This page describes how to make your Video Files playable on an Play-Yan Micro. Other "how to" pages

A Play-Yan Micro is a Nintendo peripheral for Nintendo portable game devices. See Nintendo's official page (Japanese) for more info.

(The rest of the page follow the format/tone set by the Ipod howto article.)

To play on this device, the file you copy to it needs to be of the correct format. This format is summarised below:

Video Codec mp4v
Audio Codec mp4a (MP4 audio), aac (AAC)
Container mp4 (MPEG4/MOV)
Size 240x174

To make the video the correct size, you can edit the preferences, or run vlc from a command prompt. For Windows, make a batch file as shown:

set INPUT=V:\media\sample.avi
set OUTPUT=V:\transcode output\sample.mp4
set VLC=F:\app\VideoLAN\VLC\vlc.exe
%VLC% "%INPUT%" :sout=#transcode{vcodec=mp4v,vb=1024,scale=1,acodec=mp4a,audio-sync}:std{access=file,mux=mp4,url="%OUTPUT%"} --sout-transcode-width=240 --sout-transcode-height=176 --aspect-ratio=16:9

Fill in the input and output filenames. (FIXME: Aspect Ratio does not seem to be working)[Please check this]

Note: Some videos can be transcoded, some can't. This info is still a work in progress.
