Does anyone know what should be done for Vizio TV to play MKV files correctly? What happens is that the TV can’t either read the file or when it does the images are kind of distorted with poor audio. Based on searching in Google, I know that Vizio TV supported file must be encoded with H.264 and the audio as AAC. If MKV encoded with other codecs, Vizio TV won’t read and play it.
