How to watch MKV movies on Galaxy Tab 4 with best quality
Summary: Have problems playing MKV videos on Samsung Galaxy Tab 4? This tutorial will show you the simple solution to fix the problem.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 4's 1280*800 HD screen definitely brings you an extraordinary movie watching experience. You can add your video files from PC to your Galaxy Tab 4 for playback on the go. When playing local content, Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 impressed us by supporting versatile video formats including MP4, 3GP, WMV, ASF, AVI, FLV, MKV, WEBM. When seeing this, you may say: since MKV is said to be supported by Galaxy Tab 4, why the Tab 4 doesn't accept my MKV files? Well, that's because MKV is a container instead of a codec. If the MKV contains a video or audio codec that Galaxy Tab can't recognize, for instance, DTS, Galaxy Tab 4 won't accept it. So, how to add and play MKV on Galaxy Tab 4 without incompatibility issues?
To avoid the MKV video playback issues with Galaxy Tab 4, an easy workaround is to convert MKV to MP4, Galaxy Tab 4 most compatible format. Along with some help from Brorsoft Video Converter, a powerful video converter, editor and player, you can effortlessly achieve your goal.

How to Convert MKV(DTS) files for smoothly playback with Galaxy Tab 4
Step 1-> Launch the MKV to Galaxy Tab 4 Converter, and import your source materials. Batch conversion is supported so that you can add multiple files for conversion at a time.
Step 2-> Click "Format" bar, here I recommend you "Samsung > Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Video(*.mp4)". The output videos could fit on Galaxy Tab 4 perfectly.
Step 3-> (Optional) If you like, you can click "Settings" to change the video encoder, resolution, frame rate, etc. as you wish. Remember the file size and video quality is based more on bitrate than resolution which means bitrate higher results in big file size, and lower visible quality loss. According to my experience, for watching videos on the Galaxy Tab 4, 720p with 1500~2000kbps is just all right.
Step 4-> After everything is OK, hit the big Arrow button to start the conversion.
After the conversion you can click the "Open" button to find the converted files. Now connect the Galaxy Tab 4 to your computer and copy the converted MKV video to Galaxy Tab 4 for great enjoyment.

Keep in mind that some of the settings can be tweaked to improve the video quality but it's a balance between quality and size.
