Today we are here with an old issue of lack of support for MKV video files on Samsung Smart TV, or any Samsung TV which has support for external video source. The issue rises as the Operating System being used in these TV’s only support compatible H.264 MP4 Video format. So you have to get any good video converter, mostly 3rd party apps and then convert these MK4 to the MP4 format.
The bigger question arises here is that, Can Samsung TV or Samsung Smart TV can play MKV files? The answer is Yes, but to some extent. It has been written in description of every Samsung TV model that it can run almost all popular video formats including the *.MKV video file format. But in reality it supports such files only with limited parameters, so in most cases we always have that Media player error when we try to watch a MKV file downloaded on our Samsung Smart TV.
