Each video player supports different formats and within those different formats there are different settings in relation to resolution, bit rate and audio.

You need to read your manual carefully and see exactly what format and settings you need to encode the video at. A populat one is: mp4 container, H264 video at 320x240 resolution, 720kpbs. AAC audio at 48kbps.

You usually get software with the players to convert video files to the right specification

There was no software with this player it is new
in the advert it said you do not need to convert video with this player. I will get back on to were i brought it from. do you no if i can i change the formant off the video i have taken so it will work on this player.

Try a different audio codec instead of AAC. Maybe MP3?

The manual for the video player should state what format video and audio should be in. It might be a case of trial and error. If the video is OK then leave it alone and try changing audio from MP3 to AC3 or PCM.

"in the advert it said you do not need to convert video with this player" - If this is so then try video as mpeg2 and audio as mpeg3 or AC3
