Q1: Can iPhone play MKV files? 

A: As we all know, the iPhone's built-in player only supports h264 encoded mp4 and MOV video. So if you have files in the formats of MKV, FLV, RMVB, AVI, etc., you can't play them directly. 

Q2: How to Play MKV Files on iPhone or iPad?

A: If you want to view and play these unsupported files on your iOS device, you'll need a third-party video player that supports MKV to help. There are many choices, such as AVPlayer, Infuse 6, Playable Pro, Flex, etc. While if you don't want to install any third-party applications on your device, you can directly put MKV files on your iPhone in a format supported by your device and then play them smoothly without obstacles. Whichever way you choose to play MKV files, there's the solution for you.
