How to transfer 1080P MKV HD movies to Google Nexus S for playback?

For the last few days we've been using the Google Nexus S, manufactured by Samsung, with the new Android 2.3 "Gingerbread" operating system. This is a phone that was designed with direct input from the Google Android team. And like its predecessor, the Nexus One, which was released in January 2010, it has a "clean" install of Android. That means there is no additional software layer from third party OEMs or carriers to interfere with the user experience. Like the Nexus One, this will become the reference phone for this generation of Android.

The media experience on the Android 2.3 platform is unfortunately not that good natively - incompatibility with many file types and basic operation mar the experience. For movies, Video Player is the one we reach for instantly whenever we pick up an Android phone. The powerful player has a high level of file compatibility, multiple bookmark options and even a slider for brightness management.

Detailed specs:

HD(720p@30fps) video playing, Video recording D1 (720x480)@30fps, mpeg4, H.264, H.263


MKV is the most popular HD movie format for playback now. And the 1080P Blu-ray movies downloaded from internet are also in mkv format. So we need to find a way to convert 1080P MKV movies to Nexus S supported video formats for playback on it.

Then, how to convert 1080P MKV movies for Google Nexus S?

Free download: MKV to Nexus S Converter which is a great video converter to convert mkv to other video formats without quality.

First-Class SWF Converter for Google Nexus One,Convert SWF to Nexus One Speaking of Google Nexus One, we will immediately say it is Google's flagship smartphone manufactured by Taiwan's HTC Corporation. It became available on January 5, 2010 and uses the Android open source mobile operating system. As a multimedia-enabled smartphone, Nexus One is capable of playing videos encoded by H.263 (encode and decode), MPEG-4 SP (encode and decode), H.264 AVC (decode), audio formats including AAC, MP3, MIDI and WAV. Personally, I bought a brand-new Nexus One when it initially launched on the mobile market, because of its 3.7 inch wide touchscreen, 5 megapixel camera and its long battery life. I am a movie fans and I always pay much attention to the newly-released movies such as Avatar, Transformers 3, District 9, and etc. So I often need a Blu-ray Ripper or Video Converter to convert these movies to my Nexus One for enjoying when traveling. Recently, I got a bunch of SWF files from my boss and wanna merge and convert these files to my Nexus One for playback. By searching the keywords "SWF to Android Converter" through Google, I got a fabulous SWF to Nexus One Converter. With it, I import SWF to Google Nexus One (.mp4) with success. The Detailed Tutorial I use is as below: To begin with, free download Aunsoft SWF Converter and install it on your PC. Second, import SWF files to this program and specify the output format workable to Nexus One. Expand the drop-down menu of Profile, locate and choose Android -> Google Nexus One MPEG-4 (.mp4). By the way, you may notice the button "Settings", this button is used to set the video and audio parameters, including Codec, Bitrate, Frame rate and Channels. As Nexus One can play movies up to 800x480 pixels, under this option, you can set video codec to mpeg4 or xvid. You can set frame size to 800x480, 480 x320 and 720 x480. Next, if you want to join SWF files into one, you are allowed to check the box "Merge into One to file" on the main interface. Fourth, specify the destination folder by using "Export To" as you wish. Last, after the settings above are done, it is time to start the SWF conversion to Nexus One for your entertainment yourself or with your families.
