elect an Android friendly format, e.g. H.264 .mp4 for conversion. Basically the "Common Video -> H.264 Video (*.mp4)" is a universal format for Android tablets and smartphones. Besides, there are optimized formats for Samsung, Motorola, Acer, Asus, Sony, Toshiba, HTC, etc branded Android devices; choose a proper one as you need. Or depends on your device, you can choose a suitable video format from "Android" catalogue.

Tip- Video/Audio parameter settings:

If you need, you can click Settings to set the video parameters like bit rate, resolution, frame rate, etc. Remember the file size and video quality is based more on bitrate than resolution which means bitrate higher results in big file size, and lower visible quality loss.

If you search online, you will find there are many free MKV players for Android in the "Google play" and most of them are free. Popular Android MKV players include Mobo Player, MX Video Player, RockPlayer, mvideo player and Dice player, etc.

Note: There are a lot of user feedback to say "None of the Android player changes MKV file size and resolution, though there are so many MKV players for Android, many of them can't play HD 720p or 1080p MKV movies in VP8 codec with high quality on your Android device. Something even worse, some apps will slow download your device.
