    Video Codecs

    Hello there,

    I have transferred 2-3 movies from my PC to my new Xoom, tried to watch them and I found out that this wasn't feasible as I was getting an error "Cannot play video, Sorry, this video cannot be played'.

    I guess this has to do with the video codecs as the video is not corrupted since I can play it on my PC.

    Is there any kind of codecs package (just like the k-lite codecs for PC) which can help me get rid of this problem? It's not easy and practically very inconvenient to convert every movie i want to transfer to the xoom into a format that android understands.

    Thank you for your help!

    George

    You need a different movie player...

    Try to get MoboPlayer or MX video player both free. Once installed it will tell you that you need codecs and guide you to the correct one to download.
    I use either of the players above and they work for 99% of the videos i have. (Divx / Xvid etc..)

    MX Player is good.

    I use MX mostly also.. but there are the odd occasions when i get audio out of sync when i know from playing on my PC that the audio is in sync.

    Then i switch to moboplayer which seems to solve the audio problem. Haven't investigated the actual audio codec that causes the problem mainly cause switching to the other player works well.. Hence i keep both on my Xoom.. but you may never have that issue depending on the encoding of your movies...

    Well as we spoke about it today... tonight i saw an update for MX Player and in the notes it says "solved audio sync problem" amongst other things and when you install it you get a notice and it takes you to a codec update... looks like this just got a whole lot better..

    I found a movie which unfortunately wont play on mx or any other player that i have downloaded. Its an .avi file but I suppose this doesn't say much on its encoding, right? I was always wondering, is there any kind of meta information on those videos that can reveal which codec they need to render? In other words is there any kind of a diagnostic tool which can give info on a video encoding? Of course this doesn't need to be an android app, a windows installation would also be ok for a diagnosis.

    Thank you.
