Play MKV on Android

Though Android devices don’t support MKV playback natively, you can still play MKV on Android without converting the MKV files. There are many free MKV players for Android in the market and most of them are free. Popular Android MKV players include BSPlayer FREE, Dice Player and MX Video Player. With a smart player installed on your Android device, you can play MKV movies without conversion on your Android device.

Note that though there are so many MKV players for Android, many of them can’t play HD 720p or 1080P MKV videos in high quality on your device. What’s more, some apps will slow download your device. So it’s still recommended that you convert the videos on your computer and then transfer the converted videos to Android devices for playback on the go.

Also you are free to import your DVD moviesiTunes DRM and video from BBC iPlayer to Android tablets and phones for playback.
