I am experiencing some video lag when playing a movie on the playbook. I've tried different movies and they are all the same. I would like to know if this is normal or if some configuration has to be done.

The movies I downloaded on the playbook are DVD ripped to.avi format, they play perfectly on the computer.
Are there any relevant issues with avi playback on the playbook? Should I try to convert these movies to another format? What format do you suggest?
Thank you for your support!!

After trying differnet formats including the h.264 mov, it turned out that the larger the file (the ones I tried were around 700 MB to 1.1 GB), the more lag I get using any video format!!
I tried a .avi video with size of 170 MB and it worked perfectly.
This is annoying given the capabilites of the playbook, any solutions??

Maybe this can help!
I have found a document with the supported media types for the PB
Maybe if you save this movies as a different file, it just might solve your issue.
Let me know if this helps.
Please give kudos and mark as a solution if this helps!
