Whoever has one can you check some things.

1. How high of a encoding level for h264 does it support , for comparison Nexus one does Baseline 3.1 anything higher then that will not work , main will stutter/crash and high woun't even start.

2. Can it playback h264 in MKV container ?

3. If yes to MKV is it full support with subs or some partial video only ?

To answer my own question it seems person at samsunggalaxy forum managed to run.

720p mkv Format profile : High@L3.1 with CABAC on.

Effectively makes Galaxy very awesome Video player

I wonder how well it does with re-encoded 800x4xx sized files. Also native AVI and AC3 support ftw!
Probably gonna watch more movies on my phone than on my projector.

720p mkv plays great.

So does re-encoded video files...i migrated all my HD2 encoded files over without a hitch.

the only sad part is that it doesn't have mini hdmi output like the EVO 4g.
bUt I'm still getting it anyway , since I see that ass an add on for when you go a friend house and want to play a movie you have in the phone on the tv.

yes.. the Galaxy S can play 720P MKVs flawlessly.. but it cannot read the embedded subs. I'm searching for an application that can play MKVs with subs..

I posted this at the Themes and Apps section but no one replied.

UPDATE 2:
mVideoplayer v2.2.0 now support embedded subs from MKVs (only for SGS)

UPDATE 1:

mVideoplayer v1.6.7 above suports .ass (Sub Station Alpha) subtitles. Download mVideoplayer in the Android Market.

thanks to h4m74ro for pointing that out.

updated the instructions... you can find the original post here

Apps to Download to your PC
1) MKVExtractGUI
2) MKVtoolnx
-this is needed by MKVExtractGUI, copy the MKVExtractGUI into the installed directory of MKVToolnix

Apps for your Phone
1) mVideoplayer - download in Android Market

Instructions:
1) Extract the subtitles using MKVExtractGUI, the extracted subs will be in .ass format. This will just take a few seconds to complete.
2) Rename the .ass subtitles exactly as the video file name except the extension (.ass).
3) Copy the MKV file and .ass subtitle to your phone and play using mVideoPlayer..

enjoy... hope this can help someone..

if anyone knows a better solution. please post it here!

thanks

Would anyone please be so kind to test this workaround with the following file?

http://www.megaupload.com/?d=NFU871QV

it's from www.yibis.com and uses Soft-Subs. Unfortunately they now use variable framerate, so I'm not sure if the video will play at all. Thanks!
