Default Can .mkv movies with DTS sound track be played on the Tab 7.7 ?

I have tried the default video player but it cannot play .mkv movies with DTS sound track.

I can see the video part of the movie but so sound can be heard.

Is there a solution to this or do I have to convert my .mkv movies?


Edit: Actually DicePlayer and MX Player can play .mkv movies with DTS sound track.

Shouldn't this be in the Q&A section?

Dice Player does this too (and is a better player for the Tab 7.7 overall with better hardware decoding, not much in it though so pick whichever).

On my Note and Galaxy Nexus some files don't play smoothly with mx player (they are very watchable, just not perfect like with Dice Player).

You can also try BSPlayer.
I found this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1vDN-RilC1k

It can also play my AVCHD camera files. (.mts)

One BIG problem is that the player can't play from my ntfs formatted sdxc card.
(Dice+ Mx works)

I have all three installed, but I usually use Dice.

I am having mixed results on my 7.7 - vids with DTS stored on the SD card play nicely when using MX player when the audio stream is set to SW.

However, when the same videos are accessed over the network they are choppy if they play at all. Anyone else experiencing this? I've done some network analysis and the wifi isn't being maxed out or anything.

Maybe I'll start a new thread on this.

@sladey,
There is another thread "wifi connections" that documents some slow streaming prob.
I had to experiment with wifi-g to wifi-n (both 2.4 & 5.0 ghz) to get a steady stream.

No fixed answer at moment as all above settings still hv some intermittent stutter.

Try wifi-g and slowly move up speed.

Cheers
