    so i just got this iphone6s and i need help in downloading an "mkv" from the iphone and watching it. how do i do it?
    here is this link to the file >>sample.mkv

    actually now that i think of it. it's not just mkv files. it a bunch of file types that i usually download everyday from my pld phone so i can watch them on the phone. my old phone use to do it so im sure the iphone can but i don't know how what am i missing. for some reason i can't seem to do thoes things on the iphone, some of the file extensions are mkv,mpeg4, avi, i really like the phone i would like to keep it. but this issue really is a deal breaker for me. maybe there is app that will work? please help

    Probably not a supported file format for that phone you will need to convert the file. Check Apple's website specs for that phone it will show the supported file formats for audio and video.

    Not really sure I usually convert it on my MacBook. But you can check the iOS Apps forum and see if anyone there knows or if someone can recommend the best conversion app everyone is using these days.
