Hi, I had problems decoding MKV files under linux...
I also found that a lot of people have the same problems under different video
I had different error messages with some players like "unknow codec
I managed to play MKV files with Kaffeine under Kubuntu 5.4 that seem to be
encoded with some Matroska codec related to RealPlayer (?)...
The trick :
Download and extract the realplayer codecs "rp9codecs-20050115.tar" from
MPlayer's codec directory
Thers a line called "decoder.external.real_codecs_path:" in
Just uncomment it and put the path where you installed the realplayer codecs.
Voilà, it works for me !
