What is the best Android video player that supports .mkv?
Question by Chris /

What’s the best video player for Android that supports .mkv playback?

I gave Mobo Player a spin, it plays the .mkv files, but I can’t seem to change the video size/resolution.

I also tried mVideoPlayer, but I only get sound with a blank/black screen when trying to play the .mkv videos.

Is there anything else I can try?

    I’ve tried everything and only Dice player works well. However, it still doesn’t run smoothly on Tegra 2…it works great on Tegra 3 though (Transformer Infinity).

    None of the Android player changes MKV file size/resolution. What you need is a MKV Converter software that is capable of compressing video and adjusting resolution. Have a try with Pavtube MKV Converter.
