How to Convert MKV/AVI/MOV/VOB to Galaxy S9
Q1: "I have a black screen and sound with mkv files on Galaxy S9. Anyone else have this Issue? What can I do?"
Q2: "I have the problem playing VOB files on my Galaxy S9(screen remains black). Any help?"
Searching the Android forum, I noticed many guys are troubled in the issues when playing MKV, MOV as well as VOB, AVI, etc on Samsung Galaxy S9. Actually, there are a few reasons to cause the issue. One of the main reason is due to the video format/codec incompatibility. As we know, Galaxy S9 doesn't support H.265, DTS, Dolby 5.1/7.1, VOB, MOV yet. To fast solve the trouble, a quick and easy way is to convert videos to Galaxy S9 more friendly format.
Tutorial about how to convert VOB/AVI/MOV/MKV to Galaxy S9 supported file format
To begin, free download Brorsoft Video Converter (or the Mac version.)
The software has a codec pack that enables conversion between different video and audio file formats, it can convert (DTS) MKV, AVI, MOV, FLV, MPG, VOB, etc to Galaxy S9 supported file format such as H.264 .mp4 with the best quality. Not only does it functions as a video converter, but also as a video editor that you can use to trim, crop, merge videos and so forth to personalize and touch up your movies before converting them.
Download Video Converter for Galaxy S9:
Step 1. Add video files
Start Brorsoft video converter, drag and drop the .avi, .vob, .mpg, .flv, .mkv files to the software window to import.
Step 2. Choose target format
After the files are added, click Format > Common Video and set output video format as mp4. The reason mp4 is the target format is that by packing the videos in mp4, the file size will be reasonable small and the video quality remains good.
