Answer: Encoding speed is related to many factors, like your CPU processing speed, hard disk writing speed, Disc Drive reading speed, etc. I used Acrok Android Video Converter to convert video to Galaxy S6 Edge compatible .mp4 file because it offers perfect Galaxy smartphone preset profile and this format shrinks a 120min movie into around 1GB and still keeps good quality and aspect ratio.

Should I download a media player for Android?
Though Android devices don’t support AVI playback natively, you can still play AVI on Android without converting the AVI files. There are many free media players for Android in the market and most of them are free. Popular Android video players include BSPlayer FREE, Dice Player and MX Video Player. With a smart player installed on your Android device, you can play AVI movies without conversion on your Android device.
Note that though there are so many video players for Android, many of them can’t play HD 720p or 1080P AVI videos in high quality on your device. What’s more, some apps will slow download your device. So it’s still recommended that you convert the videos on your computer and then transfer the converted videos to Android devices for playback on the go.
