Video format help, please

Post by Catire »

Hi, everyone.
I just bought an Archos 504, seems to be old new stock, at a good price. Seems very nice, but I'm a bit confused about the video formats. Is there ANY video format that this will play right out of the box? I don't mind converting my videos, I just can't figure out what this will play. Anyway, I'd be grateful for any help. Thanks.

It will play Mpeg4 files in an AVI container, that is basically DivX and Xvid simple profile videos up to 720 pixels wide and some Windows Media Video files. Sound can be MP3 or WAV in stereo and also Windows Media.

If you have the 2 optional plugins installed it can then play H264 with AAC sound, and/or DVD files (Mpeg2 with AC3 sound) both stereo.
