I am experimenting with a Nexus 7 (16 GB) and exploring what can and can´t be done with it.
Well posting with it, for instance, is far from easy for me... tapatalk anyone?
This aside, I had great hopes as far as visualizing raw videos, in particular from my gopro, since I don´t have any display for it (or a wifi bacpac for that matter, although this would not help in the absence of an android version of gopro´s remote control software... available soon!)
I purchased a USB-to-go cable, the Nexus media importer app and tried to communicate with the gopro. The good news is that it works! The bad news is that playback is choppy. Yes, I am used to that, since I am using Adobe Premiere on a Mac, but I am not talking about editing here, merely playback.
I verified that this is not a connection issue, since copying the files to the N7 doesn't help. I tried different players (Android default, VPlayer, BSPlayer), but all struggle, whichever mode I try.
Now, I am talking about 1080p protune footage, so it is not particularly light, but still, I was hopping that the latest and greatest from Google would do it.
The same happened with my Sony CX550V and its 1080i 25mbps .mts footage. Actually I was quite pleased to find a player to play those (something my iMac is not capable of doing... are you listening Steve?). But here again, streaming or after copy, playback was choppy.
Does anybody have a different experience or maybe some advice?
