    Hi,

    Can you play HD video on you Z30 devices?
    It seems to be incapable of playing almost all of my video files in .mkv format.

    ps
    renaming files to .avi didn't help.

    IIRC, it's more of a codec issue (AC3?) rather than an extension issue.

    But it does play HD videos in 720p and outputs 1080p.

    Is there a way to install missing codecs?

    BTW, 2 files Z30 can play are with AC3.
    Looks the same to me as in all other files which Z30 was unable to play.

    simply download a video converter and convert to avi
    or if you are on 10.2.1 then simply download MX player apk file and install it... it can play all format

    Thank you.

    But Z10 can play all those files.
    It means that Z30 is not as good as Z10.
    Quite a disappointment.

    "BlackBerry says devices sold with AC3 support are supposed to have it in all future updates. If the device shipped without AC3 it will not have it. "
