iriver (formerly iRiver) is a consumer electronics company headquartered in South Korea and widely known for its digital audio players and other portable media devices.

iRiver Description

iRiver's current products can all play MP3 and WMA audio files. Some units support text viewing, Ogg Vorbis audio files, Macromedia Flash, and/or BMP files. The company also supports Microsoft PlaysForSure, which allows recent products to support subscription-based music download services, including URGE, Napster, Rhapsody, and Yahoo! Music Unlimited. It also lets users disable its DRM functionality.

Most iriver players include a unique feature called study mode. Users can quickly jump back and forth within tracks by a certain time interval, set from three to 180 seconds in current models. The option was designed to help people listening to recorded language lessons. SonicBlue removed this feature from its Rio Volt models, causing some users to hack their players with iriver firmware from other regions.

Clix (iRiver's flaship product)
X20 (portable video player with a removable battery and expandable with microSD cards)
P10 and P20
APlayer and APlayer II(screen version of the APlayer)

Problem You Might Have

To play videos on iRiver, you might need to pay attention to the video format which you are going to play on it since it can only play serval video formats including MP4, WMV, AVI (MPEG-4 cedec support), YouTube FLV. So, if you want to play camcorder recordings like MTS footage, MOD, MXF, XAVC, MOV, etc on the device, you need to convert them into a format that supported by iRiver first.
