    (mpeg, avi, mkv, xvid, etc are not formats they are containers. AAC, H264, mpeg2, AC3, are codecs.)

    Mobo Player is free and plays just about anything. Of course, if the codec, res, bitrate, container, or settings are not compatible with the native hardware, it will have to use software decoding, which will GREATLY reduce the battery life and could cause stuttering (especially at higher bitrates).

    Make sure in MX Player you change play around with S/W and H/W Decoding for any given video, it makes a difference.

    Mobo ended up working
    Dice player wouldn't work it
    Mobo seems to have some nice features
