[Matroska-users] Re: Problem with .mkv file extension - burning to DVD

Hi Sean,

VirtualdubMod is more or less abandoned, and also meanwhile redundant 
for MKV handling. What matroska/codec pack did you install to enable MKV 
playback in WMP ? Note that playback in VLC, as was clearly mentioned in 
the DVD Santa Guide, is NOT an indication for correctly installed 
DirectShow filters. Both WMP and DVD Santa need them. Get the matroska 
full pack from http://packs.matroska.org and try again

Regards
Christian
