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.

Ouch! Is there some standby/hibernate/whatever, or do you have to wait for 15 seconds every time you start it?

Can it resume playback from where you left it when you shut it off? Can you bookmark a position in a file? These are important features for audiobooks.

Please read more carefully. I clearly say that coming back from standby is INSTANT. The player NEVER really turns off when you click the power button. The full loading of the OS that takes 15 seconds *only* happens if you manually reset the player. You won't need to do that more than once every 6 months or something, just in case it crashed.

Yes, the player remember where it was for videos and music. So when you come back to a video, it continues playing back from the second you had left it off.

Ah, good. Sorry for missing it... my bad.

Can you bookmark a position in a file? (E.g., if you want to pause your audiobook and listen to something else for a while and then want to go back where you left it.)
