    And there are no such plugins at this point.

    How about AVI? Seems like it should play those, especially because it mentions that MP3 is used not only for audio files but for the audiocomponent of AVI files. But when I tried an AVI file it said CODEC not available. Is there a separate AVI codec?

    Wrong...AAC and FFmpeg plugins will alow you to play them after you install them on Palm desktop and do a sync...I play all my videos from my laptop.

    i blieve the AAC plugin comes with the TCPMP zip, i'm not sure about the FFmpeg plugin but highly interested if it will allow me to "freely" play WMV files, if i am not mistaken about Kstewart's reference to "all" videos.
    !! uNo.....DoS.....tReO!!

    Yes the aac comes with TCPMP, but you will have to get FFmpeg.
    Here is a link to FFmpeg.http://corecodec.org/frs/?group_id=53&release_id=225

    Me too. It doesn't even see the .wmv files.

    Not entirely true. You can play some types not all without sound.


    This was from the website.

    For .wmv, it's just best for now to steer away from it on the Palm side. The ffmpeg plug-in supports some versions of the video format, but you won't be able to get .wma sound from TCPMP unless (or until) CoreCodec negotiates a license for it and then codes a plug-in. (For lack of a better description, the PPC version currently "piggybacks" on the bundled windows device functionality to allow for limited .wmv support on that side.)

    As for .asf, TCPMP supports it, but playback is actually kind of hit and miss depending on the underlying formats in the container. The Palm auto-conversion process using HotSync is probably the worst (so you might look at some of the posts about hotsyncing issues, if that's how they're getting installed). Because you're having an issue with the audio only, we'd need to see what the format is.

    Ultimately, for certain formats, transcoding is usually the answer. I'm using xvid/mp3 in an .avi container, but with 1.0, I'm certainly going to AVC. Check the encoding forum here for some good information.

    Get Kinoma Producer. The Windows (but not Mac) version will convert .WMV files to .MP4 files in formats optimized for the Treo. There are potentially freeware routes to doing the same thing, but for $30 having it all in one easy application is worth it IMHO.
