    I've started using Dice Player after a recommendation from another member on here and its awesome! It can play .mkv files and they seem very smooth and I've had no audio sync issues. My laptop has now become redundent as I no longer need to convert files.


    There's a trial version of it too, so you can try before you buy:

    The member who recommended it said its best to overclock your Xoom and ramp up the CPU speed but it seems ok to me even playing at stock speed.

    Due to DRM most digital copies and iTunes movies will not play on Android devices.

    Has anyone successfully played a 720p MKV file with 6 channel DTS audio using Dice Player? I gave it a try and although it played with audio but it stuttered a lot. Is it stuttering because of DTS audio or 720p video? Another thing I wanted to know is how do I know if Dice Player or any other player for that matter is using HW acceleration or software mode?

    pocketblu is supposed to unless your device is rooted.

    Is anyone else using Dice Player? If so how do you find it with 720p .mkv movies, with in particular DTS audio? I'm currently having problems with a movie encoded this way which produces video freezes in certain parts yet the audio carries on, this is followed by a Force Closure. Has anyone else experienced similar behaviour?


    I guess I will need to use DVD Catalyst to convert the .mkv to .mp4 in order to watch the movie on my Xoom.
