FAQ: Get a best video format for Android smartphones


Do you have encountered or seen this problem: How to put and play a wide variety of video to a Android smartphone(like Google Nexus 4, HTC One, Nokia Lumia 920, Galaxy S3, S4 and even the latest of the Galaxy Mega 5.8 or 6.3 smartphones)? How to get a best video format for Android phone? How to convert a video to Android samrtphone friendly format with best Android Video Converter?

First, we can see some questions of Android users:

Question 1: “Recently I get a new Samsung Galaxy S4, and want to play my favorite MKV videos on it. But find that the MKV format is not supported by Android phones. If there is any program can help me to resolve the problem?”

Question 2: Anyone know of an app that can play AVI/DIVX files? Something like VLC on the iPhone 5.

Question 3: Hey, So I recently got the Lumia 920, Is there any good applications to recommend that plays AVI or MKV video files??

Question 4: Hard to believe that a Android smartphone of this quality and price range can’t play AVI movies. Very disappointed about this. I’m also finding this table to be not very user-friendly. The UI is not intuitive at all and not easy to use. Things that you need are there, but often hidden where you wouldn’t expect them to be. Does anyone else have the same concerns, about the AVI and the UI?

Question 5: I just got an Android smartphone that is Google Nexus 4, while when i tried to transfer and play WMV, FLV files on my phone, i find my android phone can not support it, so is there any solution to solve it?

. . . . . .

Based on the above issues can be found more and more people tend to watch videos & movies on their smartphones as big screen and Android OS spread all over the world. However, smartphones are not like HD media players, which play almost everything you throw at them. Though Android is developed by the Open Handset Alliance, this smartphone platform only supports H.263, H.264 AVC, MPEG-4 SP and VP8 video format. Hence it is impossible to play AVI, Divx, MKV, MPG, FLV, F4V, Tivo, WMV, M2TS, TS, VOB videos etc. on Android smartphones.


Due to it’s very easy to get MKV, MOV, AVI, MTS, WMV etc. videos via the internet. So maybe you’ve collected a lot of home movies on Windows & Mac like me. I have a great experience on my new Galaxy S3 smartphone. I watch my MKV collection on the smart Android phone. But note that videos or movies in MKV format are limited to be played on mobile phones which run Android system. That’s the reason why some successfully put MKV files into Android phones but they fails to play. You have to convert and compress these HD videos (especially 1080p HD contents) to make sure they play properly on your smartphone. Pavtube Android Video Converter is such kind of converting tool that features format templates for all smartphones(including Android, iOS and Windows 8 phones).

Steps: How to convert MKV, AVI, VOB, Tivo, MPG, MTS, M2TS, TS, WMV, FLV/F4V videos to Android Smartphone friendly format?

Step 1: Add video files to your Android phone.

Install and launch Best Android Video Converter. Click “Add Video” to load video source.

Step 2. Select output video format for converting video to Android smartphones.

To convert any videos for Android phones, select an Android friendly format, e.g. H.264 .mp4 for conversion. There are optimized format for Galaxy S3, Galaxy Note 2, Google Nexus 4, etc. Basically the “Common Video -> H.264 Video(*.mp4)” is an universal format for Android smartphones or tablets.

Tips: If you like, you can click “Settings” to change the video encoder, resolution, frame rate, etc. as you wish. According to my experience, for watching videos on an Android phone or tablet, 720p with 1500~2500kbps (depends on what device you use) is just all right.

  • Video Size: choose “original” if you’d like to keep the original video resolution; type in 1280*720 if you’d like to watch videos on Android smarphones in full-screen.
  • Bitrate: High bitrate = High video quality= Big file size= Long conversion time. Set higher bitrate for better quality, and lower bitrate for smaller fie size.
  • Audio channels: Stereo is just fine for Android handsets, although 5.1 channels is available, 2 channels is recommended.

Step 3. Start the videos to Android Smartphones covnersion.

When you are satisfied with all the settings, you can click “Convert” to start encoding MKV, AVI, Tivo, MWV, MPG, Divx, VOB, MTS, TS, FLV, F4V videos to Android Smartphone with the best format for yourself.

(Note: Almost every Android device has this 4GB limitation, in other word, you cann’t successfully move your movies or videos to Android phones/tablets for sure. For eBooks of course that’s no problem. But for multimedia it’s a huge disadvantage to Galaxy S3 or Nexus 4 for example. 720p and 1080p movies today can be up to 10GB, and that’s definitely will not transfer to the MircroSd card. The solution refer to How to get over 4GB file size limitation for Android devices)

After conversion, you can click “Open” to locate the converted MP4 video files and just transfer video to your Android phone via USB connection and watch them freely!
