    I have an upcoming cross country plane trip and I'm trying to load some movies on my little V. I am using MoboPlayer. I got one movie to work well, it's an AVI. I have tried a few other movies that are also AVI and they are either choppy, have no sound, or don't play at all. They all work well on my computer. I converted one of the movies that would not play to WMV and it played but it was choppy. Is there a certain file type that works best? Is there another player that is better? The frame rate is 23 or 24 frames per second on all of the movies I have tried.

    Wmv doesn't work well at all. Mx video player plays most any also make sure you get the mx arm6 codec its a desperate app

    Welp I checked the box that says "default using software decoding" in MoboPlayer and everything seems to run swimmingly now.

    Without any radios on it will last playing movies for a long time my kids will pass there's between eachother for hours playing games and still not kill the battery and I have all there radios off. Those are what kills it.

    I'm traveling with my girlfriend and she has an LG Spectrum, so my V is the backup when/if her battery runs out.
