Play *.wmv on an android tablet

Unread postby Sniper 2 » 31 Aug 11, 9:22 pm

I've looked online to see what program will run a wmv file on an android tablet but am at a loss.

I have tried the following programs :

Rockplayer
VPlayer
Act 1
MoboPlayer
VLC direct Pro
DriodLive Player
VLC remote
vlcmote


I can't seem to find a vlc media player for android, their website says " VLC for Android is NOT ready YET. Please, stop asking until it is released"

Other websites indicate it is still 1 - 2 months away from completion. Anyone know of anoher android app that will play *.wmv files.

I'd prefer not to have to convert all my files as a 13mb file changes to a 450mb file.

my android phone plays mkv files. I'm not sure about wmv files, but I imagine if it plays mkv it players wmv.

you might have to just use handbrake. http://handbrake.fr/ free, easy to use, batch conversions.

also, have you tried copying files to the device in windows 7 via windows explorer? there is an inbuilt transcoder if it knows the device can't play the file, and is able to transcode it.

winamp only plays music from the looks of it. I installed it and it would not detect anything other than music files.

From what I can see about handbrake there is no download as an .apk file that android uses to install the program onto the tablet, I may be wrong.

Use handbrake on your PC to convert your wmv to mkv.

Once converted use the new files on your Andriod device.

Yeah it got 'awakened' by a bot I think.. I was going to agree with ginji as that (BSplayer) is what i use as well.

You didn't, it was spammed, and i removed the offending post ;)

Still an good topic to cover though.

I always recommend re-encoding files so they can be decoded by the hardware instead of software mode, it's easier on the battery.
