Let’s go to the point. We find some guys encounter issues when playing MKV on Macbook Pro(2017):
“I just got a new 2017 MacBook Pro. I ran into an issue when I attempt to open an MKV file. I prevents it and says it is a unverified app and I need to go into System Pref to Security to allow OS X to open it. It does this for all MKV files. Why is it treating them like an app instead of a file and is there a way to fix this. My 2009 Macbook Pro never had this issue.”
As we know, QuickTime is the default video player on Mac. But QuickTime(including the latest QuickTime Pro 7) can’t support MKV files well.
