I have a problem with some movies/series I'm watching on my Galaxy Tab S 10.5, the audio wont play at all sometimes. I'm using MX Player. I was watching these series (The Mentalist) and episodes were playing fine (MKV files), until I ran into one that would play but on mute, I tried playing the file on my PC and it was fine.

I looked around and apparently MKV is not supported by this tab? but why can I play a lot of other MKV files without any problem?

MKV is supported, AC3 is not. I don't know why samsung exclude AC3 audio codec from firmware. You can either try to enable software audio encoding in MX player or use VLC player, OR if you have a root acces, u can install AC3 codec. search here on XDA about how to do it.

Playing MKV without audio probleem. There is a special codec you can download somewhere on the net, just look around.

I use allplayer to play some movies that aren't supported in the default player.

Click on the "note" icon right to the H/W button. Then select Use s/w audio decoder.
