    exactly the video I wanted to see.
    I knew Galaxy Nexus wouldn't perform as well as GSII on video playing....
    I love to watch 1080 video flawlessly on G-nex since the big red is my only choice.
    Can you check 1080p video with mx player or even with dice player?

    Thank You !

    Wasn't this pretty much expected?

    I'll be running the Nexus I just go through my usual test panel of videos, will compare to the Note and SGSII (but it will not fare as well, obviously).

    QQPlayer is not HW accelerated from what I can tell so I would suggest using DicePlayer as it allows my SGS to play 720p MKV files fine. This is quoted from DicePlayer:
    Samsung Galaxy S and variants : 720p H.264 High@5.1

    The screen is only 720p so why load a 1080p video ? I know most of my content is all in 720p and not 1080p but I suppose if you were the other way around this could be a problem. But I would like to see Gnex with DicePlayer as the GPU is about double the SGS.

    Only purpose is driving the 1080p to an HDMI output (a flat screen TV).

    Some issue with Dice Player here, keeps closing after a few seconds (initially worked fine, but failed to play many files in my test batch).

    Kind of expected really, Galaxy S series always fair very well when it comes to video.

    Best stock video players of any android phones and the best hardware, on other phones you end up messing around with other video players and even then it's oftern not as good.

    My old SGS played MKV files just fine with the stock player, only issue I remember was with 5.1 audio.
