This post will give you the easiest solution to convert MKV, AVI, VOB, WMV, Tivo, MPG, Flash movies to Sony Xperia Z2 for playing, so that they can enjoy them anywhere they like.

If you are android fan and just plan to get a android phone, now, you can pre-order 10 inch Android slate Sony Xperia Z2, which is a wonderful smartphone. As you see, Xperia Z2 has 5.2 inch 1080 x 1920 screen, which is great for watching videos. However, Due to its own formats limitation, many video files can't be played well by Xperia Z2. Such as MKV, AVI, VOB, MPG, Tivo, WMV, FLV/F4V, MOV, MOD, TOD, M2TS etc.

For this situation, a good solution is using Pavtube Xperia Z2 Video Converter, which lets you compress HD 1080p movies to Xperia Z2 optimized videos and downsize them to less than 4GB. The converter performs faster and supports more variety of source formats than over-majority competitors on market. Even TiVo recordings can be converted to Sony Xperia Z2.
In case that you run a Mac computer, download Xperia Z2 Video Converter for Mac and follow the steps above for converting MKV, AVI, VOB, WMV, Tivo, MPG, Flash video to Sony Xperia Z2 for playback.

Step 1. Drag and drop source video to the Sony Xperia Z2 Video Converter only with 'Add files' button on the main interface. Drag the files directly is also a good idea.

Step 2. Click the pull down menu at the opposite side of "Format", and then choose "Android -> Android Phones 1080p Video(*.mp4)" format.

Step 3. Click "Convert" button to start compressing MKV, AVI, VOB, WMV, Tivo, MPG, Flash videos to Xperia Z2 friendly format and size.

And you can preview and customize output file size.

To do this, click on "Settings" button. In the pop-up Profile Settings window you can find set settings and check task details. The upper parts shows you the a/v settings you're using. The lower part displays the file information.

File size depends on the bitrate you use. For instance, in this case, I use the defualt bitrate 2000kbps, and it ends up generating a 2.4 GB .mp4 file. If I set video bitrate to 1500kbps, the final file will be 1.8GB in size. If you want smaller file size, set video bit rate down.

When video to Xperia Z2 conversion completes, you can click "Open" button to find generated videos. Now you can sync movies to Sony Xperia Z2 and enjoy all kinds of video files on this 10 inch Android slate.
