AllShare Play is outdated and it's not used anymore. Link is vital for playback of the required files.

These are the official file formats supported by Samsung Link:

"TV/Blu-ray Player/BD-HDD: .avi .mkv .asf .wmv .mp4 .3gp .vro .mpg .mpeg .tx .tp .trp .mov .divx .flv .vob .svi .m2ts .mts .webm" - Samsung Support.

Technically MKV is just a shell which may contain various video and audio codec, bitrates, resolution, frame rate etc. However, Samsung TV only plays MKV files with specific parameters inside. Now, you may have a clue why we can play successfully some MKV files on Samsung TV, but fail to play other MKV movies.

To solve Samsung TV MKV playback issues, the best bet is to convert MKV to Samsung TV more compatible video format.
