Video?
By: pbryon @ 11:29 PM

This may be a stupid question, but here goes anyway....

I see it mentioned often with the arrival of the Zire 71, and always with all the current and future Clies, and even with our Treos--the ability to view video on our handhelds.

My question is simple--where do I get video? I don't have a camcorder, and don't have one in my future plans. Can I get full-length movies somewhere? Movie trailers? TV shows? Other video? Is there a site somewhere that has all this, and I'm missing it?

Thanks for any help you can provide....pbryon

Do files get embarrassed when they get unzipped?

If you have one of the newer mondo-clies (the ones with the spinning screen) you can shoot movies directly into the device, no?

I haven't looked into this for over a year, but if I remember right, there's TealMovie and FireViewer. Sony also had some trailers on their site. But don't bother. You're not missing much. 8 bit color. 5fps. Pizo tweeter sound. I showed it off to a friend of mine, who then showed me the LOTR trailer on his PocketPC. I was so embarassed! The DragonBall needs another... ball? Wait for OS5.

Nope I'm afraid the memory stick is too slow for video recording...
Recording to Ram will not give you enough space..

Playing from MS works though :/

Actually, yes you can with the NX and NZ models:

It can also capture small sized movies (160x112) with audio

The camera is not just limited to still pictures, you can also record movie clips with audio. A movie's length is only limited by how much available space you have on your memory stick. However, the movie recorder will only capture clips in the small and grainy 160x112 resolution; so don't throw away your camcorder just yet.
