The MKV is an open standard free container format, a file format that can hold an unlimited number of audio, video, subtitle tracks or picture in one file. This format offers a richer media experience than any other current format, this makes MKV a popular choice for making back-ups of DVD and Blu-ray discs that you could also play on a computer connected to a TV. iPhone 6S/6S Plus users need to play HD MKV files but failed, how to get through?
Apple unveiled the next flagship phone- iPhone 6S/6S Plus on September 9, 2015. Reports suggests this new iPhone could be slightly thicker and larger than the previous models- iPhone 6/6 Plus. And it will be more powerful by equipping the A9 processor paired with 2GB of RAM. As for screen display, a particularly durable rumor shows that the new iPhone will come with a sapphire display, which would offer a higher degree of scratch and shatter-resistance than the current models’ Gorilla Glass. However, it can get pretty frustrating when some of the MKV files in HD just don’t seem to play well or not recognized by iPhone 6S/6S Plus at all.
