MKV Files

Recommended Posts

Does Emby support MKV files? It seems all of the files I download from torrent sites are all now in MKV form. Its a bit of a pain in the ass to convert everything to MP4 just to watch.

Hi, yes emby supports mkv. You don't need to convert them to mp4 in order to use them in emby. Please let us know if this helps. Thanks.

I'm using the PS4 Media server app, it sees the files but when you try to play a MKV file it says media not supported.

Nope, it doesn't support MKV it looks like but I use VLC to convert all of the videos to h.264 mp4.

Can I just play the files through my PS4 browser? 

 

I think I tried but it said I had to have premiere.

Our Emby Theater app does require Emby Premiere, yes.
