Many people have received their Google Nexus 7 tablets, some users have issues to play HD videos on Google Nexus 7. Because, some users have no idea what is the best video player for the Android 4.1 Nexus 7?

I’m going on a long road trip and I’m planning on downloading a bunch of videos. The question is what is the best video player I can get that will play HD videos on Nexus 7 and the Google Nexus?

From the quoted post, we get the info that the user wanna find the best video player for Nexus 7 for playing HD videos. In consideration of some other users would have the similar confusion, we’d like to give you some tips here. According to our using experience and some users’suggestion, we recommend two optimal video players for Nexus 7 below.

MX Player:
MX Player is a video player for Android that comes with support for almost every video file format. The most important is that MX Player added support for Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. MX Player with the V7 codec pack works pretty good on the N7, just be sure to set it to software render if you want audio on some of the more obscure codecs.
Tip: The player supports videos depending on how the video was encoded (bitrate, ref frames, etc) you're not going to see the smoothest playback for hi10p encoded videos, especially shows with lots of action, and 720p as 1080p will not work.

VLC Media Player:
VLC offers robust support for a wide range of video and audio formats, including OGG, MP2, MP3, MP4, DivX, HD codecs like AES3, Raw Dirac, and even support for playing back zipped files. VLC for Android is still in beta but runs quite fine on Galaxy Nexus.
Disadvantages: Still beta (there's even a "warning" popup on each start), so there might be a few bugs or crashes. But we can say for sure, MP4 format work with it.

Now you can play HD movies on Google Nexus 7 Tablet with MX Player or VLC Media Player. Well, you should know that although the two video players are easy-to-use and powerful, they cannot handle all the video files well especially some 1080p/720p HD movies in MKV, AVI, WMV, AVCHD, TiVo, etc. If you want to watch MKV/AVI/WMV/AVCHD/TiVo movies on Nexus7, how to make it? In that case, you have to get an HD video converter to reformat these files. Nexus 7 Video Converter will be your best choice here, it is a professional Video Converter, which enables you to batch convert video files like AVI, MKV, FLV, TiVo, VOB, MOV, MTS, M2TS, etc to Nexus 7 video format MP4 quickly keep HD quality, I have successfully used it to help me make MKV, TiVo, ect videos playable on my Nexus 7 with HD quality.
