Default A proper converter for the S160 series

I a little confused for what video converter I should use for my Sony.

Sony says MPEG-4, but what type? could it be H264 since it is technically MPEG-4 part 10? which converter is best for this device?

also would this converter output videos playable on the device?

welcome

Try using H.264, If I am not mistaken you can find text on the package of your sony were it says that it supports H.264

"MPEG 4 or M4V profile at 30 frames per second"

That converter should be just fine. I've heard many are people using iPod converters for sony walkman players.

So yes the videos converted using that software should be "playable"

I know that Videora works with the 610/810 series. Even though its designed for the iPod, you'll find that it works on your Walkman AND a PSP . Better yet, it's a free program that features batch conversion and variety of QVGA profiles (you can also create your own). Try it out to see what works best for you!

it only say mpeg-4. but as I said technically you could consider H.264 to be, but I'm not sure.

would you know of a better batch converter then the one I showed you (not videora)?

I just purchased a 610 for my niece for Christmas and I'm trying to load a few clips on there for her. I downloaded Videora and easily converted a file but it's pretty tiny. Can you tell me the options to create the best file for viewing?
Also, have you used this for a PSP. If so, please share your recommended settings for it. My son has one and I've struggled to get video on there.
Thanks!

Default SUPER is a great converter for this

I see people asking what a good converter is so I figured I'd share what I use.

DL, install, run. Set the output option to PSP (that has all the correct settings for both of these players) and drag your videos in. The default output folder is a bit weird, I believe (off the top of my head) that it is:
C:\Program Files\eRightSoft\SUPER\OutPut
or something similar.

I've converted 3 movies with SUPER and so far they've all worked fine.
