MP4s are types of digital format that allow portable devices to play hundreds or thousands of songs or hours of video. Like mobile speakers, they are portable devices that are small and light and have a capacious battery life, enough for hours of playback. For you to play or download music to your MP4 players, you need to have a computer with a USB port. Though other advanced players can connect to the internet independently and download music. Likewise, if you have multimedia programs like Windows Media Player or iTunes, you can 'rip' tracks to your computer and move those files to your player as well. There are some things you need to consider when buying MP4 players in Malaysia.
MP4 players in Malaysia come in three general designs - the bar style, the stick, and the touchscreen. The bar style is the most common variant that offers a display for video and hard controls. The stick has a basic design, providing only bare bones features but is the smallest, lightest and cheapest option. While the touchscreen model has similar capabilities to a portable computer, providing full video, web, app and gaming features.
This is the factor that determines the amount of music and video that can be stored in a player. Most MP4 tracks use approximately 1MB per minute of music. If the average track is 5 minutes, then a 1GB (1,000MB) player can store 200 tracks, while a 4GB (4,000MB) player can store around 800 tracks.
A display on a player allows you to easily select albums, choose songs and watch videos. However, this also makes it heavier to carry. Touchscreen devices also offer advanced features such as apps and games, though this increases the cost.
With MP4 downloads, you buy digital music files from the internet and download them to your computer. You can purchase single songs or whole albums from various music download sites. Before you can download music from these music download services, they require you to have a space on your hard drive, a computer with the minimum required specifications (such as a Windows PC that can run a modern web browser, such as the latest version of Google Chrome, and has the current version of Windows Media Player), and a broadband internet connection.
How to download music to MP4 players?
First, you will need to select a music download service. These websites should allow you to look for your favorite tracks, and once you've found the artist that you like, click on the song or album name that you want to purchase. Before that, it's a standard practice that you'll have to sign up for an account, where you can check your purchases before you download your MP4s. Once you are done downloading MP4 videos and MP3 files, they can be transferred on to a portable digital music player, such as your MP4 player.
