Can’t Play MKV Files on Sony XD93 via USB Flash Drive – Solved!
Sony has released its second-generation Android TVs and the first to arrive on our test bench was the high-end XD93 (X93D in the US). This is a 4K TV that supports HDR (high dynamic range) through a form of limited local dimming (from edge LED) and DCI-P3 wide color gamut. You can stream any videos to it for playing. Although in the manual book of Sony XD93, MKV is one of the supporting formats. However, in actual use, many people complained that MKV can’t be played in Sony XD93 via USB. MKV is a container format developed by Matroska. It is becoming more and more popular since it can hold an unlimited number of video, audio, picture or subtitle tracks in one file. However, sometimes we still can not solve the issues that Sony XD93 won’t play MKV. This is probably because MKV files are with DTS audio and Sony XD93 have bad compatibility with DTS audios.
I presume that if the Sony XD93 had a DTS decoder that the MKV DTS files would work, however, most Sony XD93s may not have a DTS Decoder since DTS is mainly for sound systems that have 5.1 or higher speaker support and a DTS Decoder. User should take into consideration before generating MKV files for use in streaming to devices that may not have DTS decoders. Make your MKV files to support what your going to be streaming too like DLNA servers: Roku, PS3, Xbox, and know the sound coding support before generating these files and make the file configuration accordingly.
