    Are you sure your mp3 player is capable of supporting video? As it is, iPod was only capable of supporting video in it's most recent 4GB/8GB Nano release...

    Ipod has been able to support video since the 30 gb Ipod video came out Fall '06.

    Yes, but not on the Nano until the current generation that came out late this year.

    Re: mp3 problem

    If it's one of those Chinese mp3 players that only plays AMV files, you're going to need to convert them to AMV before you drop it on the device.

    There should be a tool to do so either on the device, or on a CD that came with the device. Unfortunately, it doesn't sound like it's as simple as "drag a file to the device and hit play".

    Re: mp3 problem

    The files apparently need to be transferred to MTV files. When I try to convert my video clips from a DVD it says something about installing codecs. I don't know which ones to install or if they're legal or if you can even use DVD's to do this. I need some help.

    Are you trying to convert directly from a DVD to MTV?

    That probably won't work without a few steps in between. You'll need to get the DVD into some sort of "computer" media, i.e. AVI. For that you'll need something like DVD Decrypter and AutoGK. DVD Decrypter would pull the files from the DVD onto your hard drive, while AutoGK would encode it to a movie file. After you get the movie file, you'd have to re-encode it with the MTV encoder to get the final file you'd copy to your player.

    A pretty big pain, eh?

    thanks again, it could take a while, but it'll be worth it eventually

    Messing with DVDs is a bit of a pain, but once you get the main video into an AVI or MPEG stream (outside of the VOB files that come from the DVD), it's a lot easier.

    Re: mp3 problem

    i'm running into a problem again. after i put the DVD files onto my hard drive using the DVD Decrypter, I tried using the AutoGK thing, but it said that the file type was not supported. Do you know a way to fix this.

    Re: mp3 problem

    Nevermind, i'm finding that only the files that are VOB are allowed. I don't know if that's normal, but do I even need the IFO or BUP files?

    Which file are you trying to open?

    Do you have a directory full of .ifo files and .vob files?

    You'll want to open the .ifo file for the biggest "group" of file names. i.e. if you have a directory that looks like this:

    Code:
    12/24/2007  08:38 AM    <DIR>          .
    12/24/2007  08:38 AM    <DIR>          ..

    You want to select VTS_06_0.IFO, and for a movie, you'll want to select the longest PGC (if there are multiple PGCs).
