Your MKV file likely contains Realvideo ( RV9/RV10 ) and those won't 
play in VLC for the time being. Real Networks does not release open 
decoder sources under GPL, and the VLC devs will follow the GPL to the 
letter. Xine and mplayer on Linux circumvent the GPL by linking to the 
existing win32 DLLs, the plugins can be found on the net.

On Windows, install Realplayer or RealAlternative ( google ), install 
our full pack from http://packs.matroska.org and all should work fine.
