Step 2. Set an optimal video format for Samsung Galaxy Tab
Although Galaxy Tab exports videos up to 1080p, the 1920*1080 HD formats are not ideal solution for watching videos from Galaxy Tab. Comparing with SD video formats, the HD formats generate much bigger files. And you can hardly tell the differences between SD and HD quality when playing on Galaxy Tab. A 90min movie could takes up 6-18GB if it is encoded with 1080p HD formats comparing with 2-4GB in SD. There are visibly differences on a 48’ HDTV, but not on a 7’ Galaxy Tab. So you are encouraged to click on the pull down menu of “Format”, and then follow “Common Video” to choose > DivX, Xvid, MPEG4, H.263, H.264 encoded formats.

According to my test, the AVI, MP4, WMV and MKV format work well with Galaxy Tab. 3GP format is not recommended, for this format gives vague image for Galaxy Tab playback. The best format for Galaxy Tab? H.264 encoded MP4 or MKV format must be the top choice. The two clips I tested not only play great on Galaxy Tab, but also take up less disk space. If you also have an iPad, “iPad>> iPad Video H.264 (*.mp4) format” is your top choice, because this format is good for both iPad and Galaxy Tab.


Step 3: Put and Blu-ray movies/DVD on Samsung Galaxy Tab
Click "Convert" button to start converting videos to Samsung Galaxy Tab on Mac. After conversion completes you can click the "Open" button to find the converted files. Now the videos are optimized to be friendly for Samsung Galaxy Tab. 



  1. To get higher video quality, simply click “Settings”, find “Bitrate” in Video column, and set it to “high quality” before the video to Galaxy Tab conversion starts.
  2. To watch HD contents on HDTV from Galaxy Tab, you may choose 1080p video. Just follow “HD Video” and choose DivX HD AVI or MPEG-4 HD MP4 video format. Note 1080p MKV is not acceptable for Galaxy Tab.

If you wanna backup Blu-ray movies to MKV with multiple audio tracks and subtitles streams included, you can try Pavtube ByteCopy software.

If you have problems when playing back MKV files on your PCs or with your HD Media Players, you can visit MKV Playback Page to learn more available MKV playback solutions.
