I give up!
I've tried everything, codecs and players. I don't even know how many of them I've installed on my PC and I can't play mkv files.

My PC is Intel Pentium 4, 2.8GHz and 512 MB of RAM. I've followed every set of instructions I've found on Internet, but I can't still play mkv files. Why?

Core Media Player says "Incompatible Interface". I have a 5.1 soundcard, so I guess the incompatible interface could be something related to the video card.

Is there any other hardware requirement?

The file is suposed to be in h.264 (for the video) and AAC for the audio. I have all codecs for playing that kind of files.

Would you please help me? I DO need to open those files.

  I assume when you say "everything" you mean that you have all the MATROSKA codecs. If not, you can download here: 
  Make sure that you also get MEDIA PLAYER CLASSIC. Install all the codecs, splitters, mux tools, MKVextractGUI, and also get the "MatroskaDiag", very important. The Diag will tell you if the codecs you have are right. If after you do all that you still can't play the file..... well i think your file might be corrupted. I hope that that is not the case but, it happens sometimes. Good luck, your going to need it.
