This article provides a simple solution to watch MKV movies on LG Smart
As a user of LG Smart TV, I love it so much, especially the fact that it comes with three USB ports, wired and wireless Internet access and ability to play back every single video file I’ve thrown. But when I transfer my MKV files to LG TV, the TV can not open the file. How should I do to play MKV movie on LG Smart TV?
Searching online, I've seen plenty of talk about problems when transferring MKV to LG TV from USB, especially no audio issue. Searching further and widely from Google and got some recommended solutions. The basic reason why LG TV refused to play an MKV file is that it may contain LG TV unsupported audio codec in the MKV video file. The MKV files with unsupported audio codec (i.e. MKV DTS files) certainly can't be played on the LG TV.
The quick solution is to find a third-party tool to make everything easy. The Brorsoft Video Converter is one of the best options. This video converter app helps you convert MKV to LG TV more friendly format i.e. H.24 MP4 and then play them on LG TV's big screen. Besides MKV, MTS, MPG, FLV, XAVC, MOV, AVI, TiVo and more videos are supported. Plus, it offers kinds of preset profiles for media players including iPad, iPhone, Nexus 7, Nexus 10, Nook HD, Samsung Galaxy Tab, Galaxy S7, etc to meet your different needs. If you are Mac users, please turn to Video Converter Mac.

Step 2. Click Format bar and choose H.264 High Profile Video(*.mp4), H.264 Main Profile Video(*.mp4), or H.264 Baseline Profile Video(*.mp4) from "Common Video", which can be recognized by LG smart TV perfectly. You can easily choose a decent profile “LG TV (*.mp4)” from TVs profile list.

Editor's Note: Addition to adding videos to LG TV via USB, but you can also stream MKV files to your LG TV as long as it has DLNA support. If not, it's okay if you have a streaming device like Chromecast, Roku, Xbox or PS3.
