    Default .mkv audio support

    The stock video app doesn't support audio codec for .mkv files..
    Any way to "install" or make the audio work on the stock video app?

    Otherwise I'm thinking of installing VLC, because it supports many extensions and audio codecs. But I kinda liked the stock video app

    .mkv is just a container file and doesn't necessarily mean a specific codec. You probably are trying to play audio encoded as AC3. If that is the case, it isn't supported for legal reasons. Blame the lawyers. You might be able to find an old .apk for something like MX player which supports it. I think the new versions have it stripped as well, but if you Google it, there was a way to "side load" the codec into MX player. I don't think you can add codecs to the stock video player. Hope that helps.

So that you can with the stock video app without the audio issues.
    Cherry I'm using mxplayer it plays MKV on the s/with but I noticed when I switch to s/w from h/w the quality goes down a bit but doesn't matter
