    Is there an app available that'll play video in mkv format? (preferable free)
    I have tried to play some through the native player but there was no sound.

    Not free but KalemSoft Media Player is awesome for handling MKVs and pretty much any other media file format. As a bonus it will make it easier to stream movies from home while you're out and about.

    Ohh, and you got no audio because the MKV has a 5.1 audio track in it. Kalem will have no problem with it, but there are many things that must be just right for the stock media player to work with them. (Biggest is no leak, the starting point is to load the OS that your carrier supports)

    The native player will play MKV, but does not support embedded ac3 audio. Youi can either purchase Kalemsoft, or remux the audio in your MKV file. There are a few free Windows programs that can be used to remux, including Xvid4PSP and Avidemux. Remuxing a two hour movie takes about 10 minutes or so.

    I had a MKV video issue before and what I did was to transfer the video to my PC, download a free tool to convert MKV to MP4 and voila... Problem solved.
