Default A question regarding HD Movies

Hi there guys,

I just downloaded this .mkv extension movie from the net. I want to view it on my Note 3. Do I need to convert the file? If yes, then why? I mean, what is the problem if I transfer the 2.2 Gb file to the memory of my phone as it is.

The bit rate is something around 3000kbps I think. Isn't that normal? Do I really need to convert it? And if I do will there be any loss in quality?

Thanks for the help guys.

This. You may want to use HardWare+ or SoftWare decoding since .mkv's will likely be slightly out of sync with regular HardWare decoding.

.MKV is nice compression, but tough on battery life :/ I get about 16 hours of video with HW decoding, 12 hours with HW+ and only 10 with SW.
