    SO -

    I write out of desperation. I have an odd request - I need video to play in a Shit digital picture frame made by Jessop's (English brand) - This is the 4th one of these that Ive bought, all different makes and models, all say that they support video, whether it be MP4, MPEG 1/2, or my latest issue AVI - For the first time I've gotten this machine to play an AVI, but not the one I want it to play. I took a sample from a download of a film I had to run it against the AVI I Need to play to see if one plays. The one I dont want works, the one I do doesnt.

    Im guessing this is because I've converted it. I've done this with a number of different converters, but as I understand I may need to re-encode the file. Something which I know f%$k all about. I'm familiar with code, but never tackled video. I've used Imediahud to get the specs, which are obviously different in a number of ways -

    I'd be extremely grateful if someone could get it working for me.

    Thanks very much in advance.

    i use a program called gspot to get the media info.I use a program called avidemux for changing file formats on videos.both programs are free.

    i havnt used the digital photo frames.I have messed around with files to get them to work on my dvd player through usb ports and on my tv.

    I would agree that your best bet is to find out exactly what spec of video your photo frame is capable of displaying and then go from there.

    Another converter is SUPER, and you can set very specific properties for the output file so it may suit your needs well.

    When checking specs of this frame thing be sure to see what the max bitrate it can play,i'd go as far as comparing the two files you mention to see what differences there are,you could use gspot tho mediainfo would be easier to read & compare
