what Steve forgot to tell you explicitely, dont try to open/play your 
MKV with Realplayer after installing it, but use MPC or any other 
DirectShow based player for that. Realplayer only needs to be installed 
on your system, so that the DirectShow Realmedia splitter can access the 
Realvideo decoding DLL's. The only alternative i know to doing that is a 
fancy program called 'realcodec.exe' ( google is your friend ), which 
will install the DLL's alone, so you dont need to have Realplayer 
installed ;-) ....
