Video downloads now on Zune Marketplace! Seven things to know about Zune 2.5
« on: May 05, 2008, 08:59:56 PM »



Tomorrow morning, Microsoft will release Zune 2.5 - a spring update to Zune software, player firmware, and Zune Marketplace.

We were able to view the update ahead of time... so without making you wait any longer, here are seven things to know about Zune 2.5.

1. Video downloads. About $2 per video, there are 800 television episodes on Marketplace, from NBC, Adult Swim, Anime, Comedy Central, MTV, MTV2, VH1, BET, Nickelodeon, and Ultimate Fighting.

2. Autoplaylists. Yep, they're back by popular demand.

3. Gapless Playback. It's here!

4. Metadata editing. It's fun again, with multiple track editing, right-click edit, album art copy/paste, "find album art", drag-and-drop updating, video metadata editing, and more. See the link below for more on this.

5. Social. There are significant updates to Zune's social networking features. See the link below for a summary.

And there are more significant updates. For screen shots and much more info, see our overview of Zune 2.5.

Since Microsoft is working to integrate you zune tags as much as possible it would be nice to see that the videos I purchased on my 360 making it onto my Zune might be a ways away but that would be a good thing to have

With the exception of new Social connectivity, everything you listed is something I have needed at one point or another.  I can make use of the autoplaylists and gapless playback right away.  Thank you Zune team.

Hopfully they will release a free episode just to test it out. Of course I would never buy it (since I got Tivo and Media Center) but still...

You're kidding me right? Well, this is the internet and there are a few people who get aroused by stuff like this.

Anyway, i agree with you. I am So 'effing happy. Too bad I don't have a Zune right now... in for repairs.

The funny thing is that I'm REALLY unlikely to download any of the videos from the marketplace (since I'm a TV on DVD junkie), but I'm glad to see them offered.  It's a nice "bullet point" feature to tout. 

And that there Adult Swim and BSG support is pretty darn nice.  Honestly, I might be tempted to bite the bullet and download the current BSG season, since my local cable's sci-fi feed is awful.  I hate being double-dipped...but I do love those shiny Cylons.  Just wish it was up in HD...

Re: Gapless playback:

.wma files are playing seamlessly but .mp3's still have small gaps.

The Podcast playback feature got improved....now we have playlist controls for video and audio podcasts. Nice.

I notice like the battery was improved...but it is hard to tell. And the volume got increased or my earing have improved.....
