Thanks Gary I was beginning to wonder if I had picked the right one as I saw it in another store for $100 less but as usual they didn't have it in stock - I suppose to draw one in and then sell you what they do want to sell you one of.

Now you have lost me with all that MPEG4?AVC?H.264 stuff as I think you knew you would LOL!! But as long as it takes video and plays back I shall work it out.

The VLC mate I think I have got it on one of the machines:)

Hi there
Are you taking a laptop or a tablet.

If you are - a much cheaper option -- get a 2TB passport self powered ext USB drive. Now copy your video file to it and then use VLC player to play the video.

The 2TB drive only costs around 100 USD and is a better solution IMO than getting a "Hand held Video recorder" --whatever that is -- sounds like a camcorder.

If the 2TB one is too expensive you can get 1 TB drives or even 500GB drives. Even a 500GB drive can hold a lot of video -- you won't I'm sure on your overseas trip be spending a lot of time in a hotel watching video.

Cheers

No I wasn't Jim but what I was thinking of doing is using my brothers machine to download to either some sticks or I can take one of the several externals I have here. I have a couple of 32GB SD cards so I should get a fair bit on them as it is:)

No mate won't be in a hotel either I like self catering accommodation so I can feel like I am at home - all cluttered and untidy - until I go of course LOL!!

Hi

I've got another suggestion -- download the video to a micro sd card in a PHONE and you can play the multi-media on an external TV with a micro USB===>HDMI cable for the phone.

(You can even play the stuff on the phone - but the screens are usually a bit small for watching video for any length of tme).

I've found this a very easy way -- I'm sure you've got a phone. The media player works fine on Android phones so you don't need a Windows phone to do this.

G'day mate -- always like visiting 'OZ. I had some Pom friends last time I was there -- had a great day at the Sydney Cricket Ground with "The Barmy Army" --never been so drunk in my life. !!!!

Cheers
