No sound on MKV movies I put on my Samsung S6

“Hi all, I just have a 64GB Galaxy S6 on hand. I bought the 64GB Memory for saving more video files so that I can watch them whenever I want. I added several movies in format of MP4 and MKV onto my S6. The MP4 files play fine but there’s no sound on MKV movies. I got a message saying something like ‘Unable to play audio track. Unsupported audio codec’. I’ve tried the stock player and MX player, the same result. How can I fix this? Please help.”
