Troubles playing MKV files on Mate 9
“Hi all, I am having trouble with MKV files, some of them play fine and then some of them don’t (there’s no audio), anyone know why this might be? It’s a bit confusing. Seems to be if the MKV file doesn’t contain AC3 codec, it will work but I’m not sure about this. Any ideas?”

Third party media players like VLC, MX Player and BS Player will play MKV files well. However, if your MKV movies have AC3/DTS codec, you may encounter audio lost issues while playback. In that case, we would recommend converting AC3 MKV to AAC MP4 for viewing on Mate 9 smoothly. Here’s how.
