Discless DVD Player?

I need to create a public information display system. Its only purpose will be to play a looping 10-30 minute video on a 27-32" NTSC display. It will be installed in a traveling exhibit. The whole thing needs to be durable, and I would prefer to forgo using a DVD player or anything with portable media or moving parts (including hard drives). I am wondering if there are any solid state play back devices. Something small that the attendant would only need to power on and press play. Anyone know if such a thing exists and where I could find it. [more inside]

How do I open a computer chip?

I'd like to open up a defunct computer chip to photograph it under a microscope and inspect the city therein. Has anyone done this? How do I pry the tiny solid state thing open without destroying its beauty?
