Android phone only supports relatively few video formats (only supports H.263, H.264 AVC, MPEG-4 SP video format).

So if you want to play AVI, Xvid, DivX, MKV, WMV, RM, FLV, SWF, ASF, MPG, MOV, MPEG, HD, MTS, M2TS, and TS on your Android phone like Samsung i7500, Samsung Galaxy, HTC Hero, HTC Legend, HTC Desire HD, HTC Wildfire, Motorola Droid, Motorola Flipout, Sony Ericsson Xperia X10, LG Ally and etc, you need to convert them to android phone compatible video format like mpeg-4

the following is a step by step guide on how to do that
http://www.********.com/articles/how-to-convert-video-to-android-phone-format.html

hope it helps more or less

NiceJane is wrong. Using the MoboPlayer, I can play AVI, WMV, FLV, MPG, MOV, & MP4 files on my Android 2.2-based LG Optimus S, which only has a 600MHz ARM6 CPU and is far less powerful than the Galaxy. Android only natively supports these video file formats, but software developers are free to write software to decode whatever file format they like. You really just need good media player software. Try MoboPlayer or RockPlayer.

However, just because a particular format is supported by a media player, that doesn't mean that your phone has the horsepower to smoothly decode and display higher definition video files. For example, my lowly LG Optimus can play relatively low-resolution AVI files smoothly, but it can't smoothly play high-resolution AVI files.

The rule is that simple - only convert a video if your phone can't play it.

So you need to convert the video to phone compatible format. Some free software like handbrake can do the job well.

Here is another storage option for you, a free converer:

Well, I should to say I love freeware or the shareware when it's in giveaway.

Hi,
Use Mobo Player. It can play all videos without conversion. I hav tried many players. Mobo Player is the best one I think. It's working fine in my phone. It is a free application.

Yes, but in case it doesn't play (for example HD videos), you will need to convert it to a format natively supported by Android.

Samsung has improved the standard Android player with their own version in SGS2. This one is able to play Divx/Xvid encoded files.

So, basically you can use the default player, and if you come across a video file that you can't play, try another one from Market.

Question

hi everyone...

i'm considering buying the SGS2 soon...

Right now i'm using the Nokia N900, which as you know, is incredible and superb. as well as, it can play any video extension in the whole universe (seriously) without shattering or lag!!!

question is: Does the SGS2 (particularly) play the HDTV (for watching TV series) videos with XviD or DIVX and the x264 formats?... and can i download the highest quality of HDTV videos (such as 720p x264) and without shattering (since it has a powerful process!) using the built-in media player ?


Guys I REALLY REALLY REALLY need the answer as fast as possible

So PLEASE give me a hand... so i can enter the Android world

You question is SGS2 specific, so it would be best to discuss it in SGS2 forum section: Samsung Galaxy S2 - Android Forums

As far as I know, you should have no trouble to play most of the video formats with the SGS2 video player (Divx/Xvid/x264 720p up to MP should not be a problem). In case you have an issue, you can always try other video players from Market that are specifically optimized for dual-core phones.

thanks so much for the fast replying...

i almost forgot one more question !l ...

Does the built-in media player of SGS2 enables you to resize the video to fit the screen? and if not, is there 3rd party apps for playing avi vids. in fullscreen ?

I'm sorry for not putting my posts in the right forum, cuz i'm a new member and i'm on a rush.

I play 720p vids all the time on my GS2 (and via MHL) and the video usually fits perfectly on the phone or TV.

I'm almost certain that the default media player in SGS2 should be able to allow you to play video in full screen. In any case, other video players like MoboPlayer can fit video to full screen.

I like QQplayer a lot it plays everything I've ever given it, (I've not tried anything HD, max was high bitrate SD the 2x700mb avi xvid movies) and it's free with no internet permissions or ads.

The update to it in the market made it stop working for my inspire for a few months, so I had to use an old version. I just installed new from market today and it works again. Still keeping that old apk just in case. I really like the new screen brightness swipe gesture.

Galaxy S played most formats I through at it, I never felt the need to install another player.

The only issue I can remember was the inability to handle 5.1 encoded MKV files, thankfully the SGS2 video player does not have this problem.

But the best 3rd party players available are Moboplayer, Diceplayer and Rockplayer which are very much required on my Asus Transformer.

Or else could use the converters, such as Handbrake and aneesoft, both works fine for me on videos conversions.

Is there a WMV plug in for Android tablets to play video files directly from web sites? I am not neccesarily looking for a Video Player, but rather a way to play a WMV file directly from a website that uses WMV file format?

You would be suprised what can happen by simply changing the extention to mp4.

I must admit to be confused!! I have an HTC Rezound and would like to add and play the MTS video files created on my Sony HX1000 camera. Should I uase a converter (handbrack, aneesoft) or application on Rezound (qqplayer, moboplayer,diceplayer, mxplayer, rock player)?

Tried MX Video. It will play the MTS files with no problem on Video, however audio stops part way through. Will have to play with settings, butthis is by far the best video player and easiest to use.

Yeah Mx Video Player does the trick, it seems just recently it got popular but i've been using it for almost two years now and havent switched to any other player since.

I want to watch hd movies on my sgs2 and wonder how i can do it. Is it possible to drag and drop lets say a 1080p .mkv file directly to the phone using doubletwist and avoid the transcoding to keep the original format? If so, how? Thanks in advance

I agree with all the people who recommend MoboPlayer. This works great on my Samsung Vibrant Galaxy S.

I just finished reading this entire thread. Here is a summary of the video apps people have suggested above:

* MoboPlayer
* RockPlayer
* Vital Player
* VPlayer Pro
* ARC Media
* QQplayer
* Diceplayer
* MXPlayer

It is a nice list. From the posts in tread I have gleaned that QQPlayer is free, doesn’t have ads, and doesn’t require intrusive permissions.

How about the others?

People that use the others if you could please share if they are (A) Free, (B) Have Ads (especially note those with push ads) and (C) require internet permission?

Thanks.
