Batch Convert MKV/AVI/MOV/VOB to Google Pixel 2 XL for Playback
The latest flagship from Google- Pixel 2 XL remains most guys' favourite Android phone on the market right now. However, searching the Android forum, we noticed many guys are troubled in the issues when playing MKV/AVI/VOB/MOV on Google Pixel 2 XL...
"When I play MKV on Pixel 2 XL, the screen remains black but a image is visible if i skip. Any help?"
"Some AVI files are OK on Goolge Pixel 2 XL, but some AVIs are not played well. Anyone else have this Issue? What can I do?"
Actually, there are a few reasons to cause the video playback issue. If your source videos are find in other media players like VLC, the main reason is probably due to the video/audio codec incompatibility. For example, Google Pixel 2 XL doesn't support H.265, DTS, Dolby 5.1/7.1 yet. It may make some video files like AVI, MKV not played properly- no audio or no image. Now, I'll share two easy ways can easily play any video files on Google Pixel 2 XL without any trouble.
Solution 1. Using 3rd-party video player like MX Player
MX Player has long been one of the most popular video player apps. It supported more formats long before other video player apps thought to do so and was also among the first to include things like hardware decoding, hardware accelerated playback, and other such features. It still has all of those things along with gesture controls (including pinch-to-zoom), subtitle support, a kids lock to keep your kids in the app watching their Disney movies, and it supports virtually every codec out there. Like MoboPlayer, it comes with additional plugins to add more functionality if you need them.
Note: Based on some guys' feedback, even installed 3rd-party video player app, not all videos can be played smoothly as we expect.
