Does Philips TV support MKV files through USB

As a big entertainment in our daily life, Philips Smart TV always brings us great movie enjoyment via USB flash drive or Wifi connection. If you have lots of MKV files and a Philips TV, you may want to watch the MKV files on Philips TV. Whereas, when you try to do this, you'll find it's not easy as you image. It would occur issues like Philips TV won't detect MKV video, although MKV is listed as a supported format in Philips TV tech support. 

However, it is really a embarrassed thing when you tried to play common downloaded MKV files on Philips TV, only to find your Philips TV can't read the MKV video. So what's the matter? It is officially stated MKV is listed as a supported format in Philips TV tech support. If you've trouble playing MKV files on Philips TV, read on for details.

Why Philips TV won't play some certain MKV files?

As far as we know, video codec, bitrate, resolution all decide the compatibility of the video on Philip TV. An MKV is a container.

Luckily, this problem is easy to solve - all you have to do is convert the MKV videos to Philips TV more compatible video format like H.264 encoded MP4 format. There are a huge amount of video tools out there that allow you to convert MP4 files to Panasonic TV friendly formats.
