Watch Movies On The Go With Your Video Ipod Movie Player

Aug 18, 2007
With Apple computers most recent evolution of their venerable iPod, music, movies, as well as TV programs are now all portable enough to take with you whenever you want and can be listened to through your iPod portable speaker or through headphones.

However, the enthusiasm may be lessened somewhat due to issues such as ergonomics, compatibility, and movie selection. Despite the fact that you have the ability to watch downloadable movies with your iPod, it may become somewhat uncomfortable for long periods of time.

Considering that one criticism (however minor) typical to most reviews is it can sometimes be very uncomfortable to have to hold the video iPod in an upright position while viewing a TV program. Most television dramas are roughly 1 hour long, however how many people really wish to spend two hours or more viewing movies on your iPod? Likely not many.

However, it is most certainly ideal in short periods of time, and you have the option to break up these sessions into a 30 minute segments to solve any discomfort issues while viewing movies on your iPod. It's that or you will need to switch hands of whole lot.

Portability Versus Compatibility

An additional consideration that needs to be taken into account is the fact that depending on the format of the file, your movies in your iPod may not be compatible. The safest road to take to solve any compatibility issues is to downloading movies through iTunes.

Additionally, there may be several other issues to take into consideration when you start to download movies to use on your iPod. Including iTunes, there are at least a couple of movie download sites. However, the service that has been initially offered at these sites have been rather average at best.

Individuals have had complaints when it comes to long download times, even though they may have high-speed internet connections. Another similar issue with movies that are downloaded is the image quality can be poor at times.

Numerous customers who frequent these sites have also had complaints about less than acceptable pictures that are below DVD quality, and various movies also display artifacts on the screen (or monitor).

The majority of downloadable movies are just as expensive as their DVD counterparts yet do not have many of the extras that the majority of individuals have come to expect. The odds are that if you have a movie that is downloaded, you will not receive any bonuses such as photo galleries, commentaries etc..

As challenging as these different issues may be, the technology is emerging. If you can get by the fact that there is still some issues with movies that are downloaded, your iPod can be your most useful mobile device on a plane or a crowded bus.

Even the possibility of having your hands cramp and having a less-than-perfect picture, at the moment there is no greater convenience of having the ability to carry all your movies along with you regardless of where your destination may be.
