How to Play MKV Files on Windows 10/macOS Sierra?
MKV is an industry standard, not all media players support it yet, even though support is rapidly growing. There are two main options for playing MKV files on your computer. These include, using an MKV compatible media player or downloading the appropriate codecs.
Method 1: Download Codecs for Compatibility (Do It Carefully)
If you would prefer to use Windows Media Player or another Windows player that doesn’t already support MKV files, you can install some codes to make your media players support MKV.
Head to Ninite at ninite.com, clicking on the CCCP option, and then clicking Get Installer. Once you’ve downloaded that file, run it to perform the install. The reason we suggest using Ninite is because almost all codecs available for download on the internet are bundling crapware, or worse, malware. The good folks at Ninite make it their mission to provide downloads completely free of any bundled nonsense — their reputation depends on it.
Method 2: Play MKV Files with VLC video player (Recommend)
