Playing videos/movies (Internal memory models only)

For best results, the recommended filetype for playing videos on the frame is the .avi video filetype with the XVID video codec and the MP3 audio codec. The recommended dimensions are 720x576(4:3) or 640x360(16:9). The recommended framerate is 24fps or less.

For converting videos to .avi, you will need to use a converter software.
