Huh. Funny. I managed to get MKV to easily play in Windows XP, Mac OS  
X and Debian (yes, I did have all three operating systems running in  
my house at once). None of them gave me any problems.

Well, most of what you need is in the Matroska web site. It's highly  
probable that the video you were playing probably was using a codec  
(which is different from a container, which is what MKV is) that you  
didn't have installed. I personally recommend VLC, which has a large  
selection of common codecs built in, thus you shouldn't have to  
download a thing after you install it.

My, aren't we pleasant. Well, when you can suggest a container that  
can handle multiple video streams, multiple audio streams, subtitles,  
attachments, extensive metadata, is compatible with almost all  
codecs, and is operating system agnostic, please let me know.
