Get the easy way to watch MKV with DTS codec files on HTC 10.
When I got my HTC 10, I want to watch MKV DTS on it. So, I need to figure out is there any app that decodes all this? Based on previous experience, I found most apps are limited by the unsupported DTS. So, how can I play MKV DTS on HTC 10 without hassle?
As MKV is not a default format for HTC 10 and other Android devices, what you can do is to install a media player that plays nicely with MKVs and DTS, etc. Based on many guys’ recommendations here – I grabbed a copy of VLC for HTC 10. However, when I try playing MKV on HTC 10 with VLC, I found that the playback is jerky. Not what I expect.
Well, since DTS encoded MKV files are not supported well yet with these 3rd party video player apps on HTC 10. An alternative method is to convert MKV with DTS to HTC 10 playable format .i.e MP4 (.*aac audio).
