Multimedia, AV Everytime we feature a multimedia device review here at OSNews the question is always the same: "...but does it support OGG?". Well, this time we do have such a device in our lab to test out for you. Geeks.com sent us in the iRiver E10, a powerful multimedia music and video player.

The H10 is more than a year older than the E10. So it's not a case of "removing" Ogg, but not having implemented it yet at the time. All their new players support OGG.

My iHP-120 is waaaay older than both the H10 and E10, and supports Vorbis without problems...

Maybe then it runs a different OS? Looking the pics, the UI of the H10 does not look very similar to the one on the U10 or E10.

The iHP-120 doesn't do gapless OGG, unless you're running RockBox that is...

And no, removing intentional silence from the last few seconds of a track isn't gapless. Gapless means removing unintentional silence between tracks.

I was so happy when RockBox arrived for the iHP-120 a couple of years ago. Without it my iRiver was all but useless since I only listen to albums with overlapping/blended tracks.
