How to have ASUS VivoTab Smart ME400 play Blu-ray, DVD and 1080p videos from flash drive

Asus is hoping to replicate the success of the Nexus 7 for Windows 8 users with a new Windows 8 tablet - the VivoTab ME400. Launched at CES 2013, the new tablet will be powered by an Intel Atom Z2760 Dual Core 1.8Ghz processor and come with 2GB of RAM. Coming in two flavours, there will be 64GB and 32GB storage options for the 10.1-inch 16:9 1366 x 768 resolution ratio screen. Where Asus is hoping the VivoTab ME400 will be a success is that it will give you the full power of Windows 8 rather than Windows RT as found on the Microsoft Surface, and promises 9.5 hours of battery life from a single charge. The VivoTab (also known as the VivoTab Smart) will pack a rear-facing 8-megapixel camera with flash and 1080p video recording and a - megapixel camera for video chats around the front.

Like other Windows 8 tablets, the VivoTab does not include an optical drive for you to play DVD. And there is not a Windows Media Player. If you plan to enjoy all kinds of movies on the ASUS VivoTab Smart, USB OTG cable is a must-have accessory (since it doesn’t have a full-sized USB port). I used it to connect my external hard drive (or flash drives) so I can copy or watch DVD movies off it. With an all-in-one converter package, I can even rip my Blu-ray collections to play with VivoTab Smart. Also, it lets me encode unsupported MPG and 1080p MKV videos to VivoTab Smart optimized MP4 files. Feel like giving it a shot? Download Pavtube Video Converter Ultimate and follow the guide below to convert Blu-ray, DVD and 1080p videos to ASUS VivoTab Smart ME400.
