I read your other email that you have Realmedia player installed also,
and to be honest i dont know what to tell you what could be missing. How
big is the file ? Where did you get it ? Any hints in the filename what
compression standard was used for video and audio ?
There is a tool that might help you here, its a new tool from Toff
called matroskadiag.exe , it will analyse your MKV file and tell you
what filters are missing for playback. Here is the link to it :
