Coby MP735 4GB Video MP3 Player
This video MP3 player comes with a 1.66-inch LCD color screen complete with FM stereo speakers. It has a display resolution of 128x160 and supports MP3 and WMA playback. On the video front, AVI is supported, not to mention popular image formats. You can also listen to your favorite radio stations with its FM tuner.
You may have an issue with video conversion for playback though. If you think you are free to use any video converter to create AVI files, you are mistaken. If you want to playback AVI files in your player, you would have to convert it with the program that comes with the player.
Don’t expect much from the speakers though. You may be satisfied listening to it in a small, quiet room but you probably won't be if there are distracting sounds.
This 4GB player features a 1.8-inch TFT LCD display with a resolution of 128x160. As usual, MP3 and WMA are supported. ID3 tags are supported as well. When it comes to video, the MTV format is supported.
You may not have heard of this video format. Worry not, as the Coby Media Manager software included in the player package will take care of conversion for you.
Priced at $24.21 at Amazon, you may consider it a steal. You may not be impressed with the video quality of the MTV format, though, which may not be any better than video captured with a cheap mobile telephone.

Coby MP705 4GB Video MP3 Player
If you are looking for a Coby video MP3 player with a relatively large screen size, take a closer look at this model. It comes with a two-inch screen, bearing a resolution of 176 x 220.
This player supports not only MP3 and WMA, but also OGG. On the video front, you have more options, too as WMV, FLV and AVI are supported. FLV support means you can download web video from file sharing sites without converting them.
You will find very little to complain about this player. At the time of writing, the player retails for $32.99 at Amazon.

Coby MP826 4GB Video MP3 Player
There are two impressive aspects of this video MP3 player. The display size is 2.8 inches and the video formats supported are WMV, AVI, MP4 and even ASF.
This is notable for a video MP3 player priced at $49.99 at Amazon, at the time of writing. At such a price, you will find very little to complain about the player. You may find operating the player in the touchscreen mode a little challenging in the beginning, though.

Coby MP707 4GB Video MP3 Player
This model has the standard features of the other models overall. The display size is two inches with a resolution of 176 x 220. What you may find disappointing is that the player only supports the MTV video format, the quality of which has been explained above.
On the audio front, only MP3 and WMA are supported, which is disappointing if you are a fan of the OGG format. At the time of writing, this model is priced at $33.24 at Amazon.
Now that you have perused the Coby 4GB Video MP3 player models, take your time to explore their additional features before making a buying decision.
