I've tried 2 different apps, moboplayer and Soul Movie. I can play "avi" files just fine. But, when I play "mkv" files, it only has video, but no audio. Does anyone know how to fix this problem? Is there some codec I need to install to get it to work?

Well when I installed moboplayer it detected which one I needed and linked me right to it from inside the app. Try to reinstall and see if it prompts you. I will check for you later on my tablet.

Thanks. I'll uninstall and re-install to see if it prompts me to install codec.
I have installed the codec for moboplayer, but it still has no sound.
I have the same problem here. MP4 file is ok but MKV only video without sound. Tried mobo, rock stock plaer as well. Any solution?
I would forget about trying to play MKV's on the TF. If they have AC3 or DTS sound they will not play other than in something like Vplayer (also should work in Rockplayer) They don't play so well in those apps if they are 720p or above as most MKV files are using high profile video encoding level 4.1 which the TF cannot play smoothly (yet?). If you are playing over wifi at home then give VLC Direct a try. There is a 5 minute per playback demo. It streams movies over wifi and can play anything but MKV's with embedded styled subs. You need VLC running on your PC as it transcodes on the fly (In VLC go to the View menu and set Interface to Web Interface. Then use VLC Direct to browse to your VLC PC (You need to set the IP of the PC and port which is usually 8080, 5554 and make sure your firewall does not block these). In VLC Direct you can also set the quality. I set it to the highest 4096 for video and audio I leave at 64 since audio is not great on the TF anyhow (unless you use headphones).
Playback is very good but occasionally I hit some stutters and screen corruption. Might be pushing the bitrate too much not sure. It takes a decent powered PC to transcode on-the-fly so make sure your PC can handle it. If they can fix the glitches I might shell out for it myself.
