MKV converter - Put 1080p MKV videos on Galaxy Tab for playback in HD quality

According to the official introduction, Galaxy Tab 2 is able to play 720p,1080p movies. But, some reviews said that, the tablet's dual-core CPU has trouble running large 1080p movies smoothly. Actually, Galaxy Tab 2 only supports limited video formats, you may refer to the list:


Galaxy Tab Supported Format

WMV, MP4, Flash Video FLV, DivX, XviD, MPEG-4. H.263, H.264 video files
AAC/MP3/WAV music files

As noted, the Galaxy Tab can't play 1080p MKV videos. Some friends have problems to play MKV movies on their new Galaxy Tab. But you can use a good MKV file Converter to help you convert 1080p MKV movies to MP4 video format compatible for Galaxy Tab in high quality. Pavtube Video Converter is such a good one, which supports converting any 1080p HD video to H.264 MP4 for Galaxy Tab at up to 6x faster speed based on its CUDA and ATI Stream (AMD APP) acceleration technologies. (Tip: If you are Mac users, you can use the powerful Mac MKV to MP4 Converter here.)

The step-by-step guide as below:
Step 1: Run Pavtube Video Converter as the fastest MKV Converter, and then add your 1080p MKV movie files into it.


Step 2: Choose the best video format for Galaxy Tab
Click on "Format < Samsung < Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 (*.mp4)" to set the best video format for Galaxy Tab 10.1 with high quality in perfect sync of video/audio.


For Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 users, please choose " Samsung Galaxy Tab H.264 ( *.mp4) "

Step 3: Convert 1080p MKV movie to MP4 for Galaxy Tab by clicking on "Convert" on the main interface of the MKV to Galaxy Tab Converter.

(1) Click on "Settings" to adjust bitrate, frame rate, codec, etc to get the video quality you like.
(2) Check "Merge into one file" to join/combine several 1080p MKV video clips into only one.

A few things to keep in mind when converting 1080p MKV movie files to Galaxy Tab:
1) The Galaxy Tab doesn't like video file sizes over 2GB (The settings recommended in Step 2 should help you insure that the file size is kept under 2GB. Or, you can click on "Settings" to adjust profile settings such as bitrate, frame rate, codec, etc to help you make it. )
2) Your converted video will only be as good as your source video.

That's all! Hopefully the guide on how to watch 1080p MKV movies on Galaxy Tab will be of great help!
