    Converting videos for Sansa e200


    I just got a Sansa e200 mp3/video player....only problem is I don't know how to convert videos so that I can play them on it. All I know is that they need to be in Quicktime, but downloading a quicktime video and putting it on there doesn't work, it just says to convert it using the software for Windows that it came with.

    ....anyone have any idea how I can do this? Or atleast how to find out what codes to use for mencoder.

    Much appreciated!

    Me three.

    All I know is I've been able to upload .wmv files to mine, it has a hard time coping with anything else it seems. But my wmv's were small 1 minute videos, so Quicktime didn't have to split it.

    An easy solution may be copying a video from a Windows Computer, take a look at the parameters used and emulate them with mencoder of ffmpeg. If you do this, I can help you with ffmpeg command line options
