MKV is not an industry standard video format and you may want to convert your video in MKV into MP4 or AVI (YouTube supported format) so that you can play it over other media player like VLC.
As far as I can see, there are many solutions you to do the job quickly. Some experts suggest to use VLC to convert MKV to MP4 and via versa.
