    Cruddy Video Playback

    Why does the TF have such overall crappy video playback? I had a Playbook for a couple weeks and that device would play almost anything I threw at it with much greater ease than my TF so far. Like I just converted the new Katy Perry TGIF video using Handbrake according to settings I found here - [GUIDE] 720p Handbrake preset for TF101 (HC3.1 Update) - xda-developers and it's unwatchable in either Rock Player with hardware or software decoding or the native movie player. Seems like about half the videos I try play horrible like this, what gives?

    Beats me. I use the same settings in handbrake and get perfectly fine videos from DVD source.
    I'm assuming you are running Honeycomb 3.1?

    Yes, and I even converted a 1080P BR rip of Grindhouse using these settings and it works perfectly smooth, but this one video no matter what is just choppy as hell

    Mine is mainly lovely and has very smooth playback. I will say though that I played avi from my camera and it did not do so well, but avi hd files downloaded from the internet looked and played remarkably well. Leads me to believe the source of the file is crucial.

    Download this with a youtube downloader and see how it runs for you

    YouTube - ‪Katy Perry - Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)‬‏

    Sweet got it to work decent, used some mtube or something app to download it in 720P rather than 1080P now it runs perfect, why not 1080P though shouldn't this device handle this?

    I have the same problem. Even if I get the video to open the quality is terrible. I think there may be an issue with the video card in this thing or something because even still images look blurry on it.

    Why would you want 1080p when your screen is only 800 pixels high?

    720p is 1280 by 720 which is a near perfect fit for your display. Whereas 1080p is 1920 by 1080, which means that the system has to read larger files and then scale them down to get the same results as just displaying the 720p almost directly.

    well I dunno htat it was 1080P after I converted, I was using htat 720P converter guide for Handbrake, and I did it with a 1080P rip of Grindhouse and it worked perfect, then did it wiht that Katy Perry video and it was horrible, just couldn't figure out why one worked and one didn't but guess if I run into that again I'll just use that youtube downloader.
