That's because libmatroska is used for creating files. What player  
are you trying to use? MPlayer and VLC work with MKCs out of the box.

It's not a codec, it's a container. There's a big difference.

That's because you downloaded the wrong thing. Just use MPlayer. As a  
Linux user, I'm going to assume you know your way around the command

Believe it or not, but I've had no problem using MKVs in Debian,  
Ubuntu, Mac OS X, and Windows. VLC and MPlayer support the files, no  
issues whatsoever, so I'm going to assume it's a problem with your  
media player not supporting MKV at all. Please go back and research  
the issue a little more before complaining. Thank you!
