    Hello
    I've been trying several video players, to reproduce VMW files, Windows Media Video files in my SAMSUNG GALAXY ACE with Android 2.2

    All players sucks!!! the video is very very slow and I cannot play well the files.

    This happen only with MVW files.
    Playing MP4 or AVI... is fine, the files reproduce ok.
    But when I try to play WMV files... is like if theeeey wweeereeee innnnnn sloooooooow moooooooooooootiooooooon

    I've tried MOBO, QQPlayer and the same.

    Can you recommend me a good video player to play my VMW files in my SAMSUNG?

    The kind of video file I am trying to play is little:
    150 MB
    VMW
    640 x 480

    So it's not a very big file in Full HD and for that reason the phone is playing it slow... it is a picture of standard size...

    Cheers

    Maybe the phone hasn't the performance for .wmv ?

    MoboPlayer run fine with .wmv on my HTC Sensation.
    But on my HTC Desire HD sometimes it stucks a little.

    You could try arcMedia player.

    Even worst...
    This player, arcMedia Player don't reproduce the VMW files at all...

    I think the only solution will be VLC Media Player when they release it... if finally they do that, I guess so...

    Anyway, if any of you have a player that works fine in SAMSUNG Galaxy ACE for WMV, I'd love you tell me which one it's working

    The performance is 800 Mhz, the processor... so... I think it is okay

    I dont think the phone can take it. Its not only the processor we have to worry about but the GPU as well.

    Try Rockplayer, but I dont guarantee anything.

    Don't work either... extremely slow...

    AVI files are played perfectly
    why MWV cannot be played ok?

    I don't understand that...

    The processor is a MSM7227 and the GPU is an Adreno 200It's enough to play AVI but not WMV ??

    As I know, with AVI video players can use the phones hardware video decoding.
    With WMV they have to use software video decoding, which needs processor power.

    Don't talk more, then it is completely clear. And you are right because the phone asked me to use the software decoding and not the hardware decoding. Seems to be WMV is not a format for tablets or cell phones unless they have a supercore processor. A dual processor for example. I understand. :)

    Thanks although there is no solution for the WMV files I guess.

    I'm just wondering why WMV is not supported by hardware in cell phones and AVI yes?
