Comparing Video Codecs and Mobile Devices

Video playback is important on today’s mobile devices. Users expect to be able to watch movies, news, and entertainment. Because of this, most devices have built-in support for many video types. The following sections provide a handy reference list of devices and relevant specs for video playback. This list is important to know as it can be used to help you determine what you should be aiming for when creating videos for end users.

Android has good support for common video formats as well as a wide range of audio file support. Something that should be noted with devices running Android is that some codec support can be added by custom builds and by third-party manufacturers. For example, the Samsung Galaxy Player 5.0 has support for FLAC audio files even though it runs Android version 2.3.5.
