The Archos 404 is primarily a portably video player. It natively supports WMV, protected WMV, and MPEG-4 (AVI) up to 720x480 at 30 frames per second, with optional plug-ins for MPEG-4 AAC/H.2643 (MP4 QuickTime files), MPEG-2, and VOB playback. The device also plays MP3, WAV, and protected WMA files. It includes playlist support, a voice recorder, audio equalizers (weak and rather confusing), a PDF document reader, a built-in speaker, and an excellent photo viewer. If you need any more media options than that, you'd better stay home.
