I just updated my Gome Flytouch last night to 1.9_88. I tried transferring a .mkv, .avi, and .mp4 video but none of them seems to play, I just hear the audio but no video. Is there something wrong? Do I have to revert to the old firmware? Thanks

I'm having this problem as well. Tried multiple converters but to no avail.Tried converting my vids to 400x240, mp4avc-h264, 300k bitrate etc. But still get that "1 frame per 3secs" video problem. Audio is fine.Anyone successfully converted for ePad?

I've also tried using both the Rock Player and YXFlash, both of which are supposed to play multiple file types but neither work (possibly they need 2.1 or higher?).

One main reason I bought the ePad is because of movies and I'm kinda discouraged that it only plays the Test movie file provided. Hope somebody will drop the right settings for converting and the best software for doing it. I have my Motorola Milestone 2.1 and no problem with Rock Player playing Avi files. I wonder why it wont play on the ePad..

Dude, Motorola use Cortex 550Mhz CPU opposite your old ARM 350Mhz. Cortex support video codecs by hardware and how you compare? And how much cost your Milestone and this China PAD - you think why?

Yup, this flytouch is like 4-5 times cheaper than my Milestone. What you pay is what you get, but I have little china mp4 players that's way too cheaper than this epad and I'm sure the hardware is slow but it plays divx with no problems.

This is starting to suck, so ePad is like bad for movies. In case I have a successful conversion, will the video be running smooth with no lags?

It converts files ok (using the Android G1 as type) but they won't play on my tablet.The only thing that plays is the Discovery Channel mp4 test clip that is pre-installed.

Download free video converter and use the setting android medium quality, save it as mp4 and it will work. That is what i do on my flytouch and it always worked. Just be sure to use 420 as the maximum width.

Only iPod and iPhone, Web Flash and Youtube. Anyway, tried it but still doesn't play. Can only play audio with jerky 5-sec/frame video.Guess I'll have to continue to search for an answer

I use winff or if you are on linux ffmpeg. It has an android setting when you download that worked fine for me. I did eek out a bit better performance by playing with a custom setting. When I go home I will post the setting string.

Here is the setting string I promised. Simply copy this into a new setting in WinFF and it helps keep the audio in sync. The video quality is a little worse but the audio stays in sync so its a toss.-s 480x320 -vcodec mpeg4 -b 480k -acodec libfaac -ac 1 -ar 16000 -r 13 -ab 32000 -aspect 3:2
