==TrekStorDiscontinued players ==There are many more portable I think that discontinued players by TrekStor than the ishould be moved into a different section.beat 500 supporting ogg vorbis Not necessarily removed, as many are still available on clearance/refurbished/used.
Please add products The question is, how to make the main split? I see three possibilities:# Discontinued players on a separate page# same page, but separate top-level section. e.g.:#* Current devices#** Flash-memory devices#** HD devices#** CD/DVD devices#* Discontinued devices#** Flash-memory devices#** HD devices#** CD/DVD devices# make a subsection within each section. e.g.:#* Flash-memory devices#**Current devices#**Discontinued devices#* HD devices#**Current devices#**Discontinued devices#* CD/DVD devices#**Current devices#**Discontinued devices
== LG players ==I think LG'll hold off any updates right now, but I'll check back in a few days/weeks/whenever and see if there's player MF-FM30 looks niceany opinions here. BUT If there's no disagreement by then, does and noone has beat me to it have support , I'll take the initiative. [[User:Bsammon|Bsammon]] 03:43, 30 May 2010 (UTC) :Having sections for UMS discontinued devices (the products homepage doesnon each subpage) is fine - but I suggest to avoid explicit ''Current devices'' sections. With a ''discontinued devices''t say so so I guess not) or does there software work in Linux? Somebody who knows?Hannulan section on a page it is immediately clear that everything listed before is current.-- 23[[User:48Gsauthof|Gsauthof]] 10:09, 1 oktober 200630 September 2011 (PDT)
== List of top five players ==
I totally agree with the above. This page was next to useless for me when I was shopping for a Vorbis player since I was overwhelmed with choices. Add to that the fact that many products have been discontinued or cannot be bought new and there's a recipe for disaster. - erpo41 October 17th, 2007
 
I also agree with the above; the primary reason I am not using Ogg Vorbis (I keep a parallel collection of mp3 and flac files) is I cannot easily find a portable player. I don't know that reorganizing this wiki page will help. I did comb through this page; basically all of the listed hard disk players are from one off manufacturers or not being manufactured any more. There are plenty of nice flash storage based devices and cell phones (from Samsung and others), but that is not what I am looking for. Also, I'm not interested in hacking my iPod. (I do embedded linux development enough at work; I'll pay someone else to get my media player working). Until this is addressed, Ogg Vorbis is going to remain out of use; which is a shame because for every other reason it is the best (in my opinion). --Kevin Holzer, January 10, 2009
:Yes. This is a good idea. Create a section at the top. Polish it well. And perhaps add a free-licensed photo. Anyone up for it?--[[User:Saoshyant|Ivo]] 06:41, 17 October 2007 (PDT)
I would rather see just a simple feature matrix (sorted so that unavailable devices are listed at the bottom, or just not listed at all). See talk below. Maybe preferred choises could be raised to the top thought! I agree that current list is quite unusable.
 
:As of now, the page contains a feature matrix, which only lists current and available devices. Thus, when you check this page out for buying advice it should be more useful now, i.e. it has no overwhelming effect anymore. I consider the raised issues as '''done'''. --[[User:Gsauthof|Gsauthof]] 10:04, 30 September 2011 (PDT)
== Recording in Vorbis ==
:Is there something very wrong with those proposals? I mean, is there any reason why (even a simple) feature matrix just could not be applied right now? It would probably solve 'list of top 5 players' problem above too. Just list something basic from the main features, name, size, weight, price, battery (internal, aa, aaa, ..), capasity, flash card type (sd, microsd, ..) , availability (current or discontinued), supported formats, charging (usb or propietary or none). Link to the longer comments. No complicated sorting or anything too fancy. No icons. Name can be a abbreviation to save space, use it as a link to current comments.

== NEXBlack out ==
I've just got the 2GB Sumvision and it plays the OGG files I've tested so far. Should I add it to the list? [[User:Steevc|Steevc]] 04:05, 19 April 2007 (PDT)
:Yes, [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Be_bold just do it :)]. --[[User:Gsauthof|Gsauthof]] 10:18, 30 September 2011 (PDT)
== Humble A2 Review ==
Just a blog link [http://www.personal.psu.edu/gsc127/blogs/2007/10/happiness_with_cowon_a2happiness-with-cowon-a2.html to my review of the the Cowon A2]. Thanks, [[User:GChriss|GChriss]] 13:23, 6 November 2007 (PST) == iRiver e100 == [http://reviews.cnet.com/4566-6490_7-0.html?filter=1000036_5260177_ CNet] and [http://www.amazon.com/iRiver-E100-Multimedia-Player-White/dp/B00171UYYS/ref=pd_bbs_sr_5?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1208253617&sr=8-5 Amazon] are saying the iRiver e100 supports Vorbis. I haven't tested it myself. [[User:Mattflaschen|Mattflaschen]] 03:09, 15 April 2008 (PDT) == Bought an vorbis-enabled player recently? Tell us where! == I have started a page that should allow people easier purchasing of vorbis-enabled players: [[PortablePlayers_per_Place]] Everyone, who bought an vorbis-enabled player recently should update the page with place and model. == Move Flash/HD-sections to dedicated pages == Hi, IMHO the PortablePlayers page is too long. I want to split it into several pages for each main section. Like [[PortablePlayers/Flash]], [[PortablePlayers/Harddisk]] etc.. Sure, one have to fix some links then, but I am convinced this step would increase the usability a lot.What do you think about that? --[[User:Gsauthof|Gsauthof]] 01:20, 31 March 2009 (PDT) :Since there were no objections I restructured the page as planned. --[[User:Gsauthof|Gsauthof]] 10:07, 27 June 2010 (UTC)
