Same here with 720p and 1080p MKV. tried several. No sound and choppy. I don't even know what formats work. Video playback needs a lot of work.

you think it'll be a quick kinda thing? i used to have an epic and it tore those mkvs apart with pure awesomeness. i think proper video playback should be necessary for a tablet.

I Read Somwhere that this is Tegra 2 Problem. Somthing about having trouble rendering high profile Videos.

No its software, I was able to play a high quality 720p mkv perfectly on my tablet today; however the audio didn't work. If it can do the video, it can do both. Its a software issue.

Yeah, I was excited for HD Video while on my plane rides almost weekly. Nothing but choppy and no sound. Horrible!!

This is not a software issue. The tegra 2 cannot handle the bandwidth required for h.264 high profile. This is a known limitation.

It is absolutely horrible. I doubt a quick fix but hopefully something will be done. I can say if you do not own a Xoom and high quality playback is important to you, do not buy it until something is done. I refuse to convert everything to something that works. Hell, my Samsung Captivate phone can play these same files flawlessly.

That's correct. Same chip as the GTAB, the Adam, the VEGA etc. Sounds like the same issue with high profile videos. GTAB owners have been dealing with this for months, sorry to burst your bubble.

This chipset limitation is allegedly the reason why Boxee dropped the Tegra 2, last year. Use the excellent "mediainfo" to check your h.264 videos - if it's listed as high profile, it will choke (especially at 1080p).

I am considering purchasing the xoom my local BB has plenty in stock, i travel a lot and watch a lot of videos while traveling

i currently have an Archos 101 which by the way plays everything i throw at it flawlessly, so maybe i'll wait and see if the video playback gets better after some roms begin to appear
