Play MKV on chromecast
If you are asking a question like this, you must have used Chromecast for a while and known how it works. It also proves that you have found the amazing function of playing a local video in a chrome browser and cast it on TV via a Chromecast. One day, you drag your MKV video and drop it into the chrome browser as usual. You click the “cast” icon on the chrome webpage. But it failed to work. Why?
Let’s say, while it works perfectly on the video format like MP4, you may find it hard to do the same on other formats like MKV. Maybe you would say it worked last time and there must be something wrong with my new Chromecast. Actually, it is not. You might get lucky on playing some MKV files because they are encoded in a way that Chrome supports. However, to most of the MKV files, when you drag them into Chrome you will most likely end up downloading them into your download folder, rather than playing them inside the browser. Why is this? As MKV is a container format, it uses different encodings for video and audio, which makes MKV works imperfectly on Chromecast. You can consider it as a compatibility problem.
