The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1's beautiful 1,280x800-pixel screen is great for watching movies. The Honeycomb tablet supports WMV9, WMV7, WMV8, H.264, MPEG4, Xvid, DivX, H.263, and VP8 video codecs.

It can be encoded by different codecs, some of the codecs may not compatible with Galaxy Tab, so you'll have problems when playing these AVI videos on your Galaxy Tab, even with some popular Android video player like MX player, Mobo, etc. If you're confused about this and have no idea, here you will find the best solution.

As far as I know, to watch those uncompatible AVI files on Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 successfully, the best solution is to encode/re-encode AVI to Galaxy Tab supported video formats. Here is how:

In the first place, free download Brorsoft Video Converter app. Overall, the program can be used as an all-in-one video conversion app for for Galaxy Tablets. With it, you can easily transcode AVI to MP4 videos for Galaxy Tab 2 with high quality and fast encoding speed.

If you like, you can click "Settings" to change the video encoder, resolution, frame rate, etc. as you wish.
