If you travel often, you need a multimedia player that you can use on the go. Look for a player that comes with a hard drive (at least 30 GB). That should allow you to store about 40 movies encoded using a PC. An LCD color screen of dimension exceeding 4 inches should suffice while you are on the move. Otherwise, the devise should allow you to watch content on your TV, in high resolution, up to 720 x 576 DVD quality.

The package should include, apart from the player, a dedicated USB 2.0 cable, headphones, and a DVR station adapter.

With the DVR station, you should be able to use your multimedia player as a digital video recorder, being able to from television and other video sources such as DVD player, VCR, and camcorder in a currently used format.

You can use the hard drive to store movies, viewable in popular formats such as PNG, BMP and JPEG, as well as music files such as WAV, MP3, and WMA. The player should also have a song library hat allows you to organize music and sort them by title, type of music, album, artist, and so on. It should also facilitate creation of a play-list without having to use a computer.

Such a player will be especially useful for a frequent traveler if it is WiFi enabled, with a built in browser. This will not only allow you to access your mail, but also exchange and play files directly from a WiFi enabled PC, as well as listen to internet radio transmissions.

There are WiFi multimedia players on the market that can be used as a camcorder by connecting digital cameras using an optional DVR travel adapter. Another feature of such players is in being able to record audio and video podcasts without having to rely on a PC.

When you select a multimedia player to accompany you on your travel itinerary, look for one with battery life that allows music playback time of at least 16 hours and video playback time of at least 5 hours.
