View Full Version : Playing Avi File On Pda

23rd August 2006, 11:10 AM
Last week i transfered an avi video file that i took with my digi cam using active sync to my pda's sd card, when i search with media player, it cant find the file ? Using file explorer i can see it on the card but it wont play, do i need a plugin ?

I'm guessing that media player won't play AVI :confused-

I have never had the inclination to use WMP, adn immediately downloaded lots of other (free) media players.

What I've settled on is TCPMP (http://tcpmp.corecodec.org/download) which does many things I like (and lots more I never tried!)

I'd suggest converting to mpeg and it should play, but TCPMP is a
better media player :D

when using active sync it converts the file to a pda suitable file so i thought it should just play ? i will try converting it and see how i go.

I used movie maker to convert to .wmv and now it plays on the ipaq.
