Using Other Conversion Software
While the included software converts numerous formats to the format
required by the player, there may be some formats that it cannot convert.
In many cases, however, you can find other free software on the Internet
that can do the job. Regardless of what convertor software you use, make
sure that you convert videos to AMV format, at a resolution of 128x128.
See the player's complete format information under "Technical
Specifications" on pg. 34.

Converting Video in OS X & Linux
While the player doesn't come with conversion software for either OS X or
Linux, there may be free, open-source programs on the internet that can
do the necessary transcoding.
