    I am comparing encodes of MP4 and MKV based video files using Handbrake as the encoder and x264 as the compression type.

    I am using a Samsung Galaxy S and Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 and the results are less than inspiring.

    Using the default Video player on the Tab, MKV's stutter. Anamorphic MKV's also do not display in the correct aspect ratio. Non-Anamorphic videos are larger and display correctly but stutter.

    MP4's have no such problem.

    Using the default Video player on the Galaxy S, both MKV's and MP4s play without stuttering however Anamorphic videos do not display in the correct aspect ratio, but non-anamorphic videos play fine - as expected.

    Dice looks like it has received an update which now actually plays correctly all formats and aspect ratios.

    I'd rather find a solution to get MKV's play correctly in the correct aspect ratio without stuttering using the stock video player on both Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 and Samsung Galaxy S.

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks
    Simon
