There are tons of codecs out for it, although I can't get the apple protected stuff to work, if anyone tries it and can let me know.

If you are a PocketPC owner (like myself) you can get the VLC (Video Lan Client) Player for the PocketPC. It is still experimental, however it works for me.

I'm curious if you could take Media Player Classic and then use the Real Alternative and QuickTime Alternative on the PocketPC. ... Sounds like something I will be trying to do after I post this.

DRM is ... what it is.

But I haven't needed this one but bookmarked for later. The MEDIA box on the PalmOne Desktop that came with my T|X converts my videos just fine. However these are my works and not itunes DRM items.

I did have to forgo using hotsync to get the final file onto the SD card. At least a PalmOne FAQ told me what directory on the SD card to put it.

Here's hoping they fix hotsync (again.)

TCPMP is a pretty cool video player, particually for an open source application, and Codec support is great. I've been using it for a while for taking my Windows Media Center recordings with me on the go. The process of converting the video files to fit on my Palm can be a bit of a hassle, but it works:

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?
