    Default Best Video Player for .MTS format?

    Surprised to find that N7 does not come with native support for .MTS (.M2TS) format used in many video cams.
    Please recommend the best (free) player app that will support this and run well on N7 (2013) under Android 4.4.3 (Kittkat).

    Thanks

    Agreed, MX player is the best video player on the playstore....

    4.4.3? That's not been released yet, has it?

    Also, bear in mind that 4.4.2 broke MX Player and it was weeks before an update version was released. MXP appeared to have a version check built in that was OK with 4.4 but not the minor sub-releases.

    Yes, same here, but just a warning that for a couple of weeks it wasn't after the upgrade 4.4.1 and 4.4.2, so when 4.4.3 is out, will it break again?

    I've taken your advice and installed "MX Player". This app played my VCHD vids just fine on N7.

    Now I'd like to copy some of my DVDs to a flashdrive and play then on N7. Will MX Player read their format or do I need to convert them on my PC to to something else before moving them to flashdrive? Specifics?

    Are they .iso's? Iso's should play fine.

    I do not know whether these are .iso's or not.
    What I'm asking is how to prepare commercial DVD videos so that I can load to my PC and transfer to thumbdrive for playback on N7.

    If you have the physical DVD, your going to have to extract the video file from the dvd. Then you can put it on the thumb drive, connect it to the N7, and play it with MX Player.

    Wondershare Player is the only app (to my knowledge) that can parse the file structure of a DVD's VIDEO_TS folder directly, thereby eliminating the conversion procedure. Of course this still requires you to get the contents of the DVD to the thumb drive first. The downside of this approach is that movies on DVD are huge (4 - 8 GB) and you really need a USB stick with a large storage capacity.

    I just bought my N7 to watch DVDs I own. I tried downloading them to my flashdrive but I am getting an error message saying they are protected. Am I dong something wrong? I even tried downloading movies people have showed as examples on AC.

    Nothing wrong - except that you downloaded protected files. That means they can't be played on devices you haven't bought them for.

    In a nutshell, I use handbrake and anydvd to extract a digital copy from my dvd collection. Handbrake keeps the file size small, while maintaining good quality from the original source. I own the DVD, so I don't see why I shouldn't have the right to convert or make a 1:1 rip even if the disc is copy protected. B.S Player is the app I use for playback. You can get quality 1GB rips (2 hour movie) using handbrake that works perfectly fine for a 7 inch screen.
