Bought one for my daughter today- been trying since 10am to get video on it.
To say it would be an easy thing to do is an absolute farcical experience, bordering on the extreme- I am surprised given my normal level of patience that this hasnt been thrown at a wall or boxed up to be returned...
Okay, tired to drag and drop straight into it through my computer- MP4 files arent recognised...
Spend a few hours searching for Philips Songbird- why oh why can this be mentioned in the set up guide???
Okay, try and use that to convert the files to the 'right' format- still no joy and keep on getting the message: that it does not support video.
Yeah right, I should have thought that the box saying Video/ MP4 player wouldnt play video...
Okay, lets try and use a converter program after the Argos Q&A page says that it supports:
After looking into your query, I can confirm that the Philips SA060 8GB MP3 Player with Video - Red will be able to play videos transferred from a computer. The device supports the following video formats: MPEG4 SP, MP4 (AVI)/ MPEG4 AVC/ H.264, RMVB, WMV9.
Okay, lets spend the rest of th day trying to convert one file to see what works...
Well I can say that as of 19.49 on the 14th July NOTHING does.
What a complete waste of a day, and money, and my time.
Now I've got to explain to my daughter that it wont be playing Yogi Bear for her and its going back to the shop because it is in fact not user friendly and daddy isnt able to fix it....
Seriously any advice on getting video on to it before it does end up being thrown against a wall??
