Summary: Encounter troubles while playing MKV videos on Samsung TV&LG TV? This article will teach you how to watch MKV videos on Samsung TV(LG TV) freely.
According to Samsung&LG TV tech specs, they can support MKV videos. However, users still meet issues while playing MKV videos on Samsung TV&LG TV:
"Hi. My Samsung TV won't play certain mkv files it's maybe 1/20 mkv files. I've tried using mkvmerge GUI and set all the tracks' compression to none but it still won't play..."
"I can open my MKV videos in LG TV, but the TV only showed the video picture for me. I could not hear anything. Checked micro several times, however, the same issue. Does LG TV support MKV format?"
An MKV is just a container format, holding video, audio, image or subtitle files in it. The video and audio files in different MKV files can be encoded with different codecs. For example, an MKV file with DTS audio can't be rendered on Samsung TV or LG TV. Under this circumstance, A professional MKV Converter is needed here. What I used is Brorsoft Video Converter.
