The reason for this experiment was to make sure both my android devices could play video fine.
1. Both devices reset to factory default and Mobo player installed.
2. Loaded video on both devices with the following characteristics:
a. H264 codec video , 720p
b. MP3 . With 2 channel audio
c. AVI container
d. installed on the local internal storage.
e. filesize was approximately 1.5 Gig
The results were:
- No visibile frame jitter.
- No voice sync problems.
- Visible frame jitter. (Video seems not perfectly smooth).
- After a period of time the sound went out of sync. (Dialogue to video went out of sync).
Can anyone else on the forums run a similar tests to see if its reproducible?
I guess my assumption that ALL current Tegra 2 based Android tablets are essentially the same, is wrong?

Yep both audio and video enhancement was turned off as there is no equivalent on the XOOM. Seems like this is a feature specific to Thrive or vis versa.

Try both after a fresh "come out of power-on" with similar stuff in the background.
Also try teh MX Movie Player - it can switch between HW and SW modes.

Wow. So I installed the MX player and if I turn on software decode it plays smoothly. If I switch to hardware decode on, it plays choppy like I have seen. It sounds rather counter intuitive that software decode is running more smooth. Could this be a bug??

Check the system software version running on the THRiVE. There were significant improvements to video handling and codecs in 1.5.0023 and 1.5.0029.
