Moving on. -> What you need to know is that your OTHER player must give you software and instructions on how to prepare content to play on that player. If they don't then you will be upset over having to learn that there is no standard for conversion to whatever your player is.
I know some have an aversion to the iPod but given the prices and the time you'll lose waiting for the files to convert or days (weeks?) lost trying to find support why isn't the iPod an answer?
I hope this doesn't sound too dumb, but I am new to the video aspect of MP3 players. I have previously used one for audio books and some music, and now I'm ready to step up a bit. I notice that one of my favorite tV shows Dan Rather HDNET advertises at the end of each show that you can get the show from I Tunes ($1.99 ea)
I don't mind paying the $1.99 for these missed shows or ones I'd like to download to travel with, but I don't have an I Pod, and wanted to buy a Cowon D2, for some of it's audible book features and most important long battery life. So my question is:
Is there no other source for obtaining these TV shows. I like documentories, news,PBS, HDTV, Link TV type stuff (also BBC) without having to buy an Apple.
I just went on PBS and they have download streaming of their shows of NOW (a weekly news documentory), if you buy a $699 version of Adobe. Please educate me as to what is or isn't available for video on MP3's. I am not so interested in buying DVD's and then converting them over. I would like to be able to directly download from my computer onto the Cowon. Am I going to have to buy both a Cowon for my books and music, and an ITouch for the video? I know the ITouch will do the music and audible books too, but the battery life of them is very short. Some people are saying that they get less than an hour of video (supposed to get 5 to 6 hours) I have read this by many. This has little appeal to me.
