While you can directly place music and photo files through Explorer, video files must be converted and transferred using Windows Media Player. Consequently the Archos 105 requires video files in windows media (WMV) format. The resultant file that resides on the device is about 75 MB per hour, which means you should be able to cram 20-25 hours of video on the 2GB of internal flash (non-expandable). In the settings, you can choose for a video to playback once and stop, or to loop. In my test it played video for about 4.5 hours on a single charge. While the screen is small (160 x 128 pixels), it's good enough to watch tv shows on. You can fast forward and rewind through a video file, but not quick-skip (e.g. skip 30 seconds at a time). There is a resume feature, so you can continue watching a video at the point where you left off. Another feature is the ability to turn one of your photos into a wallpaper.
Overall, it's a nice, small video player, especially if you can get it for $50. It also does mp3s and photos, and can act like a flash drive in a pinch. It's a great gadget to give to kids so they can watch their videos during trips.
Highly recommended... especially if you catch it on sale (as I did!) Also, Gizmos4Life shipped it quickly and in great shape... I highly recommend them as well!

Would have given it a 5 star but there is no place to attach a Lanyard.
Everything else works as expected.
nice music player. incredible graphics, but I don't use that.
UI is not quite as intuitive as I would like, hence, the 4 stars.
