Audio in MKV is not supported on my Galaxy S7
“Hi folks, I really hope someone can help me. I’ve put some MKV video files on my Galaxy S7 to watch. Video works fine, but it says the audio is not supported. I get a message saying ‘Unable to play audio track. Unsupported audio codec’. What’s the deal with this? Is there any codecs or anything I can download to fix this? Do I need to convert them to a different format? Anyone else have this problem? If anyone could help it would be much appreciated! Thank you!”
