I know I have to "disable lacing" when I use MKVmerge, and I m doing so.
The biggest problem is, Win 98 users cannot replay MKV files at all if
they install Codec Packs 0.6+
I'm not absolutely sure, but in my test, the last Splitter that works
for Win 98 is 18.104.22.168 dated July.
Of cource I'm using "Release" build, not "Unicode Release", when testing
So, I'm guessing if you recommended a codec pack for general ppl
including win98 users, v0.5 would be the only one possibility.
I'd rather recommend MPC, because it does work for win98 altho DirectX9
