Hi everyone,

I've searched and searched, d/l several apps, experimented, etc. and am finally going to bed after no success.

I'm trying to put several .wmv videos on my av700 in .wmv format simply because they are smaller in file size then the .avi When I use WMP 11, it syncronizes, but when I try to play it in my av700, it starts to load, then says "Can't Play, Image Too Big" (or something similar). Is there a way to reduce to size before its transferred. I've even tried Allok's video converter, reducing size, then syncing in WMP, etc.

Am I stuck with .avi files only with the AV700?

Thank you

Windows Movie Maker always allow you to change the output file size just before exporting the proyect....

You need to open WMM and then browse and open your wmv file... onto it...
Then you click on "Save Movie File"... choose destination place... then when it shows the "best quality...." just click on "Show more choices"...
then "best fit to file size" and lower it until you see down on information about output details: Display Size ---> 320X240 or similar... not higher

Our 3rd Gen of archos do not support bigger display size of wmv files... than 352X288 and 800 kbps...

(note that .avi files can go up to 720X576 (pal) or 720X480 (ntsc))

Well that does not say much... The 10 MB file size... could be due to duration of the video.. or quality setting....

I usually play videos of around 500 kbps and 320x240 display size...
and that gives me a weight of

3.7 MB per minute of video (i know that the kbps and the output file size does not match when you put the numbers together but thats what i get...)

so if i have a video of 4 minutes i have a 15 MB file size...

The reason for ther 10Mb size, is that the resolution that the 105 plays is 160 x 128 and reducing the file size down to 10Mb is the only way to get it via WMM.
