    All the video formats are not supported by Samsung Galaxy Y.

    But by using some third party application you can play all the videos

    Some of the best video players are:

    --> MX Player

    --> Mobo Player

    --> rock player

    --> V Player

    --> VLC Player

    By Installing any one of the above apps you can play .mkv video files .

    Hope it helps you.

    Its not a problem in your device.Its very simple.
    You first have to check your device that what type of media player you are using.You have to make sure that whether you are using a player that is compatible with the files that you want to play on your device.
    I think that your friends are using a different player from you and you are using a player that is not compatible to your files that you want to play on your device.
    So i think that you have to consult with your friends and have to install the same player that they are using for playing the videos of format that you want to play on your device.
    Its not necessary that you use the same player that your friends are using as there is not a single player for a different video format.You can take any of the player that is able to play the files of your format.You can download any player from the internet on you can purchase the same from the shop.
