Generally, I have a good experience on Oculus Rift. Now the weird thing is that when I play MKV in Oculus Rift, I find the audio can't play properly. I've research almost everywhere and finally found some possible ways. Now share with you.
From its Oculus official site, we know that Oculus Video Players do not yet support AC3 or DTS audio codec. If your MKV media contains AC3 or DTS audio, it won't be supported by Oculus player. A quick solution to watch MKV movies on Oculus Rift is to convert MKV to a format that Oculus can natively support.
Here Brorsoft Video Converter is highly recommended to complete the conversion process. Overall, it is a professional MKV converter, player and editor. It enables you to encode MKV to Oculus Rift supported file type like MP4, MKV in .mp3, .aac audio. Best of all, this software allows you to convert MKV to 3D videos such as MKV Top-bottom 3D Video, MP4 Top-bottom 3D Video, MP4 Side-by-Side 3D video, which can be played on Oculus Rift perfectly. If you are Mac users, please turn to Video Converter for Mac(Sierra, El Capitan and Yosemite compatible).
