No audio on .mkv files when playing on iPhone 6, how to fix?
“Hello guys, I just added some new TV shows to my iPhone 6. They are in MKV container with AC3 codec. The video is perfect but there is no audio if I try to play it with VLC player. I played them on my Mac’s VLC and the audio was there! How can I go through this? Any advice would be appreciated.”
To be able to play MKV files with AC3 codec on iPhone 6/6s (or other iOS devices) without no sound issues, you will need to convert the file from MKV to something else, such as H.264 MP4 with AAC audio. In this tutorial, we will show you how to do that.
