Hi David,

please send requests like this to matroska-users at lists.matroska.org in 
future, to assure you get help quicker. I am in Italy in vacation for 
the time being, mailing you via GPRS (paid by my company ;).. lol).

In the matroska full pack, which i assume you are having installed, 
there is a tool called


It's a file examination tool to find out what streams/tracks your MKV 
file is containing, and if a suitable decoder filter for it is installed 
on your computer. If not, it will point you at a place where to find 
this decoder. If this doesnt help, send the txt log from the app to the 
email list adress given above, and we wil help.

Bear in mind, matroska is a general use container format and we are not 
responsible for the content people pack into MKV files, and we dont know 
normally what kind of compression methods they will use for audio and 
video compression. matroska is the one container with the biggest number 
of supported audio, video and subtitles standards, that makes it hard 
sometimes to help our users, especially when those people distributing 
the files don't give any form of advice with the files.
