The Galaxy Tab 2 Video Converter supports wide range of video formats, like TiVo, MXF, MVI, EVO, VRO, VP6, MTS, M2TS, ASF, MOD, TOD, DV, RM, RMVB, MOV, 3G2, QT, VOB, MPG, MPEG, MKV, FLV, F4V, AVI, WMV, 3GP, H.264, DviX, XviD, etc. Most 1080p, 1080i, 720p, 720i HD footages shot with cameras also can be handled well.
