Tips On How to Add Video To Zune


Visitors: 5,289

In order to know how to add video to Zune, you've got to know the video format that is required by the device. The device only plays video in 3 formats namely Windows Media Video (. wmv), MPEG4 video (m4v, . mp4, or . mov) and H.264 video (. m4v, . mp4, or . mov). Uploading video files to the device involves 2 steps. The first is to convert the video files be it in AVI, MPEG2, Divx, VCD or DVD format to one of the 3 Zune compatible formats mentioned. The second step is to transfer the converted video to the device. Sounds simple? Well let's go into more details on how to add video to Zune.

Knowing how to add video to Zune starts with finding the right conversion software. iSkySoft Video Converter and Cucusoft Zune software are some examples. These are sharewares that you can download and try out. However, the software will add watermarks on the converted media or limit the conversion to 5 or 10 minutes unless you purchase the full version.

Microsoft also provides its own Zune software and it's free to use but unfortunately it does not include video conversion feature. It is recommended to try out the sharewares to find out which one gives you the best user experience in terms of user friendliness.

More information on Cucusoft Zune program can be found including step-by-step instructions on how to add video to zune and do the conversion at, -convert-video-dvd-to-zune-videos-zune-movies, -zune-music.html.

Assuming that the conversion is done, the next thing is to do the transfer of the converted video from you PC or laptop to Zune. You have 2 options as to how to add video to Zune. One of them is a bit more technical but will be of interest to techies. The first is to use the Zune program provided by Microsoft to do the transfer. You can easily do this by starting the Zune program, dragging the video file to Zune library and do a sync. The method is the easiest and requires no technical know how. You may download Microsoft Zune software from

The other method which I personally prefer is to convert the Zune device into an external hard disk so that video files can be copied and pasted onto the device directly. Find out how to do this at Disclaimer: do this at your own risk.
