How to Play MKV File on Apple TV

Share This:

It has come to light that Apple TV cannot play MKV files directly on account of its compatible video formats being no other than M4V, MP4 and MOV. Based on such limitation, format conversion may be the best place for streaming MKV to Apple TV. Yet what worries some of us is that it will lead to a decline in video and audio quality. When formats are transferred file quality suffers. Forasmuch, what we need is settling the question in eminently safe fashion without risking quality.

Play MKV file on Apple TV

Not to worry though, MKV file can make light work of to be played on an Apple TV. You just need to download a codec or converter that supports converting and formatting the MKV video while preserving the high definition of which.

WonderFox HD Video Converter Factory Pro has combined two methods to stream MKV to Apple TV: format conversion and video transmission. When the user population splits on preferred idioms, the software must offer both idioms. In trial, both of them are doing well in playing MKV on Apple TV.

2. Video Transmission.
Identical to the above method (a-b-c), except changing output format into output device. It means you are able to stream MKV to apple TV directly without transformation.
