Build / Default video player of your Android:
Rule of thumb is that “old” Android devices can only handle h.263, an old format originally designed for video conferencing. Newer Android version should to be capable of h.264 playback.
Media Player App for Android
The Android market, or Google Play now a days, and the Amazon App Store, have plenty of free video play back apps that are capable doing other formats as well! I did find however, that transcoding (converting a video file from one codec to another) with Video Converter Ultiamte is typically quick and results in a surprisingly small file for your Android that can be played without the need for an additional app. It is capable to transcode SD/HD Video files to Android friendly format .mp4 with the best video/audio parameter settings
Some good choices:
- BSPlayer – only at Google Play, free, with ads and supports most subtitle formats and multiple audio tracks
- MXPlayer – only at Google Play, free, with ads and supports most subtitle formats, might require additional codecs
- VLC – only at Google Play, free, no ads, currently in beta (pick Joe VLC for now) and supports subtitles
- MoboPlayer – free, no ads, available at Google Play and Amazon, supports multiple audio tracks and subtitles.
Samsung Galaxy S
File location I used:
- Without SD card inserted, I created a folder “video” in the root, and it picked it up just fine.
- With SD card inserted, I placed the movie in the “movie” folder that resides in the “media” folder, which worked as well.
Go to the “Gallery” app – your movie files should appear right away, possibly in a album called “video”.
If you tap the video, after opening the album, playback should start. If you however installed another video playback app, then you should, the first time at least, get a request what app to use:
Select what to use for Video playback
Asus Nexus 7
File location: I dropped the video file in the “Movies” folder.
Press the “Movie” icon, tap the menu button in the upper right corner and select “Personal videos”. Your movie should be selectable now, tap it and it will play. As with the Samsung Galaxy S, if you installed other media players, Android will ask you which one to use.
Then get your Nexus 7 to play Movies.
Kindle Fire HD
File location: I copied the movie in a folder called “Movies” that resides in the “sdcard” folder. If the folder “Movies” does not exist, simply create it.
Kindle most certainly is not your regular of the mill Android device – and personally I really do not like what Amazon has done with it. For the playback of personal videos you will need to go find the “Personal Videos” app – or an app like MoboPlayer.
Note that the audio of the Kindle Fire HD is very good compared to other tablets.
For the “Personal Videos” app you will have to go to the “Home” screen and type “Personal Videos” in the search field to go find it. Once found, tap it and you can watch your videos. If you have multiple media players installed, Kindle will also ask you which one to use.
Now your moview will be played on Kindle Fire HD.
HTC Glacier / T-Mobile MyTouch 4G
File location: I copied my file on the SD card in a folder that I created “media”, in which I created a sub-folder called “Movies”. Like the Samsung Galaxy S, go to your “gallery” app, and you’ll find you video file there.
