    Will the EVO support these formats in 720p?

    At the moment any answer would be speculation. After the release party on Wednesday, we should have far more concrete details. Speaking generally, MKV is just a "container" which could contain any number of codecs. Xvid is not natively supported within Android, and a request has been submitted to Google:

    Issue 6561 - android - Divx And Xvid Support - Project Hosting on Google Code

    However, a temporary solution would be to install a media player from the Market which supports the codecs you intend to use. I hope this post has been helpful.

    I hope it supports MKV's soon, or rather do some players already support it? With such a large screen, it'd be nice to be able to watch even subtitled stuff.

    I don't think that matters to much since the screen is WVGA (800x480). You will not be able to view it on your phone in 720p format. But I guess you could use the hdmi cord but there are better ways to do it.

    Xvid is an mpeg4 codec but I don't know what will work natively aside from the h.264 codec as far as mpeg4 video. Worst case scenario you have to put together or download a preset for your transcoder of choice and do a little re-coding.

    Better yet don't re-encode it, just put it into a different wrapper. I have programs that can take the H.264 video from an MKV file and put it in a standard mpeg4 file, it then just re-encodes the audio from either Dolby or DTS to AAC as standard Mpeg4 doesn't do either. The video remains untouched so no loss of quality and it is VERY fast.

    I use MKVtools on my Mac, I am sure there is something just like it on Windows and most likely Linux too.
