Okay. Here is the problem:
I just got this android tablet. When i opened the video in the
local disk, it played normally. No lag or stuck. So, i thought
everything was fine until i inserted the thumb drive into the device,
i tried to play the video in the thumb drive, cos thats the only way
to transfer music, video files into the devices. Cos it dont have the
usb like mp3 or mp4. So, when i inserted the thumb drive into the
device, i played the video, and cant be played. What i meant was its
lag and stuck, so i cant even watched any video in the devices except
for the video in the local disk. So, i thought maybe the device
couldnt read the video in the thumb drive, so i went to buy the SD
card, to see if it works. And its still the same. The format of the
video is all supported by the ipad, as in the description. I used avi,
mkv, mp4 and rmvb, still cant be played. So, i googled about it and
try to solve this problem. Some people said, must download the
applications of the video player, it can play all kind of movies. So,
i went to download it, and they are still the same and no changes at
all. Then, i was thinking, maybe i should convert the format. I
converted few movies and tried if it works, can be played but its lag
sometimes, only 90% work. Dont tell me i have to convert all the
videos and it takes me few hours to complete 1 video. Usually, for
this kind of device, it can play all type of video formats. Not even
one format can be played without conversion? At least have few
formats la. That is acceptable but this not even one format can be
played without conversion. I went to see the description of the video format,
it supports so many formats, and when i played all the
video, not even one can work properly. I had done so many
ways to solve this problem, and i cant find the solutions. If anyone of you
have the solutions for this, do let me know. Thank you so much.

Sounds like the read speed of the USB host and the SD card can't keep up with the video. If you want to play video from the SD or thumb drive you might have to convert it to a lower quality (lower bitrate) to prevent stuttering. Some tablets unfortunately have very poor read and write speeds for external drives and SD.
As the video plays properly from the internal storage, it's not a problem with the player and video format.
Does this always happened to the android ipad? Or only mine got this problem?

So you mean that i have to transfer the movie into the internal storage?
