I don't have a LeapTV, but if it is anything like the other systems, the videos have to be made into an installable package so it runs on their system and shows up as an "app"

thanks Deak,
im using the leappad manager, when i click the 'video maker' it says ffmpeg is missing, so i click yes to download it but the menu after that wont let me select 'convert'...so i manually downloaded ffmpeg and extracted it but it still wont work?

Make sure ffpmeg.exe is in the same folder as the application so it can find it. It has been a while since I have used the app to convert a video so I'd have to look at it again.

thanks Deak - got ffmpeg.exe in the same folder and converted and followed your other instructions and transferred the movie onto leaptv console...the old problem is the picture is not full screen?
its about an eight of the screen and it displays it in the middle? any ideas?
thanks

That is most likely because I coded the video maker for the LeapPad 2. I'd have to have the specs / original video from the LeapTV in order to be able to code it to work. Or a device to test on.

Yea he is not on here much and unsure what he used for that player. It might be possible to compile a media player such as http://www.videolan.org/vlc/#download to run on the device.

You could always go to his youtube video and post a comment asking for the source of the media player or send him a PM on here.

yeah i sent him an email earlier already Wink
compile vlc ?..too complicated for me lol...would be so nice to have the media player working...it would complete the set up of games/mame/media player Big Grin...i could add doom/duke nukem but think its a bit too much for a 4 yr old...and the links are now dead...would be nice to have a download centre with all app/emulator files.
