A small, easy to follow, guide on how you can watch your AVI, MKV, ISO (and other) video files on the VTech InnoTab, fast, easy and hassle free.
Why this guide?
Video files come in lots of different formats and file-types. Depending on where you get your video files from or what you use to create your own video files, you might have videos in AVI, MKV, MPEG, MP4, WMV or ISO format, all with different video codecs, such as DIVX, XVID, AVC, H264 and audio codecs such as MP3, AC3, AAC.
Unfortunately, the VTech InnoTab can only play video created using specific settings and formats, so chances are that your video files will not play, or not play properly
This guide explains how you can get all these different video file types and formats to play on the VTech InnoTab, without having to try different video players or settings.
* Of course your VTech InnoTab.
* A computer running Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 8
Video Catalyst installs just like most programs you can download/purchase from the internet.
After downloading, just install it like any other application. If you have questions, or are not sure how to install software on your computer, you can visit this link which explains the installation in detail:
After the installation is complete, start Video Catalyst on your computer using the shortcut on your desktop:
and you will be presented with the application view:
Using the drop-down boxes on the left, select VTech InnoTab.
With Video Catalyst open, and your VTech InnoTab profile selected, drag your video file (or files) over on top of Video Catalyst.
You can drag files and folders, and Video Catalyst will sort out what it likes. After that, tap Go to start the conversion, and Video Catalyst will convert all your videos, one at a time.
Now sit back and relax for a while.
Depending on how fast/new your computer is, this can take a while. On most computers, it takes about half the time that it takes to actually watch the movie, so a 2 hour movie in about an hour, however, if you have a fast quad core computer, it is possible to convert a 2 hour movie in about 10 minutes.
After the conversion is complete, Video Catalyst will open the folder where it stored your movie files.
Transfer video to VTech InnoTab:
All that is left is to transfer the files over.
For full details on how copy your movies over, have a look here:
Video Catalyst can not convert so-called “Digital Copy” movies, or movie and TV episodes purchased through iTunes or similar online video services such as Amazon UnBox and UltraViolet. These video files are DRM-protected, which prevents software such as Video Catalyst from converting them.
Video files that do not include DRM such as AVI, DIVX, ISO, MKV, MPEG etc can be converted normally with Video Catalyst.
