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.

Still... you need to install something... opposed to UMS, when everything just works and you can use you player as a portable storage too. Also, it's more future-proof.


How is it future proof? MTP and PTP are fully documented specifications - the use isn't decreasing, in fact, the opposite is occurring.

As for the iPod - they only use it to speed up file browsing/scanning/searching - if you've ever used UMS based music devices or RockBox, you'll notice lag when browsing music.

I don't think MTP and PTP can really compare on usage with FAT and NTFS... And I'm sure both are more future-proof then MTP and PTP.

I do use a UMS audio device and there's no lag for browsing at all.
It's all about the implementation.
