I bought a Surface Pro 2017 last month ago. Great experience. But when I playing MKV files, the .mkv files only play sound with black screen. So, my target now is to find a way to play MKV on Surface Pro 2017 without any hassle.
Searching high and low, two methods come out. First, try another MKV player app or program. I was suggested to try playing those MKV files using another app like VLC on Surface Pro. I’ve tried yet, but the issue persists.
Then, I’d try another way- converting MKV files to MP4 to play on the Surface Pro2017. Brorsoft Video Converter is the software that many guys highly recommend.
