Best advice : Upgrade your old, outdated Win ME to Win2000 or Win XP

Next advice : please turn to the matroska-users list with questions like 
this, they definitely dont belong on matroska-devel

3rd advice : Forget about playback on DirectShow based players like 
Windows Mediaplayer and MPC on this old retarded Windows, and use the 
Windows compiles of VLC  http://www.videolan.org ( without Realvideo 
support ) or Xine http://xine.sf.net ( including Realvideo support ) for 
MKV playback on Win98/ME.

4th advice : If you insist in using Windows Mediaplayer, try Haali's 
latest experimental splitter, there should be a link in the english news 
section of our homepage.
