MKV no sound playing on Samsung S8, how to fix?
“Hi all, I’ve put some video files on my Samsung S8 to watch, tried two different files but they are both .mkv. Video works fine, but it says the audio is not supported. I used the stock and MX player to play the video, but both of them didn’t work. What’s the deal with this? Anyone else have the same problem? How to fix it? Do I need to convert them to a different format? I would really appreciate any help. Thank you!”
This is probably because your MKV movies contain an audio codec that is not compatible with Galaxy S8. In this situation, we would recommend converting them to a format that is suitable for playing on S8, such as H.264 and AAC encoded MP4 format.
