EMIT app is a free utility that allows you to instantly stream video files (including .mkv extensions) from your PC directly to your Android tablet.

So there’s no need to wait for your video to encode entirely. Also it pre-encodes videos and downloads them to the device for offline viewing. The only downside to the app are the small ads that appear on the top right during playback. For each time you click on an ad you’ll get one ad-free video play but if the ads really bother you then you may consider coughing up the $3.45 for the full version of this app.
