Videos on Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1.

I have the problem that Videos won't play on the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1. No difference if they are inline or full-format. Of course they are mp4 with .h264 encoding. I also tried the "handbreak" settings "Android Mid" and "Android High" with no success.

Btw the Videos play well on the old Samsung Galaxy Tab GT-P1000 and on the 7.7.


Has anyone figured this out?


Thanks, Christian

    To get videos to work on all Android devices, create mp4 files with h.264 encoding and baseline profile. If you use a different profile such as Main or Extended, the video might not play on certain Android devices.

    alright, I tried like 100 different things and here's something that works.

    I put my video in After Effects (so I guess you can do the same with media encoder, but at least here I'm SURE it works fine)


    Put your video in a 1280*720 comp
    resize it as you want inside the comp

    then render with these settings (ok it's in French but just transpose in the boxes)
