How can you expect help, if you dont tell us what you have tried 
already, and why it failed ?
What can be easier than downloading VLC player, opening the MKV movie 
and playing it ?
What is there that can not be figured out by a person of normal 
intelligence ?

You sure as hell must be from the USA, those guys are really used to get 
everything free-to-mouth, and to complain HEAVILY if its not as easy as 
that ....


P.S. I for myself would feel embarassed if i would ask for a 'fools 
guide' for myself, but maybe thats a problem of my age/generation ....
