How to Play AVI on Nexus 7

However, there are still quite a few of the AVI files that can’t be rendered on the device. Maybe these players don’t support the full HD video very well or maybe it’s because of the Nexus 7's native support for file format and codecs. The best solution is to convert the AVI to Nexus 7's natively supported video formats.
