    Did you check the spec sheet if its prebuilt in? If not I recommend MXplayer. Plays pretty much everything if it isn't originally supported

    Those are codecs and the original poster is asking about a container format.

    As an earlier poster said, it probably won't support it without an extra program. I've heard good things about BSPlayer for MKV files.
