The following article will show you a simple and detailed step by step guide to get MKV files played on Chromebook.

How to play local video on Chromebook?

The Chromebook lacks teh type of hard drive that you’d expect from a computer, therefore, you won’t be able to play local video on Chromebook from local hard drive. The good news is that Chromebook features USB ports and SD card slots, which let you connect to external storage devices for those times when you need to access a file that you have saved not to the cloud but an external hard drive, thumb drive or SD card. Therefore, you can store your local MKV files on an external drive for viewing on Chromebook.

Supported external hard drive system by Chromebook OS

Chrome OS supports a wide range of file systems for external drives. It can read and write to the NTFS file system that Windows PCs use, read (but not write to) the HFS+ file system that Macs use, and cross-platform FAT16, FAT32 and exFAT file systems. It also supports the MTP file system used by digital music players and ISO9660 and UDF used by CDs and DVDs.

Supported media file formats by Chromebook OS

According to Google, you can play the following video and audio file formats on Chromebook:
Video: .3gp, .avi, .mov, .m4v, .mkv, .webm,
Audio: .m4a, .mp3, .ogv, .ogm, .ogg, .oga, .wav
Codec:

From above lists and tablet, we can see that although Chromebook has included native import support for MKV container file format, however, it is well known that MKV can be encoded with various different video and audio codec, if the MKV file are encoded with the incompatible video codec such as MPEG-1, MPEG-4, H.265/HEVC, WMV/VC-1, etc or audio codec like WMA, AC3, DTS, FLAC, ALAC, DTS-HD, Dolby TrueHD, etc. There will be either no video or audio when viewing on Chromebook.

If you are not satisfied with the output file quality, feel free to adjust the output profile parameters such as video codec, bit rate, frame rate, resolution and audio codec, bit rate, sample rate, channels in the program’s “Profile Settings” window according to your own preference.

Remove subtitle and deinterlace of MKV files

“So far I have to say I am very impressed with the last version of VLC. It rocks!!! One thing that came up right away was my DirecTV DVR recordings. Now, I know DirecTV requires some stupid Windows Media Crap running on a machine for me to be able to play these, but I am on a Mac. I can see all the recordings on the VLC Upnp menu, but I can’t play any of these since it has a yellow triangle next to the DVR entry.”

“I just fired up VLC - mac (paid / registered version) and I was surprised to see the playlists from my DirecTV DVRs show up in the Local Network panel. Unfortunately, they will not play. The error message being: No suitable decoder module. VLC does not support the audio or video format “undf”. Unfortunately there is no way for you to fix this. Does anyone know of a hack, program anything that I can use to extract these videos? I know my DVR is about to croak and I don’t want to loose some of the media that I have not viewed yet.”

But you can’t actually save the media to your PC’s drive. The bad news is that currently there is no Direct2PC application for a Mac.
