Can someone recommend a good MKV player for iPhone? Specifically, something that can play 720 or 1080 files on a smartphone such as the upcoming iPhone 5S or iPhone 5C?
iPhone can’t decode MKV very well, and that’s maybe why so many users are seeking a best MKV player app for their iPhone. Even if the latest iPhone 5C or 5S. According to my own experience, it’s really difficult for us to find a perfect media player to play all the MKV video files. Because MKV is a file format that can hold an unlimited number of video, audio, picture, or subtitle tracks in one file. It is complex and elusive. So, selecting a media player isn’t indeed a good way.
If you want mobile playback in .mkv on iPhone 5S or iPhone 5C, your best bet is to convert the mkv videos into mp4 format, which is naturally supported by iOS. Encoding MKV takes long time, but it is necessary to do so, because of the limitation of iPhone 5S or iPhone 5C. Actullay, as long as you take a right video conversion software, the encoding time should be OK for you.
