the conversion with DVD Santa can only work if the file plays correctly 
in Windows Mediaplayer (preferred : good old WMP 6.4, search for 
mplayer2.exe on your Windows drive), or better Zoomplayer/MPC/TCMP.

Try our very latest pack from 
http://www.matroska.org/~robux4/pack/Matroska_Pack_Full_v1.1.2rc3.exe to 
resolve the audio issue, and try again. VLC is a great player, but 
doesnt help here as its not DirectShow based, but DVD Santa uses 
DirectShow to open the MKV files. If .mkv files are not recognized in 
DVD Santa (must : 4.0 !) , simply set it to 'All files' in the opening 
dialogue, we are about the resolve this issue with the DVD Santa developers.
