PMC (Portable Media Center) is Microsoft's platform to play video, audio and photo on the go. Its screen is bigger than iPod, although the resolution is the same at 320x240.
It is bulkier. It uses Windows WMV format for the video and WMA or MP3 for audio. It uses Windows Media Player to sync with the PC. Examples of PMC hardware from third parties include Creative Zen PMC, Samsung Yepp YH-999 and iriver PMC-120.
WMP doesn't accept all the video in your collection, and even if it accepts it, it may need to convert the videos first before syncing, which is time consuming.
River Past Crazi Video for PMC is the easiest way to convert your video and audio for your PMC. It accepts a wide range of video formats - 3GPP, 3GPP2, ASF, AVI, DAT (VCD), DivX, DV, FLIC animation, Animated GIF, MKV, MOV, MP4, MPEG-1, OGM, RAM, WMV and Xvid, and output to PMC compatible WMV video file.
You can also extract audio from those video formats, or convert AC3, AIFF/AIFC, APE, AU, FLAC, MP3, MPA, MPC, MKA, OFR, OGG, RA, SD2, SHN, SND, TTA, WAV and WMA audio to PMC-compatible WMA audio.
Other software will always scale the video to 320x240. We determine the best resolution for the PMC automatically, reserving the best video quality with the smallest file space and complete compatibility.
It even take the aspect ratio into account so your video look just right, whether it is a wide movie trailer, or a vertical video recording from a cell phone.
