Hi,

I recently bought a mp4-player via eBay. The manual says that video-files should be in AVI-format to be able to play them on the mp4-device. In the folder list, there is a pre-installed video which is indeed in AVI-format and which plays beautifully. However, when I upload an AVI-file to the player, he doesn't seem to recognise it. It is listed in the video-folder, but when I try to play it, I get the message that the file is not correct.
There was also a small disk that came with the player with a AVI-converter program on it, but the disc doesn't work. I contacted the seller of the item with the question if he knew of an alternative for the conversion-program on the disc and he linked me to a site where I could download a converter-program, but as it was downloading, my virusscanner gave a warning for a trojan horse.
I also tried to convert a file to mp4-format, but in that case, the player doesn't recognise the file as a video-file and it is not even listed in the video-folder.

Anyone who can help out please?

Somehow I question that recommendation. A quick search turned up the guide; http://forum.videohe...opic352374.html

Well, before I tried this program, I tried two others and none of them could convert to the right file for my specific player. No dought, of course, there are different types of players and each may have their own specific type of files which needed for being able to play them, but in my case, the one on the link I referred to was the only one that worked. :)

good to know. I wasn't sure I was going to be able to download it, it took so long to get it. Haven't installed it, but at least it passed the virus scan. So I can say that it worth a try.

It's free of any virus, that's for sure. I found the link via a French forum where many people suffered the very same problem with the very same mp4-player. If there would be anything wrong with this program, someone there would surely have noticed. I do understand your sceptisism, one can't be too careful these days. I'm not sure about spyware coming with the program though, maybe that's worth checking, but anyway: it works for sure and I can finally use my mp4-player not only for listening to music. :)

Download free video converter software for converting avi, wmv, mpeg, mov, vob, dvd, flv, mp4 and other video formats. I think this convert avi to mp4 software should be able to help you, you can try.
