    Hello people

    I got a Targa MP3/Video player - MP3 H2010 ( if needed Iíll post the link to the machine)
    That only plays Motion JPEG video.
    Iíve ask them for help but the answer was :
    ďThe supported formats are indeed Motion JPEG AVI, Motion JPEG MOV. Mpeg4 is not supported Ö go to w w w . codecs . com.Ē
    Not very elucidative.

    So I searched your forum for help but didnít find anything like this question:

    How to convert video files ( for instance Avi files) to Motion JPEG files, to play them in the player.

    Many thanks in advance.

    Install for example PICVideo MJPEG

    Convert with Virtualdub,
    open the video
    select video->compression and choose the picvideo mjpeg
    select audio->compression and choose mp3 if it is supported
    last file->save avi.

    you may to have resize to lower resolution also, under video->filters in virtualdub.

    Or try SUPER, it may have some mjpeg codec settings also.

    SUPER should since libavcodec does. Also there is ffdshow if you want a free VfW replacement for PICVideo.

    Well here I am again,

    After almost 1 day of work ( the problem is that my daughter and me are in different fiscal places & testing over Inet so there are lots of dl/ul time lost) The basted doesnít recognize the movie test.

    Here the History:
    I got the codec PICVideo MJPEG and Virtualdub,
    Installed both
    And use Vdub to convert ( as you told me) resize and cut the MPG clip to the AVI
    Finally I check with Gspot that it was all right, and it seem ok

    After uploading it to my daughter she told me that the basted targa says that the video type is not compatible

    I have uploaded the files ( Initial mpg and final avi) to rapidshare
    If anyone can give a look to see if Iím missing something I appreciate

    Thanks to every one already involved.

    A sample of a working file to compare would probably be more useful than the source mpg.

    As celtic_druid suggest Iíve upload a small movie (taken by a camera) that works on the Targa machine
    Its image is relay bad but doesnít care because was taken from TV just for example.

    The link is
    Code:
    http://rapidshare.de/files/25438211/PICT0700.AVI.html
    Note1: both files, first posted and this one now are really small.

    Note2 : the converted file (El_crack_de_la_oficina1.avi) only shows the first frame and the player stop responding and have to restart it.

    Thanks for helping

    I have been developping an application working with mencoder to convert videos to many different formats and i have just included an mjpeg output profile, the program is Movie Library ++ http://www.mandeldev.co.uk/EN/downloads.html and it will convert almost any video to an avi using mjpeg codec and mp3 sound with the resolution and bitrate you choose so try it out let me know if it works.

    video/audio quality is low, but for our purposes we just need to find out if your Sony Digital Frame DPF-D820 frame can playback mjpeg. so here goes:

    https://docs.google.com/leaf?id=0ByVrqkwNw_qbMGFmOGU1NjktMWU5Zi00OTIwLWE0NGUtYzQ2OWVkZjk1YTVh&hl=en


    or just click Download (109 MB)


    1. download
    2. copy to sd card or usb drive
    3. video should just playback once u connect the media with the file above to your Sony Digital Frame DPF-D820.

    I am having difficulty converting to the M-JPEG format that my Sony DPF-D830 photo frame can read. I have downloaded the jump video recommended on this thread above and can play it OK. But when I convert an AVI file from my Canon camera using AVIDEMUX the photoframe does not recognise it - it says there are no files on the USB stick.

    It's OK. I discovered that AVIDEMUX doesn't put a file suffix on the file - unlike almost every other program I can think of. Adding .AVI fixed things.
