How to enjoy HD MKV videos on Galaxy Note 2
Summary: This tutorial mainly explains you how to put and play all 1080p/720p MKV videos on Samsung Galaxy Note 2 by converting MKV to Galaxy Note MP4 videos.
Samsung Galaxy Note II features a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED screen, a blazing quad-core processor and support for playing HD videos up to 1080p. The 1,280x720-pixel resolution translates into a wide-screen 16:9 aspect ratio rather than the 16:10 aspect ratio of the first Note. That helps it fit right in with more standard graphics and video playback. However, due to the format limitation, sometimes you will find you cannot play MKV files on Galaxy Note 2 or missing audio when enjoying MKV movies on Galaxy Note 2. So how if you want to get these 1080p/720p MKV videos playable on your Galaxy Note 2? Get frustrated? Here you'll find the best solution.
The reason you cannot get MKV videos working on Galaxy Note 2 is simple: the default and downloaded Android Video player on the Note II cannot find a suitable decoder for the codec in the MKV file. To solve these problems, a great method is to convert MKV to Galaxy Note II compatible video formats along with some help from third-party tools. To achieve your goal smoothly, here i will take the all-in-one Pavtube Video Converter as an example to show you how to encode MKV to MP4 for viewing on Galaxy Note 2. The equivalent Mac version is the Galaxy Note 2 Video Converter Mac, which can convert MKV to Galaxy Note 2 on Mac OS X (Include Lion and Mountain Lion). Below is a simple how based on Windows screenshots.
Now Pavtube Video Converter comes with a bundled Streaming Server app (free) that can stream any audio and video files from your PC to Android, Windows and iOS devices, letting you play local video to Android tablets, smartphones, Windows slabs, etc over wireless network.
How to Convert MKV to MP4 for Samsung Galaxy Note 2

P.S. The supported resolution of Galaxy Note 2 goes up to 1080p, though video playback and most apps never break out of 720p. For watching videos on Galaxy Note 2, 720p with 1500~2500kbps is just all right. I found bitrate higher results in big file size, and lower visible quality loss, and vice versa.
