some codecs like Realvideo (RV9/10) or ON2 VP 6/7 are not supported on 
MacOSX. This is not our fault though, but failure of the companies 
making the codecs, and of the file creators using this in their MKV 
files and not considering the incompatibility with Mac's .

Use the mkvinfo tool coming with the MacOSX compilation of MKVtoolnix, 
to find out what codec IDs your MKV files have, for its audio, video and 
subtitle tracks.
