Default Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 video Converting Issue

I have recently purchased a Samsung Gaxaly Tab 2 7.0 GT-P3110. I am having a big problem with videos which I am converting from my DVDs to watch on the GT-P3110.
It seems that no matter what mpeg4 / avi or Samsung Galaxy Tab program pre set formats I convert them to, when copying to the 32GB micro SD card or internal memory on the tablet, I get a message that this video is not in a format that can be played.
I have been using Any Video Converter Ultimate as well as other free programs.
I am new to Android, so I would appreciate any help with the frustrating issue.

Use the Samsung Kies program to convert them. It automatically converts videos to formats playable by the tablet. Or you can download other players. Curious though, as I've never had trouble converting DVDs before. What program are you using to RIP them from the DVD?

I use MX Player app from playstore, I find it will play most formats although you have to accept the message that it will probably not play on your device. So far I have not converted files since I downloaded it. Its free and worth a try.

Handbrake is probably the #1 app recommended by users, so it should definitely work. I've had good results using H.264 video in an MPEG4 container with AAC audio.
