How do portable mp3/video players work?

Hep ol' granpa out here..... I have my old mp3 player and have filled it up. Rather than erase and replace, I figured it'd be easy enough to get a new player that also does video. Especially since they are now selling in the neighborhood of $30.

How does the video portion work? Can I put stuff on there from hulu.com or the other video sites? I'd much rather store away South Park eps than music videos.

Stay tuned for future meeting about kids skateboarding on the sidewalks and the DMV taking away our licenses.

I'm not a pro by any means, but I believe as long as the video is in a format your player plays, you're good to go. If you have something in an alternate format it can usually be converted to a friendly format with the software that comes with the player.

on a related note, can you transfer directly from one player to another, or do you have to load it onto a PC and then reload to the new player?

98% of the time, it's the latter (PC is the hub, handheld players are the musical spaceships). But, I'm not sure how the Zune Media Player works exactly, but it does tout some sort of wireless "friends" feature, where if another person within, say 30 yards of you also has a Zune, and you both realize this and say to each other, "No way, dude! We both have Zunes!", one or the other participant can transfer a song, playlist, artist, whatever to your media player for you to listen to for a week and/or 3 "full listening times", whichever may come first. After that, the song information is stored, but it may prompt you to buy the album, artist from the Zune Store thereafter.

I could be making this up nebulously, tho.

Today I'm going to try to copy a music CD I already own to my PC and then transfer it to my iTouch! I'm pretty sure that will work and then I'll transfer all my CD's to PC.

Next project is to figure out how to transfer a vinyl LP to my iTouch since my search this morning indicated that some of what I want is no longer commercially available in any format other than high priced collectors copies.... e.g. Cantate Domino (Proprius CDP 7762).
