Zune is a product line of portable media players, manufactured by Microsoft. The line also Zune software and Zune Marketplace services sold by Microsoft, which provide online music, video, and podcast downloads. Zune's primary competitors are the Apple iTunes/iPod product line and the SanDisk Sansa line. Zune players come in two variants, one hard-drive based and the other flash-memory based. Both play music, videos, and podcasts, display images, and receive (but not record) FM radio with RDS. They can share files wirelessly with other Zunes and via USB with Xbox 360s and Windows PCs. Any Zune can also be synced wirelessly with a Windows PC. The Zune is currently not compatible with Mac OS X or Linux.
Zune software, which runs only on Windows XP, Vista, and Windows 7 allows users to manage files on the player, rip audio CDs, manage music, and buy songs, music videos, and TV shows at the Zune Marketplace online store using Microsoft Points or a Zune Pass, which allows the subscriber to download unlimited songs temporarily and permanently keep ten favorite songs each month.
Zune video formats
We can get Zune videos from the Microsoft Zune Marketplace and other Pay-Per-Download Sites which have movie downloads, music downloads, music video downloads, and more. The problem with downloading Zune files from places like Microsoft Zune Marketplace is the cost. That is to say, it is not the best choice. We all have known that "Both come with a new touchpad-style input device and new software (also available for the Zune 30.) Additional file support for H.264 and MPEG-4 file was also included". And computer users nowadays are likely storing many video clips in their hard disk.
However, because of the screen size and the video sources, they may need to convert the videos on computer before importing their clips to this beautiful mobile device. If we want our videos playback for the Zune, we must convert the unfit video files to Zune video files by MP4, H.264 or WMV formats.
