I understand you declined this issue in a previous post, so I'm reopening it here. This is important to your users and saying you are focusing on the "most common" formats is not a reasonable response for most of us. Please reconsider or expand upon your reasoning for not supporting this.
It bothers me that I have to open things in other apps from SkyDrive
Mkv is indeed one of the common format and it's not reasonable that one drive do not support streaming mkv

I am deeply disappointed that this support does not exist. I'm seeing that I have to move the subscription to another service.

Microsoft is dragging their feet on .mkv support for no good reason. Please update the iOS Onedrive app with .mkv support.
