From the AV500 manual:

Video specification:

MPEG-4 SP with B-Frames2 with stereo sound. Near DVD quality up to 720x480 @ 30 f/s (NTSC),720x576 @ 25 f/s (PAL), AVI file format. WMV93 (including protected files) up to 352x288 @ 30 f/s,and 800 KBit/s

That's all. No .m4v, .flv

The AV500 is very limited as to what it can play back. The sound should be MP3 for video. You may have to convert the video.

The manual for the AV500 is here: http://www.archos.com/support/support_t ... us&lang=en
