Lots of people ask me, “Can iPhone play mkv files“? Actually most of the downloaded torrent video files and movies are of mkv format and certainly iTunes won’t allow mkv file transfer to your iPhone, let alone playing. Of course there are plethora of 3rd party video players that supports number of file formats including mkv, but native support is always appreciated. Moreover, many of us including me are used to convert the file format to supported one using Handbrake or any other conversion software, but again it is a sheer time wastage.
