Yes that is true. The Playbook has support for many different types. WHen I encoded my library I did it in the Apple TV format; it is compatible with PB and my Apple devices,. I still use Orb to transcode for the XBox 360 ...

Most movies I have are mostly in mkv format. The mkv container does AFAIK not support streaming very well (this is not a problem with the PB but with mkv). Having a medialibrary and duplicating it, just for beeing able to to watch it with the PB makes not much sense to me.
