You just need

You just need to convert it to a format that is supported by your phone. And whether or not your phone is upgradeable depends on the phone maker. If it's an older phone, I wouldn't bet on it. If it's less than a year old (from the time the phone launched, not when you got it) then possibly. A phone that's less than 6 months old is a high probability.

But there's nothing special about it, you just need to figure out what video and audio formats are supported by the media player on your phone.

I understand what your saying how do you know what (1)format is being played on the pc (2) The formats the phone supports windows mobile media player is what it uses (3) what type of s/w for the phone would I get and where.

Thank you for all your help

This sounds great, there is no charge for this or do they want a donation. I noticed it only works for pc formats is there s/w so I can watch webcasts and streaming video's on my mobile window's 6.1 phone that you might know of

But I wanted to be clear here. There is no fee, no watermarks and if there are, you didn't get SUPER.

I looked again and the formats include so many I can see where you missed the ones for Windows Mobile!

In reply to: Sorry.

Thanks, again that was very helpful, so I am clear I know this will work on my pc. My other problem is watching webcasts and streaming video on my mobile phone. One of the posters indicated it depends on the type of player that is currently on my phone if it will play certain formats that the website on my phone is showing. I hope this is not to confusing 8soft super platform appears to work on Win pc's not mobile applications Unless Iam missing something, which is possible.

I really do Appreciate your help

"How can I record web casts streaming video like fox news broadcasts for my pc I hve vista"

Now I read something that may be you asking about Windows Mobile. Now that I know a little about as I am deep into porting my Palm Applications to Windows Mobile. But your top question should have been answered by now.

About play on WinMo 6.x
by R. Proffitt Forum moderator / August 28, 2009 7:13 AM PDT

Using the tools mentioned so far (Cam-this and SUPER-that) I can effectively get content on my PC then put that on a SD CARD for play on my WinMo machines or phones.

Given the zillion (well thousand) varieties of WinMo I didn't try to find a player for that WinMo yet. I just use SUPER to encode it to play on the phone.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
