Little chitchat about video format and player


Wow, video player technology nowadays is so awesome. Let's flashback in the past, when beta CD is so popular. Mostly people said that it's great technology. But some years after it, people find beta is just an old technology after their know about VCD. VCD gold era is ended until DVD format comes up. DVD format is played in the player called DVD player, which also avaialble to play VCD.

So, people have no reason to buy VCD player. On 2004-2005 people heard an info about Blu-Ray and HDDVD. Oh no, DVD is already good, but there is more good one? Even Bluray and HDDVD not beat the popularity of DVD yet (at least in my country), but day by day i'm sure it will. That's a case on conventional video player. How about mobile video player? The competition is not too tight here, but we're know the need for a mobile video player which able to play many format is a must. Let's say all of format video : mp4, 3gp, aac, wav, wmv, avi, mpg, mpeg, rm, mov. Is there any 1 mobile player which support all format? It's not excist yet. But i believe it will. Now, popular mobile video player mostly used is video player from handphone and mp4 player. I'm also use my Nokia6120Classic to play video and mp4 player to play mp4. I hope in the future, there is one compact mobile video player that can play all format.

Well, the main topic i wanna tell you from this content is, the video player technology moved so fast and we don't know what will happen on "video world" on 3-4 years or even 1 years next. Maybe there will be 4 dimension video? We never know about it.
