I have a Dell Axim X30 running Windows Mobile 2003 Second Edition. I am tring to use Media Player 10 to view this: http://www.asp.net/learn/videos/view.aspx?tabid=63&id=14

I download the file, unzip it, and put it in my Axim Documents folder. It syncs, but when I try to run it I get "Windows Media", "Cannot play the file. A required codec is not installed or cannot be found."

Any hope?

Thanks,
David

I've run into this also.  The video format of the presentation you're looking at is 'Windows Media Video 9 Screen', and is supposed to be optimized for screen capture videos.  There might be a codec you can download, but I was not able to find one, and couldn't get it to work with TCPMP either.

One thing you can do, if you have a windows xp machine, is convert the .wmv using Windows Movie Maker.  Just drag the .wmv into Movie Maker, dragging it onto the timeline at the bottom of the window.  Then click "Save to My Computer", saving it as one of the pocket pc video formats.

Ok. I had to play with it a bit but ended up with decent results. Here is what I did:

1) Import video - that gave me several movie elements from the single wmv.
2) Edit, Select ALL and drag them down to the storyboard.
3) Save as: View for Pocket PC (full screen).

Thanks for a great solution!
