The SMC is NOT required to convert videos for the Fuze+. Any video converter of your choice can be used. Here are the video file requirements for Fuze+
Video format for Fuze+

*Untested* but from a Sansa Support e-mail (101016-000591),
They gave these parameters for divx5 codec.

Here is the settings that I use using Any Video Converter. Once it is done converting, I just drag and drop it either to the Internal or External storage. Works great, no choppy playback and audio and video are completely synchronized.

Your support request and the information supplied is referring to a Sansa E250. The video specs in the original post are the video requirements for the Sansa Fuze+

Can any video be converted this way? For example, a DVD video? I am having trouble getting video on the Sansa Fuze+ I got my son for Christmas. I want to be able to load some video before he gets his gift.

dvd will need to be ripped and the drm cracked. the smc does not do this but there are programs available that do. once the dvd is ripped into a compatible format it can be converted for the fuze+

For linux users. This command convert all videos in the folder (whatever they are) to a readable format:
find . ./* -print0 | xargs -0 -I files ffmpeg -i files -aspect 16:9 -acodec libmp3lame -ar 44100 -ab 128k -ac 2 -vcodec mpeg4 -vtag DX50 -r 20 -b 512k -s 224x176 files.avi
(need ffmpeg video and codecs ..)
or for a single files:
ffmpeg -i inputfile -aspect 16:9 -acodec libmp3lame -ar 44100 -ab 128k -ac 2 -vcodec mpeg4 -vtag DX50 -r 20 -b 512k -s 224x176 outputfile.avi

Any idea what the maximum video bitrate the Fuze+ can handle is? I'm using WinFF as an ffmpeg frontend in Windows, and would want to know so that I can get decent video quality on this.
ffmpeg -i inputfile -aspect 16:9 -acodec libmp3lame -ar 44100 -ab 128k -ac 2 -vcodec h264 -r 30 -b 976k -s 320x240 outputfile.avi
is probably better, you'll need to adjust aspect for your actual output, and maybe pad upper and lower.

Will the fuze+ play TV shows from itunes? I can't get that to work at all. I am getting really frustrated because I got this player for my son to play tv shows and videos and I can't make it work. Can you help me?
