MP5 players are a combination of MP3 audio and MP4 video players. With such a device, you can not only listen to the music but also watch videos. To place a video onto your MP5 player, the video must be in the MP4 format. Once it is in the correct format, you can import the content into your MP5 player using a direct connection with your computer system.
Things You'll Need
- MP5 player
- MP4 video converter
- USB cable
Open your Internet browser. Download a video converter from the Web if your video isn't currently MP4. You can find such a program from sites such as ImToo.com, MP4-converter.biz and MP$Converter.net.
Double-click the downloaded file to open the installation wizard. Follow the brief set of prompts to complete the installation process.
Launch the installed MP4 video converter and click-and-drag the video you want on your MP5 player into the main viewing area of the program window. Select an output location and click "Converter."
Plug a USB data cable into the USB port on the MP5 player. Connect the other end into any available USB port on your computer. Momentarily, the computer states it has detected a new device.
Click "Start" followed by either "My Computer" or "Computer." Double-click the removable-device icon. This opens a window with all the content currently saved on the device. Open the "Video" window.
Click-and-drag the MP4 video files into the "Video" window. Once the copy has finished, you can close out all the windows, right-click the MP5 icon and select "Eject" from the pull-down menu.
