How to Put Movies on a Pandigital Photo Frame
By Quinten Plummer
Although Pandigital photo frames are geared toward pictures and slide shows, most of the digital photo frames Pandigital offers support audio and video files as well as images. Pandigital's photo frames use the space-efficient Motion JPEG (M-JPEG) format to package movies for playback. And putting your movies onto a Pandigital photo frame is fairly straightforward--it's just as easy as adding photos to your frame.
Convert your movie files into Motion JPEG (M-JPEG) format using a video converter, such as MJ Pegger 2 or Oxelon Media Converter (see Resources). Import your video into the video converter, set the output as "Motion JPEG (M-JPEG)" and then click on the "Convert" option.
Insert a memory card--one supported by your Pandigital model--into your computer's memory card reader. Select the "Open Folder to View Files" option from the AutoPlay menu that appears.
Drag and drop the converted M-JPEG files into the memory card's folder. Remove the card from the computer after the files have all been transferred to the memory card. Insert the memory card into your Pandigital photo frame's memory card slot.
Use either your remote control or the buttons on the frame itself to navigate to the "Video" menu option. The path is Exit > Setup > Video for 7-, 8-, and 10-inch models and Setup > Video for 15-inch frames.
Use the arrows key to select a video and press "Enter" to play it.
