My instructions for converting MKV to MP4 for playing on the Xbox might be useful here - http://carbonize.co....kv-on-xbox-360/
Thankyou for your suggestion. I installed the program you linked to, it seems like a very useful tool generally and im keeping it, but it did not solve the stuttering problem.
(I didnt realise the phone can play MKV files since Gingerbread, tried the MKV files I had, they still stuttered)
I processed my MKV 720p files (American tv shows..nothing special) exactly as you described but they still stuttered both on the phone and through the HDMI out. I even tried the LG P990 setting, with copy ticked and unticked. The files either stutter or play in SD. I have also tried Handbrake using various settings..without success.
Using another player will play the files on the phone ok but the stuttering via HDMI is much worse, almost as though the processor in the phone can't run an external program and deal with the HDMI at the same time.
What frustrates me is that the mp4 HD 1080p LG demo file on the phone plays perfectly through the HDMI out, so the phone CAN do it.
So back to the original question, what software and what settings to I need to use to get HD 720p output to work through the HDMI.
Any other suggestions?
