I’m assuming the next generation of MP3 players will have 60GB+ of hard disk space as well as an actual LCD screen capable of playing movies. IPod recently came out with one and I’m guessing this kind of MP3 player will be more and more common.
So what kind of compression technology do you use if you want to put DVDs onto your MP3 player? Do you use MP4 or something else? What kind of compression rates do you get with various video compression methods if you start with a 4.7 or 9.4GB DVD? Would an MP4 file be under 1GB if it starts out as a 9 GB DVD?
