I have an Vizio D-Series 43 TV(D43fM-K04). I have files on an external usb hard drive. there is no audio with all .mkv files which have attached codec, when they are played using the default media player. However they are fine if played on my PC through VLC. I don't want to install any apps on my TV. I would like to get them working using the default media player. How do I fix the lag between video and audio? Can anyone suggest a solution?

MKV movies no sound on my Sony Bravia TV. I downloaded 12 4K MKV movies from intnet, but I can't enjoy these films freely. Some movies only show video without sound, and some have sound without image. Is there any possible explanation for why audio in a video file would only be detectable by one specific app? Would really appreciate any ideas or tips, thanks!
