Try diceplayer or mxplayer on the playstore.
The stock player can't reproduce ac3 sound.
Sorry for my english.....

MX player is free and works as does Archos player, also free. Both can be found on the play store. You may need to also get the Archos free codecs and if you want DTS sound in MX then you need to download the custom codec (there is a link in MX player)...

Yes MX-video player will do the job but
Samsung video player on my note 2 can play mkv file with no issue. So there must be away to make it work.

mkv is just the container, samsung dropped ac3 support. You can strip the audio & remux or do as others suggested and use a software based player.

I used to use MX player but recenty found out clueful privacy advisor indicate it has the potential/risk of leaking the device unique ID. Currently using super video player/Gplayer using software decoder to be able to hear audio during video playback.

Dice Player gets my vote its excellent, but you need "libffmpeg.so" for DTS audio which I added in the thread below.

Lets not forget XBMC if you want the full media center experience

Talk about XBMC. I also have audio problem. I can get it plays any movie but bad audio meaning I can hear sound but too much static... Is there any setting I need to do.
Xbmc 12.3 on Note 10.1 2014 and Note 2 same problem.

If I were you I would skip the usual trash on market and go for VLC instead. Its free and opensource with excellent reputation of being the swiss knife of media players. Recently the authors made a sustained effort to bring it from PC to iOS and android.

Beta version is available on the market and fresh apk nightlies can be downloaded from their servers http://nightlies.videolan.org/build/android-armv7/.

Even though still in beta, everything except hit and miss harware acceleration works.
