Recently brought a Cowon A3 and even though the spec says it plays Vob files my player will not and i get a codec not supported message. I have upgraded the firmware but still no luck.
Anybody else have one of these and have had the same trouble.
Sorry for the ignorance but what is important about vob files? I was looking at buying one of these or maybe the q5 but must admit to knowing nowt about what files or codecs are "must haves", explain.
.mov is a Quicktime multimedia container format and it doesn't need to have mp4 in it. It doesn't need to have any video or sound in it at all actually. Though that would be very rare.mp3 is actually mp1 audio level 3 (ie sound only, no video)
Mpeg2 is different to mpeg1 (not a modified version of it)
mov's are a type of mpeg4 , as are divx and xvid
Phew, I'm not supprised you are a professor looking at that detailed explanation
Can I ask where you got your A3 from and did you look at the Q5 and decide the A3 was a better bet? Any chance of some pictures please just to get an idea of it's size etc.?
