I have thousands of photos but can't see ALL of them on my frame
About this issue:
All Digital Photo Frames have Dynamic RAM Chips & Chipsets incorporated into them that determine how many photos can be processed by the frame when an SD Card or USB Flash Drive is inserted.
The amount of photos you can view on a Digital Photo Frame is not limitless.
X07E, X07F, X08C and X08D Frames:
Capable of supporting approximately 1720 photos. (Note below alternative method for more than 1720 photos with X08C & X08D Frames.)
If you have more than 1720 photo files on your Memory Device, they will not play as photos on the frame.
X12C, X15C, X18B Frames:
Capable of supporting approximately 10,000 photos.
If you have more than 10,000 photo files on your Memory Device, they will not play on the frame.
Store 12,000 or more photos on the X08D Frame by simply making a video of the slide photos and play the videos on your frame. Testing has shown that 12,000 photos in 12 videos, with 1,000 photos per video, works very well. Admittedly, you lose many of the photo control features, as it is a video, but many can be set up in this alternative method too. Consider on the same USB you can have your newest 1720 photos in photo mode and 12,000 or more photos in the Video files.
How to do it (Video approach):
MS Movie Maker
Drag and drop 1000 photos into MS Movie Maker,
Click Edit and set your duration.
3 secs will produce a ~325MB file
Note: If you set duration higher than 5 secs then reduce the files to 500 and for 10 secs reduce the number of files to 250.
You may add additional transitions as you prefer with many of the optional methods provided in MS Movie Maker.
Save the file with a name like 000001 to 10000.mp4 so it will be sequential on the USB but if you want to change the order you can simply rename the files.
These are the specific MP4 Video Settings for your custom save settings.
If you’d like to add Audio, you can add music files to your video but reduce the number of photos about 25% to allow for resources on your computer.
Any Video Converter
Please follow our existing routine, below, to convert the MP4 into an efficient AVI file for the frame. This will allow for many files to fit on the USB and play smoothly. You can place the AVI on a USB or SD Card and then the video will play upon turning on the frame.
When you turn the frame on it will start with the first video. Or, press Return and you will see the following list similar to yours. On the frame the video files will be selectable in an easy list on the Videos or Folder Feature of the frame. Click OK and that video’s thousand photos will show.
While in a video using the arrow right on the remote it will advance one video so if the frame comes out of sleep mode you can easily advance it several thousand photos ahead with relative ease.
Converting Video files to play on NIX Digital Photo Frames
About this aspect:
Is your video not playing on your NIX Digital Photo Frame? Don’t' worry, we can recommend a video conversion program.
Our choice program is 'Any Video Converter'. This can convert your video files to a Standard AVI file that will play on NIX Frames.
How to do it:
Download the program onto your computer first.
NOTE: During the setup, when you arrive at the setting 'Tuneup Utilities' (see below), or 'Nitro Reader, make sure you un-tick the box, otherwise your computer will download un-necessary extra features that are not relevant to this exercise. These are just marketing ploys that you probably don't need.
Open the newly-installed program, which should be on your Desktop.
Load your video into the program by clicking on the “Add File” Icon, or simply drag right into the window of the program.
Once loaded, you will see the video file appear in the main window. There is a tick-box next to the thumbnail preview. Tick this.
At the top right of your screen there is “Preset Output”. Click on this and a Window will appear that says 'Please choose your output device’. Use the Right arrow to scroll through the selections until you find 'Common Video Formats'. Select this, and click confirm:
Now, to the right of the 'Preset Output' icon, you will see a movie reel icon saying 'Common Video'. Click on it, and a drop-down menu will appear. Look for 'Customized AVI Movie' and select it:
You will need to adjust a couple of the 'Basic Options'. Look over at the lower right side of the screen. Below are the settings you need to change:
Video Size: 720 x 576
(THESE ARE THE ONLY SETTINGS YOU CAN USE FOR THE FRAME)
***All the other settings should be preset, changing them will affect the playback of your video and possibly not play***
Once conversion is complete, close the Pop up box that asks you to purchase. Do not convert again. Now, on the left side you will see a “Files sorted by status" heading, under that will be a converted heading. Click on that and your converted video will be in there.
