Let me try to explain my problem to you.
I have downloaded 124 .mkv files which are just files not a movie.
I now need to extract/or whatever to make these files into a movie.
I am not asking how to play the move, but I want to know how to make these 
files into a movie, which I will be able to play using the vlc player.
and so on up to
also includedare files
up to
So maybe now you will understand my Question. I want to know how to turn 
these files into a "Movie" that I can play on a player.
