MKV (*.mkv) is the extension name used for Matroska video. I often see this file format on HD videos probably because it offers a much better compression ratio than MP4 or H.264. I’m not sure what version of VLC media player you have but the latest version at the moment supports the MKV video format. Go to VLC media player to download the latest.

Smooth playback of MKV videos will depend on your machine. Since most MKV files contain high-definition videos, the resolution of the image is usually for widescreen format. You need to have a fast-enough computer to play HD videos and a supported widescreen format monitor.

To make VLC media player as the default media player for MKV videos, in VLC media player, click “Tools” and then “Preferences” or just press CTRL + P. In “Interface” tab, scroll down a bit and click “Set up associations.”

VLC media player set file associations

In “File associations” window, scroll down in the “Video Files” section and check “.mkv” and then click “Apply.”

VLC media player check mkv

When you double-click on an MKV file, it should open the VLC media player automatically.
