I don't know where to get FLV codec, but I know when I installed Leawo Free FLV Converter, I can watch FLV video with Windows Media Player. On the other hand, I also can convert all of my videos to a lots of video format.

If the device offers the ability to create folders (like rock, folk, classical) that are selectable, create one called podcasts. If not, retitle all the podcasts so that the file names all start with a Z, and then at least they will be at the bottom of a master list when played in sequence. Doesn't help in shuffle mode though, as the podcasts will still play randomly if you can't isolate them to a separate folder.

Usually lack of free memory will cause this.

you should have Phillips Songbird Software that came with your mp3 player that will do all the converting for you after downloading .flv video which you can find at this link . just find your player and click on it . on the next page under Product support highlighted in blue click Software & drivers . the next page click on the exe.


as for .smv format video sites almost all are .flv . so if for any reason you cannot find , or the converter software from phillips doesn't work for your particular model the 2 converter links below will work . you need the 2 converters to convert flv to avi then convert avi to smv . reasons being the smv converter only converts certain video formats . the two programs are free , and i tried them both and they work fine . the only thing is i don't have your mp3 player , here is a link for smv


here is the link for the other converter , just make sure that the format is set to AVI(xvid) Video

Firstly, I'd suggest that you do a soft reset of your player. You will find the reset button next to the 'power on' button on the side of the player. Please hold the Reset button using a pen tip or other sharp object for 10 seconds. Now turn it on.

If that doesn't work, I'd suggest that you format your player or repair it using Philips songbird. Contents may be removed by using this function. So make sure to back up your contents.

On your computer desktop, double-click "My computer". Double-click on the MP3 player's icon. Right-click on the Internal Storage icon and then select "Format".

Launch Songbird and then connect your player to your computer. Select "Repair" under the "Tools" menu. Follow the instructions given by the pop-up windows to perform the repair process.

Hope this works.
