    video conversion into sony walkman a865

    As far as I know, the sony walkman a865 supports both wmv and mp4 video formats. When I bought it, the walkman came with some sample videos, all in .wmv format...

    ...whatever I do, the Sony won't play any video file I convert (for example) from .flv to .wmv (through VLC, WinFF, or Miro). I tried Blacklight3 though it doesn't seem to launch/work anyway.

    is this a Linux/Sony compatibility issue? If it is, could you please help?

    Could you post one of the sample videos, this would give an idea of the type of file this device is happy with. Not so many details available online about video formats unfortunately. Perhaps a standard 'windows-compatible' file will play, syntax such as the following:

    Code:
    ffmpeg -i <infile> -vcodec wmv2 -b 512k \
            -acodec wmav2 -ab 128k -f asf \
             <outfile.asf>
    might be enough?
    You think that's air you're breathing now?

    thank you Andrew.46

    I'm trying (for instance) to save + run the video
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bZqFqFeA6UI
    on the Sony.

    I'm using UnPlug (Firefox extension) to download it onto my HD. It gets saved as a .webm file. The whole name of the file is Countdown Iran _ Israel War part 1.webm. It's saved in the folder Downloads (Xubuntu).

    Sorry I'm completely lost as to using ffmpeg. I tried the syntax you suggested but it doesn't work...(ffmpeg is installed). Any chance you could give me a practical example with the file above? It'd finally help me make sense of the ffmpeg user guide...

    thank you again!

    breakthrough: it works if I use Miro and I convert the .webm file into a Playstation Portable format...haven't tried converting .flv yet, though I suppose it'd work...
