Can't Play AVI/MKV/FLV/WebM/VOB Movies on Nexus 7 Tablet?

Why Can't Play Videos on Nexus 7?
The native Android video app on Nexus 7 supports few video formats. And there are only a few player apps for our choice. When they update Android OS to the latest v4.4, it will take a long time to wait for new version optimized for new OS.
From Google official website, MP4, DivX, Xvid, H.264, H.263 and WMV are fully supported by Nexus 7. But some people still encounter issue in playing above format videos. It may be due to the following reasons:
- Video codec is not H.263, H.264 AVC, MPEG-4 or VP8
- The video contains AC3 codec which can't be supported
- File size exceeds maximum 4GB
- High bitrate video from camera
