Tapeworm’s pretty expert on this stuff, giving advice that should generally be heeded.
Is there a certain kind of video you plan to use most often? There are all kinds of different video formats: flv, wmv, mov, avi, vob and on and on.
I suggest you borrow your friend’s View again and try to transfer your particular kind of video on to it. If it works, happiness all around. If it doesn’t, well, then look around the View board to see how other people have dealt with that video format and see if you can get good results.
I never use my Fuze for video, so I can’t advise you on it or other video players. But I do see persistent complaints here on the Fuze board that sound and image get out of sync, that transferring is a pain, etc.
It seems like you’re looking for an affirmative answer when people are trying to tell you honestly that there are problems. You may have to spend more than $90, or be content with partial satisfaction.
