it...

You have to contvert the video file to a .smv format...you should have got a setup disk with the mp3 player when you bought it...that disk has a converter on it you can use...I hope this helps...

How do i put videos on my opal mp3


Log onto the RCA website and download the RCA SMV Video Converter. The Opal only plays videos that are in one specific format. This converter will put your videos into that exact format (see Resources below).
  • Install the RCA SMV Video Converter once you have downloaded the software.
  • Open the RCA SMV Video Converter software to begin putting videos onto your RCA Opal.
  • Connect the RCA Opal to your computer using the USB chord that came with the device.
  • Wait until the RCA SMV Video Converter software reads that the device has been connected. You will know this when the bottom of the software screen reads “Player Detected: Opal 1GB 2GB.”
  • Select the “Browse” option to find any videos that are on your computer which you wish to add to the RCA Opal.
  • Click the box next to “Transfer output files to OPAL 1GB 2GB after conversion is complete” after you have selected all of the videos which you wish to convert. This will automatically add the videos to your RCA Opal after they have been converted.
  • Click the “Convert” box after you have selected all of the videos. The videos will automatically begin to convert to the correct format. Once they have been converted, your videos will automatically upload to your RCA Opal.

    Easy rip does not reconize the opal mp3 player is plugged to the usb port All of the ports on my computor work.


    2 ways to fix.

    1st way. Goto had add new hardware wizard.
    Have computer find new hardware.
    Turn your player to MTP instead of msc
    To do that goto player settings and change protocal.
    Have the computer look for new hardware that is MTP.
    2nd way
    Don't use the easy rip.
    Mp3 you can drag and drop right into the folder option of the player.
    IF you want music video or movie's on it you have to.
    download Any Video Convertor http://www.any-video-converter.com/products/for_video_free/
    It changes files to mpeg or any file you mpeg is the best for the next step.
    Then download this. Sigmatel Motion Video http://www.soft29.com/freeware/smv_converter.htm
    Its also a free. Convet the mpeg to SMV file. and drag and drop into you opal video folder.
    works great but takes a little practice with the settings.

    How do you add videos on a RCA Opal?????


    alright, its pretty easy all you have to do (if your using a windows based computer) is go to the start menu in the bottom right hand corner and go to My Computer. If your opal is plugged in with the mini-usb it will show up in the disk drive part of the window that opens. double click it and youll see the folders...drag the videos to the Videos folder

    Moving files to Windows media player for transfer to opal mp3


    You should be able to just drag and drop the folder into either the media player, or directly into the opal. To drop files into the opal, just click the my computer icon on your desktop, then after the window opens you should see the opal icon listed with the other drives you have. Then open up your folder with the music, highlight the ones you wish to move onto the opal, and drag and drop the file over the opal icon. If you did it correctly, windows will show you that it is copying the files to the opal. Good luck and enjoy!
