    asus transformer video play

    Hi,
    I was just wondering if transformer requires some sort of encoding to play video files.
    I haven't got mine yet, but the reason for purchase is simple: video and school work.
    So, I was just curious how well transformer plays video.
    Thank You

    I've had no problems playing .avi or .mp4 files, including ones with subtitles. However, I use Moboplayer to view them instead of the stock video player.

    moboplayer? I have never heard them? How are they better than stock video player?
    And I was surprised that asus plays subtitle too?? Did you encode the subtitle into the video files or transformer automatically picked it up?

    https://market.android.com/details?i...=search_result is Moboplayer on the market, and its better than the stock player because it recognizes a wider range of video files. It does require installing a separate code though: https://market.android.com/details?i...il.armv7_vfpv3 but both are free. The subtitles I have are part of the video file, I personally hate having separate files for subtitles.

    MoboPlayer is the player of choice by many Honeycomb tablet owners... it's also FREE!

    I hope the recently announced Honeycomb 3.1 update will provide some significant improvements to video playback. At the very least to have better Tegra 2 based optimisation, so it's able to play back every format that the Tegra 2 decoder is physically able to play. Obviously there are going to be those format that'll never play (such as H.264 1080p high profile).

    I thought there was a player that allowed hardware playback vs the software if this is so the tegra sghould be able to play anything you put in its way I would think

    actually the Tegra2 Chip can accelerate many different formats, its the lack of codecs that are written for it that restrict HC in making use of all the functionality.

    it supports very limited formats, but you can install a free player for transformer, such as qq player, mobo player, stock player etc. however, as far as i know, these players can't play container formats fine, such as mkv, avi, vob. For the videos can't be played by players, you have to convert them.

    If you have many videos to deal with, i suggest you using Foxreal video converter, it supports a wide range of video formats, specially designed based on Nvidia CUDA technology, if you use Nvidia video card, the conversion speed will much faster than common conversion.
