Does anyone know how to prevent the default application for video from lauching when I choose to open a video file? The default program doesn't want to play my mkv files despite the manual saying this is a supported file type. Or, is there something I can do to these video files before uploading them to my Playbook to increase the chances of them playing?
The default program does see those files and even shows the in-play type icon which would indicate that it CAN read them but when I try to open that file, it claims the file type is not supported.

Converting video is always an option but are we now saying that the screen resolution is what's preventing the mkv files from running? Since the manual claims these file types are supported and when opening them it says they aren't, I'm hoping to avoid having to convert them if possible.

Okay thanks. I'll assume you're talking about the video resolution and not my Playbook screen resolution because I don't see the option to change the Playbook screen resolution under settings. If this is the case, video conversion is inevitable, I suppose.
It really seems odd that of 14 different mkv files (all different movies, TV series, and sources) none of them would be the right resolution. Mental note: just another Playbook quirk to jot down on the list. lol
