    Correct me if i'm wrong... But mp3 stands for MPEG layer three audio?

    Well, what i do know for sure is mp3 is audio, mp4 is Video.

    Enoch was right.

    the iPod video is an MP4 player. MP4 is just like an MP3 but it plays video's also. most MP4 players just say they play video because the general public doesnt know what an MP4 is

    isn't Mp4 also audio? Cause Mp3 stands for MPEG-3 while Mp4 stands for MPEG-4. I also heard that Mp4 supports video, images, subtitles, etc. There both different in size and quality of music. Also correct me if I'm wrong.

    thats what i thought, but what if the mp3 player says "mp4" on it? does that mean you cant transfer your mp3s on an mp4 player? its all so greek to me.

    whats even weirder is that it doesnt have video playback on that mp3 player?

    so confusing.....

It was invented by a team of European engineers of Philips, CCETT (Centre commun d'études de télévision et télécommunications), IRT and Fraunhofer Society, who worked in the framework of the EUREKA 147 DAB digital radio research program, and it became an ISO/IEC standard in 1991.
    MP4
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mp4
    MPEG-4 Part 14, formally ISO/IEC 14496-14:2003, is a multimedia container format standard specified as a part of MPEG-4. It is most commonly used to store digital audio and digital video streams, especially those defined by MPEG, but can also be used to store other data such as subtitles and still images. Like most modern container formats, MPEG-4 Part 14 allows streaming over the Internet. The official filename extension for MPEG-4 Part 14 files is .mp4, thus the container format is often referred to simply as MP4. Devices that play .mp4 files are referred to as MP4 players.

    then theres THIS one that i was reffering to, this is the "nano type" one

    http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.2045
