It is ideal to watch HD (High Definition) videos with Galaxy Tab S thereon. However, but it’s a pity that Galaxy Tab S can’t play (Xvid/DivX) AVI directly. Galaxy Tab S video format is limited to H.263, H.264(AVC), MPEG4, VC-1, MP43, WMV7, WMV8, VP8.

Step 3: You can edit these videos before conversion by clicking the pencil-like icon on the top. Some of the source video could be interlaced which is not good for playback; in this case you can check “Deinterlacing” in Effect tab to get perfect progressive HD MP4 videos. Trim, crop, edit audio, add srt/ass/ssa subtitles and add special effect are all supported in this edit window.

Step 4: Back to main interface, you can click Settings to free customize video size, bitrate(quality), frame rate, sample rate and other specs.  According to my experience, the file size and video quality is based more on bitrate than resolution which means bitrate higher results in big file size, and lower visible quality loss, and vice versa.

    A lot of the things you point out happens to be astonishingly precise and it makes me ponder why I hadn’t looked at this in this light before. Your article really did turn the light on for me personally as far as this specific issue goes.
