I recently bought a Fuze+ and became frustrated after failing to get my videos into an acceptable format for the player. I finally figured out the easiest way/format to get them to play properly:
Encode them in .wmv
Everything I’d seen before was getting at h.264, but after multiple attempts at this, it never worked for me. I dont like using the SMC because it bloats the files greatly and has sync issues.
If you use Any Video Converter (it’s free), upload your file and select that you want to convert to “Customized .wmv Movie.”
- video codec should be “WMV V9”
- frame size = 320x240
- video bitrate=768
The audio settings should already be good to go.
So, if you’re having problems putting video onto the player, use this method. I’ve had success using the aforementioned settings.
