How to play MKV format videos in Sony Bravia LED TV or any other LED TV

  I recently bought Sony DAV TZ 215 DVD Home Theater System. But when i was running it for the first time i was really disappointed since it cant play MKV format videos. But all my HD movies are in MKV format.

  Later i found a way to make the HTS system play MKV formats with a little workaround. This workaround can be used for Sony Bravia and any other LED tv's

Let's see the procedure,

  1. Go to and download txMuxer latest version and extract it on your computer.
  2. Double click on tsMuxerGUI.exe to open the tsMuxer
  3. In the Input tab click on add to add the mkv file you want to convert
  4. Select the output format as M2TS Muxing and change the video level if required
  5. Click on Start Muxing, the out file will be saved in the output directory and that can be changed.
  6. This process will take around 30 secs for 1Gb MKV file.
  7. Copy the output file to a USB and your sony device must play that video format.
The screenshot below will show the options available

MKV is a container and M2ts is also a container, hence there is no loss in quality while transforming.

Hope this helps...

I am having Sony EX 650 40" Smart Led but Can't Play MKV Files But After Connecting LEd with Homestream ( Some of MKV files it shows and plays.
After that I found your tutorial and it worked for me but Sound didnt Came then I found another way About using avidemux it worked perfectly And fine way.
But I still Can't Play Dual Audio Files Such as having two Languages in Single file.
How to Switch between Languages? ( I contacted Sony Company, they said to press AUDIO button At the Below Of remote when the Video is Playing. It showed error Saying "this feature is not available in current Input method"
If You have any solution related to this then Please Mail Me at
