How to Play MKV on Galaxy S4
Can't play MKV on Samsung Galaxy S IV? It's a common question among Galaxy S4 users.
MKV is one of the most popular video formats. Lots of videos are saved in this format, especially High-Definition movies. Unfortunately, this format is out of the Galaxy S4 supported video format list. It only supports MP4 and WMV etc. So, if you want to play MKV files or 1080p (most 1080p files are in MKV format) files, you have to convert MKV to Galaxy S4 compatible formats.
From Galaxy S4 official website, we know lots of video parameters are limited by the device, such as video format, video codec, video resolution and video frame rate, etc. You can play a video file with the best effect only when all the settings of the video can fit the device. Well, how to do these settings when you convert MKV files? Don't worry, you can convert MKV to fit the device best even if you're not a Pro.
All you need is a professional MKV to Galaxy S4 video converter. Here, I strongly recommend Wondershare Video Converter ( Video Converter for Mac ), which directly provides you with a presetting for Galaxy S4.
