newbie: Camtasia videocast (.exe) would like to view on Sony Walkman (mp4)

Hi EE,

Most of my EE questions are in Microsoft Access.
A colleague created some Microsoft Access tutorials for me.
The vidcasts have an .exe extension, and play fine on my pc.

I would like t watch these vids in the subway on my Sony Walkman.
I dragged and dropped .exes to walkman, but they do not show up
in the menu screen. Maybe Walkman only recognized MP4 extensions.

Do you have any (free) ideas? t, Sandra

As long its an exe file , that means the player itself for this type of video is built inside the exe itself ,,, se if you can find any options when you start this exe on your PC , like save as or export or something similar , and save it in any video format type so it will be easier to deal with later.

Hi RM,
It is a wonderful idea

--- but ---
it does not allow me to do a file/save as

whe exe starts playing, it says AVI in the title bar
In windows explorer it says: .EXE

The sony walkman allows me to copy the file into the video folder
but when i turn the wakman on, do not see it in the walkman

I will close the quest. bec. it was a good idea.
but if you would be willing to dialogue more, i would appreciate it. tx, sandra
