After we we have gone deeper in specs and features of Xperia Z6, now we want to talk about how to watch MKV/AVI/VOB/ISO/Tivo/H.265 videos on Sony Xperia Z6. When we have a smartphone in hand, we use it to communicate with others and meanwhile we watch movies on it. In the environment without Wi-Fi, you need to downloaded in advance or put some local movies to Sony Xperia Z6 if you want to watch movies on Sony Xperia Z6 on the move. But each phone has its own limitation on video format.
Sony Xperia Z6 smartphone only supports the following video and audio:
Audio playback: AAC, AMR-NB, AMR-WB, FLAC, MIDI, MP3, PCM, Vorbis, WMA
Video Playback: 3GPP, MP4, M4V, MKV, AVI, XVID, WEBM
So as for those VOB, Tivo, ISO, H.265, MKV/AVI/MP4 with unsupported video codec files, Sony Xperia Z6 can't play them smoothly. Of course, if you are wiling to install a powerful third party media player like VLC, you may can play some MKV, AVI, VOB, FLV, etc files on Sony Xperia Z6 successfully. But to remove any hassle, I suggest you re-encode all of these video to Sony Xperia Z6 more compatible MP4, MKV, AVI format with a video converter before you put local MKV/AVI/VOB/ISO/Tivo/H.265 files on Sony Xperia Z6.
