    i have no problems with software i already have... no need to get another.

    im just curious what this format is.

    it says "for some new players and hardware" and nothing more...

    might be better quality but takes up more space?

    Haven't looked into it at all, but it smells like some sort of DRM/copy prevention to me :(

    EDIT: Ok now I spent a good 30 seconds looking into it... It's some proprietary formatting/naming convention for playing different types of media on different players.
    It's totally useless.
