How to Put Videos on an Mp5 Player

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.
