There is no need to do that.

Download the FREE VideoLan. http://www.videolan.org

It'll play almost any format. If that's all you really want to do (just play the mpg files), then VideoLan will do it for you.

But, to answer your question:
The Samsung Media Studio will convert almost anything that you currently have supported codecs installed for. For example, if the video file you have will only convert video, and not audio...this is likely because you do not have the required codec to play back to audio on your computer...and vice versa.

Question 1. Are you sure you have all the codes to play that mpg in your mp3 player?

Also, your mp3 player would be for (audio sound) and your mpg player would be for (video AND sound).

Question 2. Are you trying to play just the audio from the mpg file into your mp3 player?

Question 3. Are you trying to convert the mpg to play on an iPod or something else, like a cell phone or such?

VideoLan will play .mpg files. That must mean you haven't tried it out yet, which may mean that you'll probably have more questions if you don't try it.

Also, .SVI format is used for speech dictation.

You can seperate the sound from any .MPG file and save it in a format so you can play it in any mp3 player.

I've also done some researching on that extension (.SVI), and it seems like you may have a file format that isn't well into every companies' grasp right now, so converting it to a form other than .SVI may be your best bet for now, if your player will allow it to play.

Also, if it's an mp3 player, it should play your file, but convert it to mp3, and not .svi.

Do you know what i mean by MP3 player? i don't mean a program or application. its a device.

Q1: No it wont play anything but .svi videos (.svi is Samsung's version of .avi)
Q2:No i want to play the video too.
Q3:Yes. im trying to convert it so i can put it on my Samsung T9 MP3 player.It plays MP3s and most other types of audio and it plays .SVI for video and thats the only video it will play.

And btw: i did try VideoLan and it played it but im wanting to play it on the MP3 player.(Samsung T9)

In this technical world, an mp3 player is either a device or software. You never mentioned which of the two you were referring to.

Then you will need to convert all of your .avi .mpg and other formats to .svi to play in that player. And that also mean that you need to have a very versatile piece of software to convert different formats into .svi.

Try the Samsung Media Studio.
Do a search on samsung media studio download and it'll bring some results.

I would image that the Samsung would have it built in the program to convert to .svi format.

You can also download codecs from FREE Codecs http://www.free-codecs.com

You either need codecs or the file may have been originally compiled using non-traditional methods.

Go to the FREE Codecs web site and see if there are codecs for that file type.

Which formats does your program convert from?

ok sorry i made a mistake i got it working this is what my mistake was:

When converting it brings up a window where you choose the model number of your mp3 player and well the model number of my mp3 player is YP-T9 and i accidentally chose YP-T8 and that was the problem so after that i just re converted the files with the model number YP-T9 and everything works Fine....

Much Thanks,
Josh
