    Default AVI Playback

    Hi,

    I have a few AVI files which are films l would like to play on my Playbook. I have tried Autoplay Videos( which I couldn't get to work at all) and also QM Player which did work, but its clunky and my AVI film seems to have vanished from my Playbook without me deleting it??

    The cover pic for the film appeared in the included movie player on the Playbook but upon opening the file if just get a blank screen and nothing more. I've read about various issues with AVI formats on the Playbook with regards to playback, what formats work well without issue( Mov? Mpeg? Etc)

    Any other apps I should look at instead?

    Mike.

    Autoplay only plays what the Playbook can natively play.

    Either convert the videos or buy KalemSoft Media Player which hasn't let me down yet.

    I converted my AVI files to MP4 and they work fine.

    Mp4 is the way to go for sure ! Most converters are free anyway, just takes a extra bit of time before you can watch.

    Freemake video converter works great too, even has a playbook video convert option. But yes Kalemsoft works fine too.

    I agree with the other two people, buy KalemSoft Media Player.
    It will play almost any format, resumes playback where you left off and has many other features.

    The KalemSoft developer is very active on this site and takes suggestions seriously. Read the KalemSoft thread in this forum.
