Wanna watch a movie?.....go class 6 or10!

Well..I decided to try out a feature movie and downloaded onto my Kingston 8GB microSD card (class 4).

I used VLC to play the movie and although the soundtrack played no problem, the video was chinked and scattered. I then went online to find out what could be the matter...and in that due diligence, was shown that class 4 (the most common) is below spec's for video. You need a class 6, or better yet, a class 10 for read/write speeds.

So...another Ho,Ho,Ho trip to the store for a 32 GB (yeah...I'll load it up with vids and music, lol) class 10.

For books, pictures, and music though, the most common class 4 rated card is just fine. It's only read speed for videos that needs the faster class cards. That was my experience,...

I had the same problem with a Class 4 Kingston 8gb micro SD card. But it's VLC that's the problem. With Mobo Player, I have no issues with watching videos from that same card.

I have movies on my Kingston 8GB card, and my movies play flawlessly on my Vox with Gallery. I am not touching a thing!!!

Remember that the 'internal' card is just class 4. Videos work fine on my class 4 32GB card.

Depends on the quality of the video, and the quality of the SD and it's age and and and... new 32gb class 6 will be fun anyway.

Really? Thanks...before I go out, I'll check that out. I was watching...well, trying to watch P.O.T.Carib. Was a no go with VLC.

BTW, I'm sitting here reading ANAND Tech's download feed put together as a magazine by Calibre. I'm also listening to the Gypsy Kings, played by the Vox through Bose on-ear headphones...and the present reading/listening environment is simply fantastic! Simply fantastic! The Bose are bringing the music to life with such well balanced bass to the mid, and high range. This is being rendered of course by the Vox. Wonderful! With the right headphones, the Vox is more than a competent music delivery system. I'm also doing all this with the Vox plugged into the wall. Why waste the battery? No problems whatsoever with it plugged in and running/doing.

Naysayers can spout what they will about the Kobo Vox. For myself, it has been nothing less then fantastic from the day of purchase. Great reading and sonic experience, as well as a most beautiful display. As another poster on this forum stated...perhaps Kobo put less money on the GHz side of things with the Proc...but opted to give you an excellent display. To me...for reading books and magazines...indoors or out...this is where the eyes-meet-the-road.

In buying the Vox, there are no regrets. Absolutely no regrets, and much personal satisfaction generated. It took me (like everybody else) a little time to find the apps I wanted,...to set up the parameters as I wanted, but with that little time invested...the payout in all-round entertainment has been huge. I wish my investments gave such good equity. Not!

The class speed is the minimum guaranteed write speed. Read speeds are usually higher, actually significantly higher. For your average movie, a class 4 should be plenty fast - that's 4MB/s, so if you were to encode a 2 hours movie at 4MB/s, it would actually require ~29GB of space. As you can see, your movies are not encoded at that high bit rate.

I now have Mobo Player, and it works great. A very slight stutter at Class 4. Class 6 would probably be the movie and video sweet spot for the extCard.
