Noob question: Would just unlocking the bootloader and rooting disable OTA updates or is that only an issue once you install a custom ROM?

It becomes an issue the moment you flash a different recovery.

I'm still waiting on my N7 to ship. Ordered on 7/12.

Okay, made a little headway with .mkv play back on the Nexus 7. Haven't had a chance to fully test all of the .mkvs we have but the few I have tried have worked okay. I'm focusing on local play back first then, with Skifta streaming.

So you will need:
1) This latest version of the DICE Player, this free version has ads so be forewarned.
2) This ffmpeg.so file from xda.
3) Install DICE Player.
4) Extract the .so file from the .zip and copy it to the root file of your Nexus 7 (Just connect via cable; open Nexus 7; copy it to the main directory you've opened, NOT into one of the folders.)
5) Open DICE Player, Settings>Custom Plugin>Check the box and you're done Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

6) Test your .mvk files however it is you are watching them local/streamed. (This .mkv had no sound before, now it does) Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

^ This .mkv fix is mainly for .mkv files using dts audio.

Read this thread if you are having video stutter issues: Stuttering It's one possible fix. Then use Apex Launcher or something to compensate for the Rotation Control App.

All of that just to play .mkvs? MX player with the additional codec and settings set to software decoding works for almost all of my .mkvs, subtitles and all. Only one show hasn't worked, some subbed anime by THORanime, but they do their stuff weird and I haven't looked into it.

I have MX Player Pro and it's given me a few problems on some of my .mkv files. No sound and stuttering on some...I think it was the dts audio on a few.

Which additional codec do you put on the MX Player? I thought you only needed the extra codec if the player prompted for it? I never got a prompt, just wouldn't play right.

Just ordered this case and this Micro USB-OTG cable. Probably just root and make a tiny media (movie) drive out of my DATA Traveler.
