Playbook support .MKV video

Hi,All:

I just downloaded a video of 2010 Victoris's Secret,
But it's MKV type. Can this be opened by Playbook?

Re: Playbook support .MKV video

i do hope they add support for mkv files, a lot of my video, especially hd stuff is mkv.

nearly all mkv files are using x264 inside, which the playbook supports. it should be relatively easy to add the container support.

if you have the patience you can use a program like handbrake to convert your videos to a format that works like mp4.

Re: Playbook support .MKV video

Yes,Indeed agree with you! Playbook has so great hardware, Should support some more video files like MKV etc..

For one video, I can use other tools to change into other support file, But that is not the solution I am looking for.
