“I have a problem is that can Galaxy Tab S tablets play mkv movies? According to the official introduction, Galaxy Tab S are able to play 720p,1080p movies. But, some reviews said that, the tablet's dual-core CPU has trouble running large 1080p movies smoothly. However, when I sync, I get an error message that says the file cannot be played in Galaxy Tab S 10.5 or my friends’ Galaxy Tab S 8.4. Any ideas?" 
 
You may have the same questions. According to my own experience, the one reason(maybe there are more), mkv format isn’t compatible well with Galaxy Tab S 10.5 and 8.4, due to MKV’s own characteristics- multiple subtitles, multiple audio tracks, containing different audio and video codecs. Most users found that DTS auido codec contained in a MKV file is hard to handle by most of the Android tablets, Galaxy Tab S 10.5 and 8.4 included. And we found the 3rd party app may not support all the MKV files, don’t mention the built-in video player on Galaxy Tab S 10.5 and 8.4. 

Fortunately, I’ve solved this problem. As far as I know, h.264 mp4 format is the best for android devices. Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 and 8.4 also could play it well. And it’s considered as the good balance between video quality and file size. Under normal circumstances, a complete movie file with this format won’t be over 4GB.
