The following is a step by step guide on how to convert MKV to Galaxy Tab 4 mp4 format so as to successfully stream MKV to Android for playing MKV on Samsung Galaxy Tab 4.
When playing local content, Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 impressed us by supporting versatile video formats including MP4, 3GP, WMV, ASF, AVI, FLV, MKV, WEBM. When seeing this, you may say: since MKV is said to be supported by Galaxy Tab 4, why the Tab 4 doesn’t accept my MKV files? Well, that’s because MKV is a container instead of a codec. If the MKV contains a video or audio codec that Galaxy Tab can’t recognize, for instance, DTS, Galaxy Tab 4 won’t accept it.
Now run and enjoy all MKV videos on your Galaxy Tab 4. With the best Video Converter from Brorsoft, users can have the incredible ease of enjoying the best quality MKV videos on their own Galaxy Tab 4 and other Android devices.

How to Convert MKV(DTS) files for smoothly playback with Galaxy Tab 4
Step 1-> Launch the MKV to Galaxy Tab 4 Converter, and import your source materials. Batch conversion is supported so that you can add multiple files for conversion at a time.
Step 2-> Click “Format” bar, here I recommend you “Samsung > Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Video(*.mp4)”. The output videos could fit on Galaxy Tab 4 perfectly.
Step 3-> (Optional) If you like, you can click “Settings” to change the video encoder, resolution, frame rate, etc. as you wish. Remember the file size and video quality is based more on bitrate than resolution which means bitrate higher results in big file size, and lower visible quality loss. According to my experience, for watching videos on the Galaxy Tab 4, 720p with 1500~2000kbps is just all right.
Step 4-> After everything is OK, hit the big Arrow button to start the conversion.
After the conversion you can click the “Open” button to find the converted files. Now connect the Galaxy Tab 4 to your computer and copy the converted MKV video to Galaxy Tab 4 for great enjoyment.
Editor’s Note: There, now you know how to get MKV movies onto your Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 so you can watch them on that gorgeous screen! Keep in mind that some of the settings can be tweaked to improve the video quality but it’s a balance between quality and size. If you run out of internal storage, consider getting the Galaxy Tab USB adapter, which allows you to use attach an external USB flash drive. Enjoy the show!
