    Probably irrelevant in these forums but I just had a little browse at Amazon's website and they are selling a DVD player 'made' by ...... YAMADA ........ !
    I feel a law suit coming on!

    Suppose you're joking, but just in case you're not, most of these Japanese/Chinese manufacturer brand names are actually surnames.

    For the money this DVD player is supposed to be pretty nifty.

    I looked at the specs and one of them plays MPEG4!
    Does anybody know what that means?

    I thought MPEG4 was superior to MPEG 2 ?

    Mpeg 4 has superior compression i.e. it makes the size of the file smaller but at a cost of more onscreen artifacts and blocking.

    However a good mpeg 4 compressed movie can be near dvd quality and fit on a single cdr. Ideal for downloading with broadband.
