Hi Virginia,

In order to view MKV video files, you will need a Media Player with several codecs including MKV. Codecs are file formats that are registered within a player. The best option for your Fedora Linux is VLC Media Player. You can download it for FREE from this link:

  • Download VLC media player and install it.
  • Open VLC Media Player.
  • Click on File.
  • Click Open.
  • Select the MKV file you want to play.
