Transfer and Play MKV on Google Pixel 2 XL

What do people suggest for watching movies and videos on the Pixel 2 XL (i.e. .mkv files) as I found MKV is not supported natively by the Android phone. Searching XDA Forums, VLC, MX Player Pro are recommended as they’re both great players with great features and fluid software decoding. But for playing certain DTS .MKV, HEVC MKV files on Pixel 2 XL, using a third-party video is not workable sometimes. In this case, converting all of your MKV files to Google Pixel 2 XL more friendly MP4 video would be the ultimate solution. 

To begin, first download Brorsoft Video Converter (or the Mac version.)

Besides, this software offers kinds of preset profiles for media devices including Apple TV, Sony TV, Xbox One, PS4 etc to meet your different needs. Far more than a video conversion program, Brorsoft Video Converter also comes with a built-in video editor, with which, you can personalize and retouch your videos in clicks.
