A fast way to get AVI files onto Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 for smooth playback


Just got my new Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 for days. I have many AVI videos and want to view them on my Samsung Galaxy Tab 3, but I got the trouble- some files can be played well on Tablet 3, some files can not. I’m searching for the quick fix to get out the trouble for a smooth playback on my Tab 3.

As far as I know, Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 can support a wide variety of video formats(AVI/DIVX, WMV/ASF, FLV, MKV, MP4/3GP, WEBM), including AVI video format. But unfortunately, it seems it’s impossible to watch all the AVI files on Galaxy Tab 3 tablet. The real reason is that AVI is a container format. It can be encoded by different codecs, some of the codecs may not compatible with Galaxy Tab 3 tablets, so we’ll have problems when playing these AVI movies on your Tab 3, even with some popular Android video player like MX player, Mobo, etc. In that case, to play these AVI videos on Samsung Galaxy Tab 3, we need to convert them to H.264 or MPEG-4 encoded format first. Here is the tutorial share with you.

Download and install Brorsoft Video Converter, which is the optimal tool I prompt here. Overall, the program can be used as an all-in-one video conversion app for Galaxy Tablets. Besides AVI, it can also help you encode/re-encode almost all 1080p/720p HD videos including MKV, VOB, MPG, MOV, TiVo, MTS etc. for Galaxy Tab 3 10.1/8.0/7.0, Galaxy Note 2, Galaxy Note 3, Galaxy S3/S4 and other Android tablets or phones. It has an equivalent Mac version entitled Video Converter Mac, which can convert .avi videos to Galaxy Tab 3 on Mac OS X (Include Lion and Mountain Lion).

Converting AVI files to MP4 for Galaxy Tab 3 10.1/8.0/7.0

Step 1: Install and run the AVI to Galaxy Tab 3 Converter, click Add button to import your source AVI videos. Batch conversion is supported so that you can add multiple files.


Step 2: Click on the dropdown menu of “Format”, here you can choose Samsung > Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Video(*.mp4) as the target format. It ensures the best video quality on Galaxy Tab 3.


Step 3: If you like, you can click “Settings” to change the video encoder, resolution, frame rate, etc. as you wish. According to my experience, the file size and video quality is based more on bitrate than resolution which means bitrate higher results in big file size, and lower visible quality loss, and vice versa.

Step 4: In the end, click the “Convert” button to start encoding AVI movie files to MP4 format for playing on Galaxy Tab 3 tablet.

P.S. If you wanna to get a powerful one-stop program to convert videos, Blu-ray movies and DVDs to your Galaxy Tab 3 10.1, Galaxy Tab 3 7.0, Galaxy Tab 2, Galaxy Tab 10.1, Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus and other Android, iOS, Windows RT/8 etc. based devices simultaneously saving time and effort, Blu-ray Video Converter Ultimate will be your best choice.

Personally I hate connecting USB cable for every small thing, NOT to mention sometimes forgot to bring USB cable. In fact, most of us prefer to transfer photos, music, videos, contact, etc WIRELESSLY from computer to android tablet like Samsung Galaxy Tab 2/3, Google Nexus 7 or any android phone like Galaxy S4. You can transfer files from android device to PC or Mac wirelessly via WiFi.

Google Play Store has more than couple of popular android apps to transfer files wirelessly. You can access media & transfer media using a browser on your computer.

AirDroid: AirDroid is free android app. I personally like this android app. Interface is nice and clean. This android app does more than just transferring files between your android device and computers.

If you have 2 Samsung products like a tablet & a phone, you can transfer files wirelessly using Kies Air. As Kies Air comes pre installed, you don’t need to install any other apps.

Like all these apps, the only requirement is both android device & computer need to be on the same WiFi network. These apps should works for Galaxy Tab 2, Galaxy Tab 3, Nexus 7, HTC One X, Galaxy S3, Galaxy S4, Droid Razr and more.
