Although it's claimed by the official site that the Nexus 7 can play MP4 files, there are times where you'll still fail to play MP4 on Nexus 7. What's wrong with it? Why can't the Nexus 7 play an MP4 file? It's probably due to the incompatible video codec. Different MP4 files may store files with different video codecs. Nexus 7 only supports some of the various video codecs available. The other possibility might be because of the video parameters such as the frame rate, bit rate and resolution, which are not supported by Nexus 7. Despite the incompatibilities, you'll need a video conversion to make your MP4 files fully compatible with the device.
