On this we completely agree. I tried some videos that I encoded last night and had mixed success. If VLC was out for the Xoom we wouldn't even be talking about video as being an issue most likely. One would think with the hardware available on the Xoom we shouldn't be seeing stuttering video issues and videos that refuse to play. This will get addressed, I'm sure. But it is an area that definitely needs work.
