Best Android Video Converter-Transfer 1080p/720p Video to Android Tablet & Phone

Google's Android mobile OS is considered one of the best alternatives to Apple's iOS when it comes to tablets computers and smartphones. More and more people are getting fond of Android OS to watch video and movies on their tablets including Asus Infinity TF700, Google Nexus 7, Transformer Prime,  Samsung Galaxy Note 2, Galaxy Tab 2and smartphones like Samsung Galaxy S3, Galaxy Mega 5.8 and 6.3, Galaxy S4, HTC One, Google Nexus 4, HTC One Xand more.

We're not really surprised, and have seen this trend with our client, colleagues, friends and family members because of its open-source nature and powerful system equipments. Nowadays, it's common to have loads of 1080p/720p HD videos and movies stored on your HDD or home server. These 1080p/720p video materials always come from Blu-ray backups, camera footage, TiVo recordings, downloaded movie torrents, etc. Due to format restrictions, Android-based devices do not have native support for all these videos in different file types. 

Read Supported Video Formats for Android

"Dear all, 
Can you please suggest what is the best (or good) video Converter tool to convert videos/movies in nexus 7 format for loading in Nexus 7 tablet? 
I tried searching a few..all of them look good but before buying, I would appreciate your feedback to make the best buy. Thanks"

If you attempt to watch videos in your Android device unsupported file format, you need to do format conversion previously. The following guide demonstrates how to convert 1080p/720p HD Videos and Movies to Android Tablets or Phones on Windows or Mac.

The above mentioned two programs have the same operation procedure, but running on different platforms. Here we run Pavtube Video to Android Converter Windows Version to guide you through how to transcode 1080p/720p Full HD movies to Android devices for playback.

How to put any 1080p/720p video to Android Tablet or Phone?

Step 1: Start up Pavtube 1080p/720p video to Android Converter, then click "Add video" or "Add from folder" tab to load your 1080p/720p source files.

Step 2: Click format menu to choose output format for playing any videos on your Android tablet or smartphone.

Most Android devices support below video and audio formats:

Video Codec: H.264
If there're universal codecs for Android devices, they must be H.264, MPEG-4 and H.263. Among them, H.264 is regarded as the most advanced codec and is widely used accepted.

Audio Codec: AAC/MP3
Every smartphone plays AAC and MP3 audio, but I'll suggest you choose AAC for better audio quality.

Video Format: MP4
MP4 is recommended because it is a most widely accepted video format for portable devices. Indeed, MKV and AVI video are OK for most Android tablets and phones, but MP4 can not only be transferred to Android handsets, but also be put onto iPad, iPod Touch, PSP and over majority of portable media players.

Pavtube software comes with optimal format presets for Android devices developed by different brands, such as ASUS, HTC, Samsung, Motorola, Google, Amazon and more, so that you can select a target format for your Android device directly in an easy way.

Step 3: Click "Convert" button to start converting 1080p/720p video to MP4 for transferring to Android tablet or phone. When finished, click "Open" button to get the generated video files for playing with your Android tablets or phones.  

Additional Tips

Android tablets only recognize SD cards formatted in FAT 32, this limits a single file size less than 4GB. If you worry about getting a big video file larger than 4GB, you can use split feature in Pavtube software to split a large 1080p/720p file into multiple chunks under 4GB. Learn to split a large video file into several small files under 4GB for Android device.

Google Updates Platform Distribution Numbers Gingerbread Down To 38.5%, Jelly Bean Up To 28.4%

As usual Google has updated monthly platform distribution numbers for Android in its developer dashboard. The numbers, based on devices accessing the Play Store over the last 14 days (ending May 1st), tell developers which versions of Android are most prevalent, and which are on the decline.

This month, as last month, we're seeing a decline in Gingerbread and a rise in Jelly Bean. Gingerbread has dropped from 39.8% to 38.5%, a 1.3% drop for those keeping tally at home. Jelly Bean, meanwhile, has seen a slightly more substantial shift, rising 3.4% from 25% to 28.4%.

