I dunno about mkv, but I've played 1080 mp4 with no issues. Used MX Player.

As long as you use the ffmpeg plugin for your video player... diceplayer, Mxplayer, the archos player... the nexus 7 will play all videos, even 1080p, with HWA using very little CPU. Usually staying in the LP core.

No problem with 1080 using H/W decoding but I loose audio sync with S/W decoding.

If its encoded in Hi10 then no, it will play in software mode and drop frames. This isn't the devices fault, the available media players and codecs just don't support it yet. otherwise it runs other encoded 720/1080p just fine and smoothly.

I never bother with 1080p since the screen only displays up to 720p. I change all my mkv files into mp4 and play them inthe stock video player without issue though. Play perfectly smooth. Watch at least 2-3 movies a week. If i'm lazy though i have MXplayer installed for when i don't want to change it into an mp4 format. Sometimes need to use software decoding to play certain files well. But it always plays them no matter what without a problem!

Did you set the hardware decoder to HW+? I because with only HW you can have slow playback.

i would also like to state.
This is a 720p screen, and i have no issues playing 720p video. The screen will not display 1080p resolution, so 1080p video is worthless on the device.

They may work but they are down-scaled versions of 1080p, to 720p.

There is no purpose for 1080p video on this device. Also, the screen is too small to really notice the clarity of a 1080p resolution anyways at 7". 720p looks and plays wonderfully on this device!! 1080p video >.> if you have a codec, it will play at 720p. Dont waste yo space!!!
