“Hi all, I just I just threw an MKV on my LG V20 and opened it with the stock player. It loaded the video quickly and looks great, it even loaded the subtitles. However, it told me ‘unsupported audio format’. Is it just my phone or has any of you experienced it also? How can I solve my MKV audio problem on V20? Thanks for your help.”

It is probably because the MKV file you are trying to play has a audio track with DTS,DTS-HD, DolbyTrueHD, or something along those lines which I’d assume the LG V20 is incapable of decoding. If this is the issue, I would recommend converting the MKV to AAC MP4 for playing on V20 smoothly. Here’s how.