Elsewhere, the ebb and flow of version numbers is more or less expected. clair and Donut are grasping for dear life, sitting still at 1.7% and 0.1% respectively, Froyo has dropped a mere 0.3%, and Honeycomb has dropped another 0.1%. Ice Cream Sandwich, likewise, is down 1.8% to 27.5%. To see the numbers (and other useful info) hit the link below.

Transfer Digital Copy and iTunes to Archos 80 G9 Android Tablet

"Hello, Its been a while since I have used certain program convert iTunes and Digital Copy movies to my Archos 80 G9 Tablet... but now after I convert I'm having a problem where the audio is off. you can see lips moving before anyone is talking. its really annoying and impossible to watch. is there anything I can do to fix this?"
As far as I know, Digital Copy and iTunes movies have DRM copy protection. The DRM protection prevents you from playing legally purchased videos and movies on non-Apple media players. So to watch Digital Copy & iTunes movies on your Archos 80 G9 Tablet, you need to remove the DRM protection first. I found a powerful Digital Copy/iTunes to Archos 80 G9 Converter named Pavtube Chewtune which shows good performance. The following contents will share top DRM removal program and offers some tips about how to strip DRM on Digital Copy and iTunes and convert them to MP4 for transferring to Archos 80 G9 Tablet playback freely.

Before conversion you need do some preparations for Digital Copy and iTunes conversion:

1. For Digital copy movie conversion, first of all, transfer Digital Copy to computer in Windows Media (.wmv) or iTunes video format (.m4v). 

2. For iTunes movie conversion, set iTunes not to remember position:
  • Launch iTunes, and switch to "Movies" under LIBRARY.
  • Select the videos you would like to convert, right click on them, and select "Get Info".
  • Switch to "Options" tab, find "Remember position" and select "No" from its drop-down list. Click "OK" to confirm.
And here we go with the DRM removal process. The process is straightforward.

Step 1. Run the top Digital Copy/iTunes to Archos 80 G9 Converter, drag and drop digital copy or iTunes movie to the software.

Step 2. Then select an friendly video format for Archos 80 G9 Tablet, e.g. select "Format -> Archos -> Archos 80 G9 Tablet Video (*.mp4)" for Digital Copy & iTunes to  Archos 80 G9 Tablet conversion. Basically .mp4 format is an universal format for Android tablets.


Step 3. (Optional) - You can click "Settings" to adjust the output parameters as you want. For example, click "Video Bitrate" to change the smoothness and quality when playback, and usually 1500-2000 kbps can provide you with a very good viewing experience. Set resolution as 1024*768 can help you watch full screen videos.

(Note: You can edit the video before conversion. Trim, Crop, Effect, Watermark functions are very useful and convenient.)

Step 4. Click "Convert" button to start. NVIDIA CUDA and AMD APP acceleration is perfectly supported by the DRM Converter for Archos 80 G9.

After the conversion, you should be able to transfer Digital Copy and iTunes movie to Archos 80 G9 Tablet or any other Android-based Tab you own and display movies as you like.

For me, I choose "Format > Common Video -> Android and Apple Devices(*.mp4)" as the best format for Digital Copy and iTunes to Archos 80 G9 conversion because after several tests with multiple video profiles, I find this profile with xvid video codec takes less conversion speed but output great video quality compared to H.264 .mp4 video. Although the 8.0-inch Tablet supports video playback up to 1080p, I choose 1280*720 for converting Digital Copy & iTunes to Archos 80 G9 – the tablet screen resolution is 1024 x 768, and I don't plan to watch Archos 80 G9 videos on HDTV via HDMI output - just common needs for playback on local tablet. For watching videos on most Android tablet, Bitrate in 1500~2000kbps is just all right. I find that Bitrate higher results in big file size, and lower visible quality loss.


1. If you want to copy/rip/compress DVD movies to Archos 80 G9 Tablet for watching freely, the Best DVD Ripping for Android can help you, there is a guide can refer to: Ripping DVD movies for Archos 80 G9 tablet with best video quality

2. If you are put and play 1080p/720p HD Videos (MKV, AVI, VOB, Tivo, MTS, TS, VRO, MPG, WMV, FLV, F4V videos, etc.), the Best Archos Video Converter Ultimate is the best choice fot you.
