      It is undeniable that all of us can derive tremendous viewing experience from large screen and HD display of Samsung Galaxy Note 5, especially when watching HD videos and movies. Meanwhile, errors to play HD videos, M2TS/MTS, AVCHD, MKV, VOB, FLV, Tivo etc., on Samsung Galaxy Note 5 will emerge since formats are incompatible with Note 5 supported videos like MP4/H.264/WMV. If you would like to play HD videos and movies copied from DVDs/Blu-ary, downloaded from online movie torrent websites or recorded by HD camcorders with Note 5 on the move, it is necessary to get help from a professional Video Converter Ultimate for Samsung Galaxy Note 5. You can refer to the guide: http://www.hivimoore.com/2015/04/play-video-on-galaxy-s6/
