    I have an HD movie that I was hoping to play from my phone, through the HDMI cable to my TV in HD quality.

    The movie is in an .mp4 container and it's H.264 codec, 1280x528, 23.97fps Audio is AAC, 5.1.

    The video doesn't play in the stock player or mvideoplayer.

    In rockplayer, the video plays, but it's too choppy to watch.

    Is it because the resolution is too high or is it the bitrate is too high, maybe?

    The whole reason that I got the HDMI cable was so that I could watch HD quality video on my TV. Other than my cable box, I have no way to get HD video into the TV, so I was hoping that the phone would be the way to do it.

    Am I doing something wrong or am I going to have to re-encode this video to something less than HD?

    If so, what should I re-encode to in order to get the best quality, but still have the phone output it to the TV?

    Should the DX be able to play 720p video?

    What's the problem? Resolution, Bitrate or Audio?
