How to Play MKV Files on WD TV Play

”I just bought a Western Digital TV Play and hooked it to my HDTV. It'll play just about any file type OTHER than MKV. However, the documentation on Amazon states that it CAN play MKV. Since most of all my videos are converted to MKV, that's why I chose this particular model. Any ideas?”

When plays MKV files on WD TV Play, it turns out that some of them can play while some can't. For instance, those with the higher-bit-rate H.264 5.1 profile won't play.

To solve this problem, you can purchase a WD TV Live for about $20 more. WD TV Live can play more MKV files. However, it still can't play all MKV files since MKV is a container that can be encoded with various codecs. So, the best bet is to convert MKV to WD TV Play or MKV to WD TV Live compatible formats.

To do the conversion between MKV and WD TV Play or WD TV Live, you need a third-party software to help you. We recommend you Firecoresoft Video Converter (Video Converter for Mac). Since it supports a broad range of video formats including MKV, MP4, AVI, FLV, and many more on both input and output, so, it can easily convert MKV files to WD TV MP4, AVI, etc.
