    Hi,

    Just switched from my iPhone 5 to a note 2 today. Is there a way to play mkv back ups without converting them? Just ordered a 64g memory card also.

    Thanks

    How would you transfer large mkv files (4gb +) over to your memory card?

    Thanks

    Get mxplayer from the play store, it plays mkv files and many others on the android platform.

    I would try "MX Player" and "BS Player Free". Both are free and both work great, just a matter of which one you would prefer.

    SDXC cards do not have a file size limit.

    Format your memory card In fat 32 format might help

    Actually tried some last night dumped about 6 gigs of stuff on the phone, opened the stock video player and it plays them all!

    Was suprised, no converting or anything, 720p stuff looks great on it.

    Cool that it works though I would say you still might want to try mxplayer. It supports everthing and has tons of cool features.

    Formatting to FAT32 will impose the 4gb file size limit.

    MX Player and BS Player don't support the "air view" preview though w/the s-pen though (right?)... So far the stock player works fine for the files I've been using and using the s-pen on it has been great!

    I wonder when 3rd parties will start putting in s-pen support... if ever

    dumping 6gb of stuff is fine but what about 1 large file?

    So is there a solution to this issue?

    The BS Player works very well. It can play MKV files with the Dolby sound embedded where other players can't.

    Formatting to NTFS. Heck even my blackberry will see large files over 4gb.
