I have an Acer Iconia A501 tablet running Android Gingerbread 2.3.
I have downloaded video in WMV format from the BBC iPlayer and would like to play it on the tablet. The Inconia tab does not support WMV file formats. I have software on my PC called Format Factory that allows video file conversion. I have tried WMV to AVI, to MP4, to AVI and so on but nothing seems to work.
Any ideas on how to play downloaded WMV video files on a tablet running Android?
MX Video Player (thank you)..... downloaded to my tablet... but....
I must be doing something wrong, MX Video Player installed on my Acer tablet, found updated codec files, installed them too, but on playing a downloaded video in WMV format from the BBC iPlayer all I get is a garbled mess of coloured boxes in the video screen.
What i've done;
Downloaded video in BBC default Windows Media Format from the BBC iPlayer (Sherlock Homes Part 1) onto a pen drive.
Inserted pen drive into tablet - default Acer media player finds my pen drive, finds the video file - but won't play.
I have converted this video file (Sherlock Homes) from WMV to MP4, AVI and even the Android file format from various online downloadable programs.
... all will not playback the video file... all I get is a mess of colour and tiny pixel boxes.
MX Video Player now installed on my tablet. Pen drive inserted, it lists all my video content, but again on playback it's a mess of tiny pixel boxes and flashing colour.
Any help with be appreciated!
