    iPod, I have one and it is brilliant for viewing movies etc. Zune is just a Microsoft product that is trying to rival iPod, but it's not working.
    iPod looks,works and plays media brilliantly. Besides, iPod will always be the market leader for MP3 players.
    Do the decent thing, get an iPod.

    thanks for the reply lee.jarratt,

    what program do you use to convert shows and put them onto the iPod? I'd like try out the program and see the output file.

    What I do is rip a movie or TV show from a DVD by using DVD dycryptor (SP?) and then convert the file to MP4 using Videora for iPod.

    Get an iPod. Neither of them are very good for watching videos though. They have shitty/small screens and the batteries only last long enough to watch one movie.

    I have an Ipod. Honestly, I hate the thing, but its my best choice for storing my 10 000 tracks of music (and counting) on. I've noticed that the time for watching videos on my ipod isn't very long, which is a bit of a pain.
    I don't know what the battery life is for the Zune, but it could well be better than the Ipod, I don't know!

    Personally, I'd choose a Zune. I think they look a lot nicer than the ipods..

    Enoch was right.

    Looks aren't everything. I have a few friends that have Zunes but they hate them. I haven't ever owned one but I have played around with my friends and I prefer my iPod, though it might be better once you get used to it. I don't know how I could live with out a scroll wheel. Also 10,000 is a shitload of songs. All my friends think I'm crazy for having 5,000.

    Weeell, I do like my music >.<
    And looks aren't 'everything', but they count for alot( at least to me)
    I like to have something that looks half decent.
    And for some reason, my ipod reminds me of a Biscuit..Seriously, don't even ASK..

    But, All in all, I think the Zunes are alot more stylish.

    Enoch was right.

    DR.MARIO:


    Your battery life depends on many things when viewing video.

    Certain compression codecs will drain your battery faster. The more something is compressed, the harder the processor has to work to decompress it for viewing. So, sacrifice some image quality (which frankly, on a 640x480 screen you may not even notice) and some space, and your battery will last longer.


    For example regular Mpeg-4 versus H.246 compression. H.246 will give you a MUCH better quality for the size/bitrate. But Mpeg-4 will save you some major battery life.
