Im not sure of all the formats (it can use MP3 and MP4 though) , but one of the biggest letdowns for me was no .avi support. At least not yet. There are a few video converters around though, so you could convert stuff from mpeg, avi, etc. to mp4 and such.

I'm hoping for quicktime movie files soon,  only reason is because ALOT OF HD  trailers are in Quicktime format.
