Hi
i have tried a number of bits of software and none have worked without agrovation and mixed results.
just used fairUse wizard 2 and got best results so far but it won't let me set the size of the Divx file i am creating for example 640 x 480. any ideas or can you recommend a better converter, failing this is there a player that plays wmv files (archos doesn't) i can create wmv's alot easier and would consider swapping the archos as this problem is driving me nuts.

please help someone.

The Archos will play WMV's but only at a lower resolution.

I use pocket DVD studio and this has worked quite well to rip and encode DVD's and various video files in either DivX or XVid. I think DivX is the better quality.http://www.pqdvd.com/

If you are looking to convert files from various formats to MPEG4 for the Archos then Lathe from Omniquti http://www.omniquiti.com/store.php works quite well and it's only 8 USD

But do a trawl of the other forums there are lots of recommendations about.

MPEG-46 SP with B-Frames with stereo sound. Near DVD quality up to 720x480 @ 30 f/s (NTSC), 720x576 @ 25 f/s (PAL), AVI file format. WMV9 (including protected files) up to 352x288 @ 30 f/s, and 800 KBit/s4.

The Archos web site has the full specs.

Try PocketDivxEncoder from the same guys that do Lathe. Its free and its ideal for the Archos AV400/500/700. Its quick and gives good results.
