    Xoom Wifi and HD Video

    Hello all, hope I've posted this in the right place.

    I recently bought an original Xoom Wifi partly as I'm going on a few holidays and thought it would be great to watch videos on.

    My wife and I will be away from the kids on mothers day so I've recorded a surprise message (in HD). I'm getting everything ready to go away and..

    Tonight I've been trying various HD videos and cant get them to play properly.
    I'm using MX Player with the appropriate Codec installed (also tried mobo player)
    All play flawlessly on my Galaxy S2

    Pixar animated film - 720p mkv - stutters and sound out of sync
    Bad Luitenant film - 720p mp4 - crashes Xoom
    Game of Thrones episode - video seems to play ok, but sound out of sync / slow

    Surprise message:
    File 1 - WMV file 720p - very slow, sound not in sync
    tried uploading to Youtube and then DLing in mp4 (only 27MB) and again, sound very slow and out of sync.

    Everything plays just fine on my Galaxy S2 using the same apps (in fact all video players)

    Is there a problem with the Xoom and HD video???
    If so I'll be pretty dissapointed as this is the main reason I bought it!
    TIA, RV

    to play mkv, i would suggest DicePlayer. i use it all the time to watch 720p mkv. and there are no issues or stuttering. for the larger blu rays, i convert them using dvdcatalyst, there is a xoom preset. and using mxvideoplayer, they play flawleslly.

    also, make sure you are running ICS.

    Thanks for the quick responses!
    Does running ICS actually make a difference? I'm on UK HC and had been debating turning my Xoom into a US version for the ICS update or just waiting for the Euro one.
    I'll try diceplayer
    Are there known probs with the Xoom and HD Video?? Like I say, my Galaxy S2 never has a problem with anything.

    I've actually just watched a .mkv video on my Xoom and it stuttered and the audio was out of sync, personally I'd convert it to another format.
