It depends on the size of the video file, you probably have about 20mbs free out of 64mb. If you go to options/status should tell you how much space you have left. If you opt for the media card, check buy.com or newegg for deals.

I doubt you would need a media card for that size of a file, but the temptation to view a longer and then a longer longer video will be in the back of your head. Micro sd cards are cheap now, go ahead and get one for you may want to add more videos and music later on.

You can also check out Meritline.com. I bought a 1 gig card there a while back and it was less than 20 bucks. you can get a 2 gig for slightly more than that now.

A few weeks back I got a 1GB card (with mini- and regular SD adapters) for $9.99 shipped (no rebate). There are good deals that pop up!

I thought there was a limitation on the size of videos and MP3 you can put on the Pearl's memory. In other words, if you have 20mb in memory unused, you CANNOT put a 15mb video file on the Pearl, for example.

As I recall, the individual file size is about 2.5mb or something like that.

So it depends on the size of your video file, not the length.

Get a MicroSD card on Amazon, a 1GB is about $15 nowadays.
