Google's Nexus 8 is well on the way to becoming some kind of mythological beast. The 8.9″premium tablet device has got a bigger and sharper screen. As more and more rumors being leaked out, it's fair to assume that we can expect no less than a Full HD display, quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, and a bit more on top of that.

Like the eariler models Nexus 7, the Nexus 8 supports videos in H.264 AVC, H.263, MPEG-4 and VP8 formats natively. By that measure, the possibility of playing various videos (FLV, MKV, AVI, WMV, MOV etc) on Google Nexus 8 is minimal.

By converting video to Nexus 8 100% compatible format, it is plausible that we can play videos on Google Nexus 8 without any hassle.
