I hope so but I doubt it. Nexus One can't do it.

i really hope sou. That is my main selling point. Galaxy s could perfectly play mkv. and divx. in 720p, even with a subtitles. If nexus s cant i would be very disappointed

Will probably need the whole touchwiz framework along with the corresponding apps (video player, divx etc) for it to work. Haven't tried CM 6.1 Beta 3 for my i9000, but from what I've heard, it doesn't work on there.

I don't see why it wouldnt. The other 9000 galaxy s variants all play it. Why wouldn't this one?

Because its pure Google and previous android dont have the proper vid and audio codecs.

But im confused on how codecs work on this phones because I think the galaxy s line are all hard coded were other none supported devices use crappy software acceleration

I'm really hoping its supports all the great codecs the galaxy S line did but im not getting my hopes up. If not this is going to be my first request from developers ill make a hefty donation to get this avi, xvid .mkv and ac3 working again

those codecs were built into the system of the Galaxy S phones.

The Nexus S will not have any of them so we'll be forced to use other apps.

However, with any luck some good developer may be able to hack them out of touchwiz and add them into a custom stock rom, i wouldn't hold my breath though.

Basically your gonna be using rockplayer, or convert your movies to something othe than divx.

Use RockPlayer or VPlayer! Both are good apps, the latter one is free.

yeah, but with does two apps everything with a little higher quality is more like a slideshow instead of movie. Only thing they can play are low quality divx. Well, we still have converting but then again whats the purpose of that. We are all trying to avoid converting because its boring and takes time. Comon google, bring some codec support
