    Unable to play mkv files on Samsung Galaxy SII

    Even though I have successfully copied mkv files to my Samsung Galaxy SII, I am unable to play those files on my phone. What is the right procedure required for playing mkv files on Samsung Galaxy SII?

    The .mkv is not supported in the default player for Samsung Galaxy SII as it is not supported in the Hardware codec.
    You can download applications to play these files as there are number of applications that supports .mkv formats like Mx video player, QQ player these kind of applications will support the formats. Also check the video resolution as it is supported in the phone.

    Hello friend,

    Although Galaxy S2's CPU supports Full-HD playback, to play .mkv files smoothly, you must use third-party softwares.

    Personally I would suggest MX Player. It supports almost every possible video format. And above that, it also supports Multi-core decoding. It is optimized for multi-core CPU's like your S2. Also, it has excellent video playback, best ever I've seen.
    Using MX player, you can play HD .mkv files with ease. But I doubt that it could play Full-HD mkv.

    Another alternative is Mobo Player. It is also one excellent video playing app and similar to MX Player.
    I'd say you try out both and choose the one most suitable for you.

    Hope it helps,
    Regards!

    it will not play as it is not supportable by Samsung Galaxy II

    you have to get the video converter and then you have to convert the file in the supportable format and then try playing

    hello my friend as we all know that in high end android phones like galaxy s 2 there is no need to convert the media files while you transfer them to your phone from computer as the built in media player is advance and is able to almost all the popular video formats.

    But i feel sorry to say that MKV format is not supported by the default player in the galaxy s2.

    In order to view the files that are in the MKV format you have install some extra softwares that support this codec.
    Following software will help you:
    • Mx video player
    • Android mkv player
    • QQ player
    • Vital player
    • V player
    • ArcMedia

    Dear,
    MKV files are not supported by Samsung Default Videos player.
    Here to play those files you need to convert them or Use a Another Video player.
    MX Video player is the best one and supports almost all formats.
    It is available in Google play for free.
    All you need to do is just search for it and download.
