    :( Hi All
    Recently got my GP2X. Wouldn't run my .avi files - came up with 'not supported file' Wouldn't even run the demo .avi file on the archive site. Duly updated & patched to v1.1 firmware - but same error

    This thread has a link to a tutorial I've not tried but might help. :)

    I encoded all of my files to .avi with xvid or divx with autogk and they run perfect with the newest firmware.... i have no idea what's wrong.... are you sure you installed the firmware correctly?

    what you need to do is install div converter which you can download by searching for it on goole, then download it and if you convert them to divx format you can them rename the file to "VIDEONAME.avi" if you no what i mean


    you also need to go to windows explorer and change the settings some how, there is a file on the forum on how to do it, lol


    anyway, if you still have any more probs, just ask :)

    I've also had the same Video problems, and was unable to run the demo avi.

    I downloaded Fairuse Wizard 2, and have had no problems so far. Its very easy to use, with no sync probs.

    Wow, I can't even get that far. Even mpg files (the pinguin girl) don't even bother showing up under "Movie player"...

    I don't think mpg files are supported yet..... stick to divx or xvid avi's.

    :p Hi All
    Thanks for the answers you gave me. I can now run my .AVI files. I used the tutorial to convert them to DIVX using VirtualDub- though windows did complain about the DivX codec I used.

    Regards

    i'm not sure...... i've heard of this happening but it's never happened to me. Search the boards, if you don't find anything then make a new topic.
