    Converted an entire DVD movie ("The Book Of Kells") last night. Sound and video play fine on the Transformer. Very smooth playback.

    Plex streaming works close to perfection. It is not 100% smooth but basically it's transcoding on the PC on-the-fly to MPEG2 (I think). At present the Android app does not support subtitles but they are coming. I've been able to play nearly everything over local wifi at 1280x800 with audio at 5Mbps (The highest quality it goes) without many issues. So it CAN play MPEG2 back smoothly it would seem. Just not many H264 variants it seems. At least not with audio decoding that is. If no audio is present H264 plays buttery smooth. I really hope they fix this. As of now I have to pack my TF up tonight ready to send off tomorrow for repair of the busted left speaker.

    It's going via DHL to the Czec republic from the UK (EEK!). Scary. :/

    I don't expect to see it for 2 weeks. Unless if I am lucky. More if not.

    I had a video(avi divx) that played fine in moboplayer in Honeycomb 3.0.1. Once my machine updated to 3.1, it stopped being able to play. I was then able to play it in software mode only. Is there a chance that moboplayer needs to be updated for 3.1?

    Mine is also going there for back light bleeding issues. The warranty conditions they send say it should be back within 7 days! Heres to hoping that is the case!

    A couple of words:

    1. After reading a post on this forum, I purchased DVD Catalyst and have to say that it worked flawlessly to convert my test DVD (Iron Man) to MP4 format for viewing on the TF. I used the Motorola Xoom settings in DVD Catalyst. I just used the built-in video player (Gallery).

    2. Splashtop works great for streaming video from my desktop computer to my Transformer. The best part is that this also works away from home (tried it yesterday). I tried Teamviewer as well, but it doesn't stream sound, whereas Splashtop does.

    Let me know how you get on. I did not like all the terms and conditions including having to sign that agreement. It genuinely sucks it has to travel all that way for a repair. I only hope mine comes back perfect (No dust bunnies under the screen etc after opening it up or worse light bleed etc) or I will be a seriously annoyed. I hope my packing is sufficient too. I used the Ebuyer box it originally came in with that large air bubbles wrap stuff they put in.

    Here is the solution to the video playback problem. Basically you have to convert your video files to mp4. I have done this with Handbrake as explained by xda-developers and it works perfectly. Good luck.

    Why many videos don't play...

    Just wanted to add to what may have already been said... AVI first of all is a container for different encoded files. So some AVI files will play, some won't depending on what they are encoded with. It's confusing that a file format can actually contain different video formats!

    Like every computer i've ever worked with, each one has a limited set of audio and video codecs it comes with out of the box. On a Mac or on Windows you can only play so many types of audio and video before you have to install either some audio and/or video codec, or install a completely new program. VLC is the champ as far as I know on all platforms for playing most audio and video formats. I've never written a program to use audio or video codecs so I am not sure how a program like VLC can use other codecs installed after VLC is, but it is capable of doing this. The point is, just like VLC, the video players on Android use the installed codecs to play audio and video. If Android 3 only comes with a couple of audio and video codecs installed, you either have to find more codecs that work on Android 3, or an application (video player) that has more bundled within it's code. It is indeed possible that some apps "hard code" their audio and/or video support for certain formats which is why some players may play back video while other players on the same system won't.

    I too am very disappointed that video is so choppy. I have to believe it is not do to hardware.. as we all know far lesser gear, such as my original moto droid, can play video just fine.

    The one that really bugs me though is streaming! I am really pissed that hulu, netflix, even videos on youtube are dog slow at best (or in the case of hulu and netflix, not even available). Still, I love the tablet for so many other reasons that this wouldn't cause me to return it. I know support will eventually get there, I just hope it's not months and months later.

    I do streaming regularly, and rarely see the symptoms described.

    More important, since you can download any YouTube and play it back on the Transformer (HD stuff is stunning), there are alternatives.

    As with any device, streaming results are directly proportionate to the bandwidth/speed of the WIFI connection. I have had stellar results, and sometimes when traveling and in a hotel room or other location...not as good.

    In my case, I let the stream buffer for a long time until it's finished usually..then hit play and still get choppy playback. Youtube plays fine if I let it buffer, so you may be right about the wifi thing, although I have 2 wifi networks both are streaming N, and I have no problem to my other computers or my ipad (gasp.. it's my wifes)!
