Following this article, you can enjoy any Videos(MKV, MPG, VOB, FLV, MTS, M2TS, MOD, TiVo, etc)on Microsoft Surface RT Windows 8 RT tablet smoothly.

Microsoft’s Surface tablets are one of the most important technology milestones of the year. Yes, the Surface RT is Microsoft’s first computing device. This is a 10.6″ tablet with a 1366 x 768 Gorilla Glass 2 IPS touchscreen. It runs on the quad core NVidia Tegra 3 T30, just like some popular 10.1″ Android tablets and it has 2 gigs of RAM and 32 or 64 gigs of flash storage. The Surface RT has 1 USB 2.0 port, micro HDMI and a 3.5mm audio jack. It has dual band WiFi 802.11b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0 and front/rear 720p cameras. The optional touch cover is 3mm thin and doubles as a display cover. The tablet runs Windows 8 apps from the app store but not Windows 7 3rd party applications like Adobe Creative Suite or Corel Paint. It has the core Windows 7 apps like MS Paint, calculator and administrative tools.

And in terms of battery life, Microsoft said Surface charging time will be able to work eight hours, I just wanna to say that Microsoft is definitely modest. I have made a test, Morning to the Surface RT charged electricity, and then all day to play videos, edit files, browser the web pages, play games, send e-mail, on Twitter, and so on and so on, well untill to the night it all there power remaining , or even the next day are also used. Surface is definitely not at the notebook level, I can sayit is at the iPad level. Surface RT gave me the same feeling as the iPad.

Of course, there is limited support for video playback on the device, after all, many codecs and players just aren’t available for RT devices, if you wanna play any 720p HD or even full HD 1080p videos MKV, MPG, VOB, FLV, MTS, M2TS, MOD, TiVo, etc on Microsoft Surface RT Tablet, perhaps you need to reformat these files for Surface RT first. If you are a movie fan and thinking about ordering an Surface RT, you may need a Video to Microsoft Surface RT Converter to help you transcode your favorite movies to Surface Windows RT for watching in the future.
