Rockbox for the win again! It can play just about anything even video as
long as it's scaled correctly.

I bought my daughter a Sansa player a few years ago and we had a major gripe
with it. It was a 2GB player with an Micro-SD expansion slot. She wanted
to take a movie for a school trip, and we had captured a few good titles off
of TCM on our Replay. This will be easy I thought, I bought her a 4GB
Micro-SD and copied the movie to the card. Plugged it in and nothing. The
Sansa's firmware was crippled in such a way that it would not look for
movies on the card no matter what. I later heard (not confirmed) that this
was a DRM issue. In fact, the Sansa will see nothing other than MP3s on the
expansion card. Sorta defeats the purpose in my book.
Now I do not know if the current crop of Sansa devices still have this ugly
behavior, but its enough that I did not even consider that brand when buying
some new ones for my younger kids this Christmas.
Have a happy holiday....
