The recall of Galaxy Note 7 in 2016 brought a large loss to Samsung's market share, Samsung has now released the new generation of flagship Galaxy S8 aiming at reclaiming the market share back. The Galaxy S8 is equipped with a latest-developed 5.8-inch infinity display which has 2960*1440 definition. Therefore, if you are a big fan of watching movies on mobile phones, S8 will assure you the best optical experience. Nevertheless, some of the users may find that some video formats are not compatible with S8, then they should convert the videos to Galaxy S8 compatible formats so the movies can be played on the device smoothly. There are two points that should be known if one wants to convert videos to Galaxy S8: what are S8 compatible video formats and what tool they can use to accomplish the video conversion?
Samsung Galaxy S8 Compatible Video Formats
The compatible video formats for Galaxy S8 include MP4, M4V, 3G2, WMV, ASF, AVI, FLV, MKV, WERM, 3GP, MPEG-4. Although the Galaxy S8 can support so many kinds of video formats, but normally just some of them are known and widely supported such as MP4, AVI, MKV, 3GP, FLV. Additionally, if you really want to enjoy the unique infinity display of S8 you will need a video format that can contain highest definition, which should be MP4.
Although there are some people thinking that with a third party video player like MXplayer the video incompatibility issue can be solved easily. It's true that MXplayer can play many video formats. However, the day will come you come across some kinds of video formats that even MXplayer fails to read and play like VOB, WTV, MOV. Therefore, if you want to play a VOB video on Galaxy S8, the best solution is to convert the video to MP4 then transfer the converted video into your S8 for free playback.
